    A user, AIII has posted weird pictures in the galleries of pinballs with odd textures in a few games.

    Like Champion Pub - the ball has a texture of a tire tread:

    Twilight zone Has a swirly ball:

    There's others. It's not a huge deal, but is there a way to ask to have images removed if they're really not essential to the gallery?

    I've noticed it too...weird...

    Ok, I removed those two images. Have you spotted any others?

    #4 1 year ago

    I'll reply to this post if I see others. I know they're out there!

    I've noticed these in many galleries, I was never sure what they were. There is one in Cyclone's gallery.

    Quoted from Pablito350:

    I've noticed these in many galleries, I was never sure what they were.

    I've noticed them for many games as well. Taxi, Earthshaker, etc. Always thought they were some kind of computer genterated color pattern for shooter rods or something. . .

    If you click on the image is says who it was uploaded by at the bottom -- in this case AIII -- but that name does not show up as a current Pinside user.

    It’s a user, the account is now frozen. Looked like a bot.

    AIII was a user this morning with no forum posts and no real activity. Just those weird renders.

    Maybe it's deeproot AI.
