Why bother about mastering photography?

_PJJ5004-110.jpgThis weeks newsletter is the weekend edition. That was not planned, but some network equipment at an Internet provider in Austria, where I am located right now, decided to give up and take a long, maybe well-earned rest. Next week is back to Thursdays.

We are advertising free

20170922_134558_4.lakenorman_treadwl_110px.jpgWe are going advertising free today. This means: No more advertising on the top or bottom of pages, in the articles or on our homepage.

The reason? The value of the advertising, for you as a member and for the Nikonians Community over all, is diminishing. Many of us are using ad blockers and if we do not, we hardly interact with the ads or view them.

We hope this change will further lead to a cleaner design and less clutter, making the Nikonians Community an even more enjoyable place to visit.

Small changes are also important

Added by bgs | September 19, 2017   1:18 PM | TrackBack

Post-message-screen-2017-09-19-110.pngThanks 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.

Issue with accessing us fixed 01-SEP-2017

Added by bgs | September 2, 2017   12:52 PM | TrackBack

Nikonians-Racks-FaM-364177-110.jpgWe 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:


  1. Was not logged in and

  2. Was accessing us from an IP address that we could not look up and

  3. 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).

Issue with accessing us fixed 01-SEP-2017
