    #1367 55 days ago

    Waaaaaay to cartoony/childish

    #1368 55 days ago

    I think it’s pretty amazing artwork. The details are slick. I think creative, alternative backglasses are always fun to break up the same ole’ backglasses/translites you see everyday. Heck, I’d even want these on my wall. The MB and AFM are great too!!

    #1369 55 days ago

    Well drawn for its style, but not my cup of tea and doesn't match the game. I haven't heard too many complaints about MM's translite in the last 23 years. I wish they'd update some of the uglier games, but most of those are third party and would be a nightmare if not impossible to license.

    #1370 55 days ago

    FYI!

    Out of an abundance of caution, I am going to wait to ship out the TWIPY trophies and the giveaways to the TWIP monthly winners from March until until a later date.

    I am also planning on NO TWIP next Monday as my computer has decided to stop working properly

    In the downtime I'm going to try to get way deep into Jurassic Park, Willy Wonka, Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle, and maybe even finally Rule the Universe on Attack from Mars!!

    Stay safe pinheads!!

    So your computer caught a virus? Gotcha.

    Ruling the universe is achievable and it felt great, twice.

    Actually my keyboard is jacked up, some of the buttons not working so it is taking FOREVER to type.

    "Twice"...showoff!

    Man I remember the first time I ruled twice in the same game; so much stamina in the 90s!

    Enjoyed the labeled pics and seeing a few people for the first time.

    #1380 42 days ago

    Amazing article! Is there a Twipy for best pinball news story? If not, you just got my vote for next year.

    #1381 42 days ago

    Great feature. Congrats.

    #1382 42 days ago

    Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

    I'm hoping to convince the committee next year that anything TWIP will be ineligible for the TWIPYs! They have outvoted me the last couple years on that tho.

    #1384 42 days ago
    Quoted from pin2d:

    I'm hoping to convince the committee next year that anything TWIP will be ineligible for the TWIPYs! They have outvoted me the last couple years on that tho.

    Here's 2 cents for the discussion.

    Separate the TWIPYS from TWIP. Sounds crazy I know and you probably don't want to lose control, but if you think about it, the people making the decisions are the voters, not TWIP.

    Create a separate body with an independent board of governors that are responsible for the awards. You can chair the board, just be a board member or pass the torch entirely. Keep the name, TWIPYS, this will guarantee that everyone knows who started the awards and provide some richly deserved recognition. Also this format provides for the future of the TWIPYS if and when you can no longer participate.

    With this setup TWIP can compete with everyone else. TWIP deserves to be recognized for it contribution to the community, not excluded from recognition.

    Or you could just ditch the public participation, nominate and name the winners as decided by TWIP, which is also a good way to go and what is implied by the name anyway. This way you can ignore your hard work to your heart's content.

    Lastly,
    You are doing a great job TWIP is an excellent news source, resource and all around benefit for the hobby, while the TWIPYS have become an annual tradition that we all look forward to. BRAVO!

    #1387 34 days ago
    Quoted from pin2d:

    - TPF Clearance Sale

    unclear to me, is this actual swag from TPF (official merch), or that of a vendor?

    It seems advertised as official, but it dont think it is since it does not go to their website.

    #1388 34 days ago

    Hopefully I’m wrong, but it feels like the rating aspect of that promoter database could turn petty. One more way for the bigger names to measure d*cks, and for viewers to settle pinside squabbles with a bad rating. Also, could you change the name to Self Promoters Database?

    Quoted from Whysnow:

    It seems advertised as official, but it dont think it is since it does not go to their website.

    Good point, it is a clearance sale for Silverball Swag, not TPF official merch. I updated the descriptions and links to clarify that better.

    Haha some would definitely fit the "Self Promoters" description! Hopefully it will be a good source for people (especially those newer to the hobby) to find pinball content they enjoy. That is the idea anyway.

    If it turns into a d*ck measuring contest then we can remove the ratings aspect or make other adjustments. Or just shut it down entirely if really turns into a sh*t show.

    #1391 34 days ago

    Also, this is going to be a "beta"-type release of the Pinball Promoters database and there will be changes as we go, so if anyone has any input on how to make this work best please let me know here or PM me! Thanks - Jeff
