I'm looking for a set of boards for a Bally 6803 game. Anyone got a set, or maybe a project game with boards in it?
Quoted from the96stang:
Everyone here checks craigslist just as religiously as this thread. Im sure that I will reach about 90 percent of the population that reads the thread.
Just to play devil's advocate here. What's to prevent another person from linking to these craiglist ads? There are several threads for Craigslist finds, and those doesn't have to pay a fee.
Quoted from ForceFlow:
Just someone's integrity, I imagine.
How would posting someone else's Craigslist ad on this or any thread have something to do with integrity? If someone other than myself, friend or not, posts an ad on Craigslist why couldn't one post it here?
If someone decides they want to sell a game outside of pinside to not pay a fee that is their right. Just because they have a pinside account doesn't mean they have to post it on pinside. So then why would knowing the person affect whether a 3rd party such as myself links to the Craigslist ad? Pecos or one of the Craigslist guys will find and post it anyway so what's the difference?
I donate to pinside monthly and have for a while. I don't sell games, I buy them. Policies like this drive sellers away, Stang being one of the big sellers. So him leaving this site becomes less of a resource for me and other buyers. I'm not worried about not seeing Stang's games I can text him and see what he has. The thing is that takes Pinside out of the loop, and that is a bad thing for Pinside.
Stang is the type of guy who shows up with a truckload of 5-6 games in various condition. He posts a quick blurb here letting people know what he has, usually while they are still in the truck. Having to take detailed pictures of all the games when several are going to be beat up projects is counter productive to how they are being sold. A quick mystery project game off the truck, $200. A game that has been photographed and gone through suddenly is now is $500. This also distorts the estimated price Pinside places on games. If a project game gets passed around as they do, just look back in this thread. Then you end up with multiple under-priced sales. This drives down the average price on this game artificially.
I agree if your going to post 12 photos of a $2,000+ game you should use a marketplace ad, your going to get better exposure. But for the unknown raw project games, sometimes a marketplace ad is overkill. I get needing to monetize the site, but I think the regional threads help for some things. There needs to be a price point of Pinside sponsorship where people can donate a set value and not have to pay any further fees, or have local regional player just sponsor this thread so it can be back to what it was.
Anyone got a 15000uf cap for a Williams System 6 Power Board within a reasonable driving distance of western mass? I'm trying to get some games tuned up for a get together and the power board on my Flash needs a new cap, it's just resetting constantly. (Swapped in PSU works great)
