ES should improve photo quality which can be a difficult thing but I don't use Autogespot, always found it rather difficult to navigate but after reading above some of the 'reviews' of it. Yeah not for me

Autogespot would be better if you could just post without having a plate so you have more flexibility about what shot you spots. For example, the downside to autogespot is that if you take a shot of a car driving in the opposite direction and it's a great spot, but you can't upload to AG because you couldn't get license plate, even if the shot was still good quality. There's way more members on the site, but it seems like it limits you to just posting street or parked shots unless you're lucky to get the plate of moving cars.

Not to mention the tons of car owners that don't like having their license plate photographed

Looks like I had to open up this old thread again. This is getting serious now...

From what I know, these were the things still happening on AG.

- AG still implements the 'demerit points' system until today. Any spots removed either because it breaks the rule, or even not caused by you (e.g. uploading error) and any site rules broken counts as demerit points. Today, I got 3 of my spots removed, 2 of them because of blurry photos, and 1 because of uploading error. To make matters worse, AG now implements the 'demerit points' system harsher than before, they started to gave even less mercy now, and more demerit points for every wrongdoings than before.
- Lies, hoaxes and accusations still plagued the site.
- Bans were easier to get than reputation now, and reputations were easier to get ruined than increasing.
- Aggressive, harsh, corrupt and toxic members still plagued the site. Even more admins were corrupt now. You didn't get any aid/help at all, and if a corrupt/toxic member hates you and reported your spots, you're typically done.
- Discrimination still plagued the site. If you're not a spotter from Europe, Japan, Korea, China, Middle East and North America, good luck. They would often harass/bully you out of the blue.
- Their silly uploading rules. Mandatory fully-displayed plates, at least 1 shot of both front and rear, no 'camping'.
- And how they take certain spots. Popular places that tend to have lots of cars appearing at once, still can be considered an 'event' now. How would someone do spotting successfully if there is an exotic car culture in Indonesia where exotic car owners tend to come with groups?

- Site bugs that still hasn't been fixed until today. Often that photos failed to be uploaded to the site, certain photo spots can't be accessed (it instead redirects you to the main page), etc.
- Maintenance/care level of the site is low. If you're not a Dutch-speaking person, you didn't have a chance. Submitting a feedback/report won't work.
- Premium features. What also slowly killing the site.

I would say if that I didn't have friendships with certain people there, I'm done with AG. Too many nonsense rules.

I can no longer upload my spots onto Autogespot because minimum picture width is 2560 pixels, and my camera defaults at 1920x1280. Unbelievable.

The website is quite hard to navigate and I recently tried to upload the photos of the black SF90 I spotted I tried for at least 20 mins before giving up it said there was a problem with a few of the images but I had no idea which ones.

Update:

AG now starts to reject Japanese car spots (with the GT-R R35, NSX and Lexus line of sports cars as an exception) bit by bit now. I had 3 Japanese car spots that were eligible (a Skyline GT-R R34, Skyline ER34 and Lancer Evolution IX) and they were the only ones that got taken down.

And oh, don't forget. Spots that had to be been taken down still counts as demerits for the spotter on the site now. You didn't know most JDM spots were no longer acceptable and then suddenly you got stamped with demerit points. Moreover if multiple spots of yours got taken down.

Older ones were not targeted, the newer ones were.

No wonder the site is going more and more downhill.

Update:

They had removed another of my worthy spot again (a Nissan Skyline R34 Sedan) and stamped a demerit point on that.

Now seriously, if my Clubman Race Spec R34 GT-R spot got taken down and I got a demerit point for that, I'm done with AG. This ain't right at all.

Another update.

This is getting sillier and sillier each day...

Remember the McLaren Senna spot? It got taken down because of false reports: event, taken without permission, blah blah blah. What I mean... really? That spot is not from an event either. If it's an event, the 458, Huracan STO, AMG GT Black Series and the 765LT spot will also go down.

So I would also really believe that this is also caused by mass false reports either... or jealousy. Or some other nonsense claims that certain people tried to throw to me at AG.

Good thing that the other time I re-uploaded the Senna spot it's not taken down again... otherwise, bye bye AG. Seems that the admin finally realized the false claims.

Problems in AG had reached the boiling point now. I was banned for 2 weeks starting from now due to me reaching the allowed number of demerit points, having my spots removed for no reason which adds to the demerit points.

They said if I get banned the 2nd time, it will last a month. The third and last time, it's permanent.

Update - it's a good news:

- My 2 weeks ban had been lifted 2 days earlier. Now I've been unbanned, let's hope that I didn't got banned again.
