    I never imagined there could be so much drama in the pinball hobby!!! Why can't everyone just get along and love pinball? Just sayin...

    #2 5 years ago

    I don't I know the answer to your question but if I have another golf course get together will you bring a few games?!?!?!

    if the forums would go back to the way they were in the ol days it would be great > All Tech Talk, no whinning little old ladies with nothing better to do then bitch n moan about everything, no posting of micheal eating popcorn, no drama, no he said/he said, no bitching about delivery dates....Just Simply Tech Talk!

    When was that? I have been around since the very earliest days, and I don't recall that. RGP maybe.

    What it comes down to is there are way too many people in it to either make money or turn it into an investment and not enough people in it for the love of pinball.

    I am confused, I guess. Pinside forum was nothing but a newsreader like page for the first few years, with very little discussion at all. I mean virtually none - 6 months worth of conversation would fit on the page without needing to scroll down. But when Robin made the big upgrade to the first real forum format, it got busy fairly quickly. And it has never been sterile tech talk only over here. RGP, sure. But this thread and your comment seemingly laments the downfall of Pinside forums. But I was here all along, and it has always been more than just the tech place to talk pinball.

    A thread for people to whine about people whining. I have seen it all now. No funeral.

    Why did I click on this topic????

    #22 5 years ago

    Yeah, I've been using the "unvisit" feature more and more lately.

    #23 5 years ago

    Yeah stop your bitching your old hags and help me with my Tech question that NO ONE has answered. I bet there has been many many hundreds, probably thousands, of posts which 99.9% are dribble. I came for help, now help a brother out.

    I love other peoples drama. My life is boring. I would not come here as much if it were not so interesting.

    Lets face it. tech wise, one should be able to search and find the answer. no need to keep reanswering the same questions.

    But pinball is more than just tech, its people. And good, bad and ugly ( sometimes smelly) people are the best part.

    #26 5 years ago

    I like pie.....and boobs....not necessarily in that order......

    Tech talk is great, I try to help out if I can, but when its the 75th time Ive seen the question I just pass over it now.

    Many of us freaking love pinball and hanging out together hence a lot of inside humor develops between a large group of us, even guys that arent local and spills over online as we cant logistically go hang out with each other every day and keep our shenanigans in check. Id find this place very boring if there wasnt a little drama here and there.

    I hope this isnt a category of posts you were referring to. Well, not so much the drama, just the shenanigans.

    EDIT----and for the record Ive never had a problem with any moderator being power hungry, there has been a few threads I didnt quite agree with the lock but hey man, if it keeps the peace, so be it.

    only one? more like a few.... then someone gets accused of multiple accts and get no reply when you email the prick who bans your significant others account. back to playing pinball instead of talking pinball.

    No shit. I discount any complaint made by the bearer of that mess.

    #37 5 years ago

    that dominatrix chic is pretty damn hot tho. I put it in the netflix que, because of all the sleeze and the vampire looking dude. I normally don't like musicals, but if it looks like there's going to be tits in it, i'll sit through it while i'm painting.

    #38 5 years ago

    Sadly, not this year. I had too much burn out with 2 straight years of drought. What would you all say if I committed to next February?

    Who the hell are those guys? What the f@%¥?? How has that not been more of a topic of discussion? Or did I just miss that in hibernation? Someone point out what I can possibly do to avoid ever communicating or doing any form of business with those two.

    If there is ever a problem anyone can take it up with Robin.

    That was way uncalled for.

    How is it possible to claim one does not care about pinside, nor have the time to care, yet have the time to male a 45 min. video about it?

    Quoted from Squeakman:

    Life has forced me out earlier than I had planned, but there is SO MUCH about the hobby these days that I will surely never miss, and you just hit on a big one.

    I still love the game of pinball, but the more machines I let go and the farther I get away from it all, the more liberated I feel.

    Its easy to avoid doing business with GRC, just don't over pay for a pin.

    Pinside reminds me too much of the Simpsons. The golden years are gone but still going strong. Best to get take advantage now.

    Who are you by the way, are you ebjimmyg's lady? I see you had a ban vote sent from the locked thread....or is ebjimmy posting from your pc?

    Always nice to know who is actually posting on pin side, my wife has an account but probably 60+members have met her/us and we hang out together, nor have I ever posted anything under her username.

    Thanks in advance for the clarification.
