Contributor: 

is like if you upload a manual for others to utilize if they need to.  Your "contribution" makes the site better and more useful to others.  I suppose it could also be advise or tips on how to fix something broken on a tractor you own so others can use the info to fix their own.

 

Sponsor: 

is for businesses.  They can respond directly to posts looking for anything they sell or do classified adds on the site because they pay for the privledge.  Its always a good idea to check with the sponsors first if you need something they offer.   That helps the site stay up and running.

 

Supporter:

is a yearly membership.  For less than the cost of a magazine subscription you can help offset the expenses of running the site while saying "THANK YOU" to those that started the site and the many moderators that keep it going.

You do get a few extra perks with a supporter membership:

 

 

Some of these benefits are, but not limited to:
- No ads
- Increased storage space for pm's
- Unlimited attachment space
- Unlimited gallery albums, images
- Featured Classifieds ads
- Access to Private Site Supporter Forum

 

 

I will note that it's not easy to find where to get it, so here's a direct link:

It's really worth the $$.

Crap !! I just realized I haven't renewed. Viewing the site thur tapatalk you don't know who is or isn't a supporter. But I know I'm not, cause my renew should have been months ago. Sorry George. I'll renew ASAP. My bad.

Here is a link to a post that details some of the terminology. Kris nailed it, but this covers some additional things.

Uploading manuals is fine except for anything John Deere. They're real touchy about that.
