1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Crappy Stuff on Shipspotting dot Com on: September 25, 2016, 11:16:21 pm
Well Cornelia

I am more or less on your page.
I also reduced my uploadings, sitting however on about 5000 pictures,,and just don,t have the "zeal" anymore to do it here. I know , my pictures are sometimes may be not the top 3,, but when I see all that crap what is nowadays shown in top 3,, then may be it is time to ask for changes.
And yes,,to cut off the linking would be the easiest way of doing so, or at least do not make hits on an outside web as counting on this site.
Well anyhow, something has to change,,otherwise one may really have to start looking for a different way of presenting ones own pictures somewhere and somehow else.

It is clearly blurry on the right side,, the name and port are blurry,,and the IMO number is impossible to
read,,not because of the distance but because total blurry in that area and the crane beside it too.

hyWe uploading a picture like in the first place !!!! To make when it is deleted a fuss ?

Well,, I often stated that these "hits" for any price will destroy the "existng unity" of this site, if that still exists. Sadly to see. When I sign in and see the same names again and again in the top 3, thats a reason
to sign off again. At least if they would be interesting, but again and again same locations and often same style ships.  Pretty much boring for me I can say.
To stop it would be as stated for the sites financial side not so good, for the viewable side most probably very much.  I get sometimes so bored here by the same type of pictures and same peoples who comment that I sometimes wake up when my nose hits the keyboard !!!!  Well at least I still wake up !!!!!

good day all

All your replies and agreements and not agreements sound good and not

We should take a little into account that not all spotters live in fjords of Norway or close to Maasvlakte
in NL or on the elbe river at Hamburg, where naturally photographers attracted to and through that a
kind of congestion seem to happen.
I know that I am fortunate that I can take pictures usually always in different places also when of course
the nature of the vessel and trade area let me call ports like New Orleans more often then others.
However I would like to point out, that some photographers make lengthy trips, even vacations to be
for a while in areas where more ships are present and then they getting told,   Nope can,t post this because photographers posted this vessel already.
In my opinion, accept the doubling up from different photographers for that very reason as long it,s not more than 4 as it is now. To those who consistently uploading the same tug or a vessel calling the same ports,, well I might have also somehwere in my 20000 plus pictures some doubling, but uploading those on purpose again and again,,, whats the point of doing so ?
But making the superior quality the only or main consideration, or that a shot exist already will not do good for the site in general as it is easy to start here, also when one does not have a Canon 7D with a 100-400 oven pipe as lense.
I think those who pushing for such matters in specific are a little off from the message this site had initially,,go by our standards and you are welcome.   

No offense to anyone, just my opinion

Well,,dust explosions in corn silos is still today a serious matter also when it can be controlled rather good since some years. Dust explosions on ships I never heard off.
One of the most dangerous for is certain types of steel shavings and such which "eat away" the oxygen,,which makes it extreme dangerous because mostly nobody exspects that that going to happen.

Well,, to a certain point I must agree with SD7,, imagination for ship names is not really wanted a prime virtue anymore .
But then it comes all down to easy and that means texting/twitter etc with no thinking.
Isn,t that the future we all wanted. A family sits at the dinner table and texting each other because
in whole sentences talking is lost to them ?

Then the Pilot and Capt were seemingly on a longer coffee break already when they did not take that
into the Master/Pilot exchange communication when the pilot boarded the ship. !!!!

As for tugs usage, the is today standard avoid them where possible, for me on a handy-size bulker in most ports it is anyhow compulsory to use two, often mandated by draft and sometimes anyhow as most bulkers
do not have thrusters in the first place.

she has 3 bow thruster, at least 2 or 3 stern thrusters, twin screws ?
when one sees the speed fwd and how long they try to push the bow off ( above 4-5 kn fwd the bow thrusters are almost useless) and then of course after the crash fwd the stern swings unstoppable in, the pilot and the capt really must have been on coffee break at the wrong time !!!!!!

ok, I referred to your first posting,, where you write it was a black out and no power anymore for the steering. But should not then the emergency generator have automatically started ?  As far as I know it is a requirement by class that in case of blackout the EM gen kicks in automatic.
Would be interesting to know if it did or not
13  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Large MSC container ship blocking the Suez Canal on: June 02, 2016, 12:28:09 pm
mcmoha

well,if a full blackout happens the emergency generator kicks in automatically. This gen supplies
power for essentials only, but it includes one steering gear motor. Of course nowadays there is no manual hydraulic operated steering wheel on the bridge, the emergency set up for steering a ship is
nowadays from the steering room. On a big vessel like that, even getting there takes 1-3 minutes depending where the peoples are who have it in their emergency duty plan.
Even when it can be activated in that time period, those steering arrangements are not easy to operate and when one does the monthly checks and lets steer the peoples by hand for a while to get a feel for it the general course line can be kept at sea but steering with the set up the ship through a canal like the Suez is virtually impossible.

Deep Sea Diver,,, that is nothing real unusual that vessels sail long distances after a grounding.
They sure had divers to asses below water damage and the gen=sets will have been surveyed by the class.
 
15  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Large MSC container ship blocking the Suez Canal on: June 01, 2016, 06:48:39 pm
Didn,t they have a 2nd generator on stand by running during the Suez transit ?

sounds funny to me,, generator problems with power outage.
When I transit with any ship a channel or entering port a 2nd generator is always running
on stand by.
