Given the fact that we repeatedly get spam accounts on the forum that resurrect old threads, would it be possible to introduce more measures to weed out non-human registrants?

As of next week a new piece of external software is going to be installed that will hopefully effectively eliminate the possibilities to post.

If the photo counter only "counts" when you click the thumbnail to go full size, just change the setting so it "counts" someone clicking the thumbnail to start with. :)

I don't click thumbnails.....they are good enough now to view without clicking.

I know that - my point is the thumbnail being looked over should be "counted" instead because as others have said you no longer need to "open" a photo anymore. :)

How exactly do you do that????

I must say I prefer the way the thumbnails are now, no need to open for a quick look, I only open the one's I'm really interested in, which, is probably a better measure of "likes".

Agree with Simon. If I like the photo but don't open it I give a "like" as a acknowledgement to the photographer.

Forgive me if I've missed a notification, I've just spotted that ShipSpotting now allow Ships Monthly to publish photos off here unless you opt out. As I used to get paid for photos in SM and I can't see how (without buying SM) we would know our photos are being used and expect the payment, therefore I have declined this option.

Tony here,

Id like to thank the people involved with returning of the shipbuilders info etc, they used to have it here but the owner had to let it go back almost 10 years back and back then you could look at all vessels built by the builder of a particular vessel and every vessel that has a pic would be displayed, i have only just come back on here and found out this info is back again.

this site is now very very good again, always liked looking at ships built by particular vessels, i got depressed when the info back years ago went. i think the supplier of the info was grosstonnage.com


a big thumbs up again 👍

Tony.
