    I always thought that was what the "tilt" was for? Worst I seen was when I was 11 (back in the early 70's) someone completely smashed the top glass of a pinball in the arcade. Not sure if the guy was just a drunk or on something. People need to keep their cool when playing.

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    I took my restored Vampire (well, 85% restored). The amount of people that told me I was “stupid for bringing it” or that were surprised I did made me laugh. I remember telling a few of them, “I did all of this work, and am I supposed to just leave it at home to stare at it?” I wanted other people to enjoy it and see the work I had done. The game plays awesome, and there are always a ton of EM’s at shows that just play like crap.
    During the three days it was there, somebody was nice enough to keep playing with one of the pop skirts locked down, melted the spoon a little and almost burnt out the coil. No big deal, and this is a game with all brand new parts. I lifted the playfield, took it apart and fixed it. Game was back up and running in 5 minutes.
    A few people were a little abusive on it, and I was more than happy to say something to them. The game came home with a few minor scratches, but nothing to sulk over. I was glad to let people enjoy it, and plan on taking it to York as well.
    At Pintastic, I saw a couple people doing some stupid things on games, and I didn’t hesitate to say something to them, even though it wasn’t my game. That’s all we have to do.

    colsond3 Your Vampire pin sounds great and from the pictures you posted here in another thread it looks great. I have never played the pin or even seen it anymhere I have went. But you to share the pin states to your character and commitment to the hobby and you help to make this a hobby that others may want to start or even comeover to the EM side.
