    Hey all, I am looking at doing an article for those new to pinball - someone that is brand new, looking at getting into the pinball hobby, or someone looking at buying their first pinball machine.

    I wrote up this article a year or two ago (https://thisweekinpinball.com/new-to-pinball/), but I've been looking at doing a new article like this for a while and including more resource links and video links. The Canadian Arcade just did a pinball 101 video, and Mike Vinikour from Stern was on a panel recently (and on the Broken Token podcast) talking about the start button location, etc, and got me thinking again.

    A few good resources off the top of my head would be Vid's Guides, Pinside in general, find a local collector to help you learn the ins and outs, Pinwiki, etc...

    Any resources or videos or anything you recommend or you can share here would be helpful! Also, if you're new to pinball and have things you want to learn or see in this type of article or resources you'd like to see, share here as well or PM me!

    Thank for any input/help.
