John,

Here is a notice that was put in the Forum with regard to Gross Tonnage on May 26th 2015, I am sure that you would have seen it.

Hi John,

As Bob has said you have been a member of this Website long enough to have an understanding of the problems associated with Gross Tonnage, a Website that no longer exists.

Please do not drag this topic out as you have done in the past, I sincerely hope that you will accept the fact that the vessel was converted from a Bulk Carrier to a Tanker and that you will leave it at that and not continue to argue about it, it is a Fait Accompli.

Regards
Ken Smith

Tell about it Bob, I tried very hard during my time to resolve this problem and I share your  concerns, but there is little that the Administrators can do without the support of the Technical Side and that I am afraid is sadly lacking.
Regards
Ken

Denis & Barry, the link has been there for sometime and I have referred to it in the Forum on occasions  http://www.shipspotting.com/gallery/my_settings.php I have ticked the box but whether it works or not is a good question, I suspect it is primarily for Maritime Connector, there were a few problems in that area.

Ken

You are absolutely right Derek, you may recall I often referred to this being a Two Tiered Website (Them & Us) and how requests from our side were very difficult to achieve and mostly ignored but that said I have to say there have been occasions when a request has been granted.

I am afraid it is still ongoing and is under discussion by the Admin team as I speak, unfortunately it is only when you have held the position of Webmaster as you and I have that you fully appreciate the situation.

On the subject of Hits and Comments to photographs I have lost count of the times I have raised it but I did have a little success with "Likes and Not Likes" which can only be made by a member of the Website and asked for it to be extended but nothing came of it.

My argument is that there is nothing wrong with members linking their photographs, the opportunity is there when uploading for them to do so but linked photographs should not create a hit giving a Photograph a three figure rating, also comments create a hit and they need to be reviewed as well, I have often seen a misspelled word or missing IMO number given as a comment to a photograph and that can produce unjustifiable hits much to the delight of a member.

This is a Member only Website and only Members should be able to add a Hit, I use the word loosely but they should not come from outside Sources, it is grossly unfair to those members that simply upload to the Website.
 
It has been dragging on for far too long and the whole system needs to be reviewed.

Regards
Ken

Derek,

I too am very sorry that you are standing down, between us you and I were a good team and solved many problems over the years and were always in close contact with each other almost on a daily basis.

I will certainly miss our discussions but I guess we must move on now and leave it to others to perform the daunting tasks involved in keeping this Website in good order.

I sincerely hope that we can remain in touch and I wish you well for the future.

Kindest Regards
Ken Smith

Hi Jadran,

I note your comment with regard to our discussion some time ago and that you were at the time struggling a little and is why we had that discussion but I have to say you have moved on now with your photographic input to the Website so well done.

Picking up on Tomas's comment I have often quoted his Slogan " Post Quality and not Quantity" but I guess that I am guilty of sometimes overdoing it, I have always had a habit of posting three of a ship ie Bow/Profile/Stern when it is possible to do so, many years ago I had received requests for the Profile shots from members who enjoyed them.

However, in view of what Tomas is saying and I do agree with his sentiments I will cut back on my postings from now on and especially if I have a photo already on the Website, I have to confess that I was responsible for cutting back from Six to Four on one given Date.

I sincerely hope that members will pick up on this slogan of "Quality and not Quantity" I certainly intend to from now on.

Kind regards to All
Ken

Hi Brian,

Interesting information, I did arrange with Henrik for this ENI box to be set up but sadly it is not used as well as it should be, most Inland Vessels do display the ENI number, often quite prominently, so there is really no excuse for not adding it, hopefully when doing a Rhine Trip or whatever members will bear this in mind, they are all searchable in the same way as the IMO number.

Hi Bob,

I have had that problem occasionally but it has been reported.
As a suggestion upload the photograph and then Edit it by ticking the box again, it often does the trick.

Ken

I am not sure how the "Place of Build" is to be restored, it was originally supplied by "Gross Tonnage" and they no longer exist but many complaint's were received about inaccuracies in the information they provided in all the fields.

If we are to provide this information ourselves then it would need to be accurate with a team working full time to search for and to keep the information updated, how this can be achieved with the current lack of Admin activity I just do not know.

Not everyone is interested to have this information but those that wish to have it can make their own search so with this in mind I think the only solution would be for the Website to provide LINKS for search purposes, this I feel would be a practical way forward.

Regards
Ken

I am inclined to agree with Bob and Stan with regard to linking of photographs which result in inflating Hits.

I have argued this for a long time with the Owner and IT man and whilst Webmaster tried very hard to to get this changed and my point was that HITS to photographs should only be allowed by registered members of this Website and not influenced by outsiders.

When I joined this Website it was a Small Community, I have a membership number of 75, the most recent member's number is 138097 which is an indication of how the Website has grown over the years and we have to remember this is basically and I use the word loosely a "Hobby" Website for sharing Ship Photographs and general discussion on shipping matters.

I am afraid  that with the advance of the Social Media we have to keep up with the times, sadly many that have joined do not support the Website with photographs but use it for their own ends to gain information and regrettably sometimes steal our photographs but as has been said so many times that is the risk we must accept.

We cannot stop progress but I feel very strongly that we should only allow Hits to photographs from Members of the Website, I also feel that a Comment should not generate Hits, I do know from experience that Comments have been used for this purpose.

I note that Bob has referred to the Old Site when we had a "Top Posters" list, a great sigh of relief went up when it was not included in the New Site, unfortunately it now has a replacement with the advance of the Social Media.

These are my personal thoughts based on many years of working on this Website and the knowledge I have gained.

Kind Regards
Ken

Thanks Derek, it was a situation that needed a swift response for the integrity of the Website, fortunately my experience and knowledge of the Website was helpful in dealing with it.

Kind Regards
