    Quoted from robin:

    How about this? I could change the rollover to show both games?

    Oh, I didn't realize you had that option -- were doing that with other games?

    People won't die if they have to spell out Waterworld once a year. Whirlwind on the other hand, is a frequently discussed game. To be honest, of the 30+ pinball people I've met in the last 2 years, I've never heard anyone discuss Waterworld in person either.

    I have just added the option to have multiple listings for an abbreviation (with the last site update). If you have suggestions, now that this is possible, please mention it in this thread and I will add them. I think for building the feature I only tested (and added) WW for Whirlwind and Waterworld. There must be more games sharing an abbreviation.

    ++Pinball Terminology++

    This one seems to be popping up more and more often:

    HEP - High End Pins, as referred mostly to restorations, not titles themselves.
    HEP MM is not what it sounds to be overall in 99.99% of all cases.
    It is being EXTREMELY abused, because a lot of collectors believe "shopping and waxing" constitutes HEP.

    It does not.

    HEP originally was designated for machine that had games using NOS playfields / backglasses installed, complete cabinet overhauls with either new decals, silk screening, or stencils, every single metal part being tumble polished, under and on top of the playfield, board component replacement (bridge rectifiers and capacitors) even if there are no problems, along with rewiring and connectors if required.
    This takes HUNDREDS of hours to do, not 100 hours or less.
    Only a few companies and individuals do this (VERY FEW NOW), and the costs reflect the work, as the machine is essentially restored to factory condition NIB.
