NikonRumors turns 2 today

Exactly 2 years ago I posted several small messages online on upcoming Nikon products. This is how NikonRumors started.

Today, on the second anniversary, we have 1,212  posts, 56,170 comments and... 24,296 spam messages.

Over the past two years we had few million visitors form 225 countries/territories. I did receive several thousand emails from readers with information on Nikon products. It has been a lot of fun.

I want to thank all of you for being [NR] readers. Special thanks also to the forum moderators  - the [NR] forum now has over 2,400 members with 32,702 posts in 1,670 topics.

We have again some quiet time ahead of us and I will be posting some "non-rumors" topics in the next few weeks. I will also make some small changes to the website design and maybe even change to white background one day 🙂

You can follow NikonRumors on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and the [NR] forum group on flickr.

    Many happy returns NR… good effort with a clean and informative site. I bet Nikon themselves check here almost as obsessively as me!

    Been waiting about a year for a new full frame SLR, and I’m still waiting… this site has kept us in the loop, but I’m still quite impressed at how well Nikon manage to keep a lid on a product which (surely by now ;)) must be well into development.

    Happy Birthday NR, you’ve become my “source” for Nikon info over the past 2 years. Keep up the good work, I’m pretty sure that you have a good group of Nikon lovers.

  • Danny

    Nikon Rumours > Canon Rumours


  • Keep up the good work!

  • now that you are two there’s something you should know, NR she’s not your mother!

    Happy Birthday ! and thankyou enormously for keeping the enthusiasm going.

  • Hendric

    Happy Birthday NR!

    Although I am a long time Canon user, I do regularly visit this highly interesting site. It’s a great time for us photographers, as we can take advantage of the fierce competition between the main manufacturers, leading to fantastic products independent of the brand.

    Keep on your great work!

  • plug

    Happy Birthday!!…and keep it black.

  • Happy birthday! Keep up the good work and the black background!

    Personally I prefer no news rather than non-rumour news if there is no rumour to post.

  • Aurifex

    Happy Birthday from me too. 🙂

  • Peter

    Do you earn enough with the site to make a living, because it must take up a whole lot of your time.

    Anyway Happy Birthday, and let there be lots more to come. 🙂

    • no, I have a “regular” job outside the rumor world 🙂

  • ronen

    keep the dark background, its more energy efficient

  • Thanks a lot for doing this! I enjoy this site very much!

  • Michael Ryan

    Happy Birthday NR.

    Its part of my daily net news, thanks for all the handwork (and heres to more..)
    And I’d laeve it as a black round. not white. Unless Nikon are intending to change their camera bodies to white? Now that is a rumor….

    All the best


  • jr

    Happy Birthday !
    I appreciate your hard work to give us mere mortals a glimpse of the future.
    Please don’t change the background to white, as to commemorate that for now the Dark Knight title is still belong to Nikon with its D3s 🙂

  • ArthurH

    Thank you admin for a very nice website, which I visit almost every day. Keep up the good work!
    And good job how you keep this free of spam, never realised you get so much of that.

  • John

    Thank you for all the time and effort that you have put into NR.

  • hate “non-rumors”

    wasting mine and your time
    “non-rumors” are boring, useless, … etc
    if there is no news, get out, take photos, get a hxxxx, do something
    don’t sit in front of the screen !!!

  • The invisible man

    This is soooooooooooooooooooooooo cool !
    Nikon rumors’s birthday and mine are on the same month !

  • Dweeb

    Yaaaaaay! Keep sticking it to the wackiest bizarre company on the face of the earth. Someone needs to level the field for us consumers.

  • Tim

    Happy Birthday & thank u for the music =)

  • hybris


    i wonder what will happen when/if we got ouer belowed d800, will nr. go totally num without wisitures?

    admin you beter keep the water boiling

  • DBX

    Many happy returns. But how on earth do you deal with all the spam? I think you could make some money off your secret by shopping your consulting services to Tribune Company, whose newspaper websites have more spam than comments these days.

    • The spam filter (Askimet) does 95% of the work – I just have to monitor and make sure “good” comments don’t get labeled as spam (and the other way around).

      • jr

        I suggest that you use captcha to ensure that at least the message is posted by human, not by internet bots. That way, Askimet will have drastically reduced number of messages to deal with in the first place, and then finally your effort to monitor and separate “good comments” from spam is also drastically reduced.

  • Peter

    Happy birthday! and thank you for all you have done.

  • Jamie

    Happy Birthday and thanks for all the hard work! This is one of the few sites I do check every single day.

  • I guess I’ll remain glued to photography, which in turn will keep me glued to Nikon, which again will keep me glued to NikonRumours for sme time to come.

    Many Many Happy Retuns of the Day!!
