I've "blown" my "Thanks" already this morning. This is the most entertaining part of my 59.3 year "career" in steam engine operation. I too, have to say, there's little I do regarding steam that is as entertaining. I subscribed to IMA and Steam Engines (defunct long ago) in 1954, Engineers & Engines, Steam Traction, and now Iron Age. This is the most interactive part of it. While the engines are drained, the handholes out, dried out and frost trying to form on them, this is still "active steam." I love it. Our magazine editors may see this as a distraction from sending them articles? Thanks for the venue, Harry!

My problem is I forget when I last paid my subscription dues. I probably could check my paypal history or should put a reminder in my calendar for paying dues the 1st of every year.

I'm still listed as a Subscriber, but I'm sure I'm past due. So I just donated $20 for this past year. Best $20 I'll spend all year!!!

Everyone should consider how much they RECEIVE from Smokstak and Enginads and GIVE a little back.

As soon as Harry gets you upgraded, an "EDIT" button will appear for you to make corrections or add more thoughts.

Peter,

The poll/thread isn't intended to offend, only provide some facts and a perhaps a reminder since Harry doesn't send an invoice. Given the large number who view this site, I was shocked so few had subscribed. Subscription is voluntary.

The Moderators pay their $20 just like the rest. Sincere appreciation to all who have renewed or upgraded.

Beth
Beth, I noticed someone capitalized my user name. Is that part of a paid subscription, too? :-)

I haven't "Voted" yet, because I HOPE to be able to change my status again in the near future from "I Need to Pay my Subscription" back to "I am a Paid Subscriber".

Being in one of the extra catagories Peter mentioned with financial issues I have fallen behind a couple months but hope to be able to renew again ASAP when I have some extra funds available again.

I may try doing what Bill K "oldproff" said and maybe send $25.00 or $30.00 once I am able to do something again. Right now though, most every dime I get ends up going in the gas tank as I look for more ways to cut corners like dropping my home Internet back to 'free with pop up ads' and looking in to getting one of the 'free' cell phones and dropping the landline altogether since I need to use the library computers for most of what I do on line anymore anyway.

As has been mentioned already, this is not just 'one of', but THE Best site on the Internet with all of the information, pictures, resources, and for the most part PEOPLE to share that information & pictures with.

I've been on here since November 2008 and when I quickly reached the photo limit a within 2 1/2 - 3 years and asked about deleting some old ones to make room for more I got bumped up to subscriber status as one of the "gratis" subscribers that Harry mentioned. A short time after that I scraped together the money and paid for my sub through PayPal. I greatly appreciate Harry's helping me along with that by bumping me up to start with, and for putting up with some of my "shenanigans" in the process. I'm glad to see that Harry extended that 'gratis' assistance to 5 others as well, and I hope that like me, they too upgrade on their own ASAP.

It is money well spent..... if you can spare it, and even when it's hard to spare it.

This site that Harry has developed is the greatest single asset for the exchange of information on the preservation of mechanical history that exists! All areas from models to the largest pieces of vintage iron are covered and this site has contributors form all over the globe. We as restorers and historians, along with future generations, owe Harry our gratitude and if we can, our $upport.

I sent my $20.00 back in September. I used snail mail too. It was $20.00 well spent. Thank you Harry for this wonderful website!

OK I must be dense. Took me almost six minutes to figure out how to subscribe. Now when do I get the secret handshake?
