Yes Simon, I second your positive comments. I always comment in a positive way especially if the photo posted is by a new member.If the photo has some flaws , I try to make suggestions to help the member to rectify the photo and not destroy his effort. Not everybody has the means  to equip himself with sophisticated cameras, drones etc. So let us be positive and offer our help and suggestions.
Thanks for the space.

I would not be amiss if I say that Ken was to many shipspotters from all over the world someone we all looked up to, a father figure in our brethren of ship enthusiasts, a mentor to new recruits, a fountain of knowledge in which from time to time we had the honour to drink from, a shoulder for many in dire times during these last years of our site.
I have never met this gentleman, though I exchanged many an email. So how about any one who has a photograph of him to publish it as a remembrance of a fine gentleman.
His passing away on the 4th. of July will always be very special for me as he passed away on my 73rd birthday.
Rest in Peace dear Ken , we will miss you very much.
Condolences to his family .

Hoping that the next news about our dear friend Ken will be a positive one.Though I have never met Ken, we exchanged various emails ,he was always enquiring about my health and when my son had an accident ,he was always enquiring about his progress. Ken is a true gentleman of the old kind, always there to help, give good advice and for these I and lots of others thank him.
Fight on dear friend.
best regards to a recovery

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.
regards

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.
regards

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.
regards

David,
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.
regards

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.
