It is now easy for Nikonians members to ask for critique on their work. When you have uploaded an image in your galleries, just use the link in the bottom right corner, "Please give me critique on this image" to kick it off. Other members and the team will now have the chance to give you the constructive critique and advice you might need to further advance your skills.

Thanks to all our supporters, members on Silver, Gold and Platinum memberships and members participating in our fundraising, we are able to continuously improve the usability of the community's site.
Two of the latest, albeit small, adjustments we have done to Nikonians.org are:
- Now the "post message" window has a cancel button, discarding the message and taking you back to the former window when used.
- When you are using auto-renewal of your membership, look under "Membership" tab in "My Profile" to see when the next payment is due, independent of the duration of the membership.

We have had "a bug in the system" resulting in some members and visitors seeing blank pages or "error 500" pages when trying to access certain areas of Nikonians.
This bug was fixed 01-SEP-2017 ca 16:40h UTC+0 (12:40 PM EDT)
It was (obviously inadvertently) introduced 16-AUG-2017 by us.
The buggy result occurred when the visitor/member:
- Was not logged in and
- Was accessing us from an IP address that we could not look up and
- Was accessing the login page, the password retrieval page, the deeper forum pages or galleries. It did not happen on e.g. the homepage, wiki, blog, newsletter subscription or search (NikoScope).
