G'day from Australia

Postby richie » Thu Aug 25, 2016 5:27 pm

I love everything coin-op and had this site recommended to me by an avid admirer of coin-op, long time collector and member.
Upon joining I had to answer a question....something like "what's the name of a coin operated music machine?" I put Juke Box and it was wrong. The next question was right so all is good and I look forward to learning and reading about fellow collectors' games :)

Howdy and welcome aboard.
There's plenty to read and oodles of advice here.
Please read The Four Sticky Posts in Announcements and also have a play with The Search Facility ..... even we forget what's on here.

I'm fascinated by your comment ....
"Upon joining I had to answer a question....something like "what's the name of a coin operated music machine?" I put Juke Box and it was wrong. The next question was right so all is good " ..... are you talking about when you joined this site?

He is. I set up these questions a while ago to keep the !!SPAM!! bots from joining. Seems to work quite well, but must admit I'd forgotten about it. I've now told it to recognise Juke Box as well as jukebox. !THUMBS!

:WELCOME: Richie. Two more questions (you don't have to answer these though) - what types of machines do you prefer and what got you interested?

Good Strewth'ness Mr P, all I can say is that it's a good job there weren't any such tricksy questions when I joined back when Victoria was a child.

Why can I hear a muffled chorus of "If only!!" ?

I'm scared to answer as I suspect it has something to do with .....
*Balls
*Inserting
*Flicking
...... please delight me by surprising me otherwise (Ahh! ... perhaps it was that!)

Mr P.
If others had to answer questions concerning Juke Boxes or even Jukeboxes to join here, what was the idea behind me, a bowl of trifle and a goat? :!?!:
