Re: O-Town Throwdown Pinball Tournament @ OPGS 2018 - September 22/23

Anyone who is planning to play in the tournament can save some time with registration by sending me a message to pre-register before Wednesday night. Just include a 4-digit PIN that you'll use to log into the software and your full name. I'll send you your player number and the link to the website. ...

Suggestion for new board: Events

What about creating a section for Events? Right now those threads get lumped into the general MAACA Forum and Chat board, but I think we're starting to have enough to justify a separate board.

Re: Did anyone else get this? L.E.K. Possible Scam/Phishing?

Josh has confirmed that one of the Premiere Sponsors (but not which one) did hire this consulting firm to do some market research on their behalf utilizing the IFPA email list.

Re: Did anyone else get this? L.E.K. Possible Scam/Phishing?

IFPA shares our email addresses with its sponsors. It's most likely that one of those sponsors made use of the list for market research purposes or possibly shared it. Josh Sharpe is looking into it.

Yup, a couple of people who use unique addresses to sign up for sites confirm that it came to the one they use for IFPA.

Re: Did anyone else get this? L.E.K. Possible Scam/Phishing?

Lots of people got it based on a thread posted on Tilt.

I suspect they got our email addresses from IFPA, but Josh Sharpe says that's not the case. Hopefully someone who uses site-specific email addresses will be able to identify the source.

I'll let you know if I learn anything more!

Tentatively in.

Note that this event can’t be IFPA-sanctioned because attendance is restricted. In order to earn WPPR points, the event needs to be open to everyone.

Congratulations to the finalists! Check-in for Main is at 10:45am, Novice has until noon because their round won’t be until Main semi-finals.

Re: Canadian National Pinball Open @ Canada PinCon 2018

Thanks to everyone who has generously offered up games for the tournament! It would be great to have a couple more to keep lines short, so if you plan to bring a game anyway and have one you think will hold up for six hours of play, please consider putting it in the CNPO bank. It may get a lot of pl...
