    When I wrote about nudity no one in administration cared, researched, responded or stood up to the pinner.

    I understand your frustration. It took 2 weeks of submitting trouble tickets on a daily basis before Pinterest implemented filters and they revamped their customer service response dept as well. Now when I contact them, I typically receive a response within 48 hours. Hang in there!

What Not To Do On Pinterest - Write On Track

    Hi, I have been on Pinterest for about 5 week and just got my first telling off for over pinning. I didn't even pin that many and yet last night someone pinned 40 pins off one board in one go. Should I be mad? I'm not but maybe I don't understand the rules. Would love some advice

    Hi Julie, I posted above. I've been here since the site started, and this whole "don't overpin" thing is relatively new. I don't understand why the people who get so upset about the repining don't make their boards private, since the whole design of Pinterest is set up to facilitate sharing and repinning. I guess it's individual. I couldn't care less if someone repins 100 of my pins, but some folks get very bent out of shape about it.

  • Marya

    ...As we said above, the best thing to do if you worry about someone griping at you is to click through to the website itself, and pin from there, rather than repinning from the another user's board. I stop following anyone who complains about repinning. Like we said in the posts above, it's impossible to keep track of whether someone restricts their repins to 6, or 10, or 20... If they're that picky, for me it's easier to unfollow them.

    Thanks for your comment Marya. Feeling heaps better. Found the accusation of Copying embarrassing. Will not pin that person anymore. Once again, your comments were a great help

    I think it's a bit more complicated than some pinners are mean and some aren't. Some topics are very niche and difficult to source info /images for. Take some and then go do some of your own research. You should use the net as well as here. Don't take all your pins from one pinner, find others. Copying too many from one takes away the individuality of boards.
