    So I contacted Vid and asked if he was going to start a new thread like Anth had done a year ago and keep it updated. He told me I had his blessing to do it. I think he'd rather spend his time on helping us out and leave the secretarial duties to somebody else. That's where I come in.

    I've arranged all his info in encyclopedic fashion, alphabetically, so that everything is really easy to find. I think.

    If anybody has any suggestions to make it better, let me know. And, of course, you'll notice today's date in the thread title. I plan to keep this updated as Vid adds new guides so that you only have to look at the OP to find what you need. (It's up to you to keep ME updated, Vid!)

    Hopefully, Robin will put this at the top with a sticky so it's always right where you need it.

    Enjoy...and thanks to Vid for all the incredible info that we've all used many times for many years.

    #3 3 years ago

    For some reason, I can't get F14, Shadow, and Space Shuttle (between the asterisks) to come up in all caps. Don't know why that is. If Robin or a mod has a workaround for that, please change those so it's easier to find. Thanks!

    #4 3 years ago

    More spacing between the sections, please!

    #5 3 years ago

    I tried and it won't let me. Must be a restriction in the website coding...like the reason I can't get certain game titles to print in all caps. Can somebody with some pull step in here and make the corrections? Robin? A mod? Anybody???

    Game titles are automatically reformatted. Extra whitespace is automatically trimmed.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    You get an upvote for the info, but Pinside gets a downvote for the crappy formatting rules.

    #8 3 years ago

    thanks for this!

    #9 3 years ago

    Thanks for this Boob !

    Use an underscore "_" character before any game name to avoid the autolinky thing:

    I like SPACE SHUTTLE <- without underscore it becomes a link.

    I like SPACE SHUTTLE <-with an underscore just before the S in SPACE SHUTTLE (the underscore becomes invisible in the post, but it's there on my edit screen), it becomes regular text.

    #11 3 years ago

    For formatting, maybe try "----->" instead of asterisks. Might stand out more?

    #12 3 years ago

    I vote "sticky" for sure... Thanks for doing this, and of course, thanks to vid1900 for the awesome work!

    You talk. I listen.

    I made the changes. Not sure I like the arrows, but I'll listen to more opinions if it's just me.

    The underscores are coming up in the all caps text, obviously. But at least I have all caps now. Don't know why that is though...

    #14 3 years ago

    Sticky!

    #15 3 years ago
    Quoted from dtowndobe:

    You talk. Robin doesn't listen.

    #16 3 years ago

    So...should I just keep bumping this until Robin makes it a sticky?

    #17 3 years ago

    Great thread idea!

    #18 3 years ago

    Not my idea, but thanks. The guy that originally did it isn't around enough to update that thread. So I organized it and prettied it up a bit so people can find what they want fast.

    So let's keep bumping this to annoy Robin into making it REALLY accessible. Like, at the top...

    #19 3 years ago

    I need to let the dogs out bump.

    #20 3 years ago

    Sticky bump

    #21 3 years ago

    Sticky bump

    #22 3 years ago

    Guess what it's time for?

    #23 3 years ago

    A thread this good, should be stickied. Sticky'd?

    #24 3 years ago

    Sticky bump

    #25 3 years ago

    An "Aw, Hell, No...This Isn't Going to Page 2!" Bump...

    #26 3 years ago

    An "Oh, you did NOT let this get to the third page!" bump...

    Sticky, anyone? Robin? Mods? Anyone???

    #27 3 years ago

    "The Boob's gonna get his ass kicked at ReplayFX" Bump!!!

    #28 3 years ago

    Sicky bump for the op. Thanks for this thread boob!

    #29 3 years ago

    What about the one for clearcoating playfields?

    #30 3 years ago
    Quoted from Pahuffman:

    What about the one for clearcoating playfields?

    Could you post the link and I'll add it? I can't find it...I have the playfield restoration one, but can't find a specific one for clearcoating. Thanks.

    #31 3 years ago

    "The Boob got schooled by an 11-year-old girl at Pinburgh today" bump!

    #32 3 years ago

    "The Boob's outta Pinburgh" bump!

    Bump for an updated compendium...and a sticky!!!

    #35 3 years ago

    Bump for sticky ......

    #36 3 years ago

    I'm getting tired of bumping this. And still no sticky. Let's start a petition.

    #37 3 years ago

    Bump for making beelzeboob sticky !

    LTG : )™

    #39 3 years ago

    Daily bump. Can't even joke about it at this point.

    #40 3 years ago

    Bumptious bump!

    #41 3 years ago

    I give up bump.

    Disclaimer : PM Robin

    #43 3 years ago

    Tough to contact Robin about it with only 92 favorites so far. I'll wait a bit before bothering him.

    #44 3 years ago

    You talk. I listen. OP updated. Topic still not sticky.

    #45 3 years ago

    Bump

    Favorite #100

    #46 3 years ago

    I'm going to be converting this to a general Pinside encyclopedia shortly. ForceFlow sent me a bunch of useful links to put on here in addition to Vid's links. I've just been too busy to get to it yet!

    #47 3 years ago

    Thanks to ForceFlow, this thread just got a whole lot better. I've added all the links he provided me with, but I haven't organized them in any fashion; just put them at the bottom.

    Here's what I want to know from people: Should I separate out the Vid stuff, or mix it all together alphabetically by subject? Should I keep this as a Vid collection thread? It's kind of grown beyond that at this point. (I had a couple people suggest that we should expand it into a general collection of helpful threads.)

    And any added thread you think shouldn't be here, let me know. On the flip side, if anybody has a suggestion for one to add, send me the link.

    It's YOUR collection of helpful threads, Pinsiders. You talk, I'll listen!

    #48 3 years ago
    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    keep this as a Vid collection thread

    or at least group them, he deserves that for all he does.

    #49 3 years ago

    Yeah...I'm leaning towards keeping this more of a Vid's Guide thread, then adding the extra stuff after. But people who don't know about Vid might not look there first or might not realize how helpful those threads are.
