Membership benefits explained

Shield-Silver_THU.jpgNikonians founders J. Ramón Palacios (jrp) and Bo Stahlbrandt (bgs) are happy to welcome the large number of new members joining us in the past few years. They have also noticed an interesting trend.

It seems many members are not aware of the specific additional benefits that come with each level of community membership. Our Silver, Gold and Platinum levels each have unique benefits, and in the coming weeks we will highlight them, one by one.

First, let's have a look at one of the most popular levels.

Shield-Silver_250.jpgSilver membership is only $25 USD per year (less than 7 cents per day).

As a Silver member, you receive the following benefits (above the basic trial membership):

▪ Upload and store images in forums

▪ Show personal gallery images in forums

▪ Access premium content area with how-to guides and more

▪ Access to Fine Art Nude Gallery

▪ Access to Fine Art Nude Forum

▪ Access our forums via RSS

Bonus for upgrading: If you upgrade to a higher level, e.g. from Silver to Gold, whatever is left of your currently paid period will be converted to the new level as well.

Membership-Shields_300.jpgHere's a tip: -- if you want to see the full memberships benefits listing, check our comparison chart.

At the top of that chart, you will see a message from our founders explaining the community support you will be making through your choice of membership:

"Nikonians is a not-for-profit community. All capital generated through our operations (the Nikonians Community, the PhotoProShop and the Nikonians Academy) are reinvested to sustain our growth. Each membership counts and we take this opportunity to thank you for your support!"
---Bo Stahlbrandt and J. Ramón Palacios, Founders of Nikonians.
