    Thank you, pinside directly helped in getting me into the hobby and I’ve met great people through the community. Also saved me some $ through the tech sub forums. The donation is my thank you!

    Woo congrats Pinside!

    #56 89 days ago

    Thank you Robin for making me what I am today.

    ...a fat ass that substitutes going to the gym for spending way too much time on Pinside.

    Seriously... congratulations for building and maintaining one of the best hobby sites on the internet. Well done.

    #57 89 days ago

    Congrats Robin and Pinside Team, great site and many entertained and informative hours are spent here !

    #58 89 days ago

    I don't know what I'd ever do without Pinside!

    #59 89 days ago

    Thank you Robin!

    And your first post of record seems even more relevant today than ever!

    I joined in 2011 and have been enjoying it ever since.

    Thanks Robin and Martijn

    #61 89 days ago

    Congratulations and thank you! I wouldn't be the pinhead that I am without Pinside!

    #62 88 days ago

    Proud member of the sometimes sweet, but often angsty teenage website that is Pinside. Your HTML efforts have most likely played a major part in making pinball great again.

    #63 88 days ago

    Thank you for feeding my addiction! Couldn't have done it w/o this site

    #64 88 days ago

    I’ve only been a member for about a year but I have been playing pinball since the 80s. This site is viewed by me every night, and has helped me so much with everything from troubleshooting to finding friends online. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful hang out spot as this. Here’s to another 16 years!

    #65 88 days ago

    Happy birthday pinside!
    Nice job Robin and team!

    #66 88 days ago

    Congrats Robjn and Martin!

    #67 88 days ago

    Awesome job!!

    #68 88 days ago

    Robin for President!!! Thank you Robin for all that you do!

    #69 88 days ago

    A sincere thank you Robin for all your hard work! This hobby would be poorer by a mile without Pinside. Here's to another 16 (or 20) more years!

    Happy Sweet 16 Pinside . You’ve never looked better. It’s not a party without gifs.
    Any pics of Robin or Martin sporting a mullet?

    #78 88 days ago

    Truthfully, this is the absolute best forum I’ve ever been a part of. I wish you could license your format because other forums aren’t near as user friendly as this one. Congrats!

    #79 88 days ago

    Thanks for bringing the worldwide pinball community together, Robin!

    Congratulations on 16 great years!

    #80 88 days ago

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY from down under - Australia

    #81 88 days ago

    Gefeliciteerd Robin, super te zien hoe pinside gegroeid is !

    #82 88 days ago

    Congratulations and THANK YOU, Robin! Your passion and purpose has produced the most robust, informative, and entertaining pinball source on the planet...as they say on the interwebs... IMMAMCULATE!

    #84 88 days ago

    A Big Thank You for everything you do Robin and congratulations on the 16 years! Happy Birthday!!

    #85 88 days ago

    Congratulations Robin and Happy Birthday! It is great to have a single place to discuss a variety of games (and help others fix them when needed). Thank you!

    Being on the Pinside forum, almost three years ago, probably saved my life.

    Short version:

    When I had a stroke and I was dying, my now ex wife left me to die.

    An email was sent on Pinside.

    " I don't think your buddy is going to make it'

    I had a stroke and one brain surgery at this point, I think I weighed 130. 120.

    After that emails were sent on Pinside and I lived. People were able to help me. They found out I needed help at all.

    Pinside helped save my life Robin.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely.

    This image right here is a pinsider who came to see me at that time exactly. I was almost dead.

    That guy there is one cool dude too.

    This place (nursing home) is a horrible place in my memory. But a picture like that, it shows me. I can make it.

    #90 88 days ago

    This forum has made pinball ownership a reality for me so, Thank you Robin and thank you fellow pinsiders!

    #91 88 days ago

    Congratulations! Have been a regular for the past 14 years, now I wonder what I missed those first two years

    #92 88 days ago

    Congrats Robin, on a great website. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.

    #93 88 days ago

    Great place you have built here Robin.
    People just getting into pinball today I didnt have the pleasure of growing up on RGP. Think of a forum with no pictures or vids how bland is that.

    Yes the online world was different back in those days.
    Pinside has weathered the storm and is the largest most active for a reason. Thank you Robin and mods for all your hard work and dedication to our community.

    #94 88 days ago

    Pinside is awesome! I met some great, life-long friends and peeps on here.

    Congrats Robin. Here's to another 16 more!

    #96 88 days ago

    Still the best forum anywhere!

    #97 88 days ago

    I don’t post a ton but I want to say how thankful I am for pinside. Thank you to all the people who have helped me troubleshoot, learn about the hobby, buy games, and just enjoy a great hobby.

    And thanks to Robin for creating such a great place.

    #98 88 days ago

    #99 88 days ago

    Happy birthday Pinside!

    Great job Robin!

    I'm relatively new to the hobby and not a regular poster but enjoy lurking and reading all the threads.

    Thanks to Pinside- ive made a few deals and met some awesome pinball people!

    Got to host @nicovolta for a weekend EM class and got to pick his brain while I hosted him during his stay in Chi-town.

    Cheers to the next 16 years!

    Now ive got to dig out my copy of GTA Vice City and boost some cars......lol
