@ Aleski

Until now I did not get from you nor Ken a satisfactory explanation why you started deleting my funnels ,at least under questionable circumstances, or could it have to do that I was in the progress to overtaking you in quantity and quality of funnels posted ? . At least that was the time when you started deleting more of more of mine, and when I posted for "test" a few clearly better funnels then yours, you ignored and left your funnels on because there were already a better one on this site,,of course yours.
Those are the facts. Another point brought already before up,,should a ADM be allowed
to post in a cathegory where he/she heavly posting him/herself and policing them.

@  Pieter

I am aware of that, that's exactly my point, but uploading is also bandwith, as every klick is and I wanted to show you and others that waiting for the little klicks is nothing compared what other members do to upload pictures and then there are people who want to restrict picture of a ship not of the uploader.
Honestly if this site will do that,,then they loose further uploads from me and I do it elsewhere. I took already all my 500 funnel pictures off because the ADM in that department
got a itchy delete button always in favour of his "funnels"  I would hate to take all my pics off because of the above. I can live with the 4 per ship per memeber, but 4 per ship
in entirety would render for me this site as useless

@ Pieter

Well what I can say,, I (and for example CaptainPeter too ) uploading usually via USB stick
which is privately purchased in ports, at a cost between $20-$50 for 500 MB sometimes 1 GB.
In other words we put considerably time , upload of a 200 kb picture can take sometimes 3-4 min and break off now and then and when more then 5-6 uploads we get kicked out of the site, and also money into this hobby.
So "hardship" what you outline as waiting 30sec is for us the norm.
Bandwidth comes down to the equipment installed and used by the web owner, and if they do not have enough bandwidth that sometimes someone has to wait 30 sec then they may be should put better equipment into the business (YES Shipspotting.com is now a business) instead of getting the idea of limiting the number of pictures which seemingly some members having in mind to solve that problem

Everyone can have his/her opinion and political correctness was never one of virtues.
but for me it is simply common sense.
this site got so popular because one could upload pictures as long as they meet the standard of the site. if there are now guys who promoting limiting pictures of ships and not
as now for photographers per ship then I seriously question in that respect common sense.

Then one has to ask oneself,,who in gods name would go out and take pictures when they know already they can not upload them. This site reached nearly 2 million pictures and its popularity because of that,, They would not have 100.000 if peoples can only upload when only 4-5 ships are in entirely per ship is allowed.
That's for me common sense. Others may call my view it unfriendly or stupid,, no problem with me whatsoever on that. But if those guys promoting restrictions then they should also come with an idea how to promote still to members to keep taking pictures and upload them.
That is after all "going out-take and upload pictures" the only life line this site has !!!

@ Cornelia
well said also !!!
Seems to me like too much individuals who would like to put their "view" stamp on the whole site.  Lets hope that common sense prevails,,but I am afraid .......

@ Pieter and others

I can,t follow your/some arguments,, this website allowed us and bandwidth Huh WHAT ??

Come on,,who profits daily from the posters/members ? They make money with our pictures
and I have to be thankfull ?,, I think, if at all,  that should may be the other way around.

and bandwidth,, well if they want to have daily upload of 500 and more pictures then I can only suggest get a better bandwidth, but not limit me by not posting at all as seems to be some  argument also,, Picture on the site already,,delete mine ?  and who decides which 5 picture of each ship can stay.
I they would to do that,, only the 5 best pictures, then they can darn well buy them from me but not get them for free anymore when I have to compete with 1000th of spotters por slots of 5 pictures

and added value,,what means that,, If I go by that the ships crest section should be deleted right now. Or for that matter a few other sections we have here.
But certainly there is added value for some members who like ships crests.

It comes own to the personal view and what one likes,,but not a added value !!!

You have to look under 'harbor (port) limits', in sea charts they are usually always outlined
12  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Rules of the Road !! on: May 12, 2015, 10:03:12 pm
Does not matter where you anchor the rules are world wide same

@ Anthony,,correct
day signal..and all the tugs involved would show tow signals

@Nigel
there is no common sense for them. !!!  I by myself made a stop and than a astern
full 1/4 mile before passing in Tampa Bay under the bridge because someone decided to anchor under the bridge in the middle of the fairway and goes fishing !!!!!
Did not move on blasting the horn 5 times ,,a few times,,,no reply when we called on
VHF,, and so on.   But was shouting up to us when we finally passed that we inconvenienced him !!!   
It is just incredible what happens out there. I was with my present ship , UBC Tampico, 5 times !!!! controlled by port state controls (MOU) in ports in the last 6 month. Pleasure crafts are not controlled whatsoever !!!!!

Hi Anthony

She is then a vessel towed,, so the NOC does not apply to that situation !!!!
The towing lights as a unit (Tug/ship/) then have to be shown as outlined in the COLREGS
The Tug however could, if needed show beside towing lights also restricted maneuverability !!

@ Pieter
