Word Up Fellow Tronites! Been a while since I've been on here and I hear Flank is taking some shit from the higher ups, so I feel now that the CAVS are champs and I finally have some free time, I am making my return!! Miss being on this thread you guys/gals are the best~!

Ha, let's keep that in the NDP

Congrats on your Cavs!

Bad news for Flank: I bought a Tron.

You might see me in this thread from time to time. Sorry to buzzkill your night.

(But this does mean that I finally agree with you about the machine, and I think I've maybe not been too kind to it in the past. See? Even I can admit my mistakes!)

I don't know ( or care) about any of that....just know this IS the best thread on Pinside , and Flank a big part of that...

Glad you bought a TRON ....am sure you will love it..that's basically all there is here ( along w booze, mods, and ALOT of other cool Troniacs)

Oh brother, are you going to do another lame ass restore on this game?

Just kidding, you know I gotta rib you for joining the club, even if you did so reluctantly. By the way, the initiation into this club is to tattoo "Tron" on your neck, forehead or lower middle back. Pics to prove it.

Glad your here bro!

Pinside is getting worse by the day. Throwing Flank out whom is a pillar of pinside, is absolutely ridiculous. Some douchy PS member whom adds nothing to the site, whined and bitched and basically narced out Flank for absolutely no good reason. TO that Douchebag, grow the FUCK up and to the MODS you better fix this ASAP. Ugh....We have some Mods that are friends in this club pull some strings Tiger!

Flank hates me for some reason, but I agree with this. Must've been something he did off forum.

I don't know everything (but enough) about this incident.....while unfortunate, I believe that Flank was "egged on" into the situation, and probably was shocked when he was the one that got the ban.....hence the ill responses through the mod chain.

PM system failed in this instance, and I just hope Flank returns where he belongs (with us) in due time.

Many find him an asset to our community......mark

#6180 3 years ago

We won't comment on the specifics of Centerflank's situation other than it involved lots of harassment, threats, and vulgar attacks against other members.

Suffice to say, Centerflank was given plenty of leeway and chances to get back on track and follow the site rules prior to his account freeze. Freezing his account was by no means taken lightly, and was an unfortunate result of his behavior and his behavior alone.

If you wish to discuss the situation further, please open a moderator feedback thread. This is not the place to discuss an individual member's status.

#6181 3 years ago

will this thread get sent to the basement now, or deleted?

Thinking of doing one last Flynn's sign run. Send me a PM if you're interested.

you should do a RIP Centerflank Flynn's sign version

#6184 3 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

I see no reason why either would be necessary as long as it continues like any other club thread.

#6185 3 years ago

ok guys & gals...

i'm not supposed to release this, but here's actual video/audio footage of what happened between Centerflank & the pinside mods.
i'll let you decide who is who. (sound on)

ps. based on the end of the actual/factual footage, Centerflank should probably become a mod as well

#6186 3 years ago

Wow, I didn't think those Flynn signs would ever come back. Everybody get one before he changes his mind.

#6187 3 years ago

I still love Tron more than lightening kitty, so this thread is still relevant

Flank isn't dead, he's just frozen, no need for a RIP sign, that's just terrible

You can actually script it a couple different ways ( even w the cat taking on 2 different personas , if that makes sense).

My favorite parts are " the pose", and when the mantis finally grabs him......just can't stop laughing every time I watch it....

I've seen it all in regards to this situation.

And its FACT that is all BS. This Pinsider or ones like him want to talk "radio edit" but don't have the pinballs to back it up.

Why are we promoting guys whom are keyboard tough then don't have the pinballs to back it up.

Flank is opinionated for sure. However his opinions are highly valued.

His backing of this community is highly valued

Its not like a random guy is coming in here spouting of BS like he knows what he is talking about.....oh wait that is almost every single Fing Thread on this Site over the last 2 years.

This is a Joke! FACT!

I am ashamed that guys whom put so much into this hobby and actually do stuff for the hobby are being single out b/c they aren't pussy and don't back down to Trolls.

Pinside let tons of nonsense, meaningless and useless members spew forth crap every day.

Price Police, Newbs acting like they know it all, constant TMZ quality gossip all talking and acting like they know WTF they are talking about? Run there mouths and start Threads and topics with No sources, No experience and no knowledge of what they speak of.

At least in the Cleveland, Erie, Buffalo and Pittsburgh Triangle this site has become just a running joke.

If you want to know who is who and what is what Pinside is no longer the place. 10% of Pinside is Legit and the powers that be seem to be promoting Ignorance and snuffing out Actual REAL Members of the Pinball community.

Go ahead keep your policy and watch this site rot out.

This totally reminds me of NASCAR. After Dale E. Died in 2000, NASCAR exploded, right time right place, 09/11, Afghanistan, Patriotism, shot NASCAR to heights it had never seen... however they had no idea how to handle the success and have fallen in to the gutter.

Pinside 5 years ago when I joined was the Elite of the Elite, Great threads, topics, Help and community. Now its turned into a steaming pile of "Radio Edit".

Look at all the top threads and forums its 1000x worse and meaningless Crap than any "Inflammatory" but completely TRUE statements, PM's, TOPICS or comments Flank ever made.

I am glad PS rather have 1000's idiots spewing what they hear back and forth like an Echo chamber, than 1 Actual top 1% Pinsider.

see where it gets you

p.s. its Quality not quantity.

Are you proud of something you did?

If you really feel Flank "Hates you" why not just make your own Tron club for people that think and act like you. maybe Clark Kent would prefer to Mod that thread over this one. I think Tiger did a good job, we police ourselves and I am not happy outsiders have come in and ruined a good thing.

Does that kind of thing turn you on?

Can we block Moderators? It just pisses me off looking at that stupid Clark Kent avatar. Why do you just let Tigerlaw moderate this thread?

Personal Attack! FF you have 30 shitty games are you purposely going after the worst games available to go with the worst avatar of all time? Plus have you never heard mixing Star Wars and Superman may cause cancer?

The dude is rock'in (2)
8-Way Power Splitter Boards for his TRON mods... mad respect for that!

#6198 3 years ago

Well it is what it is, it is an open forum with all to reply. So this is no closed club where you can do what you want, use Whatsapp for that. I think the rules are clear and ok. There are shitty threads, there are gems, there is help and advice when asked. Most of the treads do seem to go off topic a lot. The community is big so there will be al kinds of people hanging around, good and bad, ones you like ones you dislike, pro's and newbies. As long as we go around fine with each other and show respect you will be fine. You can discuss and disagree, you can have an opinion. As a newbie myself in the scene, I had a lot of great answers that showed me the right way. Some treads you feel welcome, some not....just my opinion.

BTW, I hope Centerflank will come back soon, as he is a Tron Fan and will help you out anytime! Great value for the community.

#6199 3 years ago

Bring back Flank!

1. What the hell are you blathering on about? I had nothing to do with him being frozen, so stop talking out your ass. And I never even did anything to Flank to warrant his treatment of me in the first place. It's his issue and I'm fine with that.

2. I'm not an "outsider", whatever that means. This is Pinside - everybody is welcome everywhere as long as they follow the forum rules.

3. And stop attacking ForceFlow or any other moderators - first you address me, then you address him. It's confusing. Decide who you want to throw your hissy fit at first before you spout off with this garbage.

This is a perfect place to put the RobT crybaby image, but it's not worth the time to find it.
