    Quoted from Gatecrasher:

    What is the real purpose of this "verification"

    Stop spammers, scammers and trolls.

    Am I "verified"?

    Apparently you are

    Quoted from jwilson:

    Stop spammers, scammers and trolls.

    Did I unknowingly surrender some personal information or something?

    How does it work?

    How did I get "verified"?

    #254 3 years ago

    Back to my original question, which forums and subforums are open to unverified users? I suppose I could just try the ones I want to, but I was curious if the definitive list has been posted. I know the Market and Manufacturers forums are off-limits to me. Any others?

    Is there a "newbie introduction" or "member introduction" area on this site? That may be a good start for me, as I can post what I am hoping to learn about the pinball and pin collecting hobby and those who are inclined to read and give tips can do so. I don't see one on a quick perusal, but let me know if there is such a subforum. Thanks!

    "All Pinball" is probably the most appropriate place in the forums but your profile has an area for "your story" that is an even better match. It just won't get seen by as many people and won't generate many replies.

    P.S. the guys from the Broken Token podcast are from Kentucky. If they are local to you they could help connect you to your local scene.

    Likely from 4 years on Pinside not acting like a spammer, scammer or troll.

    Thanks for the reply! Not sure where in the state Broken Token is hailing from, but I think I did see some of them at the Louisville Arcade Expo. I live in the Cincinnati metro area, for what it's worth, so the Cincy community may be more appropriate for me.

    Where's the manual?

    This thread you found.... try reading the start of it

    #261 3 years ago

    robin The Pinside FAQ doesn't mention verification. Might be helpful to add something about it.

    I did read the beginning of the thread but it didn't really answer the questions.

    Quoted from Gatecrasher:

    What is the real purpose of this "verification" and who is this guy from the Netherlands who is asking for our personal information?
    How can you tell if someone is "verified"? I've been on here for several years now and the hundreds of people on here who have purchased parts from me know who I am.
    Am I "verified"?

    If you've been here for a few years and still haven't donated to Pinside you're a cheap ass and Robin should've already canned you from the site.

    Quoted from yonizzell:

    If you've been here for a few years and still haven't donated to Pinside you're a cheap ass and Robin should've already canned you from the site.

    So because you've donated some money (and I bet it ain't a whole lot) to the forum, that gives you the privilege (and from your arrogance apparently you feel is your God-given right) to verbally-abuse others on the forum?

    I'll tell you one thing, if donating money to this forum gives someone the right to act like a total asshole I think I'll keep my money.

    I think you have proven the point that this "verification" program hasn't worked if the intention was to eliminate "Trolls" because you are sure acting like one.

    Troll Definition: A forum 'troll' is an abusive or obnoxious person who purposely seeks to get a rise out of others and does not abide by etiquette or the rules of common courtesy. Trolls consider themselves superior to others and purposely sow ill will between other forum members. The only way to deal with a forum troll is to ignore them, or take away their ability to post online.

    I'm through with this thread. Sorry I even stumbled across it.

    You should change your name to PurgeBait.

    Likewise, donating doesn't keep you safe from being shitcanned by the mods.

    Donating happens to be one way to get verified.

    So are you saying the founder of Jersey Jack Pinball is a "cheap ass" and Robin should have canned him from the site?

    Maybe he is just being frugal.

    There is no need to shame anyone for not donating. It's an individual choice.

    Your profile says that you were verified using a paypal account. The mechanisms in place simply check for a valid account in good standing. This is enough to prove that you are "real".

    #270 3 years ago

    Can mods verify me? Thanks.

    #271 3 years ago

    Why is there no "cancel" button for when you choose to verify by other member? Now it is just sitting there waiting for them to verify my account when I can try someone else? I have been a member for a long time, stepped away from the hobby for a while and now I would like to post as normal.
