Is it the new thing to no longer have your location listed? I looked at a lot of the comments and actions i see here in the WI/MN thread that don't belong here and I see many with no location listed along with TX, LA, NY and so on.

#14252 1 year ago

They may have moved and not changed it. It is also possible they are thinking about shipping.

I am in Texas, and I am about to put several pins up for sale/trade (I'm willing to ship), but I try to keep these "regional" unless otherwise noted in the OP/title thread.

It's actually an old thing. So, to answer your question, yes.

I think not listing your location is a thing when you are kind of a dick and you are afraid someone might come to your place and harm you because of something you said here . It is fear of giving out too much information about yourself. I put my location because even though at times I may be a dick I do really try to be helpful and I don’t think anyone on this site would bother coming out here to confront me . And if they do , oh well, I’m I’m not afraid of giving my location to any pinball enthusiast.

Definitely helpful info on buying/selling. And it's not like it's your damn street address. I don't understand the opposition to listing it.

I still think you should also have a set place to put a head shot on your profile, besides as your avatar if you choose to do that.

I'm thinking about acquiring a Medusa or Diner.

Anyone have any leads?

If these comments are directed at me I turned my location off many years ago when I felt I had lost out on a few deals that were sold out from under me after I had come to this sight looking for advice as a newb. Probably wasn’t the case but figured no harm in turning it off it meant I might get to seal one of those deals. I can be opinionated but stand by what I say. I live less than a mile from MN, is that close enough to post in the MN thread or no?

Not directed at you , I’ve never seen you acting like an asshole here. I have seen times where people get into arguments with someone on this site And then remove their location , those are the people I was referring to.

Not directed at you at all but I can tell you that people who post in a regional thread without listing their location just don't really feel like part of the group to me.

Hello all,
Looking for a Stern game. I am really itching for a Stars most of all. I would also really dig a cheetah or nine ball (or something else?).

I posted a couple days ago and it probably was overlooked because the thread got really busy. Anyways,I thought I would try again (sorry if its spammy).

I will be in Wisconsin at the end of the month visiting family. I may even be able to bring a game up if someone wanted to trade vs sell.

Thanks!

Daniel

Have seen your ad all over but old Sterns are hot around here now. I have F2K and Seawitch but they aren't on your list or ready to go yet.

Who snagged the Sky Jump in Burnsville yesterday on CL?

#14285 1 year ago

I've got a nice player's condition Alien Poker that I'm looking to move out. Will be set up in the garage for inspection and test plays if you're serious. Still taking COVID 19 measures at this time. Cab is really nice, playfield has some wear and sunken inserts. I made a DIY playfield protector for it and it plays well, can be easily removed. Boards have all been gone through and are solid. Backglass has some flaking but is presentable. Has 2SMD LEDs in sunlight white throughout and looks great.

#14286 1 year ago

For what it's worth Alien poker is a great game(I'm biased of course). Plus it's "value" is ridiculously low considering the current upswing in pin values. Good luck with your sale.

#14287 1 year ago

Alien Poker is a great game, definitely one of my favorite William's early solid states. I'd be very interested if I didn't already have one and am not crazy enough to need a second. GLWS.

Banned? No. What for? The TMNT pictures? My account and the Minnesota Pinball Facebook Group are up as usual. I never got contacted about anything regarding TMNT. If Stern and/or Jared would have contacted me, I would have pulled them down. I just share information as it is released from people, I don't have spies sending me insider photos of upcoming games or anything.

Those TMNT posts from the 26th are all still there too. I don't see anything missing.
