    I wanted to take a minute an offer an apology to any pinsider that I may have offended or upset by some of my posts.

    Those of you that have read some of my posts know that I can be somewhat hard to please, as well as opinionated. I didn't mean to offend anyone by what I have posted. I feel that I should have handle some of my posts in a better way, and I did not do that, so for that I am truly sorry.

    I hope that all pinsiders will accept my apology, and will still be willing to help me out if I have an tech questions on repairing my games. I will no longer be posting comments other than that pertain to repair and tech help. I think that will help me to stay on the straight and narrow.

    Again my apologies to all.......Tim

    First rule of pinside- No apologies , no regrets.

    The moderator team will let you know when you've crossed the line. Trust me.

    Your part of this Crazy crowd no need to apologize but very stand up none the less. You provide great comments and contribution which is why this forum exists. The fact that you reached out is not only stand up but shows you care. Know that Everyone makes mistakes, life gets in the way, and S$#@ happens at times. Give them the chance to make it right and my bet is you will meet some really incredible people along the way. The good and bad of the internet and forum is calling someone out is Forever immortalized and permanent which is difficult if not impossible to overcome. In those cases many simply just give up trying or caring which is rough for a limited resource hobby like this. I am glad I got to meet the Other Tim and I look forward to seeing your pinball journey shared.

    No worries. I’ve apologized before for drunk rants that really make no sense. Most of us have been there and done that. Play on!

    Who cares what a bunch of pinball douchebags think of you!

    I'm hard to please and opinionated too. If people are offended by that it's always nice to have a reminder that life is full of little disappointments

    #12 6 months ago

    We live in a day and age of victimhood, political correctness which ultimately leads to censorship. Don't fall into the trap.

    #13 6 months ago

    Someone apologizing for their behavior, what the hell’s happening to Pinside! I’m sure if you bought us all a new pinball machine we could find it in our hearts to forgive you.

    #14 6 months ago

    if every one apologised for there behaviour on here you would need a new sub forum!

    Is that any different then half the people here? I can honestly say a few people here do get under my skin from time to time because they just keep regurgitating their negativeness statement after statement. But I would still help them out in a heartbeat if I could.

    Quoted from arcademojo:

    still help them out in a heartbeat

    This... this is what I am used to... but usually its face to face and with a handshake. Or the begrudging sly semi smirk of “Effing Nubie” but then they help out all the same. I was never afraid of nubies and as amatter of fact remember when I was one 30 years ago. I am glad the old farts back then helped me.

    From the stand point of helping both the seller and the buyer out, can I offer this? Why not one of you reach out (PM) to the other and offer a sorry I was an anxious buyer, or I was a distracted seller, come to an agreement and make the deal? He had what you wanted, and now he has time to send it. When faced with situations like this I try and get both parties at least talking again.

    What possessed you to even begin this thread

    Bublehead
    Someone making sense around here. I could hang out with this guy! My kinda people.

    #21 6 months ago

    And by around here, I mean pinside in general. People in this thread seem reasonable.

    #22 6 months ago

    Can you tell I'm a middle child?

    #23 6 months ago

    Humble and Brave of you, Tim.....but for almost all, not needed.

    No worries....you are at the head of the class in my book, and happy to help!

    Enjoy your Pins!

    I haven't seen any of your posts (until now), but wouldn't worry about apologizing in a thread.....if there were some individuals, PM works great....otherwise, no biggie...we all get thrashed time to time on here......

    #27 6 months ago

    This is an apology looking for an offense.

    #28 6 months ago

    Are we now beating a dead horse?

    #29 6 months ago

    I think there was a asking for forgiveness thread already on here. Go there my son.

    I bought my first machine here after sending a drunk PM. Trust your reptile brain

    #33 6 months ago

    Since the OP will no longer post offensive comments I will step up to carry the torch
