1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: launch terribly gone wrong on: January 21, 2017, 03:21:15 am
I only get the audio at that link.

It's not a "gleaming new container ship" but rather a tugboat, kind of like this one, but not exactly.

At this link they say it was in Malaysia.

The counting of views of photos by the Shipspotting web server is something that is done by software. If the Shipspotting web server is typical of most, its software can easily determine where the link was located that led to the view about to be counted. There is more information about that feature of web servers at this Wikipedia page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_referer

in case anyone wants to read more about it.

If someone clicks on a link to a photo from within Shipspotting, the part of the server that counts views can distinguish that view from one that came from clicking on a link outside of Shipspotting.

You can probably see where I'm going with this. The counting of views could be restricted to views from the links within Shipspotting itself, if the web server software can be changed to impose that restriction.

I'm neither for nor against doing it, and I don't know how much web server expertise is available to those who maintain Shipspotting, but I thought I'd mention that it might be an option to consider.

Regards,

Bill

Here is a link to an article in German about the recovery of the Cap San Diego's original bell, with a photo of the bell.

That page also has this link to photos of a parade of ships on the Elbe in September, including the Cap San Diego.

5  Shipspotters all over the world / Help and Advice / Need advice for setting the IMO in another user's photo on: January 19, 2013, 05:47:26 am
Today I added a comment to photo 172646 of the Universe, saying that two other photos of the same ship (as Atlantic), namely 101387 and 32876, which have no IMO, ought to have the same IMO as this photo. I could not edit the photos myself - it says I don't have the appropriate privileges. What is the proper way, or best way, to request that another user's photo be given an IMO if the IMO is known? Would it be more effective if I added the comment to the photo's in question? Would that be more likely to bring it to the attention of the user who added the photo? Or is the way I did it a good way, considering that 172646 is one of the most viewed photos of they day? Or is there a more direct way to ask an administrator to make the change? If the IMO is added to the photos, I presume they would then show up in "More of this ship" when viewing photo 172646.

According to an article (in German) at the "Kieler Nachrichten" website, the ships involved in the collision were the German tanker Jana and the containership Herm Kiepe.
