    Quoted from PinWiz17:

    I dont know if anyone has put this out there yet. My idea is a page dedicated to members of Pinside to taking pictures with there Pinside t shirts on at land marks around the world or with famous people. For example a Pinsider with his/her shirts on at the Statue of Liberty or the Effiel Tower, or even scuba diving. Something along those lines. What do you guys think?

    yes and integrate it with the map Our Gym has something just like this. Had my pic at E3 on the baord

    What about a How to section with how to guides, highly organized and maybe with video's? For example. Waxing PF, replacing battery, etc. Just so its easier to find a how to than having to post the question and searching can be hit or miss depending on tags or words used.

    It would be helpful if we could put in a different name for threads we put in our favorite list. Kind of a note to self of why we saved the thread. The reason being is I might favorite it due to a very helpful/specific comment(s) made in the thread but really is not described well by the original header of the thread.

    #253 8 years ago

    Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this but when you get pinside mail, you can see who sent it but you can't click to go directly to their profile. That with a user search would make it easy to find someone.

    Maybe an indexing / archive of old articles an stories that have been on the front page. Seems like once they leave the front page they get a bit tricky to find. Some type of browsable knowledge base would be really nice.

    Then, maybe some of the stickies in the forum that are more like articles (and less like discussions) could be moved to this archive.

    #255 7 years ago

    If you didn't change anything, you have a wonderful site. And congrats on the TF! that said, some specific suggestions;

    1. The ranking system is cumulative. I would like a monthly rating system in addition to the cumulative. Sometimes a large change in the perception of the rating of a pin won't be reflected in the rating because of the large number of previous ratings. Monthly ratings, or quarterly would help reflect the current concensus of the desirability of a machine.
    2. A voluntary buy/sell information base. Most pins' values are hard to track. Why not have members, each time they acquire or sell a pin, list a. their location b. condition of the pin 1-5 with 5 being like new etc, c. amount paid. This would give a much better idea of the current value of pins in different areas, much better than figuring it out from ebay shill sales etc. This would answer the constant forum posts asking for value information.
    3. Forum posting of the week... the most helpful, or thoughtful, or thought provoking etc.
    4. Start a section for regional Pinsiders clubs. Maybe offer some Karma points for setting it up, and subsections of the regional club leader and members, so Pinsiders could easily communicate to other Pinsiders in their area.
    5. Formation of a relationship with manufacturers, with perhaps surveys done and provided to them which reflect feedback from a large number of us users which may influence their manufacturing decisions.

    Hope that helps. Overall, great work Robin.

    Pinballs for trade section might be good

    #258 7 years ago

    Would be nice to be able to follow topics and get an optional email with the content of any new posts in that topic and a link to the topic as well.
    great job otherwise, i'm spending more and more time on here

    In the Worldwide locations to play pinball map, It'd be great to be able to have a bit more info in the roll-over description. Currently, when the cursor is placed over a location, it shows the name of the establishment.

    In planning a vacation to New York this spring, I was of course looking for locations (my wife owes me a pin-crawl as a football bet). With a good number of pin locations around the area, I find that it'd be really useful to have the number of pins as a data point with the name so as to more easily identify those locations with a high number of pins without having to click thru each location.

    Very small bug.

    The phrase "Add tags to this topic..." shows up in the trending keywords.

    #262 7 years ago

    It's probably already been said, but video section that pinsiders can post pinball related videos on pinside. Or if you can a YouTube channel just for pinsiders to upload videos.

    #263 7 years ago

    I would like to see some kind of mark on each thread that I have posted in. That is a fairly common
    item in many internet forums. It helps remind you to check back and see if anybody has responded to what you have said in a particular thread.

    Just check the "Your recent activity" link at the top for that.

    I'd like to be able to see estimated value on the wishlist page rather than having to click on each machine separately. When I go to shows, I take a list with me to use as a buying guide.

    #266 7 years ago

    I have got an easy one. I would like to see a forum topic opened just for restorations. That way when someone starts a new restoration their progress could be enjoyed from start to finish. And everyone could learn different tips and tricks that people use while restoring a game. Only problem I can see is that I would probably be looking at it all of the time and never getting any actual work done.

    I have a beat up, re-import, WCS that I have stripped completely down to nothing and am in the process of restoring now that I would put in there.

    #267 7 years ago

    A better segregated market place section so it's easier to find pins for sale in my aread

    #268 7 years ago

    Less tits, more pinball.

    I am sure many Pinsider's are trying to enjoy this site while at work.
    However, it is becoming increasingly difficult with all the adult images that pop up in the threads.

    I'd personally prefer if most could remain focused on pinball rather than porn.
    Granted, porn is nice, but it's generally straying a bit from the topic of pinball.

    Just an observation.

    Probably why I cannot access Pinside at work anymore. Thanks guys.

    #270 7 years ago

    The ability to post pictures with an iPad. I usually direct link a pic from photobucket to forums but am unable to do it here. Is this possible?

    Either we need more mods, tagging NSFW or no random boob shots. I'm all for boobies don't get me wrong, however, I would like to read the forums without question at work, and the random boob pics are getting kinda annoying in threads they don't belong. Nothing against the current mods, but we rally need to get the NSFW going for thread titles.

    I'm afraid my work filters will start picking up the site if it doesn't get cleaned up. I'd rather not have to remote in to my home PC to read a few posts throughout the workday....

    #272 7 years ago

    You can disable pictures. Go to main Forum page and above the thread list to the right there is an option to turn off pics. I usually read it like this.

