My boring view is this: If you want to promote your photo, unless if it aint of a cruiseship sinking or a ship that is in the news or whatever, is to share it on sosial media. Otherwise it drowns in other photos. I have seen fantastic photos on this site with say... 30 views that should have had 3000.

So that is the way to do it. I am doing it my own way, by only posting photos here, and not sharing.
I think in a way the photo shall speak for itself. But understand, if someone would like to share their pictures in a broader way.

May I request that members refrain from spreading their personal dislike of linked/shared photos in the Photo Comments of members' galleries.  Actual or thinly-disguised attacks on other members are not acceptable - harrassment is not acceptable on Shipspotting.

Those indulging in this should read the Code of Conduct, especially "I will not use the Forum or photograph comments with the sole intention of irritating others."  Any member who is receiving such photo comments is welcome to advise us at webmaster@shipspotting.com and we will take appropriate action, including removal the inappropriate comments.

The place for discussing this is right here, not on other members' photographs.  If you have already had your say on this thread that is fine - if you haven't, then you are welcome to do so.  However, the question of how the "most viewed/popular" galleries are ranked is with our IT head, and any further announcement will also be made here.

I fully agree with you David.
I never understood this discussion anyway.
Of course I'm (unstoppable)  in tears that my two pics on this site never made it into the top three of the day.

Personally I'm not very 'digitized' but I think we all have to accept how things are going in the modern digital world.

Cheers,
Roy

I think that if you can't stop the sharing  of photos ,it would be a good idea , or even if you stop the "sharing option" to show us the sources of where they took the likes, apart from facebook...

Was any action taken about this perceived problem?

Just an update.
IT were indeed asked to tweak the system so that the linking of photos did not affect the ranking of "most viewed" photos.  I do not believe that the software changes needed were at all complicated.

Shortly thereafter, the direct problem seemed to have disappeared but, despite requests, I have not been told whether any delinking has actually been implemented, or whether the handful of members whose linking was causing concern decided not to do so any more.  I think that it might be the latter, so if members see any resurgence, please report back here.

Hi Stan
Have you noticed it happening again? I haven't so far.

Thanks for your off-forum reply, Stan.
There do indeed seem to be some very recently, though it is not the former group of members now.  I am following up again with IT.
