Hello,
how often the database will be updated? Many ships which are still have "in Build"-Status are already in Service since many month, partly a year!

The database was provided by Gross Tonnage, so updates stopped when GT stopped. You will now even find ships that were not even in build at the time GT stopped. There is currently no possibility to manually update the data. Sad but true.

Is there any chance to step foreward? Otherwise there are so many service providers now, but Shipspotting.com is one of the biggest community. I dont like to miss it.

Apparently the site owner is looking for solutions, but so far nothing has come forward. Fingers crossed.

Hi,
I think we may have to accept paying a fee, for up to date information.Not sure how site users feel.Perhaps Marinetraffic may be a solution.If enough people pay,it may not be too expensive,it depends on how much people want the information
Best wishes
Keith
