Hi,

I'm not exactly new here, but i've been using this site to check locations to play pinball, and also adding some that i've found.

I found a new machine 2 days ago, and as i was adding it, i wasn't allowed because i'm not a "verified member".

Does this make any sense? Wouldn't it be good for the map to reach critical mass and have more sites added? Why are there barriers when i want to contribute to the community and add information and photos to the pinball map?

Thanks

The problem is (was) that we had people (or automated bots?) edit locations to add spam links and other crap to them. I would then have to go in remove the spam or sometimes even pull all those entries back from backups.

The verification requirement avoids such abuse.

In your case, given you have been here for a while and have updated locations legitimately, I will verify you.
