What is done with the money from gifts and donations?

So far the Nikonians Community has run three fundraising campaigns, 2014, 2015, 2016 and we have just started the fourth one, on September 4th 2017. We are asking our members and readers to support the Nikonians Community financially, in addition to any other support already provided, such as volunteering for writing, moderation and by paying for memberships.

The money we raised in 2014-2016 has been used to improve Nikonians; We have been introducing a new look and feel to the forums, we added multiple new functions, removed old stuff that was hardly being used and we ensured that the main sections of the site, including the forums, were working well on mobile devices. We further integrated the various areas some more, such as the galleries and articles within the forums. We also improved some of our apps. We have moved to faster servers, changed the infrastructure of the system including using a Content Delivery Network (CDN), serving all pages securely using TLS (SSL) and improved usability in general. 2014 and 2015 came with major overhauls and it has over all received very positive feedback from the members.

There is still a lot of work to do for sure and at a place like Nikonians, there are always a lot of ideas and limited resources for actual execution of these ideas. Our 2017 campaign focus on improving the way we are managing and sharing our photographs in the community.
