Quoted from SuperDaveOsbourn:
So in summary, TNT was approached by some speculative investor to write down TNT's stories in print, publish them, and offer some exposure as well for TNT, and save the pinball community from boredom (aka. 'doing the pinball community a favor'). TNT bought into it, didn't abide by the terms, and the speculator didn't deliver on glossy paper, and made MAJOR errors in quality, in proofing/copy editing (if it was even read), and then printed. The printing was late, and wasn't received well by the buyers. Some bought in at one copy, edition 1. Others bought into the entire promised 10 issue 'book'. Each book was to be written by TNT, TT in particular, and some was removed, edited without permission, and not quality edited by the publisher. All the while the buyer was dumb enough to buy into it as an 'investment' because they love pinball, and the community. Oh, and its mostly because of TNT's quality sales and distribution as well as a desire to profit from its 40+ years of game sales and service history that this all was possible.?!? At what point does the TNT fan club stop flagging some douche that leveraged the TNT momentum, and call it the way it needs to be called?
You mean, a mess?
