1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: posting historic photographs - policy question on: December 24, 2020, 02:38:27 pm
I don't post very often, but I'd like to comment on this thread which, as DAVIDSHIPS has said, seems to have been hijacked/wandered off topic or whatever one likes to call it. I used to post photographs on different sites - not related to shipping - and I found that they kept being taken by "G..... Im...s" among others, without even the courtesy of asking me. I know that some sites and individual people put watermarks of some sort in the view, but all that does is obscure some vital part of the photo. The annoying (at least) habit of taking other people's photos for other purposes breaches copyright and prompts many (including me) to stop submitting them for publication. There. End of rant. I'll go back to sleep!

Thanks!

Silly question, but I imagine that there is a reason why some operators rename vessels sold for breaking and others do not. Can anyone explain the logic, please?

I found and joined this site about a year ago, as shipping has long been an interest. I uploaded around a dozen views, but most of them were rejected. I deleted the others and haven't wasted my time in sending in any since. Those rejects were in various categories, including this one. For what it's worth, my view would be to support the sub category idea from Tom Walker.
