Fundraising Campaign 2016

Nikonians is a not-for-profit community celebrating its sixteenth anniversary this year. Any revenue generated through our operations is reinvested to sustain our growth. As a community, we are relying on the commitment of our members, with membership fees representing over 75% of the total revenue. The rest comes from donations and limited advertising.

Several tens of thousands of users register as members at Nikonians per year. However, only ca 5% of all members are supporting the community financially through a contributing Silver, Gold or Platinum membership.

Based upon last years successful fundraising campaigns, this year we will:

FURTHER ENHANCE YOUR NIKONIANS EXPERIENCE

As always, we are working hard to improve user experience for all of our members and users. The back-end team, specifically Zita, Dmitry, Roman, Jozef, Patrik and Peter have been doing lots of improvements to our systems in the last twelve months. Secure connection to all of our sites (TLS aka SSL), changed the way images are shown in the forums using a new resizing and caching service, new servers with better performance, improved delivery speed using a Content Delivery Network (CDN), introduced NEF upload possibility (in certain forums), better support for the "white theme" with dark text on white background, improved readability and enhanced mobile usage experience to mention just a few items.


There are though lots of items we are pursuing and some of them are only feasible with your additional support, such as improving the image galleries and organizing more events and local gatherings.


Your support will allow us to pursue our work and continue our mission to share, learn and inspire.
