    I think you should include the account creator with profile image updater in it.

    Here is my suggestion. I'm not really into Pinterest, its more like a part time activity but if I'd ever see a bot with these features I'd pay for it.

    *Filter Pinterest users by followers count and be able to follow only those who have over lets say 1000 followers
    *scrape pictures by keyword and repin them to a certain board
    *Repin a single or more pictures to multiple boards -I have 50 boards in one account and I don't enjoy pinning the same picture into evey board by hand
    - NO mass following as this from my tests is a red flag for Pinterest
    *Auto Comment rotation from a list of different pre-written comments
    *The ability to schedule the pin/like/follow/comments/ like 1 pin then in the next second 2 likes, then again 2 repins then 1 like...Not something like pinning every 2 seconds without commenting or hitting the like button as this pattern could again trigger red flags.
    If I'll have other ideas I'll write here or just PM you.

    So you would want the bot to create the accounts and then upload the profile pic to the account?

    + 21 for the good information.

    Awesome Suggestions!

    Another great feature that will come in handy would be the possibility to scrape boards by certain keywords and then sort them by the number of followers. (and something really great would be if you could input a minimum number of contributors that a board should have in order to scrape it; this is a great feature if you want to get accepted in public boards)

    i see some great suggestions so far :)
    here's mine: mass invite people to my group boards.
    pinterest has limitations on this feature now if you invite too fast, so it would be great if you can bypass the limits somehow :)

    My suggestion. Make it available for all of us free!!!

    Just kidding. I think if you can add the feature to search for images based on keywords, download them and then reupload them or repin them to my own boards, it would be helpful. Also all other features mentioned above!

    That's a great Ideal + added

    like a images scarper, that just re uploads the pics to your own board, that's good stuff there. + added

    You would want the bot to grab it's own proxies and check them, and then use them in the bot. would you want to be able to add your own sources? + added

    + for all above .

    My suggestions:

    -stable work with 1000's accounts.
    -easy management,creating boards for each.
    -account creator.
    -possibility to edit main photo,bio.
    -url change on my pins.
    -scrape popular pins by keyword

    + for link management (it's the main target for all above).It would be nice to manage them trought many accounts.

    Thanks.

    + Image uploader from certain folders to a certain board
    + Assigning keywords to specific boards (required for the next part "Project creation..")
    + Project creation with following ideas:
    1.) Search for pins based on pre-defined keywords
    2.) Ability to set a task based on pre-defined specifications using the list of pins scraped before.
    For example, I want to have a 100% chance to like images with more than 5 repins. Then, as next task, a 75% chance to repin the same image to the appropriate board (dependent on which keywords got assigned to which boards). Then, a 45% chance to follow the board, and a 25% chance to follow the user. Last but not least, a 10% chance to drop a spun comment (preferebly also assigned to specific keywords). ALL values should be subject to change, preferebly even a range (X% - Y%). I think through this way you could create a completely undetectable bot who is also able to repin relatively quality content. I actually planned on paying someone to create something like this... but I don't really have the funds.

    I wonder how hard it is to create something like that.

    warm regards,
    mike

    My advice. Allow it to be readily available for everyone no cost!!!

    Only kidding. I think if you possibly could increase the particular attribute to search for graphics according to search phrases, get these people then reupload these people or even repin them to my own, personal forums, it might be helpful. In addition all other capabilities stated previously!
