    Hi! Anyone notice that the Acme/HotArt Kingdom Castles I collection is suddenly "missing" from PinPics??

    I know because the Cinderella Castle #131478 is now missing from my Collection!!! I checked the other Princesses too and, they are all "missing".

    Have any other pins "disappeared" from PinPics??

    Yes! I noted the missing Kingdom Castles pins too. All have been removed from the Pinpics DB.

    Another oddity... and note these pins are now back (if they ever went away), but I was looking at the DSSH AiW cuties and there was a moment last week where I could have sworn three of them were gone from the pinpics DB also (only Cheshire and March Hare were in the DB.) Since they are all now in pinpics it may have just been me looking at the wrong thing. So other than this odd moment (now all AiW cuties are in the Pinpics DB) its only the Kingdom Castle pins I noted as being removed.

    Need that new database! Please!

    Or... lets all move our trading to pintradingdb.com... I definitely have been working on my account recently. :)

    I think it has to do with the shifting of the database, but I have noticed that a few listings have had pictures removed

    Or... *PSA* make sure you keep track of all of your owns, trades and wants in a format of your choice (Word doc, Excel spreadsheet, etc.) and don't ever count on a third party to do it for you. :) /*PSA*

    This has been your semi-annual reminder that third parties are never going to be as reliable as you are yourself. :)

    Private tracking definitely is a great idea. And for any system to be useful it would need to fit with how you pin trade. For me I cannot imagine how private tracking would add value to my hobby (pinpics is about trading for me... not tracking.) Thus, it would really seem to be on each person to determine their trading goals and specific needs for tracking that goal... If tracking is a concern at all.

    To be honest I am totally good with the slightly flawed tracking systems available to us. Yes, as you can see, I am far from a perfectionist. I am more "get it done". hahaha

    I really like working with others and I am glad to assist with public databases, even if they are flawed/imperfect. :)

    Today I noted the four Acme/Hotart treasured classics pins released for LatT, Aristocats, Dumbo and Lion King also are missing. Is it just a matter of time for the Best Friend pins to disappear too?

    So... another curious observation.

    I was looking at trade matches (for a specific pin... ie, "what can I trade" hyperlink) and the Kingdom Castle pins came up as pins I could trade and the traders who want it were listed.

    So... went to look at my traders... these pins still are not appearing. Also did a search on 'Acme Kingdom' and they did not come up.

    (Note: not complaining, just sharing my observations...)

    Kinda similar observation. I can’t ever get the what’s my name badge series pins to pull up by searching but they are there.

    You have to search without the apostrophe. ie: what my name

    All the pins are now missing (ie, I am getting a message saying pinpics is down for maintenance.) Are we getting the new database?

    I have been having trouble accessing Pin Pics so I went looking in Instagram and Facebook to see what was up. I read from one post in the FB page that the site was updating their servers. I can't reach the site from my saved link or by typing the address. However, I was able to reach it by going to the FB page and clicking on the link posted in the January 23 post. If you try the link at the top of the page you go to a page that talks about healing. Hope this helps.

    I was able to log into Pinpics for about 1 hour today, but mostly I get this message when I try to go to it:
    "PinPics.com is temporarily under maintenance to allow for some healing to occur. Thanks for your patience and understanding."

    Maybe that is why I got to it briefly... just tried a link without any luck though. :(

    Peachyshades said to email her if you noticed that pins are missing. Some of them are already back. Her email: ambassador@pinpics.com

    I had faith it would get fixed... And yes... the pins I saw which were missing are all back. So kudos to peachy and Pinpics!
