    Dierk, Good morning. Recently it has been good to see an increasing number of vessels and photographs featured every day. However, I am aware of a trend to post modern coasters and river/sea coasters more and more. This is not "Coasters Remembered" and is not in keeping with the background of this site. Today for example there were quite a few vessels featured but only one - Tasmanie- actually qualifies as a "Coaster Remembered". It is probably that the older generation of seafarers who served in and loved these magnificent old vessels is slowly dying off. The younger chaps seem to think there is something wonderful about the new coaster but to me and others like me they are ghastly box like things with no character whatever and the same goes for the ridiculous flat boxes with wheelhouses rising out of the hull on a square piece of metal.
    Regretfully if this trend continues I will no longer take pleasure in following the site.

    Good morning canalsider, am sorry that I missed your reply, only did find out now, as you replied on "your" side We can hope only that CR (or Yahoo) is not being attacked again. Guess would be the end, if everything is lost again. The site of the "mad Dane" (Rick`s words) had been attacked twice, but have been told that he terminated the site due to monetary reasons, without notifying his many contributors and members. Wishing you all the best and take care Tschüss Dierk

    Good evening canalsider, I do only know that WorldPress is a provider for hosting websites, do know that used WorldPress and got hacked later, being online afterwards for some time, but went out of business later, without notifiying anybody... If you can still do it, try running security programs like Malwarebytes and others. Our site is hosted by Yahoo, far from perfect, but running secure more or less ....thank God was very often near a nervous breakdown due to the problems some years ago Wishing you all the best and keeping fingers crossed that you can get it fixed Tschüss Dierk

    Dierk, I have just had a message from Wordpress (using my username - canalsider) and informing me that my account has been compromised. Is this part of your setup? I never heard of them.

    Good morning canalsider, I created an avatar for you. Seems that Robbie didn`t take notice or replied to your request. I did use the photo of ROLF BEHRMANN, if you prefer another one, can exchange it for you. As Robbie didn`t tell me, why putting in Avatars isn`t possible for members, seems that it is the only way of doing it now. Am sorry, but don`t know much of the vBulletin system, only how to create forums, categories and threads. Volunteered doing it in order to revive CR after the big crash.Rick and Peter did coach me, as well as Robbie, who recreated the "technical" workings of CR. Wish you and your loved ones all the best and take care Tschüss Dierk

    Good afternoon canalsider,
    am sorry but it seems that Robbie couldn`t help.
    If you like, I can try to upload an avatar for you, like I did before for Rick, Robbie or others, mostly just for fun, pulling our legs with funny pictures, but that`s another story If you send an image via email ( or I can decrease the size in order to upload it on your behalf. Please excuse the long delay. Wish you and your loved ones all the best and take care Tschüss Dierk

    Hi canalsider, am sorry but can`t explain why it`s not working, General settings in the Admin panel is set to "allow Avatar to member", created a test account in order to check what is shown in "Edit Avatar", but not showing any option to add one, like with the "Pofile Picture" option. Guess only Robbie does know how to fix it .....and no reason to worry re "ancient brain"

    Good evening canalsider,
    thank you very much for your message, can it be the size isn`t correct?
    The maximum size of a custom image (Avatar) is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB
    If you like, I can put one in for you, sending a picture by email perhaps ? My email address is:

    Wish you and your loved ones all the best and take care
    Tschüss Dierk
