does the site operate?
Shipspotting.com is an international web site with more than twenty volunteer Photo Administrators (Admins) from over ten countries across the world. They review all photos submitted, checking for compliance with site standards reached from the Support tab on the Home page.
There are more than five Correction Editors, working on revising and adding information to photos.
Site standards have criteria that can be met by members with a wide range of experience, camera gear and shipspotting locations. They provide an important element of consistent quality control for the site. In late 2015 they were subject to review with member consultation.
There are facilities for communication with fellow enthusiasts interested in shipping, photography and computers. Comments about photos can be made and responded to. Opportunities are available for communication with fellow members by email and Private Message.
For each vessel photo the site adds further information from its own sources. On the Home page there are links to Latest News
It is recommended that you review and regularly refer to this Support index. It covers methods and standards for uploading all photos, specific information for some categories, and remember service information.
