    I have a Facebook acquaintance that posted this picture. Said it was his wife's cousin. Anyone?

    Good reason not to be identified on this site. Creepers trying to find out about your stuff and location.

    Those unique flashers on The Getaway look familiar. Maybe from the game room pics thread like 6 months ago?? Search if you want, since those are not private. (the drop ceiling and Hydro Thunder are extra clues) I'm not a creeper, just a Sherlock fan.

    Shouldn't be asking on here. Some people do not want their collection to be known publicly.

    Why not ask your friend who it is?

    I say that and get moderated, nice.

    I actually a little surprised that people post entire photos of their collections (all at once, or conduct full video pinball "tours") on any general social media website (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc).

    It actually makes a person become an increased target for theft, not for the machines that they own (as pinball machines are a little hard to sneak out the back door without someone noticing unless it is a summer home or independent storage facility), but their other household goods such as firearms, guitars, jewelery, etc.

    However, pinball machines are becoming direct targets for thievery due to increased interest in the market.
    Route games continue to be stolen in most major cities of the United States at higher volumes than the past five years.

    The question that would be asked by a thief is: "If he/she owns this type of 'expensive' stuff, what else does is the house that is potentially valuable?"
    Crop shots are fine, but any person needs to have a good security system (or at least the signs) installed to dissuade would be thieves, if they do additional research. A backtracked address search is not that hard to acquire in this day and age.

    Hopefully, the person that posted the photo, received PERMISSION to take and upload that photo of his collection (or part of it overall).
    People have taken out their camera phone in my house in the past, and I had to politely state "put it away please."
    This is part of the reason, I can no longer have open house, not private invites.

    Video tours are the best. Often show layout of the house, and security system, etc.

    Well, if someone is describing their household security system, that makes a bit more sense, especially if the games are in a sealed climate controlled basement, with no bay windows, or lower access doors, as accessibility to the entire home is a bit more tricky.

    Show of those cameras, signs, seals, and other deterrents.

    I should add if there is one, brand, and where key pad is.

    He was being a smart ass and told me to figure it out!
