    Quoted from kermit24:

    "Minty fresh" and "LOADED!" the two I hate the most.

    I like to see "minty fresh" in an ad. It is a great tipoff that the seller is a bullshitter and you probably should not believe a lot of what they say as they are busy price pumping their pin or what else they are trying to unload.

    " I have seen them selling on Ebay for $X"

    Quoted from DanQverymuch:

    I would wager you have never seen an ad that says "replaced with custom apron cards or custom apron cards included" as that would be redundant and illogical. One or the other, sure.
    "replaced with custom apron cards" or "custom apron cards included"

    are u fuckin serious? that's what i meant but i guess ur the only one that didn't get it.
    u must been very popular in high school
    i nominate u for the commissioner of grammar police.

    Quoted from adol75:

    Asking to provide a reason to sell is what doesn't make sense in the first place ! Who cares why you sell it, what matters is what you sell and how much you sell it for.

    I disagree - sometimes people sell a game they bought as a project and it needs work etc. You may also be able to gauge urgency if you plan on trying to get a better deal.

    I like the straight up approach if a buyer asks after he hands over the cash "Is it a great game?"

    "No, it sucks and has terrible artwork and I'm glad it's going away. Hope you enjoy it"

    It's the same one I use as well. You think I held my tongue when selling GB the worst fucking thing I've ever owned (including STDs)?

    Quoted from yuriijos:

    I hear ya there. Didn’t you know that custom apron cards add at least $50 in value. Lol.

    Does it... Cos my elvira with a black eye must add at least 25 dollars in value then!!!!

    Quoted from Wickerman2:

    Probably just a fuse

    I have asked sellers why don't you just replace the fuse then?

    #159 4 days ago

    “Believe I’m the second owner, home use “

    WTF.......you think I’m a moron you tit!
    So you bought this not knowing the previous history and its potential home use and operated......yeah allllriggghttyyy then

    #160 4 days ago

    "Not working but lights up"
    "I am sure this would be an easy fix for someone who knows about these things"
    "Perfect for your Man Cave"
    "Fix it or keep it as a conversation piece. Really looks good in a Man Cave".
    " Only 1250 cash" (for a Darling, Honey, Jubilee, El Toro, etc that needs work.
    "Clean" (with a rats nest visible in the photo)

    This is a big one I see in UK funny enough:-
    “ I bought this 3 years ago for 7k off Joe Bloggs , selling for same amount. I’ve added some side blades at 100 quid”.
    Well whoopy fcuking doo.
    Thanks for your overwhelming generosity

    Quoted from RTS:

    Sometimes questions are asked not for a specifically correct answer, but for the response to determine if you might be dealing with a bullshitter.
    You'd be surprised how much information you can get from some sellers just by asking questions you consider dumb.

    I so agree with this. "Why you selling?" "Because I need some dental work". Then you see them bragging about their nib they just bought. Tells me the guys a bullshiter and most likely bullshitting about the condition of the machine.

    Over here, "Australian Delivered"
    Means jack in this day and age, can't stand it.

    #164 4 days ago

    Thought of another that bothers a lot of people including me.
    When someone from 2 or 3 states away list their game in your states for sale forum.
    This is usually the same guy that will spam every forum in 14 states.

    This is usually the same guy that will spam every forum in 14 states.

    When I was pin shopping on CL, I was doing the nationwide search. And I also drove the miles. So if some guy 5 states away wants to place something in my local CL, that makes it less work for me. I look at the ad, see something I might be interested in, then see the location and either make a deal or pass on by.

    A quotation includes everything within the quotation marks. Of course I got what you were saying. You were the one not getting something.

    Nice barely literate response. "u must been" asleep in high school.

    Your post was critical, expect some criticism back. Are you capable of posting without using F bombs?

    #167 3 days ago

    No need for grammar police here, let's go back to poo pooing sellers..

    I don't like when people say "shopped". It's too subjective when shopped could mean that all they did is change 4 rubbers and wipe down the main playfield.

    lol you think they wipe down the playfield. that is funny

    Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

    "HUO since..." has been trending lately

    "HUO since..." Is just another way of saying "not HUO".

    #170 2 days ago

    I’ve seen quite a few reasonably priced pins lately saying “Priced for a quick sale’”
    Then see the same listing with a changed asking price 3hrs later at a ridiculous price and then watch it sit for months.

    What did “Australian Delivered” used to mean? Haven’t heard that one before.

    #172 2 days ago
    Quoted from fosaisu:

    What did “Australian Delivered” used to mean? Haven’t heard that one before.

    Just meant it came to Australia straight from the factory. I’ve never understood it either. They all came from the same place originally.

    Quoted from Breger1:

    ”I don’t really know if I want to do this”, “this hurts me to do”, or “it pains me to do”, etc. why do people have to justify a sale?

    Well I don't use these words exactly, and I'm never looking for a higher payday but I often say just to let the dickheaded low ballers know not to waste my time something along the lines of " I really don't want sell, I hope u don't buy it and I'm fine with keeping it" in other words "Go fuck urself"

    #174 2 days ago

    "For that price I will just destroy it."

    Not as bad as buying statements such as “Cash in hand” please stop! it’s insulting to a seller as if you are desperate and broke. I never return messages to these type of amateurs when I sell something.

    I'm going to respectfully disagree with this one as I've used it. Not intending your interpretation though. For me it means, I have the cash ready, quick and easy sale. I don't have to quickly sell a game, use half Paypal, Venmo, whatever. Borrow a few bucks that will only take a day, trade you a garbage game that nobody wants to make up the difference, or any of the hundreds of excuses I've heard why they don't have all of the cash.

    I agree with others, my most hated is probably home use only, since xx date.

    #177 2 days ago

    Only XX plays since 2008, complete with leaky batteries to validate the play count.

    Checking out pins for sale online and having to scroll through 90%+ repetitious adds that say:

    ...Please Contact,
    ...Please Contact,
    ...Please Contact,

    All usually from the same NIB outlet and many ads repeated for the same game!

    How about just 1 add! Lookin at you Kijiji advertisers!

    Sure, but "cash in hand" is almost always is predicated by a ridiculous low ball offer. "Cash in hand" "Cash on the glass"...they're all stupid. Why not say "Cash in wallet"? Do I have to put the cash on the GLASS? Can I put it on the table next to the glass? Or in your hand?

    What else do you pay for something with? Cash plus carefully picked ears of corn?

    #181 2 days ago

    Geez, about the only ad anyone could place so someone won't get their panties in a wad is:

    XYZ pinball for sale.

    $xxx.xx

    Call xxx-xxxx

    And then you will call and start asking questions like:

    How long have you had it?

    Will you finance?

    What's wrong with it?

    Does everything work?

    Yada yada yada

    Quoted from ryanbrooks:

    I put “no lowball offers or I’ll donkey punch your wife” in an ad on a 2nd amendment group and got suspended. They support the 2nd but not the first?

    Best post of the week!

    Australian Delivered means 50hz 240v Australian Coin Door and UL CE approved for Australia. And normally the condition is better than a container pin from Europe.

    A Stern 60hz wont work here at all with a Hz conversion Board, Ballasts changed, varistor and thermistor

    Never mind.

    What components need to be changed to convert a U.S./ Canadian pin to be Australian compliant?

    What is this Hz conversion board?

    What are the ballasts that need changed?

    Varistor I understand.

    Thermistor. I have a rudimentary understanding but that's all.

    I have no need for such a swap. I'm just interested in knowing more.

    Thanks.
