Marine Traffic revamp
« on: November 01, 2023, 05:50:37 PM »
Does anybody else think the New Marine traffic look is a step backwards? I think personally i preferred the older look with the sea light blue and the icons as they were....

Well, their latest redesign will make my autistic desire to become their top photo uploader a tiny little bit more complicated... :)

Anyway, it's always weird to see something changed after you've been familiar with it for 13+ years.

Ridiculous!! I just looked at it...Somebody had to justify his/her existence. The ship symbols are so small and faint it is hard to see. Why @#$% with something that looked well?

I got this response from them:

" Neiriz (MarineTraffic Support)

Their reply to me included this:
While the new map layout was a business decision, it is crucial for us to be aware of what dedicated users such as yourself are thinking about this change.
That makes it sound like cost-cutting was the reason to change the maps.
