@ Pieter
I can follow when different spotters have a similar picture on the Maas or Elbe and such, but when the same spotter posts the same vessel again and again,, it destroys some of the integrity ? of this site.

@ David
my first ship as master, which could carry 30 TEU (8ft high) which would mean that the percentage
is then over 60000 % ?   I think such comparisement is a little off. She was a general cargo ship build
in 1972 and not a container vessel

@ Clyde,,, I am your line on that,,, but when I see that some members uploading pictures of one ship over and over again, then my understanding starts to fade........

Casaba,,same dates too ?,, because what I lerned the rule of 4 pics per ship is for any day you take a picture of a ship. We have here tugs, 70 pictures and 1/3 of them are from one person. I inquired with the site and got the answer that the 4-pic-rule as above stated counts only for a day where you take it.
In other words,,technically one could take a picture from one ship every day of the year from the same angle and one still would not violate the rules.
I my opinion that makes no sense and should perhaps be changed,,SUGGESTION: 8 per ship max per photographer, one can get it from all angles with 8 shots (fwd/aft both sides and 4x45 degree angles). If that is not enough than I have a problem with understanding what peoples thinking or what the point is about that.
Any input from the ADM team ?

Well David,, I never understood that rule,,mostly those are ships which are often only once on this site or very rare ships like converted shrimper to general cargo ships often done in south america and also africa/asia. But because the names are sometimes not there they get rigorous deleted after one year. I had at least 50-60 such vessels over time deleted because of that rule.
Absolutely not understandable. Much more important is it to have the 200th picture of the Britannia or the 600 of a E-class vessel !!!!!

hi Jadran

Personaly I would not like to have a drone buzzing around the vessel
special not on approaches. I mean since ISPS was invented everything is about terrorism
and prevention, ports were closed, sailors treated and criminals and now virtually anyone can buy a drone and fly it somewhere around. What happens for example whn a sailor has a drone or a captain flies it
into the port to look arounbd and back out !!!! and all that with no regulations whatsoever.
You can see that it is a gray/balck/shady area on a large scale !!!!
I heard for example the danish gov does now control vessels engine emissions in the Belt area by
drones,,virtually flying them over the funnel area and "sniffing" and analysing the exhaust to make
sure the vessels using the correct fuel.
There are countless possibilities and with no regulation it will be the wild west and major accidents will happen, just a mater of time !!!!

Just imagine, from my previous post a airliner comes down because a drone flies into her engines !!!

HI JADRAN

here in the US drones are more and more estricted,,for example the drone is not allowed to leave the EYE SIGHT of the operator.
Can not be flown withhin X-miles of airports and such and not above a certain height.
There re various more restrictions, like they have now a indentification numbers and if they
enter a restricted area they can be shut down, a kind of AIS.
A few other things are in the works.  A lot of close encounters are reported by airline pilots
and when the first passenger air plane with 300 peoples is down with all dead than the free wheeling as it began is most probably over and
one has to file a "kind of flight plan" which airline pilots have to do today always.
Guess comes all with it,, but at present I would say,,every country/port /facility most probably will have their own restrictions and regulation !!!
