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

Hello Blake -

Just wanted to thank you for your dedication to the site. It takes a fair bit of work to keep something like this rolling, and to straighten out the odd snag like last week's, and you probably don't get the credit you deserve!

I for one appreciate it.

Merry Christmas!

Well thanks Jack! Appreciate that. Yes, it is sometimes a lot of work, especially when something goes wrong, but I enjoy providing a medium to help folks out. I also do it in dedication to my grandfather. I just wish I remembered half of what he taught me! Wink

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Blake

I'll second that!  For those of us, who are new to Cletracs, this site is indispensible.  Keep up the good work.  The historical, and educational value of this site, cannot be overstated.  Thanks!  Derek.  Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!!

 Here Here , Good on you blake .
Sadest part is the photos from  the earlier posts won't be able to be matched up again . WE current members can go back and repost , but members that have moved on leaving their little piece of forum history  wil be lost . Sad  Sad.
Maybe Blake can put them into an Extra  Album  on the forum  and some of the old hands with good memorys may be able to place them  back to the old  posts . I Don't know if it is possible  and have no idea if it is unrealistic  , Just a thought and suggestion . Ian .

I was able to save most of them, but the file names are different. I'll try to put them all into a folder and let you guys go through them. You can copy and paste them to your computer and then go back and modify (new word for edit) you old posts and put them back in. But please tell me after you do it so I can remove them from the folder so the are not taking up space on the server.

I edited and put all the "lost" files up at http://cletrac.org/lostpics/ - if you had posted pictures in your previous post that were "lost" when we moved to this new forum, please visit and spend some time at this page to see if your pictures are there. If they are, you can download them to your computer and then go in to your past post and click on "modify" and put the picture back in. Once you download your pictures, PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT FILES YOU DOWNLOADED SO I CAN DELETE THEM FROM THE SERVER.

Thanks,
Blake
