31  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: What's Your Favourite Ship Photo That You Took In 2016? on: January 02, 2017, 08:21:44 pm


I chose this one because I had not expected there to be enough light.  But my Nikon D5100 and Picasa plus some patience by me achieved this result from the ray of light that fell on the ship

Thanks for the idea Cody

Happy New Year to you too Owen!  Keep on flying your drone.

I understand your use of the word congratulations.  Thank you for including my pic on the list of stolen items.

Good man Owen for trying so thoroughly.

I am sure Instagram would ignore any threats of (costly and long term) legal action.

They may respond to a threat of media publicity.

Hi Mohammed

My camera is also  a NIKON D5100.  I am not technically inclined and it is always set to P.

When I need to resize the image from the camera to be less than the 4000 maximum accepted by the site, I choose 3950

Before selecting an editor I suggest you read the FAQ titled Photo Manipulation found from the Support tab on the Home page.  See http://www.shipspotting.com/support/faq.php?category=Photo%20Manipulation

Good luck

Thank you Owen.  Well done!

You and Derek have provided a test for Instagram policy and procedures.  They should be able to sense that.

Hi vonkamp

Most photo editing programs have a Help tab or button that will lead to instructions that apply to its software.  

I suggest you try that approach to find out how get your images to a size needed for uploading.

All members have had to learn how to do it

The information under the Photo Manipulation link on the Support tab may help. 
See http://www.shipspotting.com/support/faq.php?category=Photo%20Manipulation

Enjoy the experience

My iPhone 6 still has the intrusive advertisement problem when trying to directly access the Home page. Shortcuts to other site pages work after more than one size opening screen

Sydney time 0720 24 September,  Europe time 2320 23 September

Hi Stephen

The problem you have described has been intermittently appearing on mobile devices - iPhones, iPads etc - for some time.  Often only on the Home screen.  Members have found that they can enter the site from another screen and then get to the Home screen

It is quite a different problem from the major outage of 21/22 September 2016

I do the same as John

"I now go onto the site using the forum and move on from there, it seems to be the home page that gets the problem."

The Home page then works OK

Hi coasterwatcher

The site is a collection of member's albums, not one album (except for Shipping Companies Funnel Marks)

Always provided Site Standards are met, any member is entitled to use personal judgement as to frequency, range and location of pics of one vessel uploaded to his/her album.

Thanks Vlad

I do believe that "popularity with members" and "number of hits" can sometimes be related.  And can be a source of pride for that member and a useful interest for other members.  You are too modest!

Like most Admin work, judgement (not a rigid rule) would be needed before following up a member whose hits seem unreal - as for at least one case where over a thousand hits were recorded for a pic without one Comment being made to it

Best regards
Clyde

Thank you David for encouraging a widening of debate about this issue

I believe that top of Home page 3 pics is one of the most popular features of this site.

That is manifested by the rapidity with which hits to a photo escalate rapidly when it reaches that spot.  Obviously there are many members and visitors who regularly go there while browsing the site.  They are the same (type of) people who click on Comments on the right hand side and thus generate hits. I suspect that many just like looking at what the site has to display.  

Another source of hits comes from those who have a particular interest in a category such as Passenger or Military vessels, or the work of an admired member.

All responses are examples of the communication based strength of the site which any member can utilise.  For many it has become a path via which site based friendships are established.  That is not only pleasant for the individuals but strengthens the site and thus its future.
    
But the generation of hits from sources other than directly from members gives a distorted view of popularity with members. It is solely ego driven, not also the concept of sharing.  I hope that can be avoided by site programming, or Admin questioning of a member about unusual rapidity and volume of hits to one photo.
