    A very large part of the success of this site is the members. Without the members and volunteering staff Nikonites would be nothing!

    We've created a Contributing member group for those who wish to give back to the site even more, to say thanks, and help pay for its expenses. This includes server hosting, maintenance, and new features. As the site grows, so does its demands with upkeep.


    As a Contributing member you'll receive several perks over the standard membership. They include:
    • A FREE Nikonites lens cloth!
    • Live Chat
    • Contributing member icon under your username
    • No ads!
    • Access to the "NAS Lounge"
    • Customize your profile colors
    • Larger PM storage (500 vs 200)
    • Send PM's to 5 people at a time
    • Access to the site feature shop, which includes these features:
      • Username different colors/styles/glow
      • Change your user title (text under your username)
      • Turn your thread titles red or add a shadow
      • Sticky threads for 30 days
      • Increase your PM space even more
      • Upload a smiley

    • Larger Avatars
    • Signature pictures
    • Create new tags for threads
    • Can use post templates (save a template to use later)


    To become a contributing member you can choose an annual amount to donate. The amounts are $9.99, $19.99 and $29.99 USD (conversions are made for our international members).

    Click here to get started! (choose the contributing member drop down)

    The contribution will show up on your bill as "Sugarman Studios, LLC" and will renew automatically every year through Paypal until you cancel.You can cancel your annual contribution at any time through Paypal (under subscriptions), but please remember that your account will be reverted to the default member account (without the goodies above) on the anniversary date of the last donation.

      I'm in; I suppose we'll get some sort of follow-up email or PM, when you get caught up with the flood?

      Will we receive an email telling us our subscription is up for renewal at the end of one year? I would like to consider my options rather than just have my credit card automatically charged.
      Thanks,

      Thanks,
      The way it is setup in Paypal is a recurring 'subscription', but you can cancel through Paypal at any time. An email is sent before it expires, yes.

      As I stand here screaming and cursing at this PayPal crap... is there a way for my wife and I to simply make the payment without having to actually log into or create a PayPal account? I just want to give some freaking money for the two of us and get this message:

      "You cannot use an e-mail address or card number that belongs to an existing PayPal account. If you have a PayPal account, please log in. If you don't, please change the e-mail address or card number and try again."

      If we have an account then we don't remember it. I swear, I have seen it on sites where you could make a payment through PayPal but without an account and PayPal was just the processing vehicle.

      I'm in also.

      Can you match up the payments to our usernames?

      Edit== obviously you can that was fast.

      Indeed. Please take it as an accolade to Nikonites that I battled through PayPal and was willing to give up my identity to accomplish this worthy task. I immediately destroyed the online account, of course.

      If you wish to continue and attract others, you need to establish a secondary payment source -- a check, folding money, etc.

      I don't remember what my PayPal account is because apparently there is one attached nor do I know the email address that is attached to it. I believe I have seen it done where they will process the payment but you don't need an account.

      Just so there are no misunderstandings, my last was directed to Jdeg et al, not the mighty Moab Man.

      You want HOW much seriously though its easy to think forums just appear out of mid air for every ones enjoyment,well they don't they need creating and maintaining.normally the costs are not huge but that cost large or small needs covering,the top donation for me in the UK works out at the moment to £18,i log on most days and get tremendous enjoyment at 5p a day so will commit later in the day when my connection is better,its often not good at this time of the morning.
