Baking fruit machine boards in the oven...

One of the most questionable and baffling fruit machine repair ideas I've ever heard of.

Perhaps I'm out of touch...

Spurious and fraudulent paypal disputes and claims

23 September 2017 - 02:47 PM

The site unfortunately gets a regular supply of paypal disputes and claims started against it.


Sometimes this is because a donation takes longer than normal to approve. Whilst I can understand that this might be frustrating, in 99% or more of these cases the donator fails to try to contact me about it before they raise the issue with Paypal.


We fight all spurious and fraudulent disputes and claims strenuously and thoroughly, and we do not lose. However this takes up far too much of the little time that I personally have in which I could be working on this site.


If you start such a claim then you can expect us to take appropriate punitive actions necessary to protect the site and the company which exists to keep it funded. If appropriate and where legally possible to do so we will make evidence available to Paypal, banks and credit card providers, the police and Action Fraud.


If you have a problem then contact me first - via a PM or through the Support Console:


Site downtime today

01 February 2017 - 09:39 PM

Apologies for the downtime today, this was due to an essential component being incompatible with a new version of PHP.

Thank you to PeteW for sorting it out.

As it's been a pretty good year (for emulation and for the site, anyway!) and because our members can be relied on for their willingness to support good causes, I thought we should revive an old tradition and have a raffle, with all proceeds going to a charity voted for by the membership.


I'll be raffling (at least) a Gold, Silver and Bronze membership (or upgrade) - if anyone else can offer a (preferably virtual) service that they are willing to give away as a prize, please let me know.


We will need to sort out some details, such as the method of payments, seeing as my Paypal account attracts fees we will need to come up with some other method I imagine.


Please feel free to nominate your favourite charity below - in a few days I will set up a poll to decide which charity or charities the proceeds will be chosen.
