What is done with the money from gifts and donations?

So far we've run two fundraising campaigns, 2014 and 2015 and in September 26th, 2016 we've started our third campaign, where we are asking members and readers to support the 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 and 2015 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 further 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.

Further, we've worked on improving our content, expanding it.

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.
