Are your accounts in the "make money" topic area? Apparently Pinterest doesn't like that.
Nope Meg; they're in fitness, travel, gardening, home.....

Service that report / check IPs for email spam have no value when it comes to Pinterest.
If the proxy is considered "bad" the account is going to be immediately suspended the first time you pin to it (if Pinterest lets you create an account with the IP at all). So it's unlikely that the problem is that the IP has been flagged.
Now, if the IPs are too geographically similar (e.g. 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 etc)
the accounts were created close together or are too similar to each other (same board names, same topics, pinning using the same keywords etc) then Pinterest might tie those accounts together and suspend them all.
I have been running SM2 since 12/9/2016 on a vps with proxies. I have had little to no trouble. When I updated to v2.14 everything went fine until I checked 1 of my accounts. I have 3 accounts running and 2 of them are just fine. 1 account gives me an error message #Error Loading Account Details#. I checked to my Ip to make sure it was whitelisted, I checked the proxies, and I reloaded the account information and nothing changes.
I am not sure what to try next.
That's a lot of banning in short time.
Is your Proxy IP dedicated IP?
Are those good IP?
You can check them at...
ipvoid dot com
edit: another one this morning
I don't think VPS in some way could be affect it
Sorry I didnt mean there was something wrong with your VPS, just meant if you were running on a VPS you could share the login details with Jon and his team so they could check your setup.
It certainly sounds like something you're doing is tying the accounts together so Pinterest is suspending them. I can't say what that is, because it sounds like your settings are correct in SM2. It could have to do with the way you're creating the accounts or configuring them in the browser before you put them in SM2.
No, I think if the email is ALWAYS opened in firefox with the proxy, you should be ok. But I know that gmail comes into my normal home IP and I look at it. I am just wondering whether any graphics in those Pinterest emails could be used to verify your location or IP address.
Reading the info on that (I don't know whether it HAS to include a graphic), it seems that piece of software can notify you of the reader's IP address, which, if they read in their normal browser could identify that they are in a different area from where they are "pinning".
I have my emails set automatically to text only. I don't allow images to be shown as they can be used to track whether an email was opened. I wonder whether Pinterest tracks which emails from them were opened and checks against the proxy? Or is that just paranoid?
Sounds very frustrating. I have been lucky as I have only had a couple of accounts suspended and none since I stopped pinning 24/7 (2 months now and no suspensions).
If you are running on a VPS I think you should raise a support ticket and provide VPS logins to Jon's team and see if they can see anything that could be causing this.
1. How fast are you pinning and following?
2. Are you targeting the keywords of the pins to the pages that you're sending people to?
3. Are you sending people to a high quality informational site that doesn't try to pitch or sell anything to them (ads are fine, but no sales pitch in the content)? Pinterest will ban accounts quick if you send people to a sales pitch page or affiliate review page
4. What market are you targeting?
Are you getting any indication from Pinterest why the accounts are being banned? Also did you get any emails previously from Pinterest regarding these accounts?
For now, uncheck the "Enable Pin Link Auto-Updating" checkbox on the Settings tab, then close and re-open SM2. There's an issue with that functionality that I have to look into.
