They recap the best posts from the past year on a specific subject...Let's start with the 10 most spectacular shipwrecks.

    I'm a new discoverer of the AO and I must say Bravo. Nice site. Great pictures. Top 10 lists? Even better. Kudos.

    A recap of old posts? I don't think AO needs that. I'm a great fan of the site and have seen each individual post at least twice, but to 'rigurgitate' old ones is really not necessary. Only real content is king!

    Keep up the good work!

    These are some inpsiring pictures. I am reminded of those good ol' post-apocalyptic movies like Mad Max and A Boy and His Dog, especially when seeing 'The Eduard Bohlen' images. ...aah, sweet nostalgia :D

    These are some really cool photos. The places are just as awesome as the wrecks. I'm guessing the Namibia coast line must be pretty variable. Great post!

    Awesome article. There really is something magical about these locations isn't there?

    To answer : "A recap of old posts? I don't think AO needs that"

    Well I understand your position, the purpose of that type of post is to help new readers get into visiting the archives.

    wow this site died fast after it's 1 year anniversary. quite unfortunate seeing as there's truly no other sites like it in terms of content. One can only hope this gets read and inspires you to bring new and fresh content to the site if you can find it. it's though provoking and inspiring all at once. here's to another year of great posts (i hope!)

    Excellent collection of ship haikyo photographs. Well done. I have explored a good few haikyo in Japan, but these ship haikyo are really striking. Any shots of the interiors?
