    It is causing my playfields more dimpling. I have also noticed the cabinet decals are more wrinkled around the legs

    Quoted from SunnRAT:

    Never understood why people think pinball will die unless mainstream Joe Public will come along and save the day with his mainstream wallet.
    Pinball has survived for 100 years. It will survive 100 more.
    If you have just 1 pinball machine in your possession, and you love it, then it will survive for as long as you want it to.

    This thread is one of those "is the pinball bubble going to burst soon?" topics in disguise.

    I was gonna wait and see how this would go. It could fork off into a “all the people banned from covid thread come back in with their covid wisdom” Thread or your standard “will bubble burst?!l” thread.

    So far we’ve had a little sprinkling of each but I think it’s too early to make a definitive call!

    I’ll stay on top of it.

    I don't know Levi, it sure does smell like a bursting bubble. Is COVID the beginning of the end of location pinball and it may not come back? Been there and done that in the 90s when arcades died....

    Though this thread is unique in that it is saying that COVID may be the dagger that kills location play. I don't think COVID will kill the location pinball. Seems to me that barcades are on the rise and will just resume after this blows over.

    It’s got all the signs of a bubble burst thread in disguise I’ll give you that.

    I’m monitoring closely!!! Also selling all my pins while they are still worth something.

    Between covid and Gnr being so awesome I’m worried my pins will be worth pennies on the dollar by Halloween !

    It's also a little bit of 'manufacturers need to realize they can do things better' Pinside expertise.

    True. Why don’t the manufacturers ever think of that?!

    No. But we’ve been waiting on an office desk and two office chairs for 3 months, and were just informed it’ll be an extra month now.

    I keep nagging her to pick out a desk at an antique shop And I think I have her convinced.
