    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.

      "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 looking into adding another payment processor. I'm sorry Paypal is a pain.

      I haven't had a chance to test it on this site, but on another site I run that uses the same system, your upgrades on the site will remain active until the anniversary date.

      I will test it John.

      I don't think it cancelled my contributor status. I will assume I will get an email next year asking me to renew my subscription.
