Pinball Nirvana Site Donations

I was recently reminded that the Pinball Nirvana Donations link disappeared from the site when we had to remove the front page, it will probably return when we get a replacement.

Paypal Pinball Nirvana Donation Link

I'd like to Thank All of the site supporters, it covers folks that have ever made donations to the site in the past dozen years and sometimes folks are just added due to their help with the site, Site Supporters usernames are usually purple.

A special Thanks to Coil_Smoke and to GSGregg who sent a donation right After I announced that the site was closing.

Thank You All!

PN is back and the donations stop coming???
Okay. Your dog ate your wallet or something.

I note that Jon rarely asks for donations. But I would.

Looks like the site is going to be staying for a while. :)

I also discovered that 100 dollars CDN doesn't go as far as it use to. ;)

I know a lot of people don't care at the other forum (couldn't even mention it, could we?) but the site's value is in how the people view it, not by how many. Should be a upgrade here pretty soon, so no one panic. :)

Jon, you should be purple or even gold.
He's a admin, and there's no color set to that, but it overrides every other setting. So am I actually (forgot about that one totally, I've filled in for him a couple times) but I am pretty sure everyone will get their pretty colors when the update happens.

It doesn't have to be much Itchigo, and you know, I haven't had the money myself.
All it takes is that little bit from you or me, and get more people to do it.

What about a mail address for those of us who don't have a bank account or who don't trust online money transfers? Did that work out for the old forums at all?

Just got my new job yesterday, hopefully that means PN and Rogue will be around for a while. After all, SOMEONE has to fight the forces of evil....

I know he is. That was just the image that came to mind when I made that statement.

Itchy, you read the weirdest romance books! I wasn't even aware that Meatloaf was writing them! :D

  • @ Ike Savage:
    where is the unapprove option, anyway? is that a super mod thing or something from the admin panel?

  • @ Ike Savage:
    oh wait, I see it
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    true, but they could also be invisible to users and perhaps allow the category to be removed
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Don't know, do know that if you delete a category all files would also be removed so that's bad,
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    seems like we discussed it in some length at one point and came up with the current arrangement, but I don't have a strong opinion on that stuff. the one thing I do like is that I can clear out weaker tables from the main section without deleting them
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Sounds fine to me Ike, can't disagree with ya!
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    is it that you want to declutter more of the resources section?
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No it's fine
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    also, just to be clear-- the issue with "unapprove" is that you don't know if the table actually gets deleted from the server, right? AFAIK I have no way of seeing where the tables actually lie on the server, so it's something I can't test effectively
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    They wouldn't get deleted from the server, I don't think.
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Can we get back to the subdomain folders/files, the uploads.pinballnirvana.com folder is where uploads would need to be, just wondering what might need to be deleted..
    Quote
  • @ Ike Savage:
    do you mind a phone call? probably easier to discuss, save some wear and tear on my hands, too
    Quote
  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    No problems Ike, can't talk now but will try and set this up.

  • @ Ike Savage:
    okay, well let me know if you need space cleared up across the torrent area, because I have some ideas

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    Yeah, noticed a .zip file contains many versions etc..

    Uploading a 1.34 GB Pink Floyd The Wall zip file via ftp to test...

  • @ JonPurpleHaze:
    The file is actually on the server in FP originals but isn't public.

  • @ Anthias:
    Um, so, Hi!. What did I miss? (he says as though he ducked to the toilet while the adds were on...)
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Hi guys, I«m asking here as it might have a quicker response. How can I check the ball size used by authors in FP? or at least the default size if anyone knows. Thanks
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    Most FP authors use the default size and don't know how to use BAM to alter it.
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    I think it may be 13.8 though
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    Thanks. But while I've waited I've looked at a ring around a ramp in LotR that's 26mm so i figure the ball being 24mm. A bit short of real life ball size if that's so.
    Quote
  • @ AnonTet:
    of course I could've used my brains earlier and create a table with some carefully spaced guides and check that the ball is in fact 27mm in diameter. Peeking at fp.exe and bam.dll and there's no way to change this. you can set the colour and the id to track it though (but that's known)
    Quote
  • @ Gimli:
    With Bam custom ball coding you can create balls of any size...see my titorial
