Hello! My name is Jeff and I am editor and creator of This Week in Pinball. First off, thank you so much for reading TWIP, and thank you to all of you who have sent emails and feedback, you all make the site better.

As the site has grown, I am spending 30+ hours a week on it. It doesn’t seem that long (except maybe to my wife…) because I enjoy it.

I started This Week in Pinball because I love pinball. As it started to grow, I knew I’d eventually have to monetize the site to keep it sustainable.

I am humbly asking for you to consider supporting TWIP to help us keep the site running.

As a monthly supporter of TWIP, you'll receive TWIPerks such as free TWIP swag, early access to exclusive pinball news, automatic entries into each month's giveaway extravaganza, which include everything from free pinball machines, to the coolest mods, to rare and limited items, to gift cards to pinball companies, signed translites, etc., etc.  No purchase is necessary for the giveaways.

What are TWIPerks? It is a corny combination of TWIP and Perks. TWIP Perks. TWIPerks. My wife suggested shortening it to TWERKS
