1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: It is really disapointing..... on: Yesterday at 03:41:20 pm
Re: It is really disapointing..... that there's like every 2-3 months threads pop out where a couple of people complain how the staff is unfair towards their photos & comments, etc.  On the other hand (!), there's always another couple of people who (I dare to say, literally copypaste their earlier replies or sayings (because there's nothing new can be said about one & the same stuff)) in support of the staff & how they are a "unpaid volunteers that are doing all so hard to keep the site running for everyone & for free etc".  Oh, there's always a couple of long sitting here & well respected people who have a sack of photos they were so passionately uploading throughout the years & when their time comes, they threat the rest that they will QUIT (!) the site & remove ALLLLLLLLLLLL of their photos just 'cause they are unhappy that a some annoying & unresolved trend is still going. I rest my case.
^ Speaking of those people who quited the site & removed all >1000 of their photos, as well as those who are in the process of leaving & those who plan to leave in the nearest future - if so, then what was the point in bothering contributing your time & efforts in the site when in the end you going to declare it's a waste of everything & quit (especially with taking back all of your stuff with you) just 'cause you're temporally mad during this moment at something in the internet?
Why not to simply share your photos & view others', which is I think was the initial point of the site, instead of complaining one & the same against the staff & how the site is being run, or posting same pattern sayings (everyone with some logic would realize anyway) in support of the staff & their policy? Lol, if the unfair/"unfair" admin deleted your comment or photo, why bark right back at it like if he came & broke something in your own house?  Really, I thought there are serious & understanding adults here, but in my eyes the forum is barely any different from those forums I came across which were mostly populated by younger people, to whom I have some understanding if they pretty seriously & openly complain about something in the internet... unless they are just trolling.
I think everyone has a right to add their 2 cents by contributing another 4-6 photos of a "boring ship" which is already uploaded here a hundreds of times, especially when the site can be also viewed as "another hard drive" for your (good & accepted) photos' storage, if I can say so.

It was back in January when I suddenly spotted on Marinetraffic that ROLLDOCK STAR came to my port out of sudden.  So I had to take an annoying bus ride through traffic jams & then some 45 mins of walking to the spot so I could see by own eyes & take photos of the first ever heavylifter for me (it was even her maiden voyage), no matter that it was -15C out there, and 45 mins walking back to bus & ride it home.  Quite a feat, but it was worth it!  Actually I like making my shipspotting tours impressive, especially if it's for some interesting or long-waited ships, so 3 hours walk around the harbour, eating chips & drinking lemonade makes up the mood during such, lol.  But that's only if it's really worth it, so keeping an eye on the AIS is the first thing to do before daring to go shipspotting or it might be an empty port or "Gah, again same ships like the last time! -.-"
Very rarely I have to risk to get a good shot, like climbing up the fence no matter that there are security cameras everywhere & a bunch of cars rushing behind, looking like an idiot. xD

So uploading 6 photos of same vessel from one date as 1-2 per day or between many days/weeks/months would be wrong? I thought it was about reducing the pressure on site by limiting the amount of photos a member plans to upload non-stop during one day.

The vessel is already built & it's currently berthed (for several months) at "Yantar" shipyard in Kaliningrad here where I live...

Such an amazing concept - it puts the Harman M2 Runners to a new level! Look at this yourself. Shocked
But I still don't know about the "unmanned part" - what about docking & especially when you need to throw a line to those fellows on the pier?

For me the reporting system works fine. Using it often & checking after a while if the error was corrected - so far good work by the staff on maintaining the database being in order!

Yet it's fun making people go like "How come this boring photo with no comments got so many hits?".  Grin
