    Quoted from mrgone:

    Wow, this is a positive thread.
    You think spooky will not be here in 18 months?
    You think pat lawlors game will not turn the whole pinball community on its ear?
    Nothing, nothing is made in America anymore.
    It's sad but its the world we live in.

    I will keep that in mind while designing tools that are being made 50 feet or so from the office I sit in as I get ready to start my Saturday at work.

    Quoted from PW79:

    Right on, good luck
    Hey what's up w/Hobbit & all the "rumors"?
    Got any info to put the community at ease?

    Rumors? You are going to have to be more specific, this is pinside.

    Quoted from usandthem:

    Profit is not evil except when coupled with paying your employees a slave wage, a rusty scalpel, do-it-yourself healtcare plan, and no retirement plan. It's the busted social contract that is the biggest concern. I'm not pointing a finger at any specific pinball company, but just the trend of the way that labor is being treated in the U.S as a whole.

    Maybe you have had a different experience in manufacturing than I have.

    I was more than happy to start out grinding burs off of steel for a meager wage in order to gain the knowledge and skills it took to get to where I am now. In fact, I have nothing but respect for the employers who played a large part in my career of choice.

    Quoted from juanton:

    Lol. This from the guy with three banned accounts. Look, you guys want to try to act like you are looking out for the good of the community. In reality, the core community was split by JJP and WOZ. Like it or not there are now two camps, pro JJP and anti JJP. Now there are some guys on here that like to think they are unbiased and are just "straight shooters that call it like they see it", but are the first to pile on. You guys know who you are, at least be honest with yourselves.

    Quoted from juanton:

    Lol. Dude I didn't call anyone out specifically. Besides, why aren't you at PATZ?

    Because, "manufacturing is hard". Work.

    Quoted from JonH123:

    $50k? lol
    It's going to cost a lot more than that.
    Most of my wishlist is in the pinside top 30.

    Keep your options open. The top 30 might not be what you end up caring about after a while.

    Quoted from goatdan:

    As to who will be around - I do think there will be a market shakeout, but I think we'll definitely have multiple manufacturers around.

    One thing I would bet on....You will still be around, and so will I and many others. The more of us who stick around and play/buy games the more games we will see.

    I wonder what the turnover rate on pinheads is?

    Quoted from rotordave:

    Well, all things going to plan I will be at the Chicago Expo Oct 14-18 then down to the Expo at Banning the 25th so plenty of time to drink with everyone!!!
    See, that's what Pinside is for (well, the 5 years I've been here anyway..)
    Meeting Pinsiders, having a beer, talking pinball, helping people fix their pinballs ... thats what it's all about.
    Look at all the great dudes who welcomed me into their homes on my Route66 trip. Basically strangers, all bought together on Pinside by the love of some strange antiquated machines with silver balls inside them. They didn't care that I was "over the border"
    Pinside for the win!

    It's been a few years since I have made the trip out to Expo, I might have to do it just to have a beer with some pinsiders. We can talk about the time a Data East Star Wars broke a world record sale price because of a few autographs, and the time a few games were almost built while we battle it out on Stern, JJP, and Spooky pins for who pays the tab.

    Quoted from SadSack:

    I thought I might not be on the list..... until you added the second hand.

    Only you can turn that around. Don't be such a sad sack.

    Quoted from BC_Gambit:

    I sense this night will end with a bunch of pinheads spilling their digital blood over no reason in particular.
    Why can't we all just... get along?

    I just spit on my computer....no blood though, does that count?

    Quoted from mountaingamer:

    Not everyone on pinside still live in their parents basement & post from their Obama phones

    I will have you know, my mom paid good money for my Obama phone!

    If I had to block someone everytime I disagree, I wouldn't be able to see my own posts.

    Quoted from MinusWorlds:

    198 down votes isn't because of old-timers or herd mentality. It's because the OP is a dick who likes to be inflammatory. LTG is a great guy who's helped many people here. for free. Maybe THAT'S why people listen to him and tend to agree with him.
    Or maybe people are sick of people spouting out at the mouth with no intentions other than to cause angst or rile people up. That's not what this site is about. rusty should be banned or suspended for oh I dunno...18 months?
    He adds no actual value to this site. But since he doesn't technically break any rules he's free to stay. Negative karma should get instituted and too much negative karma should result in a suspension. But hey that's just my opinion.

    A bit harsh. After all, you are reading the thread.,

    Also jonharvey123 you are still reading. You might as well open your account back up make amends and play nice. Much worse things have been said and forgiven on both sides of any issue.

    Quoted from Spencer:

    Agreed, nice move, delete all your posts but continue to thumbs down others posts. Classy move.

    I don't follow you?
