Does anyone know if there is a place to access all the official club player portraits taken each season?

AFL Photos only has the odd one. Robert Scott, for example, season 2000 portait is there, others aren't.

How long has everyone been on here for?

Just also wondering, who were the former and founding Mods of the board?
June 2011 for me, I was 13...
TheDoctor11 and GG were the mods back then.
My first stint was as 'JStar589' in October 2013

My current stint as 'SparkleNarkle' began in August 2018
Ooohhhh, you're that guy!

Yeah, I'm that guy. Unfortunately, the jumpers I designed at the ripe old age of 12 are a broken link now, but I can see my early posts:

And then I went into the wilderness. But then I put five years under my belt, and now I'm back...

Is there anything more FJGD than this exchange?
Not a whole lot more. chibimatty, akkaps and Klim chimed in debating whether we had already worn a similar design, but that was as far as it went. I entered a 'Clash of the Jumpers' competition that had ended a month earlier, used the shapes tool on Word to make a couple of Coca-Cola Amatil jumpers, had a bit of a chat here and there and then left

10 year old me found FJGD thanks to some old shield style logos. Boxing Day that year I made an account and a little over a month later I turned 11. Have not changed usernames but changed teams from Collingwood to Port in 2015. Caused a mild shitstorm on here for a little bit.

Got sick of Collingwood and didn’t like Buckley. Port seemed exciting with a fast attacking play style.
That aged well. Ken Hinkley/Port now the most boring coach/team to watch and Collingwood made a Grand Final, but gotta stick through the bad I suppose.
