I have a spare that's decent but still a bit scratchy. I think Plainfield Glass made me a custom one for about 40-50 dollars.

Thanks! If nobody has a new piece lying around that they are willing to part with, I'll probably just go the same route as you and have one made by a local glass shop.

Quoted from balt:

NF was $1750 OBO.

When I talked to the person with the No Fear, someone had offered $2500 and was picking it up the next day.

#6554 1 year ago

Anyone have a Sopranos, BSD, Congo, or WCS up for trade?

#6555 1 year ago

Just a heads-up. Ball Baron is running an 18% off sale in honor of pinball being inducted into the 2018 Toy Hall of Fame. The coupon code is "Fame2018". It will be good for a week, and can be applied to both the Ninja and carbon balls ...

Well gee, if it is such a burden you should have let someone else buy it

You don't like buying from flippers? (just poking fun)

#6569 1 year ago
Quoted from jorant:

You should buy it. It's obviously under $2,500 because he didn't create a marketplace ad for it.

#6570 1 year ago

That reminds me... It would be nice to block out certain distributors that put up excessive numbers of ads that I don't want to see every time I browse the marketplace. When I go to cars.com I can sort by private sellers only and block out all the dealership listings, need something similar on pinside at this point.

#6571 1 year ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

I'm just giving him a hard time. No interest in pirates, nor do I have any more room.

#6573 1 year ago
Quoted from GAP:

Someone is missing a heart.

That is not true. I have a heart and have attempted to block your flipper ads so I don't have to se them in the market. It does not work.

These Advertisers that bother you so much are Also advertising Contributing supporters of Pinside. They Pay to support and advertise so we can use this valuable resource for free if we choose to which looking at your handle appears to be your contribution to Pinside! I personally Appreciate the advertisers of this forum as much as the content contributors.

No hate here on my end. Just asking pinside for an option to block sellers so that I don't have to see their listings anymore. I think Pinside can evolve with it's seller & buyer tools, shouldn't be too hard to implement this option for those of us that want to narrow down our search a little more.

it is actually a feature that is supposed to work. Block the user and you should not see their ads.

it is broken/has never worked for me sadly. It is already bad enough to have to filter their WTB spam of every clist in the region. Then you see the games they beat you to, flipped often the same day for the 1k mark up. Seems simple enough to be able to block content from some of these spammers.

I will say it is infuriating to see someone resell the pin you just tried to buy. Horseshit, really.

He was referring to pcprogrammer not having an insignia stating that he's donated to pinside.

I was just suggesting a site feature that would be nice to have.

Quoted from Whysnow:

The feature is not broken. That's just not how it works. It only ignores a person's forum posts. It has nothing to do with market ads.

I thought Robin said that is was supposed to be 'block a person and block all their content'. No pms, no forum posts, no ads, no nothin.

Would be nice if it worked that way.

#6582 1 year ago

Have a nice Getaway to trade for a WCS94. I am in the Chicago burbs.

Getaway very nice all around, LEDs, red cab, smooth pf, needs nothing. Not looking for a project game in return.

Advertisers are keeping this site going. Tears don't pay the bills, if they did there would be a Pinside Palace

Not arguing just trying to understand your logic. So because you only have 1 pinball machine (1200 posts in 2 years) this site and the cost to maintain it does not pertain to you yet a seller/business that more than likely Donates Thousands of dollars per year should not be allowed to solicit pinball related product in a pinball forum? Yes Adds such as this as well as on Apps can be a nuisance to some but thats why most like FREE apps as they understand who is paying the rent so to speak.

So, I have this correct. You want to block GAP from the Chicago thread in which you are viewing from WI? I like what Mike has to offer in this thread and i'm not in the MADISON thread crying about whomever from wherever WI! You guys are funny!

#6588 1 year ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

So you're basically looking for TIVO for pinside? And you'd like Robin (the guy paying the bills) to implement it? I bet he'll get right on it.

#6589 1 year ago

Mike is a standup guy, after meeting him in person i will never go anywhere else for games. I had a issue with a n.i.b. game and i phoned him, he made 1 call and took care of a problem in minutes. Im sorry if your butt hurt because you are painfully forced to view pinball machines ads, maybe you can call in the price police to make you feel better.

+1 Mike is a great seller. I asked for a couple days on a pin, and he said no problem. Held off the other hunters and kept his word.

Wow! That was an incredibly rude post. What's with all the animosity towards our northerly brethren? Even if you've had some bad experiences, it's hardly fair to lump every pinhead in an entire state together. I've had plenty of great deals as both a buyer and a seller with people from Wisconsin. This may technically be a "Chicago" thread, but all are welcome here.

#6594 1 year ago

How bout you step up? They bashing a local guy that they have no dealings with. They butt hurt and talking Chit, I speak fact and you jump on me? Way to go MOD class. class. class. I'm only lumping one, which I guess is ur BOY, so sorry, ahhh...maybe not. There's smart ppl in here.... so defend as u wish.
