Great idea - but you should require some sort of screenshot as burden of proof even if it's just a copy of the high score on the backglass display after the game - just to cut down on potential abuse.

It's a pretty sad thing that someone would cheat at pinbal for a higher score but it's a fact. (the Counterstrike mod for Halflife is a prime example) It's just too easy to load up or make a modded table, get some mega score, quit and load up the original table for the screenshot.
Personally I was hoping someone would start a high score page but the thought of the cheaters killed it.

People doing this are cheating themselves. I rely on the people, the Pinball scene is not as big as the cps2 scene so the lamers will probably stay away.

By the way, there is an update to my page, WiGGi has done a good job :-)
