Supporter - Membership of NikonGear
« on: June 04, 2016, 20:29:14 »
It is more than possible that I've missed something, but couple years ago I got a rank of life membership here. Looks like I lost it now. So would you be so kind to explain?  Thx in advance!  LZ

Dear LZ,

You couldn't have acquired life membership here for two reasons:

1. We don't offer life membership;
2. We exist less than a year, so what ever you did a couple of years ago, must have been elsewhere.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Dear LZ.
With recurring costs I feel "lifetime membership" is no sustainable idea.
But you can become "Supporter" for 20 Euros a year
All the best, nice to have you on board

I just found out I had the same issue in fotozones. Haven´t been there for a while -no time to split, I can´t even keep up here- Password recovery did the trick. Hope it helps.

To elaborate on Jakov's answer:

Nikongear (NG) is a web site entirely independent of any previous web site with a similar name. Our history goes back to June, 2015 and no further. Any membership, whether be it as life member or annual subscription, established for the old nikongear.com or fotozones.com thus does not apply to NG. On NG, we start from scratch with a blank page.

NG will not provide 'life membership' for a number of reasons, the most important of which is this practice can only ever hope to function in a setting of unlimited growth. However, as we all know, the notion of unlimited growth is not sustainable either on a theoretical or on a practical level.

Instead, we offer annual subscriptions moderately priced at 20 Euro. Besides being awarded the 'NG Supporter' icon, subscribers will have access to all features and facilities of the site. We aim at diversifying the features of NG in the near future.

There is no need to pay anything extra, we have plenty of cash in the bank to run this site.

However we appreciate your wish to contribute and the way to do that is to become a Supporter

Flickr became completely inoperable today, around the Globe, due to severe bug attack. Is there any other way to post, directly from my own library, without Flickr and its problem?  Thanks in advance! LZ

Just attach your local files when you post. There is a field for that purpose underneath the message text box.

Do note file size of images is restricted to less than 2.5 MB each, a total less than 10 MB  for all attached images to a  single post.
