Default Post Your First Post !

What first brought you to PINBALL NIRVANA ?
August 2012, I was looking for help with Pin_Bot flash lamps that kept burning out. Apparently I said I'd report back... So, in the better late than never category; Yes the high voltage #1251 flashlamps did the trick. So thank you "hgpinball" for that advice...C_S

Is there a higher voltage lamp that will fit these sockets in my game? Or Is something else amiss ?

i'm not even sure how to find it. any way i try to search, there seems to be a max of 500 results. that doesn't work for me, even sorting by threads.

anyway when this site first started, it was a VP specialty site for flipperless games... so my first post was probably very similar to steve's.

My first post cited the differences between Full Tilt!'s and Windows' versions of Space Cadet in reply to 'Lucy's "What's your High Score" topic, but this one, my ninth, seems to be more fun. Topic: "Just had to post this somewhere....."

Yeah, I don't think I like this game. My first post was me blathering on about something that didn't have anything to do with pinball. I know! Weird, right?

That turned out to be a pretty good decision! Never doubt the powers of an Aussie who's seen a magpie up-close and personal!

On the top right of the page.
Where it says Welcome, and has your name.
Click your name.
Then click the statistics tab.

You can see all your posts in chronological order and threads you started all nice and neat no need to search.

Oh yeah, and you can click anyone's name in a thread, go to their profile and do the same thing.

Easy peasy.



Edit : It works everywhere else but here. Apparently Jon has added some limit of return from the DB. Apologies.

Yeah, but as Nic said it stops at 500.
We qualify because we are below the threshold and everyone with over 500 posts will only get last 500.

Dunno why Jon has it set up that way.

True, but the advanced search option is pretty nifty even by today's forum standards. Wish I'd known about it before last weekend. Your way is the way I've been doing it for the last 10 years, Prez!

LOL! Sounds like someone wants to take me on in those soon-to-be-mandatory Trigon tournaments! Trigon was the first original table that just blew me away. But not the last. Does anyone here remember the name of that cat who made the Wallace & Gromit table? He also did one called Card Sharks that I swear played like it was a lost late-'70s Bally table. That game was probably the most addicting original I played. It was hard as hell to rack up all 52 cards!

Yes loved Card Sharks, was really well done as were all of his creations, though yes Card Sharks gets my vote.

Nice thread, loving our beginnings!

My first post is really the start but I must confess that I started this site for downloads and tiltjlp's perceived lack of flipperless tables on vpforums. I later added forums (phpbb) to make John happy and these earlier posts are imported phpbb posts.

The old vpforums at that time were starting to restrict how much stuff you can download and my mission was to allow unrestricted downloads, I'm most proud of the fact that since I got involved with VP sites, including IRPinball (over 13 years ago) nobody ever needs to login to PN or IRP to download files, there has never been a login requirement and many guests have discovered Pinball.

Welcome to Magic Pinball Forums! - Pinball Nirvana Forums Welcome to Magic Pinball Forums! - Pinball Nirvana Forums


I eventually convinced John that I thought that Magic and Pinball don't work together.
