Truly sad news to hear. Ken was a real gentleman, always thinking the best for the website and the membership. He also helped and encouraged me in certain occasions several years ago. Visited in Tilbury right five years ago, of course sent messages to him at that time, and looked closely the Gravesend shores to see the vantage points he used to use when photographing along the Thames. My condolences to his closest ones.

@Pekka, I remember this action very well and I have learned my lesson.
What I do not know exactly is the name of the moderator, but this is not so very important, isn't?

It's not of course.

Rgds/Gruß,

I remember what happened shortly after I became a member here in May 2006.
I had uploaded a birds view photo from a beautiful portuguese cargo ship, of course without copyright and permission.
The finnish moderator that time, (was it Pekka Laakso or Alexi Lindstroem ?), contacted me and advised me to delete the photo immediately, but I ignored. Then he contacted me again and gave me 1 hour to delete the photo, otherwise he would suspend my account. Such warning also should be given to Gena Anfimov.

But now I hope the present Admins will take necessary action, if not I go.
I have not uploaded all my photos I made withinh the last days, I will just wait and see.

Hi,

During my period in the admin team I never urged anyone to remove anything in a certain time period like an hour. In the beginning before the Site Standards policy were widely established remember we had a lot of conversations regarding deletions within the team and later with Webmasters Allan Mears, Derek Sands and Ken Smith. As far as I remember. On behalf of Aleksi Lindström I cannot state anything did he act the same way inside the admin team at that time. But you're correct the way you were given sounds very prompt action regarding a photo of which the uploader had neither the copyright nor permissions to use it.

Rgds,
Pekka

The newest of eight Tian-class multipurpose carriers, the Tian Jian was already delivered in blue colours and present funnelmark. All the others are trading in grey livery until the next drydocking. Of the 2nd newest Tian Qi I'm not sure if she has the Cosco Shipping sidetexts as haven't seen any photos of her yet.

After some quiet period Zack is back on vesseltracker.com uploading stolen images. Like this Mikhail Somov by Eugene Iron:

Niklas G (IMO: 9534303) renamed to Wilson Valencia. Remains under ATG-flag. I suppose only a chartername.

According to Marine Traffic  -  AIS,   her  route forecast is through  NOK ,  the Kiel Canal.  With speed and distance she perhaps is available for shot in the Canal tomorrow, Friday March 3rd.   Marine traffic will give and idea of her position.  I would like to see her deck cargo photographed.
Never - ever trust MarineTraffic Route Forecast function. It just calculates the route from some kind of parametres without taking account the current draught, weather forecasts, is the ship in timetable etc important factors. I suggest not using it.

Example: A similar load (a Finnish warship being transported from Italy for Turku) carried on the deck of a BigLift heavy lift was heading towards Skaw already off Esbjerg, when I clicked MT Route Forecast, and it gave the route via the Kiel Canal as result! I really have no idea why it gave that result even though the vessel was already so far approaching Danish coast.

@miraflores: there are photographers for example in Helsingborg. I just have no idea are they uploading their photos here as I usually don't browse the photos here. Just read this forum from time to time or search some certain ships I need to know are there new photos or not.

Rgds,
Pekka

Just noticed jerem80 is back after somewhat a silent period posting several photos of tugs, fishing boats and private sailing yachts to vesseltracker. And ultimately zack80 continues... Could guess several of them without any permission.

If Vesseltracker administration won't pay much attention - or at all - to those copyright violations being uploaded and several other dubious uploads like the 5 duplicates of the Lego box photo I mentioned, the site may turn into a real dumping ground of shipping/maritime related photos. That would be rather sad in my opinion.

I think that we have a good understanding with ShippingExplorer - hopefully they will not attract similar members again (this was the first that they have been aware of).  

@Matte/Pekka - any developments on Vesseltracker yet?
I don't think much will happen there. Besides the "theft80's" I sent them an e-mail about a member who uploaded 5 times the same photo of the Triple-E Lego model box (can you imagine, five times!) but so far no response from their team.

Hi all,
just a coincidence ?!?
Since some days two users upload on vesseltracker.com hundreds of photos:
jerem80 and zack80
The photos they upload can be found by various different posters on marinetraffic, vesselfinder and also here on our website.
I did ask both if they have the right to post all these photos on vesseltracker.com - one of them did not reply at all, from the other guy I got a rather aggressive reply.
Have contacted vesseltracker.com on Sunday showing links to the photos on other web pages but still see new photos by these guys.
Maybe the admins there need some more input.

Best regards,
Malte
Perhaps the thefts have been moved from ShippingExplorer to Vesseltracker under those two accounts? Shelby80, zack80, jerem80 they all have the number 80 on their nicks. I also reported those two to Vesseltracker and also via their news provider Tim S. who told me he had forwarded my complaint to the administration. Let's hope the best.
