Trying to control who participates in a regional sales thread is a fool’s errand

#6605 4 months ago

I never tried to control that. I pointed out the elephant and got crushed by everyone but that B&T*H! Be true in what you do.

Yep and I have started so much shit and have been a troll in my 5 years here. Whatever..........................Elephant in the room has no response, that tells the story.

Chill Bill. Who says "butt hurt"? Lol.
Wisconsin is all good. Mike Nogle is a stand up guy.

I’m not exactly sure what we’re even talking about, as I too have had a few drinks

What is the elephant in the room? Honest question

Goodness, no one is asking to have GAP blocked from this thread or any other place. People are just asking for a way to filter the market. as a low end collector I understand where they are coming from since retail isn't in my budget.

Anyone have a stern shaker for a SAM game for sale?

I gotta say that I love the hilarious narrative that YOU distributors are keeping pinside afloat with your support of pinside.
You have over 40 ads and of all the archived ones, only 8 have sold (i.e. You actually paid the fees for the sales) and 31 sit unsold (i.e. You opted not to pay the fees to pinside for the sale).
https://pinside.com/pinball/community/pinsiders/jamaster10/market

It is like a trail of unsold houdinis...
https://pinside.com/pinball/community/pinsiders/jamaster10/market/archived-games-listed

Don't come here with your high and mighty flipping as the reason Pinside runs when you are not even paying the fees on the majority of sales. Your contribution tomthis site is minimal outside of selling IMHO.

If you are able to block a forum users content and not see their posts, then seems like a reasonable request to allow users to be able to block themselves from seeing your retail content that you apparently rarely sell here anyway.

Quoted from chad:

Doesnt seem to be the case...

here is GAP's selling history. Over 400 ads and it appears less than 10% even sell on pinside.

Logic shows if there is anyone as a prime example of allowing end useres to easily filter their marketplace to not have to view ads by specific people, then this is a key reason.
https://pinside.com/pinball/community/pinsiders/gap/market

I don't care to see 400 ads that are flooding the market,not marketted to me, and apparently not even selling here or paying the fees to clog up the market.

I am am sure GAP does not use Pinside as a primary means of advertising.

#6615 4 months ago

Seems like the one person complaining should just leave this thread, or better yet go design your own website and make your own rules.

#6616 4 months ago
Quoted from chad:

Even more reason why people sound be able to filter their experience to exclude his constant spamming of ads that are not intended for this market.
Just a suggestion and would be a nice feature (the whole reason someone even brought it up is since GAP is advertising a POTC without and ad, which per TOS means that game needs to be for <2500)

Trust me, we all feel the same about your constant ads on the Madison craigslist that are WTB and offering to help "fix" games. If I could set an auto-hide for those, I would

#6617 4 months ago

Man, team GAP is out in full force. All we need is someone to bring up Pinstadiums and this thread will be an all out war.

You.... you told people they shouldn't post here because they're not in Chicago. If I had a pinball machine for sale at a great price and you guys wanted it, would you REALLY tell me "get the hell out of here with that amazing deal, you're not in Chicago!!" Doubtful.

#6620 4 months ago

Wtf happened to this thread? Sell some shit or gtfo! Get this bitch back on track. Faaccckkkk!!! More drama than the bold and the beautiful.

#6621 4 months ago

Ok I'll jump in with a bump for an actual buy/sell

Still looking for a Fish Tales Jurassic Park or The Shadow

I'm in Champaign, but am driving through Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison in the next week or so (crossing all the regional sale threads!)

#6622 4 months ago

I have a Star Trek Stern Pro I'm looking to trade and 3 hours from Chicago, could meet half way for the right trade.

Ok here is the additional ad that was requested, because its over $3000.

#6624 4 months ago

Okay, everybody has made their positions perfectly clear. Now let's please get this thread back on track. If you have a problem with someone, take it to PM or open up a feedback thread. And for the record, the cutoff is $3,000. If you want to sell a game for more than that in a regional thread, you are required to place an ad in the market.

I will mention to Robin the idea of filtering ads in the market by seller. He will then decide if this is something he wants to implement. There is to be no further discussion of this matter in this thread. That's not what this thread is for. If you feel strongly about this subject, then feel free to start a thread about it the feature requests sub-forum ...

#6627 4 months ago

and your house would have cost 1/10th of what it did, and your taxes would be a fraction of what you pay now. Plus no stress traffic. Just think of all the machines you could own.

#6628 4 months ago

I have a super clean/refurbished tales from the crypt

#6629 4 months ago

I want to personally stand up for GAP pinball. Mike is one of the best guys out there in the retail pinball market. He is not one of those wipe & shine retailers that sells machines that break down the second they leave your house. Mike/GAP is retail, he is NOT for the typical guy on Pinside who chases deals and fixes his own games. However, he does appeal to the collector side who only wants pristine, 100% working, fully shopped machines. There are those guys here on Pinside(they just don't post like some of us idiots do), that market does exist. Otherwise, why would GAP waste his money advertising here for little to no return? Get to know Mike and he as much as a horse trader as the rest of us. You have to take the time to know him, not bash him out of spite or jealousy. Run a brick & mortar business yourself, not out of a garage or basement, nor a home based route, then maybe some have the right to bitch. His advertising helps pay for this forum that we all like to bitch about and are too cheap to support(that includes my lazy ass).

Suck it up buttercups.

Maybe not 1/10th but housing prices are lower here for sure. Cost of living is not too bad.

Holy silver balls Chicago for sale thread! Wow did the train come off the rails

This thread was created (see post #1) as a place for locals to congregate and hopefully post for sale/trade games in here first. Why?

1. Keep the games local
2. Meet other local pinsiders
3. Instead of competing with all pinside on the for sale/trade - let's give locals first dibs over flippers (see 1 & 2)

Our friends in Wisconsin are welcome here as well. To me, it's still in same general locale and I've met MANY who are great pinball hobbyists and those who I now happily call friends. Still prefer games to stay on this side of the state line, but WI I consider part of the family as well. Bears are still in 1st btw....

The distributors are welcome in here too (GAP, Pincades, Kingpin..). Sometimes, they offer some nice deals to locals first. Being truthful, sometimes they do their markup dance and flip as well. The buyer always ultimately has a choice. But these guys have offered deals over time that have benefited us locals too. Let's not vilify them. We can still get pissed when they flip - but - then don't sell to them. You're choice. They're just being opportunistic - can't fault them for that. So long as they don't spam this thread - which they don't - they're part of the local scene too.

Marketplace is another issue I don't want to touch. Let's all enjoy this thread and leave our differences before entering. I enjoy this hobby and more importantly the people. Yoose guys.

btw....my Houdini (which was priced to sell) is leaving Chicago area because no one here wanted to buy it.

And here I thought all the recent thread activity was going to be an argument about who gets to be the first to sell me a WCS... So disappointing.

LOL...actually only had a day between my game selling and his game selling...and I had another game pending during that time that the seller decided to keep. So at least I have a slight excuse.
