Hong Kong and Macau[edit]

I notice that Hong Kong is listed as a separate country, while Macau is listed as simply in China. First off, I would suggest listing Hong Kong as a part of China, since it is not an independent state, but if not, at least make the article consistent and treat Macau the same, since they're both pretty much the same in terms of autonomy.--RM (Be my friend) 07:50, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done The flag of China in the 'Grand Lisboa' section has been replaced by the flag of Macau. Oldstone James (talk) 17:41, 16 November 2014 (UTC)
Hong Kong and Macau are both part of China, I'm not sure why it's the only country on the list to include second tier administration units. For example, should One World Trade Center be located in New York State instead of USA? Mattximus (talk) 15:57, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Remove "list of buildings on hold"[edit]

This page is quite long, and I'm wondering if it would be best to remove the section called list of buildings on hold. First reason, is that this is a List of tallest buildings in the world, not a list of maybe one day might be one of the tallest buildings in the world. Also as per WP:CRYSTALBALL, we shouldn't include potential buildings, only buildings that are built, or at the very least being built. What do you think? Mattximus (talk) 21:04, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Remove that table. --Jklamo (talk) 21:13, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
I removed the table. It was also very outdated, with some entries listing buildings "scheduled to be completed" in 2012 (3 years ago). Disregarding CrystalBall, if this table is going to be present in this article, it should be kept up to date. JaykeBird (talk) 06:57, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

cut-off the main list[edit]

The main list is now very long therefore very hard to maintain. As result, the list is outdated. I think that 300 m threshold is reasonable and will make the list maintainable again. --Jklamo (talk) 21:19, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

I concur. It's certainly difficult to keep this list up to date with the growing number of buildings built above 300 metres, let alone 200m+. Seeing as this post has been here for a few weeks to no objections, I've made those changes now. —MelbourneStartalk 14:25, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:List of tallest bridges in the world which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 13:31, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

More up-to-date list?[edit]

Sections clean-up[edit]

Here is the analysis of current sections:

  • read - too short
  • ranking criteria and alternatives - updated, long enough, well referenced
  • tallest buildings in the world - updated, well referenced
  • Photo gallery - not updated
  • Alternative measurements
    • Height to roof - obsolete criteria, not updated, not referenced
    • Height to pinnacle - not updated, not referenced
  • Buildings under construction - not updated, mostly referenced
  • Buildings on hold - not updated, mostly referenced
  • List by continent - updated, well referenced
  • List of buildings with 100+ floors - just a link
  • Proposed - not updated, not referenced
  • Cancelled - unclear criteria, not updated, not referenced

My proposal is to remove Photo gallery (good for commons, not for wiki), Height to roof (not updatable, can be moved to separate article), List of buildings with 100+ floors (just a link), Proposed (incomplete, not referenced, crystalballish), cancelled (unclear criteria (difference to on-hold?), not updated, not referenced). Height to pinnacle section shold be shortened (400 m?) to better updatability), not sure about Buildings on hold section. Any comments ? --Jklamo (talk) 12:05, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
