    There is something seriously wrong with the site or the host. Get a page response, then nothing for another 20 minutes and your logged out again.

    This HAS seemed to have happened in the past, at least the past 2 years, before the Pin Event. Maybe the increased activity on the site overloads the server??

    Anywho.... Not only can I not stay on PinPics but, my Internet provider has been spending DAYS working on an outage in our area!! Thank goodness for a reliable 4G connection and an unlimited plan on my phone!! :) Otherwise I wouldn't know WHAT is happening here. :tigger:

    PinPics is unmatched for older pins, but if you want a place to keep track of newer trades and wants, pintradingdb.com is amazing. It's so up to date (largely thanks to @starry_solo), and adding pins is super easy (and immediate!).

    Aww, thanks! Yes, I'm trying to keep them up to date. Luckily there are a few people that allow me to use any of their eBay pics, including DPF user @mydpins :) and @watzshakinbacon provides great pics of the DSSH pins.

    So, my hope is that I can get older pins from My D Pins too :D

    I'm really lucky when it comes to PTDB: you've uploaded your Mulan pins so there's entries for all of my wants! :)

    LOL, I am sure there are a few I haven't taken pictures for! Sometimes I get lazy and don't want to remove the pins from the bags so that the picture would be the pin by itself ;)

    Flickr user DRJ1828 lets me use his pictures too, when he buys pins! :D

    Lately I can get PinPics to kind of work on my phone, and not really at all on the desktop. I hope it is resolved soon :(

    I have no idea @MasteringMatt , @ryanfury created it a few years ago. Right now, we have about 17000 pins listed there but the plan is for it to keep growing, etc.

    I bugged @ryanfury to see if he can make it a secure website too. We will see what happens.

    Thanks! We definitely need photos of pins.

    Pin Trading Database NEEDS your photos!

    If you have any older pins, that would be great too.

    I made a list of the ones I couldn't find, so I'll try to add those over the next few weeks. Gotta do my part for the Mulan Army. :D

    What makes you think I'm working on a zap for you? It's not like you just had a birthday or anything...

    Issues continuing today. :(
    Earlier this week, I was able to log in and get to pages by reloading them, but for the past few days reloading is not working at all.
    Today I am able move around the gallery (with difficulty and black boxes cover part of or all of some of the pins in the gallery), but I cannot log in at all. Logging in takes me to the white screen of death.

    @PinPics_Ambassador Are there any updates on Pin Pics? Seems odd that it has been down so long.

    Pinpics couldn't be giving alternate pin trading databases a better gift right now. If current users come to realize that pinpics isn't going to be there when we need it and that the site isn't reliable, they will flock to other options. I know pinpics doesn't see this as a crisis, but it really could become one...

    Personally, I would boycott/avoid all of their other stuff (Pinopolis games, pin trading events, etc.) until they put the focus and effort into fixing the PinPics site. While it is not a direct revenue sources for them, it is vital to us collectors to stay in touch with this hobby. I did "systems" work for over 25 years and trust me, the issue that is going on now can be resolved very quickly, if desired. Obviously they choose to spend their time and effort in other areas. The fact that they"do not own the servers" is not an excuse to have your premier entry point to the hobby crippled and out of service.
