    Hello Hasse

    This has now been implemented.

    We will continue fine-tuning the photo section.

    Thanks

    +++ excellent work +++, would it also be possilble to have a box where you could choose the sort order, rasing/falling (ascending/descending)

    Thanks for a start on this, however for the most part this feature is NOT working (for me at least).

    1. On a Photos of [Ship] page, selecting "Order by" does not change the order at all.  In fact, Google Chrome presents the pictures in a different default sequence than in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

    Any page works but use this as an example:

    http://www.marinetraffic.com/en/photos/of/ships/photo_keywords:9541318/ship_name:VOGE%20ENTERPRISE

    See example MT-1-0040.jpg -- these are not sequence by Date Taken or any other sequence that I can see.

    1.  When viewing Photos by [Photographer], the "Order by" works only on the first page of photos.  After selecting "Show more photos", the additional photos are displayed mostly unsorted.  In fact as you display more photos (multiple pages), the same photos from the first page will display ... again without any meaningful sort sequence.

    See example MT-2-0042.jpg -- these are to be sorted by Date Taken ... the first page is correct but subsequent pages are out of sequence.

    --

    I agree with Hasse above.  Would like to also see ascending/descending; as well as Place of photo, and Type of Vessel (as on the old website).  Would like to be able to select a specific value for any of the above.

    Thanks.

    Hi folks !
    As a photographer who every now and then uploads photos to MT, I find this new way of voting worse than earlier. Now You have to be a registered member if You want to give stars for photos. This voting is a good way to get some feedback about photos. I have been getting stars from 1 to 5, but now the stars are not twinking so often, maybe because of needi to sign in ( or maybe the photos are worst nowadays !
    And about stars: what is the need for 1 star. If a photo is bad, does it need stars at all . I have noticed that there are people who like to give one star for a photo, no matter if it is of best quality. As I said earlier, stars are good feedback, but only if given for real quality......and not for own photos.
    I have been wondering why there are lot'sof bad photos in gallerie. I found a lot of photos that are strigtly against the rules for uploading photos such as
    outfocused, under/over exposed, small ships far in the horizont which is not so horizontal....and five almost similar shots ?
    Earlier it took a while after the upload and publishing, now it is almost immediatly published. Maybe earlier there was some moderator inspecting every photo before publishing......and the photos were better. But now, a man from street can have his photos to be seen in famous MT.
    There is somebody watching for thousands of daily uploads, because many of my photos have dissapeared. And I don't know why !
    But alas,,this new MT is getting better, I hope, so let's wait and see !

    Yours Tero Söderholm from Finland

    I reported this most recent sorting error in Ticket #12511 on November 15, 2014 -- no response from support as yet.
