I upgraded PinTips ( http://pintips.net/ ) this morning and I thought it would be of general interest to this forum since the upgrades are features requested by people using the site and not just stuff I make up in my head:
- Recent Tips page: Show the latest 100 tips added so you can follow along with all the new stuff
- Player profile: Now shows all tips from that player, sorted with the newest first
- League profile: Now shows all the members of that league
I have to remember to thank all the contributors! Only 80 more tips before the site reaches 1000 pintips! I’m using pintips even on games I feel I know pretty well to remind myself how things work as I step up to a game.
Fun fact: Only one tip is in the “illegal move” category. Can you find it?
Pinbot vortex multiplier cheat, apparently. I have to admit I didn’t know about that one.
I’m not sure if it’s possible, but I think it would be useful to have an edit function for tips that you have personally authored. For instance, I am catching a few errors in some of the tips I submitted and I’d like to correct them. I see you can push for an edit via the “Flag” button, but I’m guessing these need to be looked at and approved by someone because the change I made has not gone through yet. A bit cumbersome in that regard and I’d hate causing work for someone else because of mistakes/misinformation I am responsible for.
You should be able to edit your tip within 60 minutes. Are you not seeing a little “edit” link next to a tip you have just submitted?
When you flag something you do have to wait for someone (well, me) to look at the report and click a button
Gotcha… I don’t think I have seen the “edit” button yet after posting a tip, but I have been bouncing from game to game pretty quickly. The ones I wanted to edit were a week old, which probably explains why the option wasn’t available when I needed it.
Clicking the “Find on Pinball Map” shows me the HTML source of some page for a few seconds, then reverts to the “PinTips is determining your position” overlay. Seems to be reproducible in all the random browsers I found on this PC I’m on right now.
IE9 doesn’t seem to respond to any clicks on any machine name.
I don’t know if there’s some other dedicated public place for bug reports, so I’m just writing here. This is an awesome resource, and I hope it will make those secretive tip things obsolete in no time.
Can you email me at email@example.com with the info around geolocation (screenshots, browser version etc)?
For IE9 I can say off the bat that you should upgrade to something newer. I can’t write software for a 5 year old browser unless someone is paying me big bucks and PinTips is paying exactly zero dollars
Sure thing, the IE9 issue just came up while checking out the other thing on this PC that isn’t mine (I swear ;))
1000 tips . I’ve also been checking it before tournaments even if I know the game, loving it.
