    This is a great idea and all but what if someone uploads their art and someone steals it/claims it as their own, and sells it here?

    This has nothing to do with this pin, but I was thinking that you should make something where you can clear/delete your messages instead of hiding the message all together. You should do this so people don't have messages with someone piling and piling up. Please do this, if you can.

    I don't want buyable pins, I just want to be able to organize pins within each board (no, the "move pins" button is not what we want)

    I would love to see the option of a having a board within a board. Such as for food but then organize with in the board with options like desserts, appetizers, etc.

    Also would be nice to be able to comment on your own pins, especially for recipes I've made to make notes for myself for next time I make it

    @Heather D--those are very good suggestions! I agree on both.

  • Shellie Morrison
    Shellie Morrison

    @Heather D : If you look at many of the other official Pinterest pins you see the requests for sub-boards are everywhere. It's something pinners have been asking for for a L-O-N-G time. Unfortunately, I seriously doubt they will Ever have them. As far as commenting on your own pins you can already do that. I do it a lot when I can't fit the whole description in. Just click on the pin to open it up and then write your comment underneath the space with your name

    Someone help me, when I click on a pin on a board, normally the background is semi-translusent and , if I cick on it, I can go back to the board I was on , but now that doesn't work anymore.... And, normally, there is an 'x' button on the side of a pin , but now it's not there.....

    It never ceases to amaze me how people ask questions on Pinterest pins that have Absolutely Nothing to do with the pin itself. I see it Every time I visit their site. Asking for sub-folders is a really big one.

    Also, I think sub boards are an amazing idea. Like Holidays-Valentines, Christmas, Halloween. Fandoms- Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings. Food- Bread, Soups, Dessert. Thanks for adding the move feature as well!

    MORE THAN LIKELY THERE WILL NEVER BE SUB-BOARDS. It is the most asked question or request Pinterest receives. And as far as I know Pinterest has Never addressed the question. Check just about Any pin on Any of their boards and you will more than likely see a request for Sub-boards. You'll never see an answer..

    Well that's find and dandy, but this new style you've started is highly inefficient and frustrating. The old pinning style was much easier to use. Now I can only see one of my boards on a tiny pop-up screen instead of the multiple ones I could see with the drop down style pin screen

    I wish it was easier to organize recipes, and other boards as well. It would be nice to be able to add subcategories within boards.

    What LEGIT site forces a redirect without permission? I am fed up with the flow of my internet browsing by being forced out to app in an endless loop that can only be fixed by going back to the browser history. UGH. If I want to go to Pinterest I'll go. I don't want to open the app during a web search. I just deleted the app.

    Apple FortheTeacher, I am so with you!! Unfortunately though, I think you'll find yourself constantly being forced to close iTunes because the Pinterest folks have made it that way if you don't have the app installed

    Jan, you are correct. Hilariously enough (sarcasm) I discovered this for mysel when trying to read your reply. I am still deriving satisfaction from deleting the app. LOL! Now, I'm off to check my blood pressure. Tra la la. Pinterest is so relaxing. :D

    I kno, I'm like a dog that lost its' bone. But the unfairness of not being credited with all my followers is chocking me. Out of the 50+ per day I only get one follower and sometimes none at all. It has taken me over a month to get 81 followers added to my count even though I average over 50 oer day. I WANT ALL MY FOLLOWERS. Come on Pinterest, put the fun back in Pinterest and throw this dog a bone. PUT THE FUN BACK IN PINTEREST and get these drustrated pinners off your

    The promoted pins are everywhere!!! There is way too many and they repeat themselves. Now I'm getting random pins that have no name or little x and there are multiples. Pinterest sucks now because of all these. I get the occasional ad, but not 100 picked for yous that I could care less about.
