    You got rid of two user friendly features that made using pinterest easy, now it's just annoying. Bring back the scroll up button and the ability to change a board's cover by hovering over it rather than having to go to the edit page. Super lame changes. You went from great to mediocre.

    Any chance you guys could bring back the 'pinned from' button. Seeing where people got the pin was great, because you could trace a nerd pin through all of these other nerd boards. It made finding similar boards so much easier. Not Evey pin gets repined, so just seeing repins isn't as great

    How do you send Pinterest a note? So many ideas for improving Pinterest. You came up with one of them on you own, when you started allowing for moving many pins at once from one board to another. Thank you for that!

    Also, I'd like to contact Pinterest for help with problems--yesterday I was reorganizing a board with about 1200 pins on it, moving groups of related pins together within the board. Suddenly a bunch of the pins fell off the (chronological) beginning of the board. I scroll to the bottom and they aren't there anymore. Any way to get those pins back?

    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 have 2 boards that have been completely emptied. Then I got an email fom Pinterest saying something about boards being removed. It wasnt anything to do with me however there was some kind of complaint. I didnt really understand it but now I see these 2 boards I had full of stuff are now empty. What is with that? Your HELP link isnt people friendly so I dont even know where to go to get an answer to my problem.

  • Allison Thompson

    I work VERY HARD to make my boards interesting and creative. I have no problem at all if someone wants to repin 1 or 2 pins. However, I get very upset when people use my pins so they do NONE OF THE WORK. Real Pinners add where they are from or which social media they are one. AGAIN, today some woman named Faith Meo repinned 20 of my pins. She has no info, no profile, I do not know how to contact her, so I blocked her. How do you get in touch with another pinner ?

    I liked your move, when you acquired Icebergs. I was hoping for a free service, where I could save all my favourite websites. But what was happening with your new Extension? I could only save images from websites, but what I really need is to save whole websites. Me, as an Interaction Designer needs a visual collection of his inspirations links, that's what icebergs provided. So please add the possibility to save a whole websites.

    To be able to move multiple pins at one time. Similar to the gallery on Galaxy. You can select every picture you want to move to another folder, etc and move them all at once.

    Also, I want to add one particular pinner to be able to post to 20 of my secret boards. I have to actually add her to each one separate, she gets 20 emails and has to accept 20 times. I would like to be able to add her to numerous boards just by selecting the boards all in one step.

    I agree with Joanne. Get hysterectomy ASAP. You will be put on estrogen. Just be careful because it has been proven to cause cancer. My sister-in-law had residual cancer left over from breast cancer for over 10 years, didn't know it, and was on a double dose of estrogen. Oncologist said it contributed to the recurring cancer and is giving her meds to get it out of her body. You do not have to take it. Just ask your doctor if it is safe for you.
