can anyone using Norton confirm that it no longer describes the site as dangerous?

Has this step been taken?  See smithy 166 post below

"I can't answer the rest, but Norton will flag the site as "unsafe" until the webmaster of shipspotting.com cleans the site up, then requests a re-test from Norton. Until the re-test is completed and no issues are found, it will continue to be flagged as dangerous."

Using the recently major updated Windows 10  I have visited the site via Chrome and Firefox several times over the past two days with no evident problem

I have AVG installed and that produced no messages about the problem

Thank you for the suggestion Bob.

It would help if you proposed some criteria for vessels to be eligible for the Ancient Motor Vessel and discussed them with Adrian Ford.  His profile shows that he is the Admin responsible for that category

Adrian I am sure would be pleased to receive ideas from others

As FAQ Editor I will be happy to assist in the drafting of a Site Standard in a format consistent with others

Juergen. please do not leave the site.  It needs your skill in identifying unknown ships as well as your excellent photographs

Both the Webmasters are away this weekend.  I am sure they will wish to contact you

The most I have been ever received is USD 400.  A friend was offered USD 250 recently.  Paper work is required.  In all such cases I was approached after the pic was seen on this site

I make no charge for publications by volunteer enthusiast groups who distribute to their members.

In all cases I obtain published credit for my name, and a copy of the publication(s). 

I understand that such action by me and others competes with professionals like our wonderful Tomas.  But that is the way the world operates and my choice will not change that.

I agree John.  That is very helpful information for visitors to Zeebrugge.

To keep the information readily available to those who missed this Forum, or forget about it, I hope someone will prepare a Shipspotting Locations upload.

Don't forget, as the Site Standard says "IN THE DESCRIPTION, STATE DIRECTIONS TO THE CAMERA LOCATION AREA
use the words you would tell a friend. "

For full information go to Category Standards and Guidance for Shipspotting Locations, reached from the Support tab on the Home Page see http://www.shipspotting.com/support/faq.php?category=Shipspotting%20Locations

I have uninstalled Malwarebytes and am now relying on AVG CloudCare AntiVirus.

The pop up windows about blocking no longer appear

I have the No Coin browser extension as earlier advised by Cody

Until I reinstalled Malwarebytes after a 2 month absence, I did not get any messages.  Now I regularity do - from Malwarebytes, stating that Coinhive has been blocked.

I have never noticed any slowing of my CPU

I usually use Chrome as my browser, occasionally Firefox which gives the same result

Good luck Cody and David.  I hope you get appropriate advice from Henrik

Hi Pieter

Re "A category should be based on WHAT the ship is, not WHERE it is. This approach would also imply that for instance  "casualties", "ships in drydock"  and "storm pics" should no longer be continued. I would not be opposing that. "

If your suggestion was adopted, how would you suggest dealing with those vessels now categorised as Inland Vessels?

Two men who died on board one of the world's biggest coal ships in 2012 were victims of foul play, but there was no evidence the company was involved in their deaths or engaged in any cover up, a coroner has found.
