1  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: Historical/unidentified ships logos on: March 15, 2018, 09:45:01 pm
Hi Jose,
you have a point to ponder there,but what if a company is reactivated and like you said if a company is taken over etc whilst in the other category, ? Are we going to see tranfers to and fro?
In my view better have the historical and identified ones transferred to ships company category progressively,(they are already identified) because you have then a big problem identifying  the defunct  etc. ones in this ship companies category  and transferring them to the unidentified/historical category.
Do away with the historical and leave it as unidentified ones only.
This is my view , and less time consuming.

On the Historical/Unidentified funnel logos category there are at the moment (as of today 12-3-18) 188 photos posted. A lot of them have since been identified, so why are they not transferred to the Ships companies logos? This should be the photo owners duty to do so. These members should monitor their posted photos regularly and amend accordingly.
This category must be cleaned up, I think that the responsibility is on the members, not on the Administration.
Thank you

Thanks davidships,
that's relief ,I thought that some of these remarkable photos will be deleted and lost forever to us members, a great and worthwhile decision. Hope Administration will adhere to this good decision if another similar occasion occurs, a strong hand on the helm is what needed on such occasions. (no pun intended)
Thank you in the name of lots of spotters on the site.
Keep them coming guys.
Thanks and regards.

This incident regarding the grounding of the JUPITER happened this month (14 Aug 2017) , so how come photos of this incident are in the Most viewed photos of Last month (Sept 2017).
Can somebody explain? Notwithstanding a series of great photos re this grounding.
I think that the maximum of 4 photos per day per person must be reviewed in such incidents. as such happenings so near to shore gives the photographer more opportunities of capturing great, sometimes memorable photos.
Thanks to everyone supplying these pictures, keep them coming.

As to Marine traffic, sometimes that happens here in Malta also, but worst of all is when I check Marine traffic in the morning and find a large  tanker or vehicle carrier berthed in an impossible corner of the harbour such as the yacht marina .
Also some vessels keep on appearing hours after they have departed the spot indicated as our friend has commented upon.
Marine traffic is not Gospel, sometimes it must be taken with a pinch of salt. Nothing is infallible.
thanks and regards

No please no such category as Mattyboy requested, if we have to add  another category I rather it will be "photos by Drone", and how about ditching the category "examples" ? I cannot comprehend its use.
And please may the contributors or Administration that after a photo is identified in the Mystery category ,it will be transferred to its relevant category. As for the "historical/Unidentified funnels" , it is the same ,transfer to "Shipping Companies Funnel..." after identification. Contributors should follow up their postings and amend accordingly, and not leave a photo in the Unidentified category.
Thanks and regards

Hi David,
I should have typed New Locations .Which is one of 3 lists : New Photographers,   New Ships  and New Locations.
Sorry to have misled you Dave.
8  Shipspotters all over the world / Site related news, functions and modules / Re: new ports on: January 04, 2017, 02:00:42 pm
in the "New Ports" list there is inserted the port of Valletta. I don't think that Valletta is a new port for the site after more than 12000 photos in which the port is indicated. How come this happened?
regards and thanks

Hi Cornelia,
by not continuing to post those wonderful photos of yours you are surrendering to these hijackers who are destroying the integrity of true shipspotters.You are one of the few female representatives on this site and it is a shame to lose a worthwhile member.
At the same time I implore the Administration to warn these pseudo shipspotters to refrain using shared photos, everyone knows who these persons are. So please Administration pay heed to genuine shipspotters who are sorry that the site is sinking to this attack, and take appropriate action to terminate this unfortunate situation.
Come on Cornelia, show them that you are made of better stuff than these hijackers, and keep on posting.
Looking forward to viewing your future photos.

Thank you davidships, at least good or bad , a decision has been taken. Better late than never. Hope we don't get a deluge of less interesting multiple shots of these lifeboats and tenders.
Thanks and regards.

I have been taking photos since I was about 10 years when I used to use my dad folding Ilford  for snapping family members and our pets and even of places which over the times have changed considerably. At about 14 I  bought a small camera  ,gradually changing cameras and formats as years gone by.
At the age of 11 years I used to accompany my grandfather ,an ex-seaman who in his 60s used to be employed as a watchman on laid up vessels ,and it was my joy to spend a night sleeping aboard ,then waking up to a breakfast of eggs and chips and bacon, then spend the day (usually a Saturday or Sunday )touring the ship ,fishing over the side and hearing sea stories from my grandfather adventures during the war and from faraway exotic places.
Those days kindled my love for ships, apart  also being the son  of an Royal Navy serviceman.
Now at 71 , I look back with nostalgia to those weekends with my grandfather Paul.
These days I spend the mornings at Senglea Point with my shiploving friends talking ships and drinking coffee or cool drinks.
Nowadays I own 2 Nikons, but my favourite is the compact Coolpix which is always strapped to my belt or in the glove locker of my trusty Toyota.
I seem to be the only resident who is putting photos on the site apart from visiting spotters.I hope that some one takes up my mantle and start and  taking photos of ships in Maltese ports.
I try to photo every ship  visiting Valletta harbour for posterity and putting them on the site. Ever one can make use of them for their collections ,books ,magazines etc. I don't ask for payment, but it would be to my satisfaction if any profit is made of their use that a small donation to some charity especially for some sea orphans or old needy seamen etc. be given.
I like to comment on interesting photos on the positive side and appreciate comments on mine which  I will answer back .
I have made many friends from across the world through this site  which I joined in 2011.
I thank all these friends for the enjoyment and satisfaction that I have derived from these connections. I especially thank Ken for his encouragement throughout these 5 years.
As long as my health permits me , I would continue clicking away to my heart delight and hoping of others viewing my photos, hope  I never offended any one with some comment or remark , and if so it was never my intention ,and offer  due apologies.
Thanks and regards to every one.
Fair weather and calm seas to every one connected with the sea.

Hi Colwyn,
the best hotels overlooking the harbour, that is Grand Harbour, the principal harbour in Malta also known in as Valletta harbour are the British Hotel and the Grand Harbour Hotel which overlook the harbour. There are also some boutique hotels in Valletta.
As to shipspotting sites , the whole of the bastions overlooking both harbours at Valletta are good sites, then there are our favourite sites for morning shooting, with the sun at your back at Senglea point and the surrounding bastions looking over the dockyard and the yacht marinas and Corradino Heights overlooking the smaller yard of Bezzina the inner part of Valletta Harbour. On the South side you can visit Marsaxlokk and Birzebbugia in Marsaxlokk Bay for the container ships at the Freeport.
If you travel to Gozo you can photo the ferries and other harbour cruise vessels plus large and small m/yachts.
Happy hunting Colwyn ,look us up at Senglea Point most mornings.
Best regards

I have seen various odd names .especially on yachts, but the best one for me was a small motor cruiser named AFTER YOU, when I enquired about the originality of the name with the owner, I thought he will tell me that because his boat was just a small one  he gives way to larger ones, but the answer was quiet different and unique.
When he meets some girl,to impress he just tells her that ne named the boat "After you"....what do you think, smart and
He wouldn't have to rename the boat when he embark on a new love venture.
