    Hi Everyone,

    The past few years I've put together a site to support links to games that are in Pinburgh Banks, and I'm working on a project to make it more generic across any event. One of the links that I add in is Pinside. I've done it manually for a number of years now, but this year I'm trying to take steps to better automate things.

    I saw in another thread mention of an undocumented API, and I am wondering if there's an API Feed that provides basic information on the machines. Specifically, the name, Pinside ID, IPDB ID (where known), OPDB ID (if that's something Pinside is using) and url slug for the game so that I can make a link back to Pinside.

    Link to another API Discussion: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/is-there-an-api-call-for-the-top-n-pinballs-

    It's an API that I wouldn't be hitting more than once a month, since new machines don't come about all that often. I dropped robin a PM a few weeks ago, but haven't heard back.

    Thank you in advance!
