Is it just me or is there a huge problem with PinBlaster?

    1) If you do a search for category "all" in the "user actions" module, do you get "Caramiamaria" as the first entry? (I have been getting this for over 24 hours)

    2) If you do a search for category "popular" in the "pin actions" module do you get "oreo, peanut butter cup no bake dessert" as the first entry? (I have been getting this for over 24 hours -- and on Pin Grabber too)

    If everyone is getting the same limited search results, all the time, are we all just marketing to the same small amount of people with the same small amount of pins that pin blaster/grabber collects?

    I do get those same results as you. That said, I haven't previously suspected/been concerned about redundancy of results because I've been doing keyword searches.

    I know you can do keyword searches on pin grabber, but for the user actions module, you can only search for people from categories. And the same people show up over and over again.

    Note also: on pin grabber, it maxes out at 50 per search, otherwise it just repeats (searching categories, keywords, or people)

    Yeah, I wasn't suggested keyword searches as a workaround, just a reason you might not be getting lots of nods from people (because we're not seeing it due to different workflows).

    Do you know about the forum for Pinblaster customers? You might post this as a bug there. Also, since searches are server side (Pinterest's side) this might be an easy thing to fix (if the same searches are working differently for you with a "real" web client, the devs might be able to quickly tweak how the search request is getting sent).

    It could be that pin is super popular. If you go to pinterest dot com, youll see the oreo cookie pin in the number 1 spot

    I see different pins in the #1 spot every time I refresh the page.

    Yes, I am facing similar type of problem with PinBlaster. However, at this condition, I would never go for keyword searches. Instead of this I should proceed as Bugs, as per the forum requirements of customers of Pinblasters.

    Heads up: There was major update/release today. I'm not going to paste things from a private forum here, but make you sure you update PB.
