i have obviously, unintentionally, made a major error here, for which I apologise. Our intention, in the Australia Project, was to get community approval for a voyage landing category, for Australian voyages, based on the research databases being indexed by arrival date. It seems from the discussion in the Categorization Google group, and the earlier proposal post, that there was no major objections to the Australian proposal.
Paul, you are quite correct, I did change the proposal, based on Steve's suggestion
"So I believe the best way forward would to reformat this proposal to apply to all Ships/Shipping categories, not just those that are for Australia and NSW."
My interpretation of "reformat this proposal" was obviously incorrect, for which again, I apologise.
What now is our way forward, can we go back to this being the finalized plan for the Australian landing category as per the original proposal on this page?
I am overwhelmingly happy for someone else to do the proposal for the global shipping, I only ever wanted to get the Australian landing category approved.
