contributor price..

soo.. what made the price go up $5.
i could barely see paying the $10, but $15 just seems like to much.

i guess when the 20th rolls around im not going to renew, just doesn't seem like its worth it.

$15? Thats not bad at all. Most sites are that much. and from what I hear it takes a decent amount to up keep a site


Its not like this site is free to keep on the net. It takes money.

I will continue to pay, if it wasn't for contributors this site would be non exsistent

15 bucks isnt much at all . to anyone. and if it is, think of the other things you **** away money on. you do it, and you know it. at least giving it to the site, you help others have a place to get info from and sit and enjoy.

i agree with you and josh, ive paid for it for 2 years or so and it was only $10 a year then, which seemed ok.

btw im almost done moving, ive been taking my time because i have a month left at the other place.

Your 5 cents a day could help keep trucks like this alive.



Please help feed a Ranger.

that is only $0.04 a day to access the site.....and you get to be registered for vender give-a-ways, a larger avatar, larger PM inbox, have pictures hosted for FREE via attachments........

$15 isn't nothing at all.....most other Ranger sites are charging $20 a year........i would bet that the $15 that you contribute doesn't go into someones pocket, i would say even if EVERYBODY contributed, then it still wouldn't cover the operating expenses of the site...

^^ I agree... I am not telling you contribute or not, but it does help to pay for the site. You have to remember too, there aren't any advertisements on here like allot of other forums. Advertisements bring money to the site, but they are annoying as hell and I for one will pay my 15 bucks to not have to see them!

um i dont know what ranger sites that you look at that are 20 bucks but. therangerstation.com is free ( i might be mistaken on this one), rangerpowersports.com is $10 a year, and generation-edge.info is free. thats not saying im not going to pay for this site, i think this is the best site out there. i just havent gotten around to sending my money in yet.

TRS is free for the everyday average user.....but when you contribute, it is $20......look in your user control panel.....then got to paid subscribitions......

RPS is cheaper because they have advertisements on the site....including pop ups...

Plus look how much faster this site is when compared to others. The sites always load faster on here, seems worth the money.

I doubt people will stop contributing unless the price goes up to 30 dollars or something, then some people probably still would. You'll always have to few people who dont see the point in paying.

^^^ Yeah, thats true, I contribute because I like the fact that we have no adds or pop ups. Aside from that, whoever runs a site has expenses, we all enjoy it so I don't have a problem paying 15 bucks a year. Hell, I am on here everyday almost...lol.

Huh...? You never leave the site.

As for contributing, this site rocks, and not having to clean out my PM box every few days because of pointless coversations with the Michigan guys is priceless.
