    Quoted from Cornelius:

    Well we just made another post about it, so...

    Last one. I promise.

    #652 2 years ago

    I have to find a little kid to take me to Chuck E Cheese. Someone told me an adult can't go in without a kid.

    We never had a Chuck E's close. Just a Mr. Gatti's but the don't have a robot band.

    Quoted from dmbjunky:

    There's been a couple table tops with the characters on them and cool signs show up on ebay this past year. I really had to hold myself back to buy them. They were also pretty close which made it tough.

    Nice! I gotta be careful about adding things to collect these days...pretty soon either my house or my other half is going to burst at the seems with my collecting!

    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Yet another who just cant leave a thread alone...AGAIN, nobody said they don't like debate or banter....but...that one was specifically asked to be left to only positive vibes, repeatedly; by the OP of it and by other pinside members trying to enjoy it. Thats all there is to it. Not even personal, just wasn't a bash or debate thread... Don't need a total safeplace community here, but it certainly seems like a decent human thing to do when an OP spells out what his intent of his thread is and repeatedly asks for it.

    Eh, if OP was making a big deal about it I'd just leave, but I miss the days when you could rip on a game, and fans would rip back with why the game DIDN'T suck, instead of getting all defensive. I miss Aron Boag

    Had an adult friend go to chuck e for his birthday for pizza and alcohol with no kids. He didn't have a problem, but that was a few years back and maybe he just happen to get in. I forget what they serve, but thought it wad like beer and wine or something. Lol

    I really am done on the topic. Just wanted to mention he did make comments in his thread several times. That was the point. But I'm going to follow Dmbjunkys lead on here and move on to better topics..

    have a fun safe friday night all.

    Chuck e does have beer. But also a ton of parent fights...ran down that youtube rabbit hole a couple years ago.

    Hall no I don't think it's the beer...just crazy parents...mostly in poor places.
    Still is a chuck e cheese near me and I've always wanted to go check it out but never have. Had many a b day party there as a kid and loved it. Although we had a competitor place around here Captain Andys that was better

    Quoted from SHOOTTHEPYRAMID:

    one day we went to Chuck E. Cheese and I was scared to fuck by their band

    Yeah man, that creepy bear with the goofy sleepy grin, I'd be afraid to fuck with him leering over me too...

    Yeah their big shtick was baskets of popcorn given out and you could throw it on the floor and shit...Pretty exciting as a kid

    Anywhere a kid is told go ahead and throw their food on the floor is bound to be a hit!

    Ya, cool pics...but ya, a bit...well...odd (hell, looking back, they all were/are!).

    I like the WB style frog with the top hat.

    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    I cant see anything for locations on anybody either...must have been taken off of main avatar splash. If I click on someone It is there, just not displayed by avatar on each post.

    This should now be fixed and locations should have returned as viewable for all.

    My wifes first boyfriend, did the original sculpts, for the Chuck R Cheese Characters.
    We have only the original moon sculpt for the show.
    Had it up in the kids rooms when they were young, but both kids were freaked out by the face at night.
    Its hiding in a bin under a game now, but I have some weird old memories from the 70s
    when it all came together.

    I remember the before times. Before the great purge. Before the wars and the fighting. I remember a time when you could get answers without being made to look like a fool. I remember a time when people weren't scared of the SkitB or the Papa Duke. Now is the time for us to rise up, slay the Duke and fear not the SkitB. Break the Dutch dam and relive the glory of the Bally Williams. Let us learn from our friends to the north. The RGPers. They did not heed the warning and now thier lands are dry.

    I was a huge fan of pinside back a few years ago. The support I received and the positive threads seemed plentiful. I take a peak nowadays, but this thread has me interested in coming back more.

    #670 2 years ago

    For better or worse, a lot of people do not have to ability to "let go" on a forum. I usually erase 4/5 of my posts. Sometimes, my clever retort is redundant and doesn't really contribute to the thread.

    There are innumerable examples of threads here where a well meaning person replies 10,15,25 times repeating the same arguement. There are others that go on a tangient and won't let it go. Yes, I can scroll past it. There are plenty of users that don't see it that way and just stop coming to Pinside.

    The reality seems to be that Pinside is massively successful as a forum with a huge membership. Robin and Martin will decide how it proceeds. Some of us will agree and some will not.

    #671 2 years ago

    I also think there may be some over reacting to the "great purge".

    Quoted from SHOOTTHEPYRAMID:

    I know!!! My dad always laughs when he tells the story of me being a little boy and my favorite thing on earth was showbiz and their animatronic band(I forget what they're called). And one day we went to Chuck E. Cheese and I was scared to fuck by their band and had to be dragged out crying in terror!!! I was two.

    Here you go....

    Lol...good video.

    I can't find it for a pic off hand, but I have an old 45 in a picture sleeve that is rockafire explosion. Lol.

    #681 2 years ago

    Idk the interest level, but I just started a new thread to discuss the old birthday pizza and games places more!

    Please, feel free to bring that discussion over to that thread. All welcome

    Yoy can even say you hate it

    #683 2 years ago

    I think this is great news.

    I collect both arcade and pin, so as a result I use both KLOV and Pinside for my repair questions and whatever needs/questions I have for the games I pick up. I've found it much easier to get friendly, intelligent direction consistently at KLOV than here. There's been a few times that the tiny KLOV pinball section was more constructive than here, which is unfortunate.

    The potential for this place is off the charts, looking forward to the next chapter.

    Maybe post this upcoming purge in The Big Lebowski Preorder thread, it's getting ugly in there- Donner Party meets Lord of the flies.

    #686 2 years ago

    I think it's funny that right after BudManPinFan posted the it's a trap meme everyone instantly quit posting in here.

    Talk about a thread killing post.

    I can't believe it took almost 700 posts for people to realize this might be possible. Hmm, starting negative stuff in a moderator thread about getting out of hand. Yup, seems like a bad decision. Just like last year. Notice on the first page of Robin's thread from last year that 2 accounts are Frozen and 1 is Blocked.

    Or Robin's reminder 3 years ago about being nice and the need to put the hammer down.

    #691 2 years ago

    I knew right away this thread was a tool for the mods to start compiling a list. Good idea too, a lot easier than sifting through the static of the others!

    I think everyone passed out. Give it a couple more hours.

    #697 2 years ago

    A lot of the nasty threads threads drift off point and by the time they dry up the majority of the posts are *not nice*, trolling or just drivel. Not to mention that some real news can pop up 2000 posts deep in one of those threads and fall under the radar because only a handful of people still read them. The really long threads get taken over by the "prolific posters" arguing and showing off with each other and anyone who will listen. Posting is cheap, requires no thought or breathalyzer for that matter. So maybe instead of kicking people out completely, those people could be given a short timeout followed by being throttled to say 20 posts a week? Another suggestion is to have live Pinside chat channels to help remove some of the stream of consciousness from the forums? One live chat for current events like Jpop, etc, one for EMs and one for tech support...

    #698 2 years ago

    I just noticed this topic and haven't read through 14 pages but I gotta say it seems to me like this is a trolling thread to begin with. Direct from the mods. Just ban people already, do we need the peanut gallery to chime in? Just do the deed.

    #699 2 years ago

    I am taking offense to almost every GDMF comment in the last two pages!!

    Can I get a mod over here already!!
