Re: Please do not advertise items in the Forum

But the problem is that when I try to sell an item on the auction page, I get a message saying "your password is incorrect" , even though it is the exact same password that I used to log in to post this message. So if you can't get your website working properly, and I can't sell a machine in the onl...

Re: Anniversary of Kennedy's assassination

I'm just saying that you are making a bit of an embarrassment of yourself by constantly obsessing about your conspiracy theories on a forum which is ostensibly about coin-operated amusement machines. There are hundreds of forums on the internet dedicated to David Icke and the giant lizards, the fake...

Re: Anniversary of Kennedy's assassination

Do you really think that your conspiracy theory obsession about something which happened over 50 years ago adds anything to discussion about amusement machines or enhances this forum in any way?

Item is still for sale, it just won't now be sold to a member of this forum.

Re. Please do not advertise items in the Forum

If a moderator wishes to move or remove this post, then that's fine. I have a machine for sale and I thought that somebody here might want to buy it.

Re: Williams Straight Flush Pinball expertise needed please!

Hi, I have restored around a dozen Gottlieb and Williams electro-mechanical machines. I may be able to help.

Re: A letter to eBay UK?

If you want to sell a machine then surely you should buy a permit. Well, there's too much taxation as it is, and I certainly disagree that anyone selling a pre-decimal one-armed bandit should have to pay the Government £25 for the privilege. Having said that, I am currently applying for a permit, t...

Re: A letter to eBay UK?

It has been a hobby blessed with great natured and generous folk for the 30+ years that I have been involved with it, but now there is a collector who is causing ebay members to have their accounts flagged or suspended in order that he can buy machines at less than market value, and when I find out ...

Re: A letter to eBay UK?

It seems to me that there are two things which can be taken as a given about the individual who is reporting these machines to ebay. Firstly, they aren't doing it through altruistic reasons, otherwise they would report all listings of slot machines.They are trying to get specific machines withdrawn ...
