    I see where vid has not been on Pinside for over a month. Anybody have any contact with him and know if he’s ok? He’s such an asset to the community.

    #2 1 year ago

    Wondering that myself

    #3 1 year ago

    Asked the Moderators that same question 12 days ago.

    Could he be in Eastern Europe, where there is sketchy internet. Did get in a bar fight, and was thrown in jail? Worst, has he passed away?

    #4 1 year ago

    I noticed this too, thanks for starting a thread eagle18. Hopefully somebody can shed some light on Vids whereabouts. Hopefully vid1900 himself will do that.

    I bet hes cruising around in a van somewhere with Popok and Beelow.

    #6 1 year ago

    He's probably in a stripper bar somewhere . . .

    #7 1 year ago

    He’s very old and has numerous international enemies going back to the 1940s...many of whom have been biding time, waiting for the moment of revenge.

    Hopefully he’s ok!

    #8 1 year ago

    Maybe he is hanging out with O-din....

    #9 1 year ago

    Or playing pinball

    #10 1 year ago

    Certainly one of the most interesting, knowledgeable, mysterious and people on here, albeit a bit hyperbolic at times. That's for sure. I definitely enjoy his posts.

    He posted fuse advice in a resto thread on Aussie Arcade two days ago. So he’s alive.

    #12 1 year ago

    Yup. Pinside would not be the same without him!

    #13 1 year ago

    Maybe he went to the dessert on a horse with no name?
    Maybe he wanted to be out of the rain

    LOL!!!!

    #15 1 year ago

    Most likely he is still hiding out in Sana's, aka Ohio.

    #16 1 year ago
    Quoted from DMC:

    I’m figuring someone on here pissed him off and he’s taking a break.

    Quoted from eagle18:

    I am thinking if that were the case you'd be seeing more posts from him.

    #18 1 year ago

    It's funny, I was just wondering where Vid has been and then this thread pops up. Crazy.

    #19 1 year ago
    Quoted from eagle18:

    There is some truth to that. He has gone into hiding before. I can't say much more than that other than "those who can't do, teach". When you pissed off the wrong guy, things happen. I'm not that guy but there was some unhappy customer that he had that was.

    He is definitely very valuable to the community. I have a large number of his guides favorited and reference a few of them fairly frequently. If he's seriously taking time way from pinside I really hope he reconsiders as his absence is definitely noticed.

    #21 1 year ago

    His past few post were kind of out there, and I think they got locked if I remember right. I'm sure someone can correct me on that if I am wrong.

    Ditto!

    Please don't go (Vid1900)!!

    #24 1 year ago

    He said nothing to any of the mods. We had a good relationship with vid though none of us know who he actually is IRL. Absolutely one of the most mysterious and interesting people on Pinside. I hope he is okay and returns.

    #25 1 year ago

    OK OK I get it. i know what's going on here.

    So in on a vid1900 LE. Called my distributor today.

    #26 1 year ago

    My theory is he is a time traveling, how else can one guy know so much! He’ll be back.

    #27 1 year ago

    So nobody knows who Vid actually is? Celebrity? FBI Top Ten most wanted?

    #28 1 year ago

    Vid 1900 WHERE ARE YOU?????

    #29 1 year ago

    Had a theory he was Gary Stern. Mild mannered business man at work. Snappy pinball repair guy on line, also capable of crass come backs.
    But he is not him.

    My bet is Deeproot hired him.

    Quoted from Frippertron:

    I used to think he was Clay, but he is not.

    But he is not him.

    Ha! I never shared the theory he was Gary (he knew too much!), but I also considered he was Pat L or Roger S...

    #32 1 year ago

    I spoke to Vid right before the Michael Jackson documentary on hbo. It was a private message convo. Hope he’s well.

    #33 1 year ago

    Maybe like Odin and other pinsiders that kept things lively on here they are gone. It's a newer kind of site from years back and well maybe people got what they wanted.

    #34 1 year ago

    Vid’s alright i dont care what his teacher’s used to say about him

    #35 1 year ago

    A vid1900 is posting regularly at the strat-talk.com forums, even today. Just sayin’

    #36 1 year ago

    I get the impression Pinside has jumped the shark. It ain't the same, that's for sure. Probably time to sell my pins....

    #37 1 year ago

    I started wondering what the heck happened to Vid about two weeks ago but decided to wait until his pinside pulse had flatlined for a full month before starting a thread....and then stumbled onto this. Pinball restoration is some of the best fun with a steep learning curve I've ever had and I couldn't have done it without a ton of generous help from vid1900. I just hope he hasn't flatlined for real. Mysterious dude, indeed. Almost like the Banksy of the pinball world.

    #38 1 year ago

    Why be a Pinside influencer which doesn't pay dick when you can be a Youtube influencer which at least pays something?

    #39 1 year ago

    He is choking people out and saying...Why are you not listening to me!!!

    #40 1 year ago
    Quoted from Buzz:

    It's a newer kind of site from years back and well maybe people got what they wanted.

    I spend time reading old threads from a decade ago sometimes. It’s crazy...people are all nice and respectful & like half the posters are retired/inactive.

    #41 1 year ago

    The Great man dropped in Aussie Arcade 2 days ago

    Quoted from mcluvin:

    The most annoying posts are usually from people signed up a year or less, I agree pinside needs to keep the longer members involved in the community more.

    #43 1 year ago

    The man is taking a break from Pinside, nothing wrong with that!
    People mentioned some other forums. Are they pinball-centric, or do they encompass other hobbies as well? I’ve been looking for other forums to find help with my other coin-op hobbies like soda/snack & change machines.

    Perhaps he’s focusing on different avenues at the moment?

    #44 1 year ago

    Did anyone try to PM him?

    #45 1 year ago

    I did notice the Arcade1up thread has been quiet also. (Vid started thread) No "single mom" references in awhile.

    Has anyone met vid in person?

    Quoted from PinRob:

    Is vid a person?
    Lol.

    Ya, I’m pretty sure that there’s been mention of him meeting up with pinsiders I’ve the years.

    Probably, but you never realize it til later

    Vid1900 & O-din

    I miss these two, their knowledge and perspectives help balance topic discussions on the forum as new people discover pinball.
