    Re: Fashionably Late Arrival...RFC Official

    I honestly think they are more interested in getting a jump on next years figures. We have broken 60k and that was the aim. People who sign up now are not added to this years tally, but rather are signing up for next year and get the rest of this year free...So not sure if they are added into this years tally or not.

    I think they would be at the end of the day they are members in 2013.

    Lite'n'Easy have been the coaches sponsor for quite a few years, makes sense they get a pre-roll.

    The couple of thousand who signed up for next year went on to next years tally only.

    Approximately how many unsigned previous members from the last 10 years would you say there are?

    Didn't mean the Lite 'n Easy segment which is a usual part of Dimma's Dissection. However just went back to the video and the ad isn't there now. It was one of those paid type ads one has to watch before getting to the real content. Never mind. Was great to see it at the time. Hope it occurs more often.

    Re: Fashionably Late Arrival...RFC Official

    If you watch the videos from the main AFL site rather than the RFC site there are extra adds at the front. Could thisbe what happened in your case Claw?

    Re: Fashionably Late Arrival...RFC Official

    No RROFO it was Dimma's Dissection on the RFC site. But was as you say, like what you get on the AFL site. Caught my attention at the time because I thought Yeah! Things looking up if our site can start drawing that sort of advertising dollar. I don't mind it because in the time I have to sit through it I keep thinking dollars for the club. Happy for that.

    As to why it's not there now...well it makes me wonder if I'm losing my mind. :eek: RFC-Official it seems doesn't think it happened. Maybe I should start lining my windows with aluminium foil. :confused:

    [MENTION=6608]RFC_Official[/MENTION] thanks for the prompt reply.

    Thought we might have snuck in a few more than that, the last figure I saw was 60,086 on June 28.

    Maybe that offer of free 2013 games if 2014 membership was taken out made a bit of difference.

    We can now put this topic to bed and start the 2014 membership tally. 75,000 here we come!

    Sometimes the AFL advertising team accidentally puts pre-rolls, like that one, before club videos but then fix the error pretty quickly. Wouldn't be surprised if this was the case as it happens every now and again.

    [MENTION=6608]RFC_Official[/MENTION] was reading about Essendope's membership in today's Age & the spike in numbers was said to be due to junior & digital memberships. What is a digital membership?

    Digital memberships are those that don't include any games. People overseas, interstate, or those know that won't be attending any games could take this up as it still supports the club without any extra cost of attending games.

    Is that a path we would consider going down - might attract a few more followers.
