Desperate Pinterest HELP

No card for now, but I have a request for help with one of my Pinterest boards. What's happening is kind of freaking me out...and I'm not getting any response from Pinterest.

Someone is pinning on my "Card Inspiration" board. I have never followed this person, nor pinned one of her pins. I've tried Pinterest "help." They are exactly NO help. If I roll over one of this person's pins on my board, or click on it, no little pencil pops up to edit this pin. I blocked her yesterday, not out of meanness, but just to stop the pins. FOUR more appeared today!!! She's still blocked. This may not be her fault, so I don't want to mention her name, nor do I want to contact her at this point. All I want, is to stop her pins from appearing on my board. If anyone out there can offer advice or solutions, I would be ever grateful.

While this pinner might be the nicest person on earth, I don't want her pins on my board. It feels like I'm being invaded. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Bev

I have no advice, Bev, but I hope you can get this cleared up soon!

Yikes - I am sure this is an innocent glitch. Can you "see" her Board as different from yours?

When you go to "Edit Board" there is a section for "who can add Pins" - does her name/information appear there? If it does, you should just be able to delete it (but why it would be there if you didn't add her is still a mystery).

From what I have read, Blocking her should have stopped any addition Pinning (?).

If Pinterest isn't answering you, I'd probably repin everything to a new board and delete the original one, but depending on how many Pins you have that could be a huge job (I don't know if you can copy a whole board).

I love Pinterest, but would be very frustrated if this happened to me - good luck!

I guess u should try and change ur login information on pinterest... basically reset ur password. Hope this helps! if it doesn't let me know I'll find something out :)

Geez, is it me? I hope not! I've never even heard of this, Bevie. It does sound like it's a crossed wire at the Pinterest end. I mean I know when I click to pin something and fill out the description, I just hit save, but I never check to make sure it landed in my board. I'm sorry I can't help, but you have my sympathy and please let us know what the solution was when you find one. Hugs, Darnell

Okay...I'm basically dumb as a bag of hammers when it comes to Pinterest...

...BUT my sister is THE Pinterest Queen of The World & will likely know how to help! She's unavailable until Sunday night, so if this problem ain't fixed by then, let me know and I will ask her for ideas/help.

Oh my - invasion indeed, and totally understand why this is freaking you out! I do have Pinterest boards, but pin rarely. I prefer Evernote. Looks like Geri has the #1 expert at her fingertips! Keep us posted!! Hugs~c

Miss Bev...no fun at all and I can definately understand why you feel invaded. But it does sound like help is on it's way and I hope all gets fixed. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

That is crazy Bev. I am not sure I would even ever know ,if and how anyone would be doing that. Hopefully it is all just one big glitch and not done on purpose. Sorry!

Marybeth said...

I was just reading a few of the comments and loved Darnell's comment ... Is it me......I so know what she means. Oh that made me laugh!

Anita in France said...

How very bizarre and unsettling, Bev ... especially when what you've done to stop it doesn't work. Sorry I don't have an answer ... but fingers crossed Geri's sister will be able to share some advice to get it sorted. Hope it's not me either! Hugs, Anita :)

Poor you- what a mystery. Hope you get it cleared up. Certainly I'd have mentioned the suggestions already posted. What I really want to know...is does she have the same good taste? Are her pins decent or naff 😋. Hope you don't mind me smiling at the situation ( which I'm sure is plain annoying!!) Xx
