Thanks to MetroAir's idea and the restructuring that has gone on with AFF we will re-introduce this thread as the 1,500th AFF member. We are currently on 1,093 members. To ensure that we are all synchronised, the member count used is from the community page (not member list) on The Australian Frequent Flyer Online Community Statistics. An example is provide below

Prizes - anyone kind enough to donate a prize.

Dates & Times are AEST. To make it interesting, all picks must be entered before the 1,400th member joins AFF.

Closest guess to actual join time will win - regardless of whether the guess is earlier or later than the joining time.

We now have over 1,250 users on AFF!

Anyone care to make a wild guess this early?

Didn't think so. I may end up winning this contest as well with the only prediction.

You should look a little closer. It is hidden in the fine print.

If no predictions received by deadline then the OP wins the contest.

There was no tiny asterisk to lead me to the fine print.

Any predictions are welcome even if a little late.

Just you and I unless someone else cares to make a prediction. Anyone else?

Seems we passed the 1,500 mark earlier today. Was 1,507 when I just looked.
Wow!!!! 60 users joined AFF since late last night. :shock:

And the winner is oz_mark. Congratulations. Give the man a prize from the top shelf....

I will ask one of the moderators to update the winner's podium.

I noticed that the memberships shot up there a bit!

So what's on the top shelf then?
