    Who remembers - or can link - that crazy post someone made about Vid when he showed up at their house? If I remember correctly, he showed up with some other guy and things got really weird.

    Anyone?

    Response link doesn't work. If it's been deleted, can someone summarize?

    Works for me. Too long to summarize.

    Oh, on second look, I don't have access to this sub forum. Do I need to know a secret handshake?

    #56 37 days ago

    His location was listed as Sanaa, pretty dangerous place...hope he's ok.

    A few years ago Vid restored a playfield for someone. The guy was not happy with the outcome and Vid went into hiding. He feared for his life and even started to wear a kevlar vest. Vid then got out of restoring playfields and started to post his playfield process on Pinside.

    This, or part of this story, at one time was posted here on Pinside.

    The default setting for pinside is to hide basement topics... If you want to see that link adjust the setting to show the basement topics.

    Quoted from Tommy-dog:

    AKA, Ohio.

    If he lives in Ohio (or surrounding states) I would drive there just to buy him a few beers, he’s helped me that much with his informative threads. Pm me Vid if you’d like a free night of drinking.

    #63 37 days ago

    Haven’t seen anything since his ‘ don’t be an old fart on Grammy night’ thread. Maybe he’s nursing an injured ego?

    #64 37 days ago
    Quoted from KoolFingers:

    If he lives in Ohio...

    He was in Ohio, unsure if he still lives there. I have met him in person, he is a nice guy.

    I had no idea there is so much drama in pinball.

    Quoted from D-Gottlieb:

    I had no idea there is so much drama in pinball.

    Drama? I use to be on the RGP newsgroup. When Pinside started I signed up on the first day in hopes that Pinside would be the new drama free place. Then all the RGP drama guys left RGP and came to Pinside. I left Pinside and stayed off of it for years. I think the drama is less (better) now than it use to be so I rejoined Pinside.

    Aren’t you one of the “drama guys” Thought I read you bashing someone here recently

    Quoted from PinRob:

    I was the one that was verbally bashed recently.

    You must be referring to the Kruzman post. It is funny how you bring that up in a Vid1900 thread. I know Vid and if you read his playfield threads, especially the beginning of it, he was really referring to exactly this same person. We have spoke over a few beers on this topic and that is mainly why he wrote the playfield restoration guide to begin with.

    I was verbally attacked last week and the guy who attack me did get a 2 day suspension. My friends who know me will vouch for me but the problem is that I am an old timer and my friends are dying off. No drama here, just the truth.

    Quoted from eagle18:

    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.

    ask "marvin"

    #70 37 days ago

    WOW.... I never thought this thread would turn into all this information.

    #71 37 days ago

    Maybe we can issue an Amber Alert and find our buddy.

    This is about all I can do to help. Hope he is OK.

    Its simple, a subject he felt strongly about and the place of his next to last Post was locked and sent to the basement.
    Its over.

    #74 36 days ago

    Wtf is your problem "vireland"? You've already been told your lame ass accusations were wrong. Get over it.

    #75 36 days ago

    did the bullet proof best ever get explained?

    The mystery/mystique about this guy is hilarious. It's great for the hobby.

    He definitely helped me out, through PM, at least twice. Was thoughtful and detailed in the msgs we exchanged. LTG has done the same (and when I was green, he extended an offer of generosity that I'll never forget). These guys are pure gold.

    #79 36 days ago

    Vid was the best. He took no gruff from key board warriors.

    #80 36 days ago

    I appreciate that in his style he didn't publicly quit, or shut down his account so that everyone can know. He just stopped visiting.

    I do hope he comes back some day.

    #81 36 days ago

    Vid1900 has taught me more about pinball than any other single individual...and I have never even met the guy - much less been able to thank him personally.

    Not only is he an expert on pretty much everything, but I also appreciate his sense of humor and willingness to intelligently field/discuss controversial topics.

    Vid, if you're out there - please come back! Pinside wouldn't be the same without you!

    #82 36 days ago

    I found him. Skip to the 2:00 minute mark and enjoy!

    #83 36 days ago

    Everyone relax, Vid is just taking it easy on some tropical island drinking pina colodas with his new boyfriend.

    #85 36 days ago

    I can’t tell from reading this thread if people know something and I should be concerned or if we are just speculating?

    Damn right he can. I about shit my pants whenever i heard that! I wasn’t expecting that at all out of him lol.

    #88 36 days ago

    I think everyone needs a break from here, every now and then. It can get rough sometimes. I have been ban once for stupid stuff that I said, without thinking and have since apologized for, then took a break afterwords out of frustration.

    Maybe he'll come back and maybe he won't. Good lesson for all of us maybe....

    #89 36 days ago

    He took a job at PayPal to destroy it from the inside.

    It’s just all rank speculation best I can tell.

    So I think two people total on pinside have said they’ve met him — what does he look like? Ever since I read that thread about him being a giant leather-skinned dude I’ve had that picture in my head — really curious if that’s accurate.

    I have him pictured in my mind looking like Duke Nukem.

    There was a picture of him posted a while back so it exists on pinside unless someone removed it. Don't let his avatar fool you because he looked like a normal guy.

    #95 36 days ago

    I've spotted him at the Ohio Pinball show. Never talked to him though. A few of my pinball friends know of his excellent pinball repair and restoration work. He was doing it back when men were men.

    I swear there was a pic of him in some thread and he just looked like an average dude. Pic had that 70's look to it.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about, think there were 3 people in the pic and one was vid?

    Thread you're referring to just seemed like a bunch of clowning around to me...

    Yup, I knew it, remember seeing the pic...

    That picture was a phony, just like the thread about him choke slamming the guy on a game repair trip was made up.

    Are you sure? Unless the choke-out thread was an elaborate hoax by multiple people, I thought it was legit.

    His response certainly reads legit
