Reliable sources[edit]

Is there a running list of pinball-related reliable sources somewhere? The links on the WikiProject page appear to be antiquated because we don't accept primary sources and user-submitted forums as sources in our articles I am no longer watching this page—ping if you'd like a response czar 17:45, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

At least most books listed here should be a reliable source. --Tochni (talk) 17:15, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

About a certain machine[edit]

I was watching (Dutch) TV this morning and saw a pinball machine by Williams called (I believe) Student Prince. It's not listed on Wikipedia and I wanted to know if there's anybody out there who could tell me more. It was a machine from the 50s or 60s because it still had those little bells for sound effects and mechanical a score card. How old is this machine, how many were made..? Anybody?

Here you find information about it: http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=2408 --Tochni (talk) 11:57, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
I'm bounded by a white-list and can't click the link... I know that's my problem, not yours, but still... Sorry man... OXYGENE 7-13 (TALKPAGE) 11:59, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
The game is from 1968 and 3,502 units were made. It was inspired by the operetta The Student Prince. --Tochni (talk) 12:13, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
Allright! Thanx man! My personal problem with the TV show this morning was that it was a kids program where children are allowed to totally take apart a big electronic or mechanical device. This episode it was the pinball machine mentioned above!!! Such a waste... 3.502 units is pretty rare, especially when this thing is that old. But once again, thank you very much for the provided information. OXYGENE 7-13 (TALKPAGE) 12:41, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
