    I want to see what kind of response this question gets:[quoted image]

    I am imagining Steven standing behind his customer just waiting to swoop in and clean a game when they're done. Like the ball boys in tennis

    Nah he’s got his g/f , fiancé, Wife to do
    That. When you’re a successful entrepreneur with mad internet marketing abilities making the salary of a thoracic surgeon you don’t have time for that!

    Amusingly, the pictures he posted of that action do not depict his ambiguously significant other.

    Everyone talking about him needing decor... basically talking about moving deck chairs on the Titanic, people!

    I was a few miles away again picking up a game, and was too tempted to at least see where it was located. I resituated the game in my car due to unsavory rattling, and left.

    But I took time for a picture...

    Have any trouble finding a place to park?

    I think all the customers took the bus or maybe rode in on the bike.

    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Really, there NEEDS to be retro/gaming decor, signage, pictures, lights, artwork, pop culture, etc to get gameroom/arcade feel. And if it's true to ANY part of its weird name, there certainly needs to be artifacts, history, game info, pictures, etc.

    And if anyone gave it to him for free, no doubt there would be.

    Obviously rhetoric. There were a few 80+ something-year-olds going in with oxygen tanks.

    (edit)

    At the risk of annoying a few of you I'll say this:

    The stuff he has done in the past (and continues to do by posting in the third person) is comical and absurd. However this thread will never die because Pinside will not let it die. He will not go away because Pinside will not let him go away.

    Now that you are basically just hurling first grader insults "you are ugly" I think this thread has taken on an entirely new low of bullying. Please take a step back. I know you are all better than that.

    If this is all Pinside has left mods should lock and close this thread in my opinion. People will never move on and should instead be forced to move on.

    Sort of agree with this, the dude is SUPER annoying with the way he behaves but can't control his genetics so the insults on how he looks is a bit uncalled for! Not every one around here is Jack Danger

    #3686 4 months ago

    Could you say this thread has turned ugly?

    #3687 4 months ago

    @ brianmegaphone - actually it's not something that is directly personal - I just quoted an idiom in reference to another post that was made.

    A rose by any other name smells just as sweet, The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. There are a ton of them.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    I downvoted not for comment on looks, but because the only involvement you have had in here is to add to posts and try telling others that they should close a thread. You aren't allowed to announce a thread drain, and so I personally feel shouldn't be allowed to announce a close thread comment publicly either. It's just plain annoying to others.

    I can publicly suggest you just use the drain feature as was mentioned over a month ago; or simply don't click on it if you don't want to read it and don't post on it if you don't want to help topic keep going.

    #3689 4 months ago

    I honestly do agree that some of the personal comments are a bit much, even if someone super doesn't like the guy. I mean the comments on personal stuff he can't help.

    We are all different...

    I do think he should consider more appropriate business owner attire than sweats, and a little (maybe quite a bit from some pics/vids) more grooming would help.

    And, frankly, he deserves to recieve some attitude in my opinion after all his b.s., baby games/comments, and attitude.

    Hmm, I could actually end it right here:

    “You know what, I screwed up. I borrowed someone’s equipment, dropped it, didn’t tell them, and didn’t even try to make it right until you all forced me to. I should have been better than that. I responded to hurled insults that got out of hand by using fake accounts and writing way more than needed to be written. I tried to reciprocate against the insults rather than address the matter at hand and apologize. I involved family members and friends to stick up for me when I created this problem myself. And yes my business is struggling as are all arcades. And I do need to sell off some of my extra machines so that I can decrease the need to ask for handouts here to try to stay in business. All of us need to strive to be better people and this kick in the ass tells me I have farther to go, but thankfully time to do so. Not gonna ask for any forgiveness, I helped create and added to the mess this became. But I will try to do better. Sorry for the annoyance I have caused all of you. Hope to prove my words by forthcoming actions.”

    There you go. Just has to sign the damn thing. Nobody wishes him failure, nobody wants to see an arcade close. But yeah the social shaming continues for a reason: he keeps stoking it with his fake account comments that are the opposite of what I wrote above, and demonstrate some undeserved grandiosity that serves nobody well. I suspect if he lays low then this thread will come to its own inglorious end since at some point we all get tired of beating a dead horse. Do I have any faith he will have some awakening here: nah, it’s unfortunately who he is and how he was raised. But one can hope to plant some small seed of “gosh maybe how I handled this all wasn’t the best way forward and should have listened to others advice”. Maybe another decade or two under him he will learn from this episode and at least moderate his own worst tendencies.

    I find this thread humorous. Some of it’s childish and dark but it is what it is. No one is forcing anyone to read this stuff.

    Not entirely humorous to the individuals that got screwed over etc.

    But the rest of it ...yeah, I know what you are meaning of course.

    Now that's commitment!

    #3697 4 months ago

    Some days you’re the hammer, some days you’re the Steven

    Have no idea what the fuck that means

    #3698 4 months ago

    I agree, personal insults aren't the high road here. But this thread has had numerous other elements, and we are all here now to see updates.

    Akin to rubbernecking a road accident? Also, there is some very funny content added as well. I look forward to reading the updates, especially Colson's pix!

    Pinside has a few other threads to read if you dislike this particular one.

    Lastly, we are all members of "Team Boob"; here is our faction. Mr. Steven has his trolling shill accounts and TNT cronies to back him.

    #3699 4 months ago

    He should take a long hard look at his wild hair and beard. And clothes. While he may like it. What does a customer coming in for the first time think ?

    You only get one chance to make a first impression.

    You want repeat business. Do everything you can to earn it. Look professional, for a tech.
