So I've and been on this site for a few years now and have come across so much negativity. There are many positive and helpfull topics posted on this site and then there's the "keyboard hero" who has to throw shit into the mix. Why? This is your time keyboard heroes...tell us why you're so negative. Who are you and what makes you so much smarter and better than the rest.

I’m smarter than some because I was taught proper use of apostrophes in grade school.

The negativity is fine and entertaining at times but the alpha male gatekeeping is annoying. There's a couple of cats on here that no matter what the topic, they steal the thread to make it about how smart they are and how dumb everyone else is. It's not a great way to expand the hobby and encourage innovation.

Innovation sucks (hello Pinbar!) and expanding the hobby has created the price increases everybody hates.

We need to put a stop to these things for good!

Especially when someone new walks in the door with a question

For the record, I think you're hilarious CrazyLevi and are not one of those cats.

I have an idea.

Pinside could add a filter for when someone creates a thread. Before it posts it could sniff a word like “price” from the subject line.

They could still post if they wanted but first they would be presented with an automatic search result of price threads.

This topic isn't manly enough!!!

You mean those sad weirdos who go off about an imaginary war on boys in all the OT topics about movies and tv shows, right?

Never been scammed. Does that count?

Also never, ever, rated/ranked/reviewed a pinball machine here or anywhere.

I just like to have fun.

Some people do seem they like to argue for the sake of arguing and always have to be right.

In a thread about negativity, I am shocked that the King of Locked threads is given a pass!

I will say, the “negativity” of Pinside is why it is beloved. Kinda like RGP, people are REALISTIC.

  • It’s not always sunshine and rainbows.
  • When someone hacks a fuckload of mods onto their machine and blows up the boards, that person needs to be corrected. The manufacturer is not liable for ugly mods that do damage.
  • Glued-on action figures DO NOT increase the value. I don’t care about $100 worth of Avengers toys.
  • Some unscrupulous folk enjoy ripping off unsuspecting pinball people. It’s sad and immoral. People need to be warned about scams

As for the basement threads, people need a place to hang out and bullshit. There’s always that group of guys who show up to a pinball show and drink beer out in the parking lot for the entire duration. Seems weird to me to travel someplace but never actually attend, but to each their own.

If you know a thread is gonna be a cluster, then ignore it. If I see a thread that says “OMG WOMEN LITERALLY DON’T PLAY PINBALL HERE’S WHY MEN ARE RESPONSIBLE.” I know nothing good will come of it.
It’s an insult to women in pinball and dismisses their existence just for someone to garner praise online.

Everyone has their thing, and we are responsible for our own enjoyment.

I feel like this topic is going to turn into a NJ sub/grinder/hero/sandwich discussion.

Now, now, my good chap, the use of Eye Dialect is an art form of the highest order, from which the *Queen's* English needs no defense.

Poll sucks because it has two redundant choices.

Does that make me negative or a keyboard hero?

I resemble your remark.

Seriously, I most often enjoy the banter and also have fun ribbing others at times. Follow the Pinside rules, don't make things personal or threaten anyone, on the other hand don't be a snowflake, and if/when you say something stupid then own it and endure the consequences.

One helpful thing is to realize that mood is often difficult to convey in a post. Just because someone may disagree with you, it doesn't mean they are attacking or belittling you. I typically try to give the poster the benefit of the doubt and seek clarification (sometimes it turns out they were being a jerk, but usually not).

As far as the poll goes, I'm more complicated than a simple binary choice (consider me a realist when it comes to the optimist/pessimist duality).

I didn't even notice it was a poll.
I try to type positivity; However, my thoughts are filled with negativity... is that a problem? To which selection shall I cast?

Those are the real heroes. And should be respected as such. If you want to discuss or debate this further, I'll be in the parking lot, having a beer.

I call those dudes the “Ackchyually” guys.

Me: well, if 2+2=4 then I guess the answers 4

Ackchyually Guy: It’s pretty pathetic that you only see it as 2+2. Obviously you’re close minded and know absolutely nothing otherwise you would’ve included 4+0, 3+1, 2+1+1, and 1+1+1+1 in your answer.
Please provide a link showing 2+2 is the common saying, quit making up this straw man that any other math is against your view point.

I had a Sammy for lunch and surprised the sandwich police weren't called. Ran out of lunch meat so doubled the cheese and tripled the lettuce. Wasn't too bad
