1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: NB 508 Baltika - World's first oblique icebreaking rescue vessel,Russia on: December 18, 2014, 10:04:41 pm
After standing at the "Yantar" shipyard since May she recently moved to Fish Port here in Kaliningrad as I saw today.  It was quite a feat for me to get to that spot, but unfortunately pics are barely satisfying, lol.
There's also a some foreign tug near her, so it might indicate she could be leaving very soon.  Haven't found any recent infos about it though.

6. Socializing: OK I am honest here: There were times, when admins encouraged us, to keep conversation with other members, when this website was also good for making contacts with all kinds of people from all places. It was also very common to write comments, or bring photos to ones attention. I posted less and less to shipspotting.com because you can literally upload 100 photos and no one recognize you or writes a comment.
If everyone is just interested in uploading as many photos as possible, but forgetting about the socializing aspect, it is not really my website anymore. To be honest, just because of that, I more or less turned my back to this site and am more active on facebook. There, at least you get feedback ! Perhaps, admins should rather than stopping us wish harsh behaviour like not post comments under own photo, rather encourage us, to keep contact with other members. To sum up: WHERE is the community spirit gone ??

Might have something to do with growth of the community with time? 
Small number of registered/active users - more chances you'll get a lot of friends & just people who recognizes you, less photos uploaded per day - more chances your photo will get more hits & perhaps a comment.
Large community is more like of people who each only knows a small number of people compared to the whole amount of active users, more uploaded photos per day (with a solid competition of "that one has the photo everyone's interested in, while I have these boring ones barely anyone looks at") means high speeds & basically your ordinary photo gets quickly drowned in to the oblivion together with the following photos, so barely any chance for enough hits or comment - unless it's just from the people who know you or friends (mostly supporting one another - you commented on a lot of my photos, guess I owe you a comment on yours).

Kind regards!

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...

Ken, it doesn't work - "Contact page temporarily disabled due to maintenance."

(Same as Members Currently Online & Top 3 of the Day on the home page.)

Hey, I remember this place! I used to come for my daily charge of ships before the total blackout of the site!  Grin

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
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: many hits on all recent photos on: July 19, 2014, 08:01:38 am
It was possible to make lotsa hits back then by setting the page on auto-refresh.  Now I miss those times ever since they made hits IP-dependable. But if I ignore the current "bug" with it, some people actually know how to get lotsa hits on boring photos without a single comment.
13  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Like the photo on: July 08, 2014, 09:04:18 pm
I missed a whole week on this place & I see some new features were added.  I'm a bit curious with the "Like / etc members likes this photo" - is it something as our own thing in the fashion of Facebook? Does it have something to do with Bookmarked photos? Or can it be somehow reflected in a list of liked photos by a certain member that anyone can view & sorta subscribe for new photos in that member's collection?

I mean, if it would be said that a photo was "bookmarked" etc times by *list of members* & in those members' profiles would be a list of bookmarked photos (visible to anyone, sorta like "My favourites"), then it's great!

Kind regards!



Btw, why the "This photo has been shown etc times since it was added to the site." was added if there's already a number of hits?

they will then be forwarded direct and can then be dealt with.

^ I love it.   Because it often was when a comment about, say, wrong or missing IMO wasn't seen for several years! (no blame at anyone in particular)

Very wise decision, Ken!
