Only those who have absolutely no relation or knowledge in ships could come up with names like that.

Via request by a Webmaster, I'd say.

Accidentally just came across this interesting ship:

Pretty curvy?  Grin

Couldn't find any photos of her on here, so if someone of you have this in your archives - please, do share!

Just remembered these 2 same looking heavylifters:
LIFT-ON - http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1767700
LIFT-OFF - http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/photo.php?lid=1813523

And of course, BigLift's ships with names that make no sense:
HAPPY DYNAMIC
HAPPY RIVER
HAPPY DELTA
HAPPY STAR
HAPPY DIAMOND
HAPPY SKY

Oh & just came across a happy tanker called HAPPY FELLOW.

Beside all that, here are more creative names:

8  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / IMOs on: March 04, 2016, 07:57:07 pm
I'm curious about this for a long time...
Ships that were built in the 50s have IMO starting with 5, 60s - with 6, 70s - with 7, etc.  That's correct for most of cases & for them if the IMO starts with, say, 73 - then it's safe to say the vessel was built in 1973 or somewhen around that year.  Also correct for most of cases.  Ships built in the 90s have IMO starting with 9... I thought long ago that for those that will be built in 2000s the IMO will start from 0, for those built in 2010s - from 1, etc. Of course, that's wrong!  Even for a 2016 built ship (not a yacht) it would still start with 9.  But there are only 7 digits in IMO & what if eventually there are/were so many vessels built since the 90s, that whatever 7 digit number starting with 9 you can come up with - it's already taken.  What then?  Huh  Taking IMOs from long ago of vessels that no longer exist? Start IMOs from 0-4? Introduce 8 digit IMOs?

From my daily observations of recent uploads through out 8 years (or if you can simply look at recent uploads within 24h on any given day), I'd say there are more photos of ships on the move than moored.
10  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: What are your priorities when viewing a photograph? on: February 11, 2016, 03:52:13 pm
A) The photo itself (regarding greatness, interest, quality standards being met).
B) Name/IMO (to see if it's correct or missing for this photo).

1) Year of built (often I try to guess it by the looks of the vessel & then see if I'm right).
2) Length & Breadth (to imagine how big the ship is, of course).
3) Builder (was) (to know why this ship looks like this & sometimes to find other (sister) ships by that yard).
4) Type/Category (to know the type & see if the photo is placed correctly).
5) Owner/Manager (was) (sometimes to find their site, more ship infos & GA plans if a vessel is very interesting for me to look further in to).
7) Date/Location (to feel how fresh is this photo & where it was made, of course).

Ugly or not, I think this is a pretty cool design that looks like nothing else.
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Removal of owner/manager information from photos on: January 24, 2016, 01:47:00 pm
With Owner/Manager listed it was possible to see their fleets here & find their sites & perhaps some nice GA plans of their vessels (how I have a huge collection of them now!).  With shipbuilder listed it was possible to track down all their built ships, sister ships, find which ship is whose & why it looks that way & what makes it different from a similar ship by a different yard...

Can just browse the Funnels category...
14  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Summary pages for vessels. on: January 10, 2016, 12:49:59 pm
Would be much useful if there was shown a list of all names with number of photos per each vessel with IMO.

I meant as all names (as links) as how they are written for a given IMO vessel, Like:

E-SHIP 1 (number of photos)
ESHIP-1  (number of photos)
E- SHIP 1  (number of photos)
E - SHIP - 1  (number of photos)
etc

Such would be useful for a quick look & fast correction of group of wrongly written names. Though I think such should be visible only to staff, while members will see only list of ex-names & current name with number of photos (as how it was initially working once the Summary page was introduced).

Already existing in the Summary list of categories this vessel can be found in is pretty useful to see incorrect categories or wrong IMOs.

Regards,
Denis

If this last worked, it would make spotting the mistyped or just varied name (eg I or 1) so easy to spot.

Would be much useful if there was shown a list of all names with number of photos per each vessel with IMO.
