Here I go from my phone and a fat finger....
To be honest, I'm not particularly worried about 100% correct grammar and spelling etc. If I can get the point of someone's post I'm happy to move on. I make mistakes all too often....I generally try and edit any typo's if possible, but respect we are all from different backgrounds and countries and languages. Gray color is supposed to be grey colour too!
I have alot of things that I loathe in the hobby with the main one being narcissism and greed. Especially from retailers and resellers, suppliers, podcasters, competition people and a few others. It's all tripe in my book and thankfully we have the ignore and drain features on pinside!
Also resellers posing as independent and non biased reviewers, come on really!? And the brand agenda people, quite a few here.
I hate the term Australian delivered when people sell games here. I've seen so many examples of machines now, and honestly it means nothing. Each machine is different and condition is irrelevant to where it was delivered first.
I hate how some people group us Aussies as all the same, we have some complete deadshits here like everywhere else on the planet, but also some fantastic people. I actually feel embarrassed the way some Aussies carry on in here, so yeah sorry for that! Suggest the ignore feature - works for me!
I really don't like the fact we are metric and pinball is in the main imperial. Have to double up all my tools!
I'm hoping we get more and more manufacturers and home brewers and it seems to be going that way. Great for the hobby. I love tinkering and modifying and seeing ideas come to life, it's so rewarding. I love my custom games and I love the fact I have met some great friends and fellow pinball people over the years and people who have helped me.
Here's to a great 2023.
