    It's Friday. I'm leaving for a vacation for the weekend. This got me to thinking how thankful I am to have a 'regular' job where I can enjoy things like that.

    Then it got me to thinking about how hard the volunteers at Pinside work to keep this place great. I'm sure I don't even know HALF of the work that goes into running such a tip-top site. It's growing rapidly, and with the growth comes some growing pains. I am confident Pinside will continue to adapt and be a great resource for the community.

    Thanks to all the folks that volunteer to make this site what it is.

    That is all.

    Hey,

    I hate to be the "+1" guy, but in light of some other threads here, yeah, I'll get behind that. Keep up the good work. I realize as someone who is just a guy posting the odd thing on the forums, I see about a fraction of a percent of all of the work that goes into this site, but don't think that just because we don't see what goes down behind the scenes that we don't appreciate what you're doing.

    thumbs up guys, you don't get thanked enough.

    #4 7 years ago

    If there weren't sites like this, I would not have ever boughten my first pin for fear that I couldn't repair it etc.

    Without these sites, pinball dies.

    Considering today's drama, i think some donations should come in and help with some overtime programming for the Pinside team!

    #12 7 years ago

    Yea...I donno what kind of crazy sauce has been floating around here lately, but big kudos to Robin and the whole crew for dealing with the headaches and keeping this place cool for the rest of us. Thank you!

    Take care, and enjoy some pinball guys...you deserve it!

    HAHA, I am not headed to SD. Headed to NYC with the lady-friend.

    If you're interested SFII is psuedo-for sale though.

    Cheers to a great place to hang out. I am glad this falls under my work places policy for acceptable intermittent use of the interwebs and is not blocked. I love being able to hang out with virtual pinball friends and nerd out to pinball.

    that reminds me... I need to get back out to deadwood. LOVE that area.

    Absolutely loving this site. The hard work that the mods put in is much appreciated.

    Keep it up!

    This place is like the corner tap where you go to meet friends and have a couple of frosty mugs of pinball goodness. Thank you Robin and the whole team of bartenders!!!

    And thanks also to the folks with a heart, nothing says thank you like a donation to keep it running.

    I was just thinking to day about how everybody has each helped to get the site back to fun after the recent growth. If it were not for each person acting like adults, the site would be crazy. I love Pinside.
