recently ive been exploring a lot of local places and noticed one of the groups seem to be tagging their name on the walls doors and white boards and was wondering :-

what are peoples opinion on tagging in places ?

Tagging with pens and paints, ultimate no no.

However there is nothing wrong in my eyes with chalk on chalkboards, or just using your finger to write in some dust....it's not permanent at all and almost everyone I know does it. My bugbear is people leaving those calling cards all over the place, I rip them up if I see them.

Same here always seeing people leaving websites ect and think that its a shame and going to a recent explore where I have seen a local group leaving thier mark in most of the rooms where as ill only take photographs and leave nothing behind.

Lol at being stuck in the fence haha

I agree with Mookster on this one as if its non perminant it doesnt constitute vandalism.

The only other time it falls into a fail is if its a sensetive location and through even doing on a white board gives secca the heads up that people are getting in and so tighten sec measures for others. :thumb

Its not a pissing compo at the end of the day and the images captured state youve visited

I noticed this at a few places as well & wondered the same thing, it wasn't until somebody pointed it out to me that i realised it was urbexer's names (i saw scrawlings on the walls in marker pen & instantly assumed it was bored kids/chavs), completely agree with what everyone else has said on here. Left my name in the dust in a few places but that's it. Next they'll be taking spraypaint & spraying shitty 'tags' everywhere, the kind that you see everywhere that consist of just a word sprayed really quickly onto a wall done by muppets who probably go about trying to make out that they're actual graff artists... :whyu:

      A former ballhaus somewhere in the eastern of Germany. At the moment they are renovating the building and for a small amount of money you can get acces for taking photographs.

      Little house somewhere in Belgium. Seems there lived an 103 year old lady and after a fire on the upper floor she left the house. Her son still comes there every week to feed the cat.

      Hello everyone! 
      Some months ago I went on a trip to Serbia, and thanks to a member of this forum who gave me advice on some locations I was able to do some good urbex in the meantime!
      Here is my report!
       
      (I tried my best searching for info on this place on Serbian websites with the help of Google translate, I hope this is accurate!  )
       

       
      This place is an abandoned luxury hotel in the Sumadija district, Serbia.
      The palace is very old: it was built between 1868 and 1872 by the prince Mihail Obrenovic, basing on architect Koste Shreplovic’s design.
       
      Originally built to be the Serbian National Assembly palace, it became the residence for the Obrenovic dynasty when the Serbian capital was moved from Kragujevac to Beograd.
       
      In 1903 a coup took place in Beograd: members of the Obrenovic family were either exiled or killed. But in the following years a railroad was built from the city to Beograd, so the palace became an hotel where all of those who travelled daily from the capital would stay.
       
      In 1964 the hotel was sold to a Serbian company, which bankrupted in the early 2000s.
      In October of 2005 it became property of the government, which tried to sell it but without success. Nowadays it still lays abandoned.
       


       
      The most amazing thing of this palace is the dancing hall: it's just too beautiful!
      One thing I have to point out is that, even if it has been abandoned since 2005, the building has very little traces of vandalism and it still is in a very good shape. This is exactly the opposite of what happens in Italy.
       

       
      Hope you liked my report guys! I'll see you in the next exploration!
