    Sad to see the forum go, but a big Thanks! to Gord and all the mods. This was a fun, informative, and positive community during a great era for digital pinball. Big Thanks! to all the active community members over the years too for keeping the conversations interesting.

    Yes, thank you all who are and were involved to make this forum happen. Maybe when Pinball FX becomes a smash hit, a forum like this will open again. I remember the good old days when Farsight released a new pack regularly and everybody was jumping on it and talking about it. Those were the days. But it's true, if you're on PS4 or Switch, there isn't really much to talk about these days.

    It would be great if this forum could be archived somewhere for posterity.

    It's sad the forum will be gone. But there is no surprise: at least for a Mac user, there is no more. Dunno about other platforms. And the wish to play real pinball is almost gone.

    One pinball repair guy told me that when people are visiting his basement, they *all* want to play, but none want to insert a coin. Huumpf!
    and now … I can nudge.

    If anyone is interested in saving threads it looks like in Edge browser you literally just need to go into a thread, right-click, and save the page. It'll save all the comments and images. Might be like that for other browsers too but worked so well in Edge I didn't need to look elsewhere.

    I had created a few image heavy threads covering the various pinball expos and retocades around the Chicago area I had wanted to save. And now that I moved far away from the Chicago area these threads are even more precious to me. Plus I haven't been to any type of pinball expo since Covid hit so it's got me fired up to go to the ones around here.

    Here's a few of my retro threads covering these places:
    http://www.digitalpinballfans.com/sh...inball-Museum)
    http://www.digitalpinballfans.com/sh...(Schamburg-IL)
    http://www.digitalpinballfans.com/sh...West-Dundee-IL

    Vintage Flipper World may not last too many more years as rumors of a buyout of the land is going around. Wanted to go this year but just couldn't make it happen. Will truly miss that place if it goes. Best pinball experience ever.
    Level 257 doesn't exist anymore but think the location is still there under a different ownership
    Underground Retrocade is still there it looks like they added Black Knight: Sword of Rage and The Mandalorian.

    Is there any other threads people are saving that others should save too? A good thread to show how the community was at its peak, warts and all?

    You can use https://archive.org/web/

    I've used it to save a handful of threads that weren't already saved, not sure how easy it is to find them afterwards though.

    Thank you very much for all the things digital pinball! I was just a lurker for the most part over the last 10 years, but I enjoyed my time here very much!

    Thanks to Gord, FarSight, and all the forum members that made this such a cool place to hangout and talk pinball. We had a lot of fun, and that’s not easy to find in this world today. It was a great ride. I will miss y’all.

    I couldn't juggle two silk scarves, even if you pointed a gun to my head. I can however, keep four silver orbs on an inclined plane for an uncanny amount of time.

    Thank you for your work, Gord. DPF has been very inspirational and with tons of good advice - actually I'm gonna try to save some of the tips and tricks until the end of July (also thank you, contributors).
    But since Farsight has abandoned pinball and Zen is managing it's own social media, maybe it's just time to move on.

    Can I also add my thanks to Gord and Everyone on here. I was always a lurker, but I've really enjoyed it and will be sad to see it go.

    Starting the Last Week!

    I would also like to echo what others have been saying here: Thanks so much to Gord, the moderators, and all the members for making this a great place to discuss Digital Pinball!

    It's a shame that FarSight fell off the face of the earth after losing the Williams/Bally license; and then Covid plus the migration to a new platform slowed updates from Zen to a trickle for two years.
    That -- in my opinion -- is what really killed the Forum.

    But it was *great fun* in its heyday!
