I mean this in the most constructive way possible. I feel like we are taking a turn towards a FS thread forum (CL style) vs. an all inclusive one stop shop for pinball enthusiasts. It's almost like if your question/problem isn't a 1st grade pin level issue that everyone has seen a thousand times and can answer in a sentence or two then few are willing to speak up. I myself am guilty of this. Although I am nowhere near as capable of helping folks as many here.
Am I onto something or have a just had a couple of topics lately that stumped those who stumbled upon them? I figured each of them out in time so no worries there. But I seem to remember just a couple years ago a serious devotion from folks here that made it almost impossible to go anywhere else for anything other then parts. I now find myself asking for help from owners on the retail side of things that have been selling parts for 40 years. And I have to say, they have been pretty helpful. PBR and PBL immediately come to mind. Let me know if I'm out of my mind.
