I've disliked the know-it-alls in the pinball community before. Feeling it first hand today.

I posted a YouTube "congratulations" video to my friend Rob, who just recently bought Star Wars Stern Home pinball machine.

The video is obviously of low quality in that it was thrown together in Apple iMovie. It is even improperly formatted (vertical iPhone for widescreen video).

Why someone has to be a prick and leave such a comment, is beyond me. Why come throw salt on my plate, it won't make your life any brighter? Haven't you heard "mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy"?

I've seen worse, I feel for those who work in pinball and have to get comments like this weekly. Certainly not the first time a Mr. KnowItAll knew too much.

Thoughts?

People are assholes.

WTF does that even mean, installs it close to wall?

#3 89 days ago

He plays backgammon, what do you expect.

#4 89 days ago

Wow, guess some people are just Richards!

I don't personally know Rob but Way To Go!! Congrats.

Really? That's the comment that was bad enough for you to screencap, draw arrows, caption it, and start a thread? First day on the internet?

Quoted from AckerApple:

I've seen worse

Many choices in life...

0. suffer over the smallest of things by reacting
1. turn off comments
2. don't read comments
3. grow thicker skin
4. know when you've been trolled
5. learn from the guy what his comment meant to him

My question would be, why did you choose to go with 0?

#7 89 days ago

Maybe he is suggesting that you showcase the new Star Wars pinball so that both sides of the artwork can be seen? Otherwise I have no idea what that comment really means in reference to the video

...and you will get harsher comments on Pinside with your OP

Hmmm....I have seen this guy with a dicecup in his hand before

#9 89 days ago

My next question is, how did a backgammon player find your video so fast?

It's 2020, doesn't everyone know it's illegal to film vertically?

#11 89 days ago

Yes, first day on the internet and born yesterday. What was I thinking I was gonna start a new hash tag or me too?

No, I just have tools and a place to vent. That’s what this forum is for. Little venting about some BS. I’ll grow thicker skin, sure, I’ll still use annotations and forums too.

#12 89 days ago

I remember my first day on the internet.

JK

People are assholes, don't sweat it

Well go ahead and "film" your pinball machine horizontally and let's see how it looks (obviously better than this video but you get my drift)

#14 89 days ago

After reading this thread the only logical thing to do is start a complaint thread of my own.

#15 89 days ago

Yes you were saying...….

Because it’s free.. Saw a guy not wash his hands in the Burger King bathroom other day- I decided to just look at him really mean-like ,instead of starting a thread about it. I chose poorly. My blood pressure was like 200 over 120 all day- should have vented. Why am I leaving this comment? Oh yeah- see first sentence.

We got us a health nut! Eating at BK probably worse than failing to wash your hands.

#19 89 days ago

I (used to) know how to spell.

It's "starry" night.

And I do not play backgammon...

^^THIS!

Worst thread in history...grow some balls!

#22 88 days ago

I got a reply comment from original YouTube comment.

"Some people place a pool table as close to a wall and don't recognize their stupidity either."

I guess don't put the side of your pinball machines near walls?

jardine yancy

Agreed, worst thread ever. I could have approached this in a far more entertaining fashion for your viewing pleasure.

mof

"Starry", got it thanks. iMovie no spell check.

Thanks ya'llllllllllll

#26 88 days ago

Man, if that guy only knew how badly he lit your fuse. Not only are you going to read his comment every morning while brushing your teeth but you also had to start a thread in a pinball forum about it to help soothe the pain, lol. Good luck with your future internet endeavors bud.

#27 87 days ago

pipes yeah it burned my balls. It happens, good to go through.

mof, I don't think he's trolling me. I think he's serious or a combination of both.

HEY, I got a reply! This guy knows more.....

@Acker Apple
And when your hand hits the wall when performing an extreme slap save then you'll have learned the lesson too. But before there's even the possibility for that to happen you'll need to first realize how a power slap save is executed:
You determine which flipper the ball will come closest to (let's assume it's the left flipper) and that's the flipper knob you hit hard first, followed by the right one about 1/10 sec later. What happens is that you bang the whole playfield first from left to right and with your 2nd slap from right to left. The ball however continues on it's trajectory almost uninfluenced bc the moving playfield and the ball are both very smooth / slick (imagine like ice). That action enables the tip of the right flipper to reach a part of the ball and kick it slightly upwards but almost parallel to the right while the right flipper comes and completes the rescue by kicking the ball upwards - back into play.

The slap save (double power bang flip) only works when you hit the buttons and the cabinet at high speed. It's nature is not follow-through but extremely short hits comparable to karate style. In order to be that fast you need your fingers / hands to accelerate for quite a while. When executed to perfection it's probably the most satisfying pinball skill there is as you actively turn your fate around in the game.

If you dont want negative comments, dont put it out in the public. Comes with the territory.

#29 87 days ago

Dude.... Have you ever read Youtube comments? Its like the cesspool of the internet. Nothing to even consider or get worked up over. I'm pretty sure Herpes, Syphilis, The CLAP, FLU, and the Bud Light Virus originated from Youtube comments. Its a foul place!

#30 87 days ago

I've never even thought to read comments on any videos I've posted to Youtube. I just don't give a shit what anyone thinks of a video I posted, so I never think to go back to my videos to read them. I post a video and that's that, I don't look back.

You could also disable comments.

#31 87 days ago

My advice would be to continue to escalate this until someone threatens legal action for "libel" or you start getting crazy threatening phone calls at work.

#32 87 days ago

I wonder what Backgammon Player's Pinside name is.

#33 87 days ago

I wonder why we all aren't leaving offensive comments on this video now.

#34 87 days ago

I have 3 pins, but I don't recall having to "install" any of them. I also put sliders under mine, so I can easily "re-install" in a different location a few inches away when I need to work on them.

BTW, if you haven't figured out yet that people make negative comments on social media platforms (including this one), you're in for a rude awakening.

#35 87 days ago

What if this is just a crazy effort to drive views to a shitty video? Might as well make my comment follow the natural progression of Pinside threads.

#36 87 days ago
Quoted from Rager170:

Or an alternate solution: Disable/turn off video comments.

#37 87 days ago

The inter webs are full of pricks. It’s not right for this prick to post this. But also you should be aware the inter webs are full of pricks and some prick will always post some prick reply to your post. It’s a sad fact of modern times.

#38 87 days ago

Paraphrasing Rumi here "If every rub irritates you, how will you ever get polished? "

I was expecting some sexist or racist slurs posted on a pinball channel for children stricken with cancer. Instead, a guy who plays backgammon who thinks the pin is too close to a wall. Woe is me.

Im not a youtuber, so didnt know that was an option. But yes, thats certainly the way to go!

Man some lady exploded on me at Whole Foods for trying a damn grape which was freaking sour so I didn’t want the bag. I told her mind her own business . Done and done .

Quoted from yancy:

I mean what should we expect? A friend got a pinball machine and instead of sending the guy a text saying "cool" or "awesome, can't wait to play it", OP instead sets up a camera, films a video, edits it in movie maker, and then uploads it to Youtube (...and then probably has to direct said friend to said video, and in that time could've just shared his thoughts directly)

Its her business if she was going to buy the bag you were picking fruit from lol.

This is true , I still didn’t wAnt it , not paying 7.00 for sour grapes

Did you threaten to beat her up, or is that just a Pinside thing?

#47 87 days ago

This chump went from low rate troll to a fucking legend; flipper knobs, double power bang flips, I love this guy.
