Ooops, guess I should have checked the forum before posting comments on the pictures of these vessels  Embarrassed I am editing.

Now a French comes on line, and of course he will criticize everything! Haha, wrong...

I am very surprised with the "crisis" happening here.
First, to see such a huge website being run by a non profit team is absolutely fantastic. I can barely imagine all the hard work behind the scenes. So I just can show my total admiration for this to all of those who maintain and administrate the site.Including of course those who are leaving, which is always sad.

As it seems all started with deletions, I will point a few things:
- I am no master photographer, but I uploaded more than 600 pictures, and only one was deleted. So I don't think the "rules" are so tough; it just requires respect (sort out and choose the best picture, don't dump your whole memory card!)
- As I also do aviation spotting, go to sites like and try to umpload a picture: the rules there are REALLY tough, and you have to use a very good camera and shoot sharp pictures, well framed etc, if not you have no chance. In comparison shipspotting is very relaxed, giving a chance to all shiplovers to post pictures of their passion. If a few cannot stand a bit of rejection, well...

I will just say "keep calm and carry on", and thanks for letting a lot of us share their passion.

I'm quite new to this forum, and found this topic excellent. As many ship lovers, I cry when I see what is generally coming out of the yards now...
Few exceptions are for me Oriana (already a bit old!), Disney Magic (don't laugh, it had some nice and elegant lines, if you don't look at the mickey mouse stuff!) and Queen Mary2: it is huge, but they managed to keep it sleek, looking like a liner. (The fact that I worked on it during its building time is not relevant!)
Maybe a final preference for Saga Ruby, as other posters.
Those days of "nice" ships are gone, welcome to the boxes :-?  :-(
