After you have logged in to the community, you find your profile under the link "My Profile" top right corner of the forums.

The whole profile has been re-designed to be more user-friendly and better organized. It should be easier now for you to navigate through it thanks to the new tabbed layout.


The top of the screen contains links to send an email or a message to the member. You will also find a link here to send a request to the member to become friends. To send a request, click the link "Add to my friends list" A new window should pop-up. Here you can specify a message for the member that will be sent to him/her via e-mail with your request to become system-tied friends. When you send the request, the member is automatically added to the list of your friends with a status of "waiting for approval" (this status can be seen in your user menu). You actually become system-tied friends after the members approves your friendship. After he does the status is changed to "approved" and now you can see his activities on the community.


Under the links you find some basic information about the member, along with links to his/her homepage and member gallery and his/her photo. The information which you have in the tabs below give you the opportunity to know better the member as photographer and his/her activity inside the Nikonians community.


Here is a short description of each individual tab:


This tab offers you first information about the member as a photographer: experience level, mainly shoot, main metering mode, wish list, etc.


In this tab you will find out which equipment the member owns and use. Maybe you have the same camera or lens or more and thus you may consider this member as a possible ‘friend’ to share experiences with you in the forums.


Recent photographs – here is a list of the most recently added member's photographs and the latest comments on that photo if they exist. Popular photographs – member's photographs (and latest comments to it) that are viewed most frequently, with number of views mentioned.

Gallery comments

Here is a list of most recent comments that the member left to other members.


This tab consists of member's latest forum posts, blog entries and blog comments.


This last tab contains the information about the friends that you the member has in your friends list. However, the list is only shown to those members who are already friends. So if you are not a friend with the members whose profile you’re viewing you will only see the number of friends that member has and if you have any friends in common, you would see them listed.
