1  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Japanese ship identification on: April 19, 2018, 02:25:40 pm
Many Japanese domestic vessels have their names only in Japanese characters but also have numbers showing, usually on bridge and superstructure boards. Does anyone know of any source for identifying such vessels through these numbers?

I am not planning to quit - yet - but I am somewhat concerned about the apparent "laissez faire/anything goes" approach of the current admin team. This site was supposed to be about members' own photographs -not those trawled from miscellaneous sources and flea markets.
If the site standards are not to be adhered to, change them! Otherwise there is no point in having rules.

Frans: That would perhaps explain why have never had a response from admins when I have reported errors with uploaded photos

I have never quite understood the relevance of a sailing ship for training in a modern navy. Sensibly, the Royal Navy doesn't have one.

Site Standards clearly say:
“If you own or hold prints, slides or negatives that have been purchased or acquired by other means but you are not certain of the copyright owner you must NOT upload to the website, photographs not taken or owned by the member must clearly state in the description the name of the person that owns the copyright and that the member has approval to upload them to this website. “
Judging by the number of old, unaccredited photos that are appearing these days, I am wondering if it has become admin policy to ignore that rule?

There was such an announcement but it related to some rule changes that had been made. It was a lot more that 2 years ago. I think it was about 2008.

Site rules are quite clear about the variation in angle between consecutive shots. Sometimes it is a long time before contraventions are noticed by admins.

If it is accurate, unbiased, unsensationalised news you want, The Daily Mail is not the place to find it

Sorry, but I am no computer nerd and don't really understand all this Coinhive stuff. I have always used Windows 10 and Chrome with an AdBlocker and have never noticed anything unusual when uploading photos. Would I be best to refrain from posting pics until this thing is sorted out?

Capt. Ted: If you prefer to see pics of "boring box-boats and bulkers" (I said that just for the alliteration, with all the 'b's), that is your prerogative but I like to mix the old and the new - to keep up with the trends as well to hark back to the past. I do, however, take your point about the pics of long-dead photographers that have been trawled from public-domain library sites.  I don't think that was an aim of the site when it was established. But that's just my own view.
