I have that book. It's awesome!
Best tell @Calimori that as well then
Someone asked a question and @Neil McRae answered and he was set upon
But one thing is for sure a lot of people came and supported him, he's done a fair lot more for pinball and events in the UK then most people...
If it wasn't for people like @Neil McRae and @Wayne J there wouldn't be many events and socialising going on.
Doesn't matter is someone is longstanding or not, doesn't mean squat apart from the bias the mods show them
If people haven't figured out @Neil McRae sense of banter now beats me, its pretty clear its not done in a malice manner... Just old school banter like @AllstarDK pointed out.
.In the area of enforcement of the rules, the Pinballinfo Team are judge, jury, and executioner. Their decisions are not open for debate, and this is not a democracy. The moderators/admins are NOT to be mocked, ridiculed, called out on or questioned in the public discussion forums. Our moderation (in general) is NOT up for public discussion or to be questioned either. If you have issues with any member of the Pinballinfo Team, take it up in an email or PM

How does anyone decide what a games value is? Personal opinion, we're all allowed them. What I hate seeing is games for sale that I consider overpriced to then have comments of "GREAT PRICE" in the thread, when I consider it not to be. I just don't comment though nor do I overreach with the tools available to me.
All I have tried to do is call out some behaviour and try to get them to explain it further. It just so happens this has been towards Neil because he shares his view the most. 2 threads, over 2 weeks with a hand full of posts.
It has led to others sharing their view on both sides. Let’s talks about that rather than set up divides and maybe we can fix these flair ups long term.
Maybe update your rules. As if the admin or moderators cannot be confronted for the things they say, when one of you deliberately goes out of their way to rile up members, is a pretty damn poor state of affairs.I have that book. It's awesome!
Geoff is doing a sterling job. Rather than just letting things fester, he is all for getting issues out in the open and people airing their views and opinions. Exactly as it should be.
I havent really met Neil "in the flesh" so to speak, however his opinion, however radical people may deem it to be, is his view or opinion. Simple as. And yes, it will provike a reaction... as thats how he likes it.
If you think that the Moderation is biased here then may i suggest you try some of the other FB groups and forums, since this one is about as tolerant and open as you are likely to get.
As per the T&C's -
when one of you deliberately goes out of their way to rile up members, is a pretty damn poor state of affairs.
however the people that have left are most of the South Coast Slam organisers.
1. He's made comments to inflame people. Your other moderator has had to step in to ask for clarification on the comments because he has quite rightly observed the issue and come to the same conclusion.
2. That they've done just as much or probably ten times more for pinball and charity than he has.
I appreciate you run this place but I think maybe you should have a quiet word in the private moderator areas of this forum, as that what I would be doing as an administrator if this was occurring on ukvac.

Christ. I thought we were going to have #neilhurtmyfeelingstoo movement for a moment thereThe point is that supporting the UK pinball scene is not a panacea for creating a cloud of chaos.
Plenty of civilised, pleasant, community minded folk support the UK pinball scene.
Completely missed the point.You may be on UKVAC, however you arent here, and thats the point. And what I/We do as moderators of this forum has, quite frankly, nothing to do with you - Unless it directly affects you of course.
I'm sure that i am right in saying people are sick with the continual flare-ups on here... and that hasnt all been cause by one or two individuals.
As i have said on multiple occasions here, we are very relaxed in our moderation style. The T&C's arent changing - they are perfectly good as they are.
Comments that are made to incite discussions are one thing. Someones opinion is another. Both can be valid. Thats what a forum is all about - being able to have an opinion and (Within reason) say it. Much like i havent deleted or edited yours - you are allowed one too. A lot of people's thoughts on here are THEIR opinions. Wether you like them or not is your call - thats what the ignore button is for. Some may say that you are in contrevention to the T&C's now, however all should have a view. Want to continue? Please feel free to drop me a PM and discuss this outside the forum. Dont like it? You have the right to head off into the sunset should you wish to do so. Continue on this same path, and feel free to see where it leads...
Of course, you have nothing to do with the SCS crew
As it happens, i respect and have utmost time for the guys - ALL of them. We have all separately chatted behind the scenes about this...yes ALL of us, so dont be thinking that what you have seen here is the be all and end all of it as it's not.
