    Quoted from too-many-pins:

    At this point I don't give a rats ass who buys them.

    See what you guys did? You turned a seemingly nice, helpful individual (albeit some over-posting), into a fatigued crazy man that doesn't "give a rats ass" anymore, and rightfully so.

    Was that the mission all along here, to break him? Or was it "I gotta get my hands on some of these machines! I might be able to make some money here!"

    Sorry, I've dealt with a few people that seemed all nice when wanting something I was selling (or knew of a deal), only to find out later they were only being nice for their own financial gain. Yeah I know, happens all the time, but I remember them.

    Op, good luck with your endeavor and for god's sake, get some rest! You shouldn't have to live in a TZ episode, although you might be already!

    Quoted from too-many-pins:

    Machines are now posted on our local Craig's List as well as here on Pinside. No DRAMA - no BS - just over 100 machines to sell out of a small space in a few weeks. ALL the drama was caused by a few A-holes not taking time to read my original post and help me come up with some kind of logical way of selling off a warehouse find as well as most of out collection. With or without the Pinside community I will get 100+ machines sold this Winter & early Spring.
    I am done posting about this - I put a post up this morning offering Pinsiders that live in the area a chance to stop by earlier on Thursday while we are finishing up getting ready to post final descriptions & prices at 7 PM Thursday. My Holiday guest are here until tomorrow around 9AM after that it will be full speed ahead to get machines sold as quickly as possible.
    At this point I don't give a rats ass who buys them. So no limit on number of machines or anything else - just down and dirty get them gone as quickly as possible so I can pick up the next load.

    Can you please link the ad... I can't seem to find it. Thank you

    I think op's original thought was that he would alert pinside that a large sale was coming up soon so people could get money ready so that when the sale date came up people would be ready. But that's just my opinion.

    There should be a pinside boycott of any of these so called "pinball machines for sale". I know it won't happen will all of the hoarders in the hobby!

    Quoted from kpg:

    Since this is Pinside, I'm assuming this guy is going to be very busy taking pictures of shooter lanes.

    Now, THAT'S funny!!! I have had this thought in the back of my head for years . . . how obsessed some people are with the condition of the shooter lane.

    Your little sentence spoke volumes!!!

    Watching this trainwreck unfold has been enlightening. Yes, there are some grumpy people on here that fanned the flames. But on the other hand the OP typing away volumes of replies without any actual useful information contained in any of them was also a contributory cause to what we are witnessing here. I type fast and it would have taken me hours if not days to keep responding to posts in the manner he has.

    For future reference to anyone considering liquidating your collection seeking input. A simple one sentence post saying: 1) I have # pins I'm going to sell 2) Give me your suggestions about how you think I should do this 3) I'll announce a decision Jan X with first list of games posted and pictures provided with prices. That's it. No OP replies. No drama. Jan X comes around and the pins are posted for sale and the rules for buying given along with prices.

    Even if you didn't know any of the actors personally, you could have predicted the outcome a mile away: OP finally goes f* it (after ruining their own life typing hours of replies), first with cash at my doorstep its theirs ! (how is this any different than craigslist anyway ... oh wait it isn't) Pinside grumps get fully validated in their opinion this was just free advertising (which honestly its essentially turned into even if unintended).

    None of this had to happen. Look at what Lloyd does: 1) post on Facebook page at reasonable prices but uncertain condition 2) first to say I'll take it gets it 3) Paypal sent to confirm purchase. No drama.

    I feel for the OP, but there is blame to go all around on this. I won't be buying any because I'm not just going to book a truck and drive a few hundred miles hoping that there is something I want. But I still wish the OP good luck in getting the pins sold off in an orderly manner.

    OMG, there's another thread listing 14 sad sack pins with no prices or pics.
    Over marketing here just a little.
    Clever, think I'll start the same for my winter project thread.

    I think the op just wanted to brag about his big find. I'm sure many of us dream of finding a big warehouse full of games. Congratulations and good luck.
