    All the people saying it's "never going to happen they just stole our money", they're quiet now. That's a good thing.

    I guess only 10% of the people wanting the book now are the largest critics on pinside?

    or we're just fed up to the point where we've given up wasting our breath. tell you what ron, give me $325 and you have have my book and rewards

    Quoted from paul_8788:

    Yes, because a several thousand dollar pinball machine is exactly the same as a $50 dollar book...
    I get why people are upset, especially those that contributed hundreds. I don't excuse Paperflock and the giant mess they have made out of the project to this point. It's just for me personally a pinball book isn't just something I am going to stress out about.

    I agree...was just having some fun. I didn't invest....I made a comment early on about up front money in one of the threads and was blasted by the folks behind this project, so I walked away.

    I just figured Joe and the intern-of-the-week(end) had way more fun with that $55 than I would have...

    Quoted from Manimal:

    Published by Heighway Publications and will be delivered by
    Hydrofoil to your front door.

    Unbound. Jpop will then come to your house and help you staple the pages together.

    Or, it will LOOK like that's what he's doing, but there will be no staples in the stapler. Only an impotent "click", "click", "click" with nothing to show for it.

    Hey now, I have almost every confidence that Jpop can work a stapler.

    edit: Upon receiving multiple pm's in a very short amount of time from people who had previously worked at Bally/Williams during the 1990's, I must redact my previous statement.

    #1610 8 days ago

    I think it will take at least an additional two years for the stapler design to be finished. It sure will look cool but won’t work worth a darn.

    I have seen the stapler...it indeed places staples in the paper, but there is no crimp on the back side.

    stapling is hard ...

    Blows Paperflock out of the water instead of "do you want shit or kinda shitty".

    #1616 2 days ago

    these guys are only 2 months late
    withphysical progress vs. 2 years late w/ a 5 minute format change

    plus, they apologized for being late. it took 2 years and my post to get joe to admit to that. on the negative side, it appears that AJ is actually going to be late by a minimum of 9 months (9 min mark on their video)

    Yeah true but you can likely meet him (I have) at a game show and he does panels, streams, etc. Paperflock nobody knows them and the size of the project is relatively small. I wouldn't be surprised at this point if Paperflock is actually losing money on this project.

    they can't really lose any money if they never produce the product. given that they raised over $50K to produce less than 500 books, I think that they would really have to piss away a good deal to not have enough funds to produce the actual book

    vireland or jonathan can confirm this

    Zidware was technically losing money as well...but JPop still took a lot of money out of the company from customers. I’m guessing they’ve been paying themselves in some way over the past couple of years out of Paperglock...
