Manage Removals

This section:

  • lets you see the system-maintained exclusion list of collections that are automatically removed for you
  • lets you review and prevent the pinning of any potentially poor quality collections that are automatically identified
  • allows you to make sure you don't pin collections you've already pinned
  • gives you a way to prevent pinning the collections in your own exclusions list

This section only appears when you have browsed for and loaded at least one csv file of collections for pinning.

System Exclusions List

Remove previously pinned collections / own exclusions list

How does removal work?

Each time the auto pinner completes the pinning of collections, it automatically creates and downloads for you a record of the collections successfully pinned. Later, you can use the dowloaded file to prevent pinning them again.

Once you've done this more than once, you can use your favourite editor to combine those downloads into one file to make the whole removal process easier. Do remember when you're combining files to add a comma betweeen the last collection id of one file and the first collection id of the next.

Or you can upload those files individually and remove the matching collections for each one, one at a time - it's up to you.

You can also use this section to remove collections in your own exclusions list. A good place to start one is from the list of poor quality ones (see below), once you've reviewd and removed the ones you don't want. The list of collection ids you're given is perfect for an exclusions list.

IMPORTANT: The final set of collections for pinning only gets "locked in" once you start auto pinning and the recovery file gets created for the first time (after the first successful pin). This means if you have a crash or need to start over before it reaches that point, you'll need to go through the removal process again.

Load your list of previously pinned collections or your own list of exclusions:

Possible poor quality collections

To identify Collections that are potentially of poor quality, the descriptions are checked and scored according to various criteria.

The criteria used include those descriptions with:

  • more than 800 characters. By itself this is ok and is only an indicator that other criteria should be checked
  • many different event names
  • lots of relationship names
  • email addresses or web site addresses within the first 300 characters

You can review the images, titles and desccriptions of any meeting those criteria and then remove the ones you don't want pinned. You're given a list of the collection ids of the ones you removed and you can copy and paste them into your own exclusions list, if that's what you want.

Review

Removed

Remember, Pinterest board names are case sensitive. Also, you can't use boards containing sections.
For Chrome, Vivaldi and Opera browsers on Windows 10, this must be the only window / tab open before auto-pinning starts.
For all browsers, once you start automated pinning you must leave the browser completely alone so you don't mess up the macro that's running.

Pausing things / shutting down

Continuing after an error / shut down

Store here a summary of the csv files and their collections that you're autopinning

Use these notes to summarise what you've been autopinning so you can see at a glance what you've already done. That way you can quickly plan out what to do next.

For each csv file, I'd note the exact search term the page number and the board name used.

When you click save, the date is added at the front so you always know when you did what. These notes are specific to the 10-60 Collections Auto Pinner.

If you need to, you can edit an existing note (but not the date it was created). When you've made your edits, click Update to apply your changes. The edited date is added at the end of the note.

The notes are stored locally in your browser and are 'persistent' so they're always available, even after you shut down and restart things. They're specific to the browser you're using at the time, so if you use different browsers, each will have its own notes.

It's a good idea not to put any personal info in them, just in case.

If you want to know more, read about local storage on this Wikipedia page (opens in a new tab / window).
