This site is largely member supported
Access to the Simple trACtors website is free. You
can browse over a thousand pages, use the many technical resources, enjoy the Gallery photos and stories, or the clubhouse with its discussion forum and the classified ads. But if you enjoy this site and all that it offers, please consider showing your support by becoming a voluntary subscriber. Your donations will help Simple trACtors continue to be a growing source of information, community and support for Simplicity and Allis-Chalmers garden
In the past our cash expenses have been met entirely by selling advertisements. That is changing rapidly. Due to the rapid growth in the site and our readership, and the server space and bandwidth necessary to support this growth, the operating expenses of the site have more than doubled in the past year. Meanwhile, ad revenues have not kept pace. Ad renewals
are at the same "flat" advertising rate -- ad revenues and the "going rates" are down dramatically across the Internet, in some cases to 1/4 previous levels, and many "dot-coms" have fallen victim. While Simple trACtors is not in danger of disappearing, it is limited by these unforeseen changes in net operating costs.
Ways that you can help
We recommend a voluntary contribution of $5.00 for a year's subscription. This is about the price of one copy of a quality magazine at the newsstand or magazine rack. It's totally up to you. But, if you can donate more, we can certainly use your support and appreciate your generosity.
Simple trACtors has purchased some of the content on the site, but members of the Simplicity and AC Garden Tractor Club and other
visitors have provided provided most of the information contained on the site. We are always on the lookout for original or photocopies of sales, marketing, parts, service or other relevant technical materials that are NOT COPYRIGHTED to add to the site. We diligently try to give credit to those members who have contributed the materials.
You can also donate your time, knowledge and experience, by helping others on the discussion boards, writing technical articles such as "Do-It-Yourself" stories, or contributing other content.
Donate what you can, when you can, and what you feel is appropriate -- if you can't afford to become a subscriber - we still appreciate you and hope you'll continue to visit Simple trACtors again and again. Just visiting makes our advertising space more valuable...
