    Hiya everyone,

    Latest enhancement - Reviews.

    Review a Machine. A Mod. A Part....

    We all know that in the world of pinball, Stuff is expensive. Like really expensive.

    So - if you have spent all your cash on something, why not tell everyone what you think? You can post a review, comment on others, or comment asking the poster to explain something!!

    This feature is open to Site Supporters only.
    Everyone can read your reviews, however only Site supporters can post them!


    It's new, so if anyone can provide any suggestions on how to improve it, or suggest additional categories then please let me know!

    It can be found in the navigation bar at the top.

    Try it - Please keep it serious though!

    Thanks
    Paul

    I think Tools would be a useful category - can point people at it when they ask about DMMs, Soldering stations etc.

    Can existing reviews (like @windoesnot review of the LED OCD for example) be retrospectively added or tagged as a review?

    I think the main problem with reviews was this bit :

    "This feature is open to Site Supporters only.
    Everyone can read your reviews, however only Site supporters can post them!"

    It should be the other way around - these tight wad non-supporters should be writing content for us supporters to enjoy ;)
