I take it you mean operators of retro machines such as Arcade Club, RGP  etc? people who have interests in machines like we have but operate them as a business?

What are your concerns to ask such a question?

Well... it’s a mighty coincidence that after you got upset about Andy purchasing a console on an arcade forum, you went on to make this post. I’m sure you are a stand up guy, but this behaviour is not setting a good example.

How about hoarders? Who have a bunch of stuff switched off for decades with a mere hint of a human touch? Flippers and breakers can definitely go.

Sorry. This thread can only be toxic. I’m sorry for the whole affair. Kiss and make up everyone. Been told by a few people that you are a top dude Griffo.

If it wasn't for ops we wouldn't have cabs and boards in our collectons. I don't see how you'd stop them or why you'd want to.

My opinion for what its worth. I think everyone should be aloud on here, Its a community of people who enjoy arcade cabs. I agree flippers can sod off !!! They are not ' Collectors ' and are not concerned about the preservation of games but rather how much they can make. Arcade ops are keeping the games going and preserving them so I think it would be rather silly to try and Ban them from being on here. I think the question should be ' Why should ops NOT be aloud on here ?? '. 

Dave.

P.S Don't shoot me for my opinion , You are welcome to your own.

P.S.S Ops are collectors are they not ??

Not sure it matters tbh... its the fastest finger first, so that could be collector or operator and if you are not fast enough then you move on.

And there not any rules about posting in the thread to claim an item... its the sellers decision who he sells to and that could be from someone, posting in the thread, private messaging or calling on the phone... its up to them. Its not for the forum to dictate who someone should sell to...

Arcade Club is a fecking amazing thing, and I’m in now way upset if my stuff is sold to help build on that. It’s something for everyone I guess :D

It takes all kinds of animals to make up a jungle and the jungle needs all the animals to co exist to maintain an equilibrium.

The more that gets sold on here means more people will look to the forum as a viable outlet over Ebay , Gumtree etc.

what we do need to shake off is this "forum pricing" waffle, yes we can have a bit of a deal with each other on here and help each other out with bits and bobs but a machine has a market value and that's what I would expect it to sell for not for less just because its on this forum.

All this does is make people shuffle off to other selling mediums to ask the market value and it ends up in the hands of non forum members.

If a cabs market value is a grand on ebay then it should be for sale at £900+ on here due to the removal of charges not any less in my eyes.

Of course operators should be allowed on the forum.

I think that was humour.
Chill Griffo. I’ll see if I can source another PC Engine for you through the shop. Is there anything else you are after?
