    I opened 3 accounts today on pinterest, the first two were opened using some proxies and the third one using my home IP.

    So I re-pinned just a few pictures (max 5) using first accounts and it got suspended. Did the same for the second account and got banned again. Then, with the account made from my home IP i just pinned 2 pictures from my site and I got suspended again.

    I am not sure if I am stupid or something else so I am just not able to pin pictures from my own site to the pinterest without any complications as many other people do. All the pictures are original, there isn't any copyright infringement present.

    They should just ban all of their users and close the Pinterest :)

    Yeah their security is a bit overkill.

    So I suppose that letting accounts age a bit will help?

    They might be keeping eye on new accounts. If you make a new account, start slow, repin something from older accounts and don't pin 2 pictures from one site.

    I should pin around 500 pictures just from this site. Is this possible? Of course not right now but in few weeks. Maybe I should verify the site?

    I am not sure if i should pin other pictures since this could be considered copyright infringement.

    Don't think that's possible. I made a new acc few days ago, made 20 pins at secret board. 5 of them were from my site, 15 of others from other members. Few hours after I made that board public my acc got banned.

    Were you able to do this using older accounts?

    I so far have just few pictures on my sites, but I am about to edit around 500 which would probably take few days. I probably won't do it and waste my time in case I am unable to upload as much pictures. I will try with verifying my site.

    Wow, I had luck with pinterest before and was thinking about getting back into it... maybe I should avoid this.

    Try signing up with dedicated proxies. Shared proxies leave a big footprint. Also, don't repin many pictures at once. Yeah, I know you repinned a maximum of 5 pictures but 5 might be too much given their strictness.

    Proxies aren't the problem because this doesn't work even without proxies. I will try with an old account, but slower as per your recommendation.
