Another issue for me today is sending messages. When I move a picture between categories I always inform the uploader. The page keeps on loading but the message did go through. Iím sorry to the members who have now received a couple of duplicate messages from me before I noticed they were sentÖ

Looks like adverts are back since the AIS has been added, even logging off and back on hasn't resolved rhe issue.

It seems the "Ads free experience" was very brief.  Is it a feature the site will be restoring to those registered users who qualify...?

When logged on, I get no ads or the banner at the bottom and I still have AdBlock on, I have more than 50 photos uploaded this year.

Got rid of the social media pop up as well just by "liking" the site, never looked at it though.

Just an observation.....whether you scroll or click of the mouse, the site is saturated with ads.........

I occasionally look at the Airnav 'plane plotter site (owner of this site) for aircraft flying over my home, which happens to be near the River Thames. In the past few days, some ships have begun appearing on it as well as aircraft.

Hello Everyone,

The advertisements on the site are going through an overhaul this week, including switching to another ad network.
As a consequence some unforeseen behavior was introduced into the website, including disrupting the "ad free experience".
Please bare with us as we are working in conjunction with our new partners to resolve these issues.

Cheers
Hugo Vieira

I do NOT find it convenient when on photo page under the photo the (Full Screen, Edit Info, Add/Remove to/from Favourites) is hidden in "More" button.

Not only more things to click but also how am I supposed to quickly see that this photo is already in my Favourites?

Please, revert it back to how it was.




I was posting this several times back then, I'm posting this again:
Make https://www.shipspotting.com/photo/favorites be able to also see as a GALLERY by adding the "Detailed Listing" option how it's in https://www.shipspotting.com/photo/uploaded

Hi Denis,  yes it is one click more, but it is not that bad. I first could not find EDIT INFO, but now that I know were it is, I have no problems with its location.
As far as favorites is concerned, I checked mine and found two shots that had ended up there long time and I have no idea how they came there. My "favorites" directory sits on my harddisk, if I see a shot that I like for whatever reason, I download it. (so in case I get banned I still have access to the shot).

Strange: under FULL SCREEN I can not save the photos any longer as JPG, only as full-web-page.
Is it only me or have other members noticed this as well?

Today I had a very bad experience when opening the site, I logged in and a series of commercial advertisements appeared without counting the banner inviting to see the site on face book, tweeter and so on, I would suggest you see the option to eliminate this annoying wave of commercials that hinder the normal view of the photos.

Regards

Tomi.

I noticed that same thing. If we can't share photos in full resolution then this all become pointless.

Today.....went to download a photo and can only get a web site photo....where has the download to my photo file that has worked well up to now, gone!!
This site is getting worse to use, I don't know how some members can be so supportive of all this bs, this has gone on for many many months, so when can we expect a fully operational service?
As I mentioned on another thread I would be happy to pay a monthly/annual fee for unrestricted ad free and stable access.

I've been very patient with the changes, learning as I go. The latest change, making the pictures unavailable for download is very frustrating. Unless this changes, I'm done with this site. I understand the right of the photographer, copyright protection and all that, but if we only save the pics for our own collection, and the photographer doesn't mind, where's the harm?
