    hey guys.
    i got ghosted again, i guess because users were reporting my pins.
    it seems like only my big board is ghosted, because no pins show up when I go to the URL while being logged out, it's pretty strange.
    i'm wondering, is there any way to un-ghost myself?
    thanks a lot

    It's been awhile for me now, but it took my main account 4 months or so to come back after being ghosted. And I recall being ghosted only in niche group boards, including mine. What I did was leave all those niche group boards (except mine) but kept pinning conservatively. My other accounts kept my exposure up, so there were no real worries.

    How do you tell if we are ghosted

    go to your account URL without being logged in.
    click one of your boards that you want to check.
    if no pins show up, then you are probably ghosted.
    and you are probably ghosted if you are getting zero re-pins

    same here, i'm only ghosted in 1 of my boards, but its the board that has all my followers.
    and its the board where i would pin the most, so i guess people started to report me.
    pretty strange

    Keep pinning, but not as much. Act like your account is a woman unaware of the ghosting and kept going for the sake of pinning. Hopefully after a few months, the penalty will be lifted. Your other accounts should keep up your image circulation. Good luck!

    word up, i will keep pinning and see what happens next.
    and yea, i noticed that pinterest can be random sometimes with their algorithm, it could take weeks or months to get back to normal
    when i got ghosted a year ago, i just emailed pinterest support and they said my account "was in hidden mode".
    so they un-ghosted my account for me, but i'm not sure if i want to email them again because they might check out my account and mark it as a spam account. thanks for the tips
