DJ two weeks ago my wife and I spent 2 nights in the city seeing the Harry Potter play with one of our grand daughters. We stayed 2 nights in a hotel and also visited the aquarium and 2 restaurants. We tried on every occasion to use the Vic qr system on every occasion it was rejected. Saying we are not part of this system. It was not just my phone my wife's phone got the same result. Then today I see the government saying people are not using their qr system. What a bad joke it appears to me that  retailers are not  on it. It appears to me we are once again let down by poor public service action or lack of it. And people wonder why  a lot are loath to go to large public gatherings.

Old Dee I am no sure from your post  above whether YOUR PHONES or the Restaurants do not have the latest Vic Gov QRCode?

If your phones were rejected Then I suggest you need to use the App to get the updated Vic Govt QR code on your phones.

If it's the restaurants that haven't got The new Govt code then they are at fault of not upholding the Govt system.

In ANY CASE you should have signed a Manual  system which each restaurant etc. would / should have had for  record purposes. 
 

That manual system had been in for months do us no excuse.

Also I am assuming your phones are " I Phones" capable of this technology being used.

I just don't get it. Sutton comes out yesterday to complain that complacency has crept back into society, re: COVID. And yet he ticks off having level 4 of the Southern, Olympic, and Ponsfor

Reminder to premium members with reserved seats; you can now sit in your allocated seats this week. Make sure to get there early to catch up with your seat neighbours that you haven't seen in 18 month

Kept trying to book online and keeps putting where I don’t want to be. I can’t explain to a computer I want an undercover seat 😡 Looks like I’m getting wet (and not in the good way)

re QR scanning, and for those who don't already know

you are supposed to use the vic gov services app on your smart phone

when you go to app store, DON'T search for "QR code scanning" or similar- you won't find it, but you will find heaps of other third party QR apps.

you should search for "Service Victoria". The gov app is not just a QR code app. it is a general services app, where QR scanning is just one of the many services within the app

Hmm, yes we used the manual system. The point is I put the Vic QR system on our phones the week before. Our phones work fine with the other QR system. It is perfect example of why the VIc  quarantine system fails it has been poorly administered.

Well Govt would be expecting that Restaurants  would be updating the correct QR Code system as Covid  Plan responsibility.

Needs  a few Check Officers to call around and do some Strategic calls to these slack establishments. 
 

But well done on your part and hoped you enjoyed Harry Potter with your granddaughter.

Sadly don't hold your breath. I suspect there are no inspectors. I asked 2 of the restaurants about it and the staff knew nothing about the Vic system. So I just filled in the register.

The system created right now with no top level and actually promoting crowding beggars belief. Either put COVID protocols in that allow for social distancing or don’t so that people can get back to the footy with ease. 

Sounds like they are making a simple thing complicated.

It is a complete joke. We should be able to go to the footy with our membership cards and others can just turn up on the day and buy a ticket the way they used to. The whole social distancing and qr codes is a joke. Every time I have been to the footy my services victoria app doesn't work anyway. Just walz on through. Same at the train station where they don't require an qr code and you can get on any carriage, stand where you want and all the while Mr Hippobottom is standing behind you and sneezing down your spine.

I really wish people would wear masks on the packed trains to and from the football like the LAW says you should.

Less than 10% of people are wearing masks, and I just don't get why. It is always crowded on those trains, how hard is it to slap a mask on?

FFS the complacency of so many is going to really screw us. And I don't know why nobody is monitoring it either. We should have people on trains, especially footy trains, ensuring mask compliance. 

At the moment with 0 new cases beyond this one returned traveller, it seems unlikely the crowds will be cancelled. We know the risk of being outdoors is super minimal. 

I caught my first train since well before Covid on the weekend and was actually quite surprised that almost everyone was wearing masks. 

Main exceptions were a couple of the usual 'Facebook certified medical expert' types, and Sydney supporters. The latter I assume were in town for the game, and maybe didn't know the requirements re masks on public transport?

Aside from actually being able to use your own seat, this system is much worse imo.

But if you don't tell the collectors DC it is mud standard.  It's bit like having a champion footballer who is constantly injured if you cannot play you are useless.

If anyone else had an issue where the ticket is not appearing in the Melbourne mobile app, you probably don't have an email address linked to your membership (can happen if someone else has bought your ticket) If you give the club a ring, they can help you out connecting it

additionally it only sends a ticket to mfc app if your membership has a reserved seat

all non-reserved-seat members just go to ticketek (the club does send a reminder email with barcode)

Anyone worked out how to take a kid (under 5) to their reserved seat? In previous years they just go through the turnstile with you, but this year the mcg and state government require anyone 12 months+ to be ticketed. Mfc have provided no guidance in any emails, nor does ticketek or mcg have any info.

i think in ticketek under your barcode add a 1 to "upgade child 1-5 $0"

at least that's what i did when entering my booking in previous weeks - 1 barcode 2 tickets $0 cost

that's before mfc started to directly download reserved seat member's ticket to your phone's mfc app. i think in your situation as a reserved seat member you should ring the club. alternatively i hear club is having the kiosk outside the ground and they maybe able to help, but that's leaving it quite late

The lack of communication around how this will work for members and people with kids is extremely poor. As an AFL member it doesn't impact me too much cos I have to reserve tickets through Ticketek anyway but I feel for people in @wonnabeeri
situation. No wonder crowds are down, it all gets too hard and with the weather forecast as well it just becomes easier to stay home with the heater/fire going.
Not blaming MFC by the way, the communication should be from the AFL as it impacts all club's.

Tried ringing and they only man the phones mom-fri 9-5. And they haven’t answered two tweets asking what is going on. Pretty crap really. Don’t want to drive 90 minutes each way with a 2 year old only to have issues at the gate.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane.

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
