International Commerce Centre
I see you were involved in editing International Commerce Centre, in particular you were adamant that there were only 108 floors. While sources like the CTBUH and Emporis say 108, other sources like the building developers, Ritz Carlton Hotel and various reviews I have read all talk about 118 floors. In a previous discussion on Talk:International Commerce Centre, you mention you had the blueprints used by the CTBUH to calculate 108 floors. It would be great if you could send me a copy of the blueprints so perhaps I could come up with some wording for the article to explain this 10 floor discrepancy - you can click here or use the 'E-mail this user' link from my user page.

List of Tallest Residnetial Buildings in the World
There is an ongoing discussion on the talk page of this article between me and User:Longwayround. And there is a need of third party opinion, the discussion is over the following subjects:
- Reliable sources, the user User:Longwayround, claims the sources (CTBUH, Skyscraperpage, and Emporis) are not reliable and he says that there is a need of more secondary and tertiary sources.
- Topped out status of Princess tower. (As per Emporis the toweris topped out, but elsewhere it is mentioned as under construction)
- Grammar of the article.
- Ranking of the buildings.
Your opinion over the discussion at the talk page of List of Tallest Residential Buildings in the World will be highly appreciated.
A vs. An
When "u" makes the same sound as the "y" in "you," or "o" makes the same sound as "w" in "won," then a is used. The word-initial "y" sound ("unicorn") is actually a glide [j] phonetically, which has consonantal properties; consequently, it is treated as a consonant, requiring "a" instead of "an." (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/591/1/). This is why your recent edits to U.S. state (here and here) were reverted. YBG (talk) 05:19, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Cut and Paste Move
Hi, and thank you for your contributions to Wikipedia. It appears that you recently tried to give 200 West Street a different title by copying its content and pasting either the same content, or an edited version of it, into another page with a different name. This is known as a "cut and paste move", and it is undesirable because it splits the page history, which is needed for attribution and various other purposes. Instead, the software used by Wikipedia has a feature that allows pages to be moved to a new title together with their edit history.
In most cases, once your account is four days old and has ten edits, you should be able to move an article yourself using the "Move" tab at the top of the page. This both preserves the page history intact and automatically creates a redirect from the old title to the new. If you cannot perform a particular page move yourself this way (e.g. because a page already exists at the target title), please follow the instructions at requested moves to have it moved by someone else. Also, if there are any other pages that you moved by copying and pasting, even if it was a long time ago, please list them at Wikipedia:Cut and paste move repair holding pen. Thank you.
