    Quoted from jp1985:

    I would like to see a secondary list for new releases that gets merged into the primary list after a 5 year wait.

    great idea, but maybe less of a wait?

    2 years?

    It also depends on if we are looking at this as a "Hall of Fame" or a "Best 100 Machines" list.

    Maybe Hall of Fame could be ALL machines, across all platforms (EM/early SS/DMD/modern)? And hall of fame machines must be released at least 5 years ago.

    Top 100 can be more volatile and include new releases....but maybe some kind of mathematical formula which makes up for the fact that the older machines have so many more ratings?

    Quoted from Mardi-Gras-Man:

    Very good question.
    I would suggest to split up the "Top 100" not only between SS and EM but also between DMD plus maybe Electronics from 1985 to 1990 AND ALSO to create another list for Electronics before 1990 or 1985.
    The DMD machines should have at least 50 ratings instead of 15 before they get into the list.
    15 votes for the "older" machines should be OK.
    The EM-List requires only 5 votings which seems a bit funny but on the other hand there are very few ratings anyway so it's difficult.

    Good points. How about different categories, so we compare apples to apples?

    I'm no expert, but I'm thinking:

    1. EM (is wood rail worth mentioning? I have no idea)
    2. Early SS (1977-1985)
    3. Late SS (sys 11 etc) 1986-1990
    4. DMD (1991-1999)
    5. Early Modern (2000-2012) - up until WoZ
    6. Contemporary Modern (2013-present)

    Quoted from wolfemaaan:

    Pinside should adopt your sheet as the official top pins list. Those actually look legit

    I agree, that looks fantastic!
