    Quoted from SKILL_SHOT:

    just seen the PAGG'13 review in pinball news theres a picture of Pinwillie and I loading EBP truck, not sure what the question under it means? that truck didn't fill itself.

    I wondered the same thing
    Does U- Haul even have vans this big with a lift gate ?

    I did snap one shot of the van after loading

    Quoted from practicalsteve:

    I know I created a separate thread about this, but I am going to promote it here as well. My friend made a short video a while back of me and my pins and now it looks like its going to be on TV! Granted its a on a really small cable network called Pivot, but it has a fan base and people can buy it on itunes and Amazon. Its a show based on a website called hitrecord that was started by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. They are doing a games episode and I am in the trailer. I am leaving links to the trailer and full video my friend made below. I have no idea how much footage they will use in the actual episode, but its still pretty exciting.
    Trailer (only 30 seconds long)
    Full video (four minutes long)

    very cool !!! thanks for sharing

    I'm curious why you leave your sold games on the marketplace board. It says right on the listing...
    "This item was placed over 5 weeks ago. If you are the owner of this item and it is no longer relevant than please remove it using the delete function below to avoid dissapointment."
    I realize the listing dates and sold dates are different. Is it still relevant? why not remove the item after its sold? just curious?

    Quoted from scasey:

    I was asked by some fellow pinsiders to keep them there for sales data. If it is no longer needed, I will delete them.

    Quoted from scasey:

    Done, the sold machine ads have been deleted.

    Thank you for the explanation and removing the sold ads.
