Nikonians Reach 150,000 Members
It feels like it wasn't long ago Ramón and I started Nikonians. Today we reached the 150,000 active members milestone.
Out of our 150,000 members, a majority are on the basic, free membership, but 8,937 or ca 6% are supporting the community through a Silver, Gold or Platinum membership. These memberships help to pay a part of the servers (we have a server cluster, plus several separate servers) and some of the maintenance and software development needed.
We are though dependent on other revenue streams as well. The customers in the community's own Photo Pro Shop and our sponsors and advertisers help out further to ensure we can exist and grow. Also buying a workshop in our Nikonians Academy help out.
If you are still not on a Silver, Gold or Platinum membership, this is a good time to sign up to help the community :-)
