Marine-Pilots.com: Login, comment function and new logo online
by Frank Diegel, CEO Marine-Pilots.com - published on 17 February 2020
Since our launch in October 2019, we have had a great development: more than 150,000 page impressions from more than 38,000 visitors. This is not what we had hoped for ourselves. What a result! Thanks for the trust and the many compliments we received from the community. I think it's fantastic how much content from individual pilots is sent to us for publication. The sharing of knowledge, information and contacts between the pilots is exactly what we want to encourage. Marine-Pilots.com sends the content out into the world and archives it for later research. Nothing gets lost like in the stream of LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter & Co. With us, everything remains retrievable even later.
The comment function is available now
At the end of each article or video you can leave a comment (opinion) as a registered user:
You find the register function below in the menu bar:
Create an account
It is very easy and it only takes a minute to register!
These days, we are fulfilling our important promise that our visitors should also be able to comment on articles and videos and express their opinion. From now on this is possible. The condition for reading and writing comments is that you register on the website. For registration we only allow real first and last names and explicitly no nicknames like "Batman73" or similar. We think it is very important that with every comment it is clear who is speaking his or her mind. We reserve the right (see also the "Terms-Of-Use") to delete comments that do not comply with the rules of an objective and fair discussion, for example if people are insulted. But I am sure that we as moderators do not have to intervene much in discussions, because Marine Pilots will interact respectfully with each other as visitors of our portal.
A discussion with the exchange of opinions is important
Up to now there have not been many opportunities for Marine Pilots to exchange information. Among colleagues it is always difficult, because they are all spread out in the field and you don't meet them enough in the headquarters. Personal meetings at events of national or international associations take place only a few times a year and involve time-consuming travel. Public discussions on social media platforms run out of sight again after a short time and then dry up over time and fall into oblivion. With Marine-Pilots.com this is now to be changed. Here the discussions are preserved and can easily be found again.
What is next on Marine-Pilots.com?
First of all, after the last big step with the login and the comment function, we will revise our roadmap and plan the next months with the experiences and the feedback of the community. In any case, there´s a new logo for Marine-Pilots.com. It’s online now! Maybe some of you have already seen the teasers on LinkedIn some time ago. Thank you for your important feedback we have incorporated.
Please use the comment function and write us your opinion. You can also use the feedback form. Do you have interesting content or would you like to read more information about a specific topic? Write us!
Stay always safe and have a good day
