Pinball has a long history of welcoming outsiders. Not a jock or a nerd? No prob, plenty of room at the arcade for everyone. Look around at any pinball show and you'll see these people. Pinball is loaded with 'odd' people. These people have no problem using technology. They just don't want to be on FB. There are plenty of people in the hobby like this. Sure the noobs are all over FB. They're young and everyone else their age is doing it.
Maybe you guys could survey people at shows. I bet 10% or more of the community isn't on FB. This specific incident isn't a big deal, but then I read here that game titles for PAPA are being released on FB. I looked and I can see the info there, but there's a big login screen blocking the view. Not user friendly.
Looking at the bigger picture, have you tried playing in a match play tourney lately without a smart phone? You're at a disadvantage without one. So now we need to carry a smart phone and have a FB login to keep up with the Jones'? That's not even talking about costs. What's the cheapest someone could spend to compete in a circuit event? This hobby used to be for everyone. Now it's moving in a more eletist direction. Not good.
At a minimum, I would hope that PAPA would copy and paste all the info posted on FB to the website. I worked for HP for 20'years. Plenty tech savvy. Could probably teach Kevin a thing or two. I'll never be on FB, thanks.
