This thread is inspired by the original thread concept by Chris, (monkeybug) long ago on maaca. Walt (Brewmanager) continues the spirit of that thread here with "The Pinball Diaries". (What did you do today) It is mainly a (What did you do in the hobby?) thread. The other part of the thread (that is now split into two threads on maaca) is "The maaca Daily News! Your daily read about you, the members." Both threads were once 1 thread, and now they are 2 threads, and the intent of the thread by monkeybug was great. This thread (two threads now) is how I learned so much about so many members, so much about pinball, so much about everyone I met in this hobby. Enough of the history lesson for now, I can elaborate later on if requested or desired. I started Pinball - Behind the Scenes - The offline World thread with the intention of letting members and readers know about the sense of community, and friendship that exists here. It is a big club, and anyone who wants to participate is welcome. I felt that it was time to end that thread as I had accomplished what I set out to do; increase awareness in some small way regarding the pinball activity that happens offline. We move pinball machines, vids and generally help each out in this hobby wherever we can and are able to. There is no limit to who can participate, we just assist each other and go from there. Having said that, there are stories that are relevant and being written and told that don't currently have a place to go on pbrev just yet. Some are told partially by text offline, some are told on the maaca thread. Since some members only read here, I thought I would add this thread on pbrev. This is about you, about us. Here is: The Daily News! All about the members. I will go first with a story from tonight. Cheers. Enjoy.
