Quoted from Viggin900:
Your game is way too loud. I don't like sudden shrilling noises when I am playing other games around. I was enjoying playing other games and getting into the play when that thing goes off. Don't be a showoff with your game, not everyone wants to go deaf.By making a spectacle you are setting yourself up for critique.
You "sir" are the ONLY one that has made any kind of negative critique regarding the bell, that I am truly aware of.
And I can assure you that your opinion on the matter, is a minority opinion. I have received countless compliments during multiple shows for the presentation of FH, with all its mods included. I was even given an award from LAX last year for best Pin in show, and nobody voiced any concerns regarding the bell. I have people contacting me with nothing but praise on FH, and they want to know what I will be doing special for it at the next show. Yes I do like to set that one pin apart. Yes I do like to show it off. Yes I do like to have fun with it. Yes I do like to share it with others (including you). Yes I like to see the smiles and laughs on the faces of the kids, and adults alike, When they managed to special it, and ring the bell.
So help me understand this. Why would you go wishing it to BREAK DOWN simply because you "dont like sudden shrilling noises when you are playing other games around". How old are you really? Should others not be allowed to enjoy it because you are simply annoyed by it? Do you have any idea how much of my time and money goes into ensuring that all my pins preform at their best, so folks can have the most entertaining experience possible? Wow! Why would you "poke" me with a disrespectful and asinine comment like that, especially when I am partially responsible for "painstakingly" bringing nine pins from central KY, for YOU and others to gladly enjoy at my expense? Pretty sure any of the folks who bring pins, would be offended by that comment.
Why could you not have just made a more tactful critique regarding the bell, and we could have had a more civil discussion? And regarding "Don't be a showoff with your game", I don't think I could craft a reply to that if I tried. That foolishness speaks entirely for itself. Is that not the point of the entire show?
Bottom line! Its my machine, and if I want to show it off, I SURE AS HELL WILL! If I want the bell to ring, IT SURE AS HELL WILL! If I want to make a spectacle that the majority of the folks find entertaining, I SURE AS HELL WILL. If Cory or Eric determine its a real problem, I would adhere to their wishes and gladly turn it off.
So to now end this spectacle. Good riddance, get some therapy, and you can kiss my ASS! BTW, the bell stays as is!
To everyone else. My apologies that this kind of needless immaturity had to occur. But I just could not let that ridiculousness stand. I truly hope you all have a wonderful time at the expo, and I wish it to be a great success. Wish I could be there. Might see you in Cincy later in the year.
