Instead of making countless threads about which climate is more hotter or colder, which place will get its first snowfall, which climate is more subtropical, what if there was a landmass near [insert continent], etc and etc, we can use this thread to chat about these aforementioned topics. This thread can work as a general chat and discuss all things that relate to weather, environment (trees, plants) and the climate.

I always wanted to ask, which city would feel wetter, Sydney or London. But I didn't want to clog up the forum with such questions and I thought "hey, maybe in a thread like this we can create such topics?".

Sydney has both more rain and rain days. However, it's much sunnier and I honestly think you can't really think of a climate as wet if it's really sunny most of the time. London is way too cloudy and I honestly think that would make it feel much wetter than it actually is, so I'll go with London.

London, as it has more rain days > 1mm and is cloudier and cooler.

I don't think this is a good idea for a thread though. If I want to find a specific topic -eg: How often does it snow in Singapore?, I don't want to look through hundreds of pages on one thread. Easier just to find a specific thread.

It'd take a Mount Everest for that one

With all due respect, isn't that exactly the point of the forum itself?

I don't see the need for this thread. Let's close it.

I like the idea of a catch-thread for the which climates do you prefers / feels more X to. While the remaining threads are either for weather-related events or more technical climate discussions

Then the thread title and description should be changed. To have a single thread discussing "all things that relate to weather" is a forum-killer.

I think the bottom line is that some posters (especially new ones) need to learn not to post fifty-odd threads on non-starter topics and that's the only issue here!

In general I think the existing order works just fine though, I think it's a decent balance.
