Members who contribute financially to Nikonians (i.e. Silver, Gold and Platinum members) have the privilege of posting their pictures directly in their posts in the forums, as well as having their own Nikonians galleries.
Until now, we have not prevented non-paying members from linking to pictures on external hosts, provided they comply with the image size limitations. However this practice has now become so widespread that the contributing members are being disadvantaged. After wide consultation, we have decided to change the rules:
Beginning 30 April 2006, only Silver, Gold and Platinum members will be able to have images hosted on external servers appear in the Nikonians forums. For non-Silver Gold & Platinum members, links to external images will appear as a link, but the images themselves will not appear.

Thanks Paul & My Nikonian Team,
I should start to work on my own gallery. But looking at another's photogragh and critiquing them has been my last twenty years worth of work. I can't seem to stop! And now we have a better way at seeing who's who! Thanks for being fair to the donators! Back to the forums.. !
