Anybody seen this kid? I hope his health is OK...

#5 1 year ago

May 15th was the last day he logged in. There was a photo of him at Pinfest 2017.

Yeah, he's okay.
I loaned him a Star Jet head so he had exact dimensions to construct one for his machine
and he e-mailed me last month saying he was starting on the project. He's still heavily into
pins, but not so much into forums (any longer)..

Any update on his age?

I didn't see him there, and I was there all weekend. He is better off staying off the keyboard and wrenching on some of his games.

Presumably in some railyard, washing off the tar and feathers.

Todd Tuckeys video from Pinfest shows Steven talking to Todd, (after the Hercules), Steven is at the Rocket.

Too many assholes on this forum ran him out of here, apparently. He's barely the age of majority, can't even drink yet, and makes some social errors common among people of his age group. But people around here couldn't just cut him some slack and accept his imperfections...because, of course, everybody here is perfect. Buncha dicks.

#14 1 year ago

Seems there is an Otaku on RGP as well. Last post, this thread--

+1000 thumbs up

#16 1 year ago

The internet police came down on him pretty hard in a couple threads, not surprised if he got burned out. It does tend to get... intense sometimes.

#17 1 year ago

that's too bad, I love the kids enthusiasm

#18 1 year ago

wow, did corn really flood?

#19 1 year ago

There were people asking legit questions. They really didn't get answered.

Ya thank God for drinking or else you probably would run out of here too

Work blocked RPG. I was reading the breakdown thread & was left hanging. Could you please elaborate? PM if you want. Thanks!

Everybody catches shit here. Everybody gets moderated here. Nobody gets a pass on their "imperfections."

He doesn't want to be here, we should all respect it. And welcome him back like a buncha dicks when he's ready.

What show was I at? I don't recall a "Hercules" or a "Rocket". "Hercules" is pretty tough to miss! Did Todd post his show video already?

#24 1 year ago

This was Allentown - they had a Herc and it was working (mostly) all show!

And this is why all our kids are pussies these days...when I was a kid we were not allowed to "hang with the older people"...saying he's not old enough to drink...pfff...who here waiting till there 21st B-day to drink...???!!!...I'm with Levi on this one...I got a buddy who is still cutting his "kid"(20 yrs old)slack...he's a grandpa...kid still lives home job after job after job...if your man enough to buy/sell,fix and drag 50 pins out of a wet basement...your man enough to take a little flack on a pinball forum.... ................Joey

I don't think boob is talking about a "little flack"....he means when people are nasty complete assholes...

What he said. I take flack. Quite a bit of ball-busting. I'm talking about the gang tackle that really crosses the bullying line in many cases. I'm not going to say that a little bullying doesn't toughen you up, but when you're getting creamed by a bunch of people who have never met you, don't know anything about you, yet see fit to judge you?...well...in my humble opinion, those people are just assholes and nobody needs to deal with that.

The EM sub forum stays mostly in the helping others mode. It is inclusive of people's different focus, from leaving games as is, to wanting restored specimens and to talk about it with others.

They also like their suppliers to provide cheap products and have much experience in different commercial payment methods like a check sometimes is nice. If we can get some free parts from each other that's even better. This is how it rolls here. Not much drama, quiet and civil on the most part.

Now what they don't like is being called assholes by anybody, told that their long term suppliers are old, behind the times and should like only games restored a certain way. If you want respect not flack in this sub forum don't be rude to other posters, call other posters names even if you are not specific and tell other posters what to think, as that's for other sub forums and no interest to most here.

Just my humble opinion.

IMO he brought a lot of that on himself and people here were giving their honest opinions of what he was doing. If he wants to act like he's just as smart as all the old timers on this site then why should he get treated differently? I hope eventually he does come back, maybe he'll be a little more grown up.

Agreed. But the guy tries to start a repair thread and people were just nasty about it. No need for that. This is a family forum, man!

Maybe he found a girl friend and has better things to do than pinball

He also pissed off some knowledgeable posters with his cockiness and they took a hiatus for that exact reason. That didn't help his popularity. Then the Go fund me crap just doesn't fly for some. I'm hoping he finds whatever he's looking for in life.

Don't forget he pissed off Steve at PBR right off the bat on his first order and is no longer allowed to order parts from him.

I think some time off from forums is a good thing for him right now until he learns some common courtesy and respect towards others in general.

Speaking of time off, where's boilerman?

#35 1 year ago

All valid points. I guess I'm just a little more forgiving...but then I deal with children for a living, so being here sometimes isn't much different.

#36 1 year ago

I dunno, think about it. If people have lived long enough and experienced enough of the diversity of folks, I would think the young man would mostly get a pass. Read all of his earlier posts (if you can, or want), and you'll maybe get a different perspective.

#37 1 year ago

I tapped out when he said that he was "unable to work", yet he was fit enough to move pinball machines around.

Also, asking for donations for his basement repair while continuing to purchase pins seemed pretty sketch.

To me, he just seemed a bit entitled, not to mention extremely disrespectful to longtime pinball hobbyists.

#38 1 year ago

Actual question: wasn't he autistic?

Couldn't of said it any better!

I do want to make this observation, though: Judging by people's reactions to him, Otaku is a pretty polarizing guy. But what I'm most impressed about is that even though people have strong views about him one way or the other, this thread has remained completely civilized.

Go figure.

Maybe because he isn't posting in it? Just a thought. People must love his drama either way since so many are concerned as to his whereabouts.

I'm not sure that "so many" are concerned. The OP obviously is but most of the other postings just seem to be commenting.

Three simple words make a world of difference when about to diss or comment on someone.

Focus. On. Yourself.

Does anything this guy says or does impact your lives?

Actually, yes. I lent him my Escalera to help him clear his waterlogged basement. So...I could have been out 2 grand. He was a standup guy...returned it on time in perfect condition and with a shit ton of gratitude. He might be a social misfit, but he's a good guy in my book. (And I think people focusing on themselves all the time are one of the problems in this forum. It's a good thing to focus on others every now and then!)

#45 1 year ago

as much as I didn't like some of his comments and I didn't think the donation deal was something he should have done the kid has a love for pinball and obviously knows his way around an EM machine which is impressive in itself.

#46 1 year ago

I gave him a donation. The guys who have nothing better to do but criticize and judge others should focus on themselves. What the fuck do they care if someone asks for donations or whatever? Just move along and shut the fuck up.

I misunderstood what you meant. Apologies...

he pissed off Steve at PBR

And started a thread here about it.

End of story.

I just had a hard time reading 2000 word paragraphs myself.

So? Are you Steve? (Don't honestly know if you are) Why would you care if you weren't Steve?

No, I am not Steve. But Steve is the most valuable resource this hobby has, and has been for decades. That's why I care.
