News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

9/22/12 - I ask that you please add a signature line to your profiles on the Cletrac Forum to help me to determine who is spam and who is not. You don't need to drop everything and do this immediately, but please do it when you get a minute and you are visiting the forum. Just go to http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile and put something in the signature area. If you no longer want to be a member on the Cletrac Forum, please remove your membership.

8/10/11 - Added a new board: Trucking and Hauling

5/30/11 - Just added several new pictures to the Photo Gallery, including several Alfta Track OC-4 working in snow logging, several from the Chicago Road Show, and some from a logging show (not all Oliver/Cletrac). All these pictures are from around 1963 and were scanned from old slides given to me by my late friend John W. Davis. Go to the Photo Gallery and click on "NEW" to see these pictures. Quality is marginal, but I think you will enjoy them.

2/13/11 - Just added a new board "New members introduce yourselves here".

Folks, I just added a new photo gallery where you can upload your own pictures with descriptions, etc. Right now this is in the beta testing stage to see how it works out. Give it a try, but please keep a backup copy of your pictures just in case we decide to use something else. I would prefer you use your real name on the photo gallery, but if you really don't want to, please use the same username as on the forum. Please put your images into the proper categories and take care when your write out your descriptions and image names so people can search for them. I am learning this as we go. At least at the beginning, I have it set up where the administrator has to approve members. I am afraid we may get porn spam in here if we leave it open. To get to the photo gallery, use this link: http://cletrac.org/photos/

Folks, when you join the forum, or when you get the chance to update your Profile, please be sure to put your location and interests. Filling out your signature would help as well. I've been getting some spammers joining and posting links to sites that are completely unrelated to Cletrac or Oliver, or anything to do with tractors. It would make it easier for me, as well as all the other members, if you guys would put your location and interest in your profile. See http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,
Administrator

Not for a while. I am swamped. I usually add them in spurts as I get time on the computer.

Oh, O.K.. I was just woundering if you had forgotten about me. I didn't want to appear as though I was bugging you. But at the same time I was curious. LOL.

I wish I had more time to devote to it. Seems I am into too many things. I'll try to get some pictures updated pretty soon.

Hey Blake, remember those pictures I gave you over a year ago? When are you finally going to make me an album?

Ok GaToy,

First of all, let me say this site is not my full-time job and I do it as a service for those interested in Cletrac tractors and company history. It costs me over $XXX a year just for the hosting - this does not include the software I need, the cost of my local ISP, my second phone line, nor any of my time. I do it because I like doing it and as a service to you and those who like this company.

As far as the pictures go, I have hundreds of pictures waiting to go up that were submitted before yours. Sometimes I have time to get to them and I put them up. Lately, things have just been too busy to be able to do it. Every picture submitted needs edited, sized, a thumbnail made, and then uploaded to the right place so folks can navigate to it in an easy manor. In addition to the pictures, a separate page needs to be made for each submitter. Maybe there are better ways to do it, but this is how I established it years ago. High speed Internet would certainly help, but it is not offered here.

As far as your pictures, I would suggest you edit and post them online yourself and then provide a link here so folks can view them. That way you can do it immediately instead of waiting for me to get to them.

Blake

Well, I figured after a year and a half that if you haven't posted them by now you weren't going to. I just wish you had printed that in the paragraph about downloading before I wasted my precious time. I too am limited to the time I have until as of late working 10 and 12 hrs. a day seven days a week. I just did it because I wanted to share with others that are interested in these great machines. As for your fees, thats part of owning a website. If you ever accepted donations from people other than buisnesses i'd contribute because I will help out where I can. On my Toyota MR2 site that i'm a member of we pay $10 a year for the ability to send messages and other quirks. This site doesn't have anywhere near that many mmbers but if you put some effort into it you could let the site pay for itself.
