    The not listing your collection thing;
    I dont get that one. This is pinside, we all collect, trade, offer advice and opinions.
    Why hide what you have? Some have more than others. Some have a one or two. Its what we do, buy expensive toys. Showing your collection I feel gives both a buyer and seller a little street cred when you go to do either.
    Location; its a big planet. Showing your city with a forum name isnt going to bring a bunch of crazies to the house. Same as stated above, when you go to sell a pin lets buyer know if they should bother to pm you.
    Show your collection and location with pride.

    Quoted from starfighter:

    I just got tired of the " hey do you want to sell_______ pin from your collection" emails.

    Really? Ive only had one email asking for my TOTAN. I mostly get guys selling mods or parts because you post something in a relevent thread.

    For those that dont like to share collection...
    This is pinside, its what we do. Share...its ok, we dont want to drive long distances and steal machine's.
    I have plenty of camera's and door alarms. ADT is a great service with handy app to monitor when im gone. Insurance is my real comfort margin. If someone goes to all the effort to break in and steal machine's. Ill just get more and some NIB, upgrade collection!
    On another note, not going to buy from secretive pinsiders that dont share collection and location. It can say a lot on who to trust.
    Lastly, who says you have to post your "whole" collection..good friend only lists about half, keeping all the modern DMD and NIB private, only lists his system 11s and Ems. He has a lot of pins.
    I do the same. Not going to add King Kong, BBB or world cup 94 in collection soon. Just dont want the whole world to know i have them.

    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    Now I'm going to have to start hiding all my stereo/TV equipment in pinballs every time I leave the house so nobody wants to move them!

    Hey, what pins you got?
    Whats for sale? Please do tell!

    I have a moat around house guarded by Alligators and nasty piranha. If someone gets caught i feed them to the hogs when gators are done snacking. They really dont like humans. The hogs clean up mess nicely without any evidence.
