    Yesterday, i accidentally pinned some guy's pin to one of my boards (his pin was from my site and that's why i made that mistake). Anyways, now i can see his profile showing on my profile (pins from) . Obviously this happens when you pin something from another person, but i removed that pin basically after a couple of seconds after i pinned it (that pin from that guy), but i still can see that his profile is showing on that "pins from" place. Is this some bug with pinterest or maybe it takes more time to "get rid of" people from your profile who's pins you pinned but later removed them?

    Actually it's almost 24 hours and i still can see his profile on my page.

    Its not a bug its just how Pinterest works. It shows who you have pinned from.

    It usually only displays the most recent three so if its bothering you just pin a few other people.

    I understand what it shows, but it still shows the same guy that i pinned from yesterday (accidentally) and later removed that pin. So i think his profile should be removed as well from my page, but i still can see it out there.

    And actually i pinned from like 2 other people in the last 24 hours, and i still can see only that guy's profile who's pin i removed yesterday, and i don't have any more pins from that guy.

    Doesnt matter if you unpin it.Once you pin it will go into your history(this is a facebook product after all)

    If he is sticking there he probably has authority...a lot of boards or a lot of pins. You could try finding some popular boards and repinning them to knock him off the spot.

    It is strange, because i did some testing yesterday, and i can see that it doesn't matter if some accounts has more pins/boards than another. I created 5 accounts (different ips, also deleted all cookies). I repinned from one account with only a few pins and 1 board, later i repinned from another account with over 100 pins and 12 boards and almost after 24 hours i still can see that account's profile with only a few pins, another account isn't knocking off that "weak" account, but it doesn't show up at all. I can see only 1 account that i've pinned from. I pinned from 3 other accounts as well, and even now i still can see only that "first" account that i've pinned from.

    Not sure, maybe it takes more time to see changes, because normally it suppose to show top 3 accounts that i've pinned from, but it still shows only that one.

    This morning i actually repinned from my another account that is almost 2 years old and with a couple of thousands pins and over 100 boards, and even that account can't "knock off" that "weak" account.

    It's better to wait and see. Maybe, it takes some time.

    Maybe :)

    Or it is a bug, because i have another account (yes, i have a lot of accounts :D) and i've pinned a few pins from like 5-6 accouns (it was more than 3-4 days ago) and i still can see on that place "pins from" that only 1 account is showing, but it suppose to show 3.

    Funny thing is that if i pin from some other account (for the first time) i can see almost immediately from who i've pinned from (on that place "pins from).

    Also i have seen that some new features are frequently applied to some profiles and not to others this might be one of the reason
