TWIP: Pinball Promoters (beta) Database Coming Soon!
This has been in the works for quite some time and in a few days This Week in Pinball will launch a database that shows all pinball content creators!!
The database will have links to content, social media platforms, contact information, plus links on how to support your favorite content creators (for example, a link to their Patreon page). You can also leave ratings and reviews for each promotor.
This will be a great way to support your favorite Pinball Promoters and find new content you may have not heard about before! Here is a sneak peek on how it will look:
After it launches, if you find a Pinball Promoter that is not included, just message TWIP and we’ll add them. We hope this will be a great resource for the pinball community!