    #273 7 years ago

    Thanks for the suggestion, and may have to do that (which is a shame) cause I would like to see playfields and pins, just not the other stuff while working

    #274 7 years ago

    What I would like to see next on pinside.com? Next I would like to see it revert from RGPside.com back to pinside.com. There I said it. I found both forums the same day, signed up to both of them the same day and quickly realized this is where I prefer to be. The Ora or vibe if you will is much more to my liking here. I feel a shift and it's not for the better. I'm not referring to the flaming threads, that's going to happen. There's always a wizman in the bunch. After all we are on the Internet. It goes much deeper than flaming threads. It's hard to explain but I'd imagine there's many of you who have made this you home that know what I'm talking about. Everything from random boob pics to someone with a 30 pin collection being called out, implying he needs to post pics or he's full of bs. I LOVE BOOBIES. I bought my wife a very nice pair But I don't want pins on my porn sites and I don't want porn on my pin site(well just a tiny bit but with NSFW). I saw RPG as a fast paced, cut throat, big city feeling fourm(like New York) and Pinside like a small town friendly, everyone knows your name kinda fourm. Full of comradery(sp) and good karma. Now we're trying to figure out a system to pass out bad karma. Joking or not it crossed our minds for a reason. I'm not sure everyone, or anyone , agrees with me but it's been on my mind. Not sure anything can be done about it. It's not a breaking of the rules it's a breaking of tradition. Other than not feeding into it and not contributing to it I don't think anything can be done about it. Dosent mean I have to like it though. Just had to vent. Thanks.

    I remember Robin mentioning some time ago that an iPad app was in development. I use my iPad probably 80% of the time on Pinside. Would really like to be able to post pictures from it, but I do understand the limitations of the platform.

    It would be awesome if we could somehow be notified when one of our posts has been quoted so we don't lose track of a question or continued correspondence. Not sure if that is even possible just throwing it out there.

    #278 7 years ago

    Can we get different ratings profiles for LE and Pro models? TRON and AC/DC and TF LE models are significantly different than the Pro, and should be rated as such.

    I'd like to see this forum integrated with the tapatalk app for iphones and ipads.

    #286 7 years ago

    A dedicted sections for Pinball Mods - split into brand categories: Gottleib, Stern, Bally, Williams, Sega, Data East. Then when you go into a particular brand the threads are listed something like:
    - Iron Man - Iron Monger Arc Reactor LED.

    I know some people are not into mods but on the right machine, some look cool and it would be a easy way to search for something for ideas etc.

    Definitely a good idea but not easy to implement. It's high up my list though!

    Have you tried adding topics to your favorites? This, in combination with the "new!" badges introduced with Pinside 2.5 update will make your Pinside life a lot easier!

    Quoted from n2kenai:

    However, it is becoming increasingly difficult with all the adult images that pop up in the threads.

    With Pinside 2.5, this is now possible with "Tilt Warnings". See the post ratings box (the bumper icon) in the top right of a post. You can mark posts as unsafe by adding a tilt warning. Obviously this will only work if all Pinsiders participate and mark posts with a tilt warning where needed.

    Note that there are still rules stating what can and what cannot be posted to the site and yes, the moderators will still delete questionable content.

    I just hope "Tilt Warnings" system will be faster to mark posts as NSFW then any moderator could spot them. After all, we're using the power of the whole Pinside community to help tag posts as NSFW!

    #289 7 years ago

    OOOOooooo...I like the new look, very nice Robin!! As for the tilt warning I haven't tried but will soon. I also really like the buttons which let you know if you have not read the thread. This place just keeps getting better. Bravo Zulu!!! (we just need a smiley giving a big thumbs up now).

    #290 7 years ago

    Nice job Robin, I really like the new features.

    Would like to see more Pinsiders rating EM'S,EM pinball machines got me hooked on pinball a long time ago!!

    #295 7 years ago

    +1 on more EM machines. Some other items I'd like to see. And thanks for the great site!

    1 - Regional forums, this will allow locals to schedule local events and meet-up. I know we have location and the map but having a watering hole would be nice.

    2 - Verified users, or something like this - to prevent scammers / trolls but also to promote community and trust. I believe most pinheads are stand-up folks, so filling out a location, etc. would give you more karma or maybe a different badge, so folks know you had some type of vetting and not just an anonymous person on the internet.

    3 - Good buys forum -> where Group buy, Pinside discounts, this would tie into maybe #1, for example Pinball Life gives good size discounts on larger orders, larger orders on heavier items, etc.
    The Cointaker discount, etc.

    4 - Pinball of the month feature. Small mini content/review to promote more detailed pinball game reviews, that is with pictures, text write ups - that can be promoted on the site as a Pinball game of the month. Reward writers with micro-badges, or karma, etc.

    Dear Pinside,
    I really like looking at your top 200 ranked pins. Is there any way you can extend it to include all the pins in the database? I'd really like to see what comes after the top 200. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks for all the hard work making the site what it is already!

    #297 7 years ago

    Some system dedicated purly to the venders. A way to search who sells what and how their customers have viewed them would be helpful. It is challenging to search it all out in the message board.

    #298 7 years ago
    Quoted from scooter:

    I don't think you want that. Many of us find those things boring as hell. If I were forced to rate them, they'd get all zeroes. I know there are folks that like them. I'm guessing they are the ones that are rating them.

    I'd like a way to disable sub forums on a per user prefs basis from the new post page so I don't see things like off topic posts about teachers treating autistic kids badly when I come to see what pinball related things are up.

    #299 7 years ago

    I would like to see 99 cent Coney Islands! It goes over big where I live in Michigan. Not some cheap hot dog BS either nor cheap chili sauce...needs to be good and only be 99 cents...yeah...that's what I would like to see at Pinside next
