Well the ads only work if someone clicks on them... No Dale, visiting a website doesnt sign you up for spam (unless you give them your email address) And yes Footyman, I'm working on changing the tired rotation of ads over to something else.. unfortunately I don't directly get to choose what is displayed.

The google advertising is cleared by them, so I find it unlikely that you would be led to an inapproriate website.

Out of interest, the website made a very good profit for April, helping to cover the costs of all the quieter summer months.

The webhosting costs are about $15 a month. April brought in a whopping $66! If that keeps up, I might put the money towards a professional designer giving vflfooty.com a makeover!

North Port, thanks for keeping the site running both technically and financially Your efforts are appreciated.

With $66 for April, the site could become the sponsor the VFL can't find

Great work North Port. Plenty of current VFL info in this site as well as remembering the good old days of VFA footy.
Keeps us VFA tragics active.

Maybe with the extra dollars you can decorate the site to include all the old VFA logos on the front page if it's possible.

My vote goes to having NorthPort buying himself dinner with the $50 with our thanks for keeping it going.

I for one would only be too happy to pay a yearly subscription.
I know Northport puts all his spare time & effort into his labour of love & is entitled to some type of recompense.
Any thoughts !!!!

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

I agree. But it would no doubt lower some activity from some.

Thanks for the kind words... As I said earlier in this thread, if I take donations, I will feel duty-bound to provide a better product than you are receiving now. The ads just make it easier. Also as Dolphin said, a membership might put people off posting here and our numbers are already pretty thin.

At the last count, there were over 850 registered forum members, but I'd be surprised if we had much more than 20 or so regular posters.

I wouldn't feel right dining out on money the website has made.. That isn't what vflfooty.com is about. :)
