Good points! We will certainly incorporate a Licensing and/or education category as well as something for the Coast Guard. Offshore is also clearly needed.
We separated out photos and video after seeing many searches for video posts… maybe they can be combined into one and we will continue to encourage people to include relevant videos into posts but I like the fact there is one place to go to watch videos that may or may not fit into the other categories.
The gCaptain category is for posts like these plus bug reports, site notices, contests, etc. Good points on the Navy category, I’m not sure why it’s there in the first place.
I continue to be hopefull that engineers as well as foreign mates will eventualy join the forum. One problem is the already have ones (Engineering Link - UK mariner Link)
