  • Am I the only one who finds the "picked for you" pins somewhat annoying?  If I want to find something, I'll search it.  I want to see the pins of the folks I follow on my main feed.   I don't need 6 types of the same recipe I've already pinned. If I find I don't like the one I've pinned, I'll search again.

    Ohh!!!! I absolutely HATE those! Hate. Grrr. At one point you could turn them off, but I don't see that option any more.
  • Oh, and now I'm following all of you :)

  • I loathe picked for you! And you have to turn them off for each individual board now, which is such a hassle.

    I wish there was a "Never Show This Stupid Thing To Me Again" button, though. The next time I see someone making a healthy "sandwich" where the bread is a whole, unpeeled cucumber, I'm going to throw something at someone.


    Oh my God, yes.  The first time I saw "cauliflower steaks" I almost snapped my laptop over my thigh.

    Ah - there is a way to turn them off?  Good.

     

    ETA - or, not.  Not finding the option anywhere.  Rats.

    It's not in your account settings - but when you get a picked for you, if you mouse over it, there is a cross - a very faint and hard to see cross - if you click that it gives you the option of hiding all picked for you pins based on that board.

    I got into a bit of a row with them when its predecessor was around. It was called something equally as irritating.

    Thank you!
  • Thank you FoodycatAlicia. That was the best thing I learned all week!

    I hate them too!  I find that is you reject their suggestion and then flag the explanation that it didn't interest you, you never get a suggestion based off of that board again.  Depending on how many boards you have it may take awhile to get rid of that feature from your feed.

    No problem at all!
  • Oh, this is great!  I'm https://www.pinterest.com/rmcgrudiva/  , and I tend to pin fashion, food, and fitness.  (Yeah, I know.)  

    There's jewelry and art in there, too!

    I'm pinning recipes almost exclusively right now.  However, I am feeling inspired to try Stitch Fix based on the recommendation of the Kittentariat, so I might start a board for clothes and personal style so that I can share that with a future stylist.
  • Shore828 is mine and I have several editorial fashion boards, sorted by decades, also home decor, and several others.
  • Mine is mostly fandom related, crafting, interiors, and fashion. I have lots of other boards as my interests are all over the place!

    THIS.  It's driving me crazy.  Pinterest did it once before and I managed to stop it, but now they're doing it again.  If I did a search and I didn't pin it, I DON'T WANT IT.
  • Oh, and hi everyone.  I avoided Pinterest for ages, but when I got hooked, I got seriously hooked.  My interests are all over the place--so I keep a 3-D printing board, a small spaces board, knitting, food, fashion, travel, children's illustrations and a really disorganized DIY board.  Oh, and one on condors and phoenixes.  In other words, very few people have the energy to follow all my boards.

    And I'm M Young on Pinterest.There may be more than one of me, but I think I'm the only one with a board on Naiad/Rusalka Costumes.

  • Bless you @foodycatAlicia for the tip on turning off "picked for you" pins. A bottle of the finest virtual champagne for you!
  • Ugh, when those new "Picked for You!" pins showed up a few weeks back it took me forever to cycle through and turn them off for all my boards. They really should have a setting option for that nonsense. 

    I'm SarahIvy over there, mostly craft/recipes/home/geeky stuff.

    Pinterest is a place for me to dream--lots of art boards, fashion, colors, landscapes, fine arts, whatever takes my interest.

    I collect fashion I like under Annalisanews.
    I couldn't find yours on Pinterest. Is there a typo?
  • I love Pinterest!

    Here's my boards: https://www.pinterest.com/smalltwnfashion/

    I pin everything from fashion to royals to interesting stories I've read. Lately it's been all about the runway shows, with some cute winter outfit ideas thrown in.

    I also like to go back to recipe or hair style pins and comment on if they worked or not. I find trying Pinterest hair ideas to be the quickest way to make me boil with rage (because they usually never work on my hair).
  • @smalltwnfashion I shift things to my "pin there, done that" board when I have made or bought something. I also like to comment on whether things have worked out!
  • @foodycatAlicia I love it when people do that! It definitely helps me out. I may have to start a new board like that too - thanks for the idea!




  • OMG @foodycatAlicia did you pin this fireplace because the shape is....suggestive?


  • Waaaayy too addicted to Pinterest:
