    Hello, guys!
    I am an old user of Pinterest, and I am on some group boards.
    So I rented out a server and created a new account on Pinterest.
    What I did later is I sent the invitations to the group boards where I am a member to this new account.
    The interesting thing is that I got invitation notifications by email, but I dont see them at my Home news feed.
    I did log out and log in again, did it few times. No notifications come in.
    I tried clicking on accept invite in emails I got, but it only redirects me to the main page and doesnt accept the invite.
    I tried waiting, I even submitted a ticket to pinterest support, still didnt get any answers in 2 days.
    I donnt understand how can I accept the invitation if I dont see a notification about it.
    I have all the possible notifications turned ON by default.
    I never changed anything there.
    I still get the notifications by email but not in the Pinterest home feed.
    I just dont get it.
    I have no chance to accept the invites.
    Do you know how to get the notifications to actually show, so I could accept the invites? Any other ways to accept the invites?
    Guys, I need help, please help me a bit. Thanks.

    Not clear from your post, but are you looking at the dropdown located in the upper right of your screen? You click on an icon and there's a dropdown. That's where I get my invites and other activities (e.g. who repinned my pins, who followed my boards, who accepted my invites, etc. My home feed only shows pins from those I'm following.

    Does it look like I asked you directly?
    Someone with a knowledge could help.
    Your comment is not necessary here, sorry.

    Try another thing. From the invitee profile, go to the board it's been invited to. At the very top, there should be accept or ignore buttons.

    Just a note, I'm seeing a lot of wonky behaviors with Pinterest group board invites in the past few days. It seems like they're rolling out some new features. Perhaps it's just buggy at the moment.

    I deleted several of his "nice share, thanks" types of posts.
    He had over 100 post points, but now he has only 67 points.

    @Basenix Group LLC: Make QUALITY POSTS, or don't post at all.

    Thanks to Mr. W130SN for the report. :)

    @WizGizmo, looks like he just can't help himself. Anyway at least he is at 100 posts. He might give it a rest now.

    OK Mate, I realise you want to open a BST but when you go on a posting spree it is pretty obvious.
    Just try to post more in depth replies and respond to threads that you have knowledge about.
    Cheers and Good Luck

    If you are still having trouble with notifications you should give bulletproof vps(dot)com a try. I am so done with those F%$#@in notifications, you will love this service...

    I have been using them for a year now with NO complaints. Support is great and you won't be turned off because of all those abuse notifications. That's a HUGE plus if you're running Xrumer, GSA, etc

    They also allow e-mailing, but you have to contact support and see if they have IP's available for you.

    If you have any concerns, message me, I am not selling anything, I don't get any $$ if you go there, I just wanted to share my experiences.....
