Pinterest lock out??
Has anyone been locked out before? I went to enter a sweeps and of course found out I'm locked out!! Geez.. I seldom use it.. only one sweeps right now!!!

It said I can use a contact form, but can't figure out how to... otherwise I'm supposed to just sit back and wait several days!!!

Same here, and sadly, I am an addict lolol that's where I spend most of my time. I should really get something productive done, but nope, instead I just watch the pretty musicians on youtube.

I got that message today as well. It told me to watch my email in a few days to figure out what to do next. I have had a bunch of random boards I haven't created pop up on my account over the last week or so so I wonder if that is what flagged it

Wow, thank goodness I'm not the only one. I'm so worried that I'll be disqualified from a sweeps because my account is not active.

I've never entered a sweep from PINTEREST, and just use it for my own amusement, and things are fine on my end.

Don't Flatter Yourself.

Mine is fine. I do not use it for sweeps. I love Pinterest and refuse to let sweeps take it over, too. I find so many great recipes and crafts on there.

One thing I have noticed is that some of the pins are linked to spam, porn, or to a dead end. Always make sure you check before repinning something.

YUP, me too. And FYI, I was on there last week and noticed a board that I had not created it was ways to make money. I tried to delete it and kept coming back. I have only entered a few sweeps via pinterest, but I'm convinced that's where the lock out came from.

I'm locked out too and have noticed things on my board that I didn't put there. It's odd, too, that I can get in from links on some blogs but not on others.

Mine is fine and I use it only for sweeps. No weird pins have shown up yet.

Yep, I had the how to make money board on mine too. I had a bunch of boards I didn't create on my account that I had to keep removing. It must be a sweep that we all entered using our Pinterest name. I suppose the ones that aren't affected did not enter that particular sweep.

Hopefully this all gets sorted soon.
