Has anyone on Pinside, registered on TNT Amusements Best Offer Sale in order to bid on items? If so have you had any problems with registering or buying? The reason I ask is because a friend of mine who is in IT looked over TNT registration site http://sale.tntamusements.com/ and gave me his opinion. He said first of all the site is not secure and because of that he would never enter all the private information needed to register. His concern is the site could easily be hacked and more importantly would want to know what TNT was doing to secure every one's personal information? Other concerns were who designed the site because in his opinion it looked like an 8th grader designed it. So it all revolves around security of personal information and the site is lacking that. I registered on the site and have not received any acknowledgement and now that's concerning. So I would have to agree with my friend about security of personal information. At TNT the who, what and where about security of personal information. Any comments?
Thankyou everyone for your comments to my question. I didn't expect so many responses. I see that Todd Tuckey from TNT also made a comment. First I would like to say I'm a huge fan of Todd Tuckey and both my sons and I watch his videos and have donated to him in the past. With that being said I'm disappointed in his comment of accusing me of being a TROLL. Lets start from the beginning. I wanted to be able to possibly buy from his sale so I registered on the site. Now against my friends recommendations not to register because the site wasn't secure. I did register then went back to sign in. I couldn't sign in it gave me this message "We were not able to login with your EMailAddress and password, please try again." Then I was concerned because my thoughts were did someone now have my information etc. So with that I did reach out to pinsiders to see what others had to say about there experience with registering on the TNT sale site. In no way did I attack or Troll Todd Tuckey after all he is the King of Pinball to us. It seems Todd Tuckey is deflecting from the main question "Is Your Site Secure for Entering Personal Information". And from what I have read the answer is NO the site is not secure. Everyone who has registered is at risk for there information to be stolen and possibly a victim of identity theft. This is a serious concern and now I'm glad I posted this because Todd Tuckey doesn't seem concerned about security of his fans personal information. As we have seen in the past businesses like Target, Home depot, Macy's and even Equifax have been hacked. And as a result major lawsuits have been filed against these companies for security breaches. TNT Amusements is no different because they are a business taking personal information and are required to secure it. But from what I've read TNT didn't secure the personal information. Look at ForceFlow (pinside moderator) explaination. He is in agreement the site isn't secure and gives recommediations on how to secure your personal information. Thankyou ForceFlow for your professional input. Also there was a comment by Princess
Jillian the web developer who stated the web site was a prototype. A PROTOTYPE ! So everyones personal information is at risk for the web site in progress. Also Jilliian jokes about the security issue by referring to Todd Giant Roledex, once again its all a joke to them. It seems to me like the 3 stooges Todd Tuckey doesn't take the issue seriously from the comment he left. And maybe phil-lee comment is true is TNT going out of business and they just don't care. Also someone made a comment that TNT was making money from sale while the store was closed. From watching the videos its crystal clear that TNT is open for business. You see people are picking up games and Todd states you can stop in and shop around. And not to mention all employees can be
seen working but he states there furloughed, doesn't make sense if there furloughed they shouldn't be there. But I looked into this and found out that in
PA, TNT Amusements is a non-essential business and according to the governor of PA is suppose to closed. According to TNT Amusements youtube videos
its open for business. Also todd to answer your comment about my user name all I can say is pintim80, yes my name is tim I love pinball and I was born in 1980. Now I learned a lesson on security and should have a better secured user name. Im disappointed in TNT about how they handled there response and most of all my sons will also be disappointed. Eye poke won't get you out of the issue of security. Thankyou everyone for reading this. pintim80 out.
Sadly my sons and I agreed that it's best to move on from this. So we decided to unsubscribe from your you tube channel and look else where. There are a lot of other talented pinball people out there and they are the future of pinball. They will be here long after your gone and forgotten about. I do wish you much success in your TNT Amusements Best Offer Sale. And I hope your remaining fans will support you. But these 3 fans are disappointed in there pinball idol and can no longer support him especially for the twipy award in 2021. That's 3 thumbs down. Sincerely, pintim80Added 11 days ago:
Thankyou Princess Jillian for correcting the security concerns I had for the TNT Amusements Best Offer Sale. I know understand that your under a time constraint but still think your doing a great job. And yes Todd needs to update the TNT Amusements 1980's AOL dial up web site to the year 2020. Just think if Todd handled this issue from the beginning more professionally than pinball as a whole would be better off. It seems Todd always has to get the last eye poke in at any expense. What about TNT Amusements being a non-essential business that should be closed at this time according to Governor Wolf of PA. I'm sure all the businesses in PA that are closed because they are following the law to slow the spread of COVID19 would have something to say to Todd Tuckey. Just watch TNT Amusements You Tube Videos and you can be the judge. Or maybe there needs to be a real judge. Eye poke….I know, eye pokes will never be the same.Added 11 days ago:
Wow, like other posts on pinside this could go on and on and on. So I'm going to be the better man and put an end to this. Just think this all started over a concern about the security of information on the TNT Amusements Best Offer Sale. As I stated in the beginning of my post I registered on the TNT Best Offer Sale web site and when I went to log on I couldn't. I emailed TNT and received no response so I reached out on pinside to get others opinions. I did receive a comment from Todd Tuckey owner of TNT Amusements accusing me of being a TROLL. In the end I was right about the security concern. Princess Jillian explained and apologized that she didn't implement the security protocol. I will say that she did act on it immediately and now TNT Best Offer Sale web site is secured. Since I'm the one who brought this issue to Todds attention you would think that Todd would thank me, didn't happen. The person who was the most professional about this was Princess Jillian and she didn't have to since she was doing this as a favor for Todd. This here shows her character and work ethic. Thank you Princess Jillian. I believe this all started over an error which I will explain but could of been handled in a much better manor by Todd Tuckey. When Todd posted my personal information on post #28 which was removed by the pinside moderator because it's against the pinside rules. I noticed the email section you enter your address was missing the @designation. So the email was correct but missing the ending. I believe this is maybe why my original email to TNT was not answered. So in post #54 Todd wants me to email him so he can remove my information. He believes I'm a TROLL and now when I email him with my name and email that will match his Best Offer Sale registration and he will fell like a heel. Hopefully that will be the last of Todd Tuckey's comments. And of course he will never admit he was wrong. I will admit that this has been a good lesson in life for my sons: the person you look up to can be an asshole. Thank you pinside pintim80Added 10 days ago:
This post is heading in a direction that I hadn't intended it to. I was simply looking for others suggestions to my question.
I'm ending my comments because in my opinion this is not what pinside is about.
Todd Tuckey is still KING in the pinball hobby to my boys and me. And yes I've resubscribed to the TNT You Tube Channel.
Hey Todd Tuckey, Someone notified me that you made some additional comments. I've moved on from this but curiosity brought me back.
Why are you wasting your time on this when you should be focusing on the latest release from STERN. Let me bring you up to speed TMNT,
I'll spell that out for you (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). In my opinion and others the pin of 2020 and perhaps 2021. Why aren't you mentioning
this or at least providing links for the TNT fans. I looked but found nothing from you. I was discussing this with several friends and one summoned it all
up. Todd Tuckey isn't the guy for latest information concerning pinball. He was right on and to answer why would take several long pages. I'll sum it up in pinball terms. Stern Pinball Jurassic Park "dinosaur". But you are the KING for all old pinball content and 3 stooges format and nobody can take that from you.
Here are a couple links you can pass onto to TNT Fans for STERNS TNMT and you will notice all are secured sites.
Also I read your having the TNT BEST OFFER SALE #4 on May 30th 4pm TNT Amusements. I'm looking forward to this especially
since I'm now a registered bidder on your now secured web site. There are a few items that have my interest and I will be bidding on.
And I recommend all to register and join in or at the least to watch.
Thanks for the offer but the last time I checked in my garage I had enough JUNK T-SHIRTS that I use to wipe the oil off the
dipstick when checking my cars oil. eye poke
Please no more comments I'm moving on and will probably remove my TROLL account.Added 4 days ago:
