1. All the friendly advice you get when you need help with repairs.

2. The Game Room's tab (Drool)

3. Checking on B_R's new additions (Where does he find these pin?)

4. Price checks that exist in the real world.

5. Browsing Pinside is more entertaining than my real job.

6. Way better than reading an old magazine when you're on the throne

8. The Bang-for-the-buck list

It's the reason I own a Johnny Mnemonic and has become my defacto shopping list.

I like that I have met and become friends with several pinheads. Good guys! Happy to be in the hobby.

meeting other people who love pinball. Also playing their collections;)

Because no matter how bad my addiction gets, there is always someone on here that has it worse than I do. "Honey, I know I've spent a lot of money but at least i'm not as bad as ____"

12. Getting to know people serious about pinball who for the most do not take themselves seriously. I know I don't; I can't! Have you read some of my recent topics?!

13. The overall lightheartedness and how egos are checked at the door.

14. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help, Pinsiders seem to go the extra mile. Thanks!

Can't wait for this to happen. My guess it will be at a show.

Y I love Pinside, How can you not love it. I bet if you do a what you don't like. it wont have much on it


2 years, 12 months ago

I love this site because everyone in general seems to get along and no drama


2 years, 12 months ago

It's the sense of community that I like best. Sure there is some occasional fighting, but overall Pinside is a place where people really want to help others who share their passion for the silver ball. Like others have already mentioned, I've also made some great friends through Pinside.

I would have never purchased a second pin if it wasn't for the encouraging help I received repairing my first. I am no pin fix expert, but I fear trying nothing, knowing this forum has my back. I n particular, the kindness shown to new owners, even when they are asking the same questions over and over again.

I love the overall design of the website-easy to maneuver, no pOP ups or ads and every once in awhile a nice shot of Salma. The members are friendly, respectful and helpful. I feel that I can ask for assistance and not get a beatdown.


2 years, 12 months ago

I love that you can log on here and find out whats new or future pinball stuff that might slip away if not staying up on all the latest info. Like pre ordering a Zombie adventure land

Thanks buddy,
I do what I can...

All are good points so far...
I think we are probably the most well rounded forum in existence right now.
We ebb and flow like the mighty ocean. Some days the surf is UP(!) and everyone is getting stoked, while some days are overcast, choppy and blown out. Either way we are content to just be there, sitting on a board. B.S.-ing about anything and everything in between.

I love you guys! Group hug!!!

Having had the pleasure of meeting him and spending a day with him, shanetastic and technobarn, I can say that B_R know's people. He is connected, meaning he has connections with people that repair and sale pins, collect pins, and he know's alot of pinheads all over the place, especially on his home turf of NC.

B_R is always on the prowl for pins, I think it's in his blood. He always has his radar ON for pins, be that buying, selling, playing, performing shop jobs and upgrades, he is a one stop shop for anything and everything that is pin related. The only thing he hasn't started is his own business for
doing high end restoration projects.

Who else could be getting a haircut and wind up buying a RFM before the day's over.
B_R! That's who.

The fact that I have and continue to make many IRL friends from this website!

On top of that they are very similar to me in many ways and inside jokes to me are often inside jokes to them > almost like some of us are cut from the same cloth and in some cases new friends can already seem like old buddies

It is pretty cool that 4 months ago I did not own a pin or know this site existed. Now I own 2 pins and have met many more new friends. If you can't buy happiness >> pins and pinside have sure done wonders for me.

I sometimes feel very odd, being captivated by an antiquated hobby.... here, I find there are people just as odd as I am.... I'm not alone!
