1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Is there a site problem? on: Yesterday at 07:02:27 am
Got this message this morning from AVG : Connection discontinued, because of this script: JS:SCRIPTIP-inf [Trj]  after which I could no reconnect immediately. Only about 15 minutes later when I tried again the site opened in the normal way, without any messages. AVG considered the level of threat 1 out of maximum of 3.

There are still many new photo's being uploaded, so apparently not everybody is scared enough to stop visiting.

I support the voices that ask for information about why this is continuing and what the progress is related to solving the problems.

Just got a new pop-up, which immediately disappeared and was replaced by a statement from my computer that I was about to download an exe programme. As the extensions said .ru I refused, went back to shipspotting and the pop-ups have disappeared. It could have caught me (or you) unaware, so not everything is safe around here.

Windows 7 (yes that old) and Firefox produce no problems any more.

Is there an option that Henrik will immediately tell us that the site IS using this Java Script and updating to a new one IS required? That will take away a lot questions.

just another experience:

When opening SS in the normal way I get a pop up about the Javascript, and whatever I do, the next thing will be another pop-up where I can download a file to update my Java. I can annul this but then I come back to the original pop-up and therefore I cannot open the site any more.

However, I just received a PM and that I could open without the any pop-up appearing. Through the buttons on the top of the PM message I could into SS in the normal way. So it is obviously through your existing short-cut that the problems arise.

not piracy as such, but piracy as a cover-up.

BP R-Class tankers

https://www.bp.com/en/global/bp-shipping/our-fleet/r-class-overview/bp-resolution.html

Very recently several pictures of the new British Resolution were posted as Chemical and product tankers, no doubt because she paid an empty visit to Amsterdam. Checking the BP website I found that she and her sisters have been designed to carry crude oil and black products,and are not epoxy coated. Therefore, in the definition we apply on this site, she can not be considered as a clean product tanker(LR2). Hence I moved the shots to the crude oil category.

Please keep note of this when posting photo's of her and her sisters.

Thank you.

From what I understood from the poster (and his comments to his picture of the whale catcher), copyright laws in the former Soviet Union were non-existent. (the picture was owned by the "people").
The main reason to adhere to copyright laws in my opinion is the possibility that the site can be sued for breaching these laws if photos are published without permission. No one would dare to publish any Fotoflite stuff. Given the situation in the USSR as described by the poster, the chances that the site will be sued in this case are next to zero. And if the photo in question would have to be deleted, than it is not unlikely that many other shots by the same poster would have to suffer the same fate. From the looks of it the commotion regarding this photograph has arisen because of the nature of the comments made and not specifically because of the copyright issue.

I would therefore suggest to let this sink in for a while before making any drastic decisions regarding both the deletion of the shot(s) or leaving the site.  

PS this is my own personal opinion.

Thanks Vlad, obviously these relative newcomers in Korean shipbuilding did not get the suppport that the big three (Daewoo, Hyundai and Samsung) always seem to have enjoyed. STX will also probably go down permanently.

Is the SPP closure permanent or are the yards mothballed for better times?

Quote "I've just had an interesting chat with PR and legal people from a cruise line who have found my photos online and are concerned about protecting their copyright property (the logos and names of the ships)".End Quote

If shipowners start behaving like that, and even may start to charge "portrait rights" for their ships, we will end up with taking pictures just four ourselves...

Thanks, Hannes, probably bought with storage duties in mind.

Update, as I write this Mongolia is passing Dover, after having spent several days at anchorage, no doubt (hopefully) to test all systems. It looks like we have seen the last of her.

Hello All

Yes I heard about this 1,000,000 tonne tanker on the BBC news this morning

Best Wishes
Adrian

Adrian the BBC was less far off the mark than you may think. It is a Suez-Max tanker, also known as 1,000,000 barrel tankers...
