Site Contributors

I am looking for some feedback on this issue.

First off, if you were a contributor at one time and it expired why didn't you renew? Too Expensive? Not enough benefit? Forgot?

If you renew every year do you feel its worth it?

Also incase you were wondering the funds used from Site Contributors goes to hosting the site on the server.

I am looking at different servers and trying to weigh out the options. I want some member feedback.

btw if you are not a contributor you can become one by going here...

Its $15 a year.

I feel like its worth every penny. Just for the larger avatar I would pay the $15.

If you are on the site every day its $.04 a day which is nothing.

All I know is that as long as I am a member here I will always be a contributor.

To all the people that spend alot of time here and are not a contributor I would reconsider. I mean $15 is that much money. Your money will go a long way.

I have thought about it lately. Just wondering, didn't you use to get a RF sticker if you became a contributor?

You used to. There is a sticker thread, I believe they are 2 for $10 shipped.

I just think of it as another mod to my truck.

Yes stickers are a separate item. It is easier to keep separate because of addresses.

Sorry dude, did not mean to offend you if I did by talking about it. I figured he wanted to know a reason why maybe some have not signed up yet and that is probably my reason why.

i contributed when i signed up, and i think i just renewed not too long ago.

i like the giveaways around christmas time from r-f vendors. plus, they give us awesome discounts for being members. you have to give a little before you expect to receive right?

aside from the drama, i think this forum is very helpful, and would probably pay even if it wasn't optional. i mean AllData is about $16 a year i think, and i can get all that info here.

I just became one after reading some of the server problems we were having. The wealth of knowledge i have gained from here was definately worth the asking contribution. Thanks for providing me with this site, its been fun.

Come on guys, if youre not a contributor and youre on here often enough, step up and give until it hurts, your salvation is waiting!

I contribute because the wealth of knowledge on this site is worth way more than $15. As long as I have my ranger I will remain a contributor. The only time it would run out would be when my year is up and I didn't catch it.

I am a contributer here and on RPS. I am am both sites everyday (not so much RPS anymore). I am here all the time and $15 a year... come on. I have $15 in change sitting right here next to me. Even after I get my next vehicle I will stay on here and continue to pay the $15 a year even though I don't own a ranger.

For me it's not the amount of money it is... it's the way you have to pay it.

I don't have PayPal... heck, I don't even have a credit card, bank card or debit card.

All I got is cash. lol

send me a PM. I will update your status if you send me a money order. Also in that money order if you want stickers add the amount of the Contributor and I will send the stickers. That only works for Money Orders. If you do paypal the payment for stickers and site contributor is different.
