Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    PinnyPals is down for maintenance, it'll be back within 24hrs if everything goes to plan :)

    Most of you don't know but a bunch of services PinnyPals used decided to close their doors/start charging money (coincidently within a very short time of each other!). This maintenance will be to migrate away from all that and just rock out by ourselves.
    Thanks for your hard work, especially keeping it free!

    Can't wait for it to be up again so I can keep trading, heh! (If my trade partner is out there somewhere, I'm coming, buddy!)

    It should be back up :)

    Please let me know if you have any troubles with login/sign up/reset pw, as that was a major change. Even things like being logged out oddly, it should generally stay logged in, unless you clear cookies/local storage.

    I don't test every browser, generally just Chrome/Firefox/Mobile Safari.

    edit: Oh also as a side note, you can login with your email or username now! THE FUTURE IS HERE!

    Empty your caches/hard reload site. Also you need to allow cookies/local storage/whitelist pinnypals in any plugins.

    If you're in a mix of two versions, you'll have a lot of problems.

    Hmmm I've noticed an issue with "www.pinnypals.com" vs "pinnypals.com", this existed before all this as well I just never really noticed it, always click the same bookmark :P

    You can only be logged in to one or the other, so if you login to "pinnypals.com", then later visit "www.pinnypals.com", you'll appeared logged out (when in fact you're still logged in over at "pinnypals.com"). Vice versa.

    Long story short, for now, use one or the other :) It probably won't be fixed till I migrate to the new server!

    @grgemonkey random question - do you have pin count history stored anywhere for individual users with date stamps? I'm curious to match up my count of pins with my spending history that I track (because I'm crazy and like math).

    Pins for trade!

    @hingo I'm afraid it overwrites every time you hit save :( They're not stored "as one", each pin->count is a separate row. Probably I can add an export option though.

    Just a heads up, it seems the email process has been silently failing since the 29th March. It's back up now and has caught up, no emails were lost.

    Hey everyone,

    PinnyPals 2.0 just went live! It's a fairly major overhaul of the trading system (yet still the familiar interface you're used too). I won't write too much about it, as I made this video to do most the explaining.

    The two key changes to be aware of if you dont' want to watch that:

    1. The Trading Post system is totally new. The "Claims system" from the old site is gone. Now you post an offer and it's immediately available for any other person to accept it, right away. You can now limit who can accept it by country, to counter-act not being able to screen the claims.

    Note however, there is a new type of trade called a "Interest Only" or "Looking For" trade, even on the Trading Post, these always require YOU to accept the offers that come in. The site will explain things to use as you use it and everything needs a double confirmation, so feel free to explore :) (green & red buttons are always "final step", blue/orange/other won't ever commit an action)

    2. The "Allow Modify" system is removed entirely. In its place is the "Counter Offer" system, now you can just send the counter offer straight away and accepting the offer shifts to the other pal. You can do go back and forth like this forever.

    Otherwise, just explore :)

    See you at PAX Aus ;)

    PSA

    Apparently since the new site launched, nobody was receiving emails about new offers. That bug is fixed up now but take a moment to check your trades for anything you might have missed. All those emails were never recorded so they can't be sent out again now.

    Thanks for the reports, even things that seemingly work on my end turn out to be bugs indeed! Don't fear reporting things.

    Tisk Tisk, I think you might have failed this months SLA because of that.

    oh wait you do this for free and keep the pin list constantly updated.
    Perhaps a thank you would be more appropriate :)

    The "Archive" button has been removed, due to many people accidentally hitting it on mobiles :)

    I've left currently archived posts alone but if you'd like your history back, just message me.

    Alright cool cats, a much requested feature is now live.

    On any pin page, you'll now see a "History" tab. Click that sucker to have all successful trades of that pin/set retrieved! Magic!

    Few things to note:

    All the data is anonymous and stripped clean of any identifying information, this is done on the server before the request is even sent back.

    Except if you're logged in, any trade you were part of is obviously not a secret to you, so that's separated and the full data is shown.

    Just go incognito or logout if you're curious to see the difference.

    Otherwise enjoy.

    IS THIS SERIOUSLY GETTING BUMPED!?!

    Yes.

    Thanks to the handy work of @astroboi you can now find a useful little Search box at the top of most pages with pins on them. A much needed feature as the pin count ever grows! It's just a name search right now but I find that works pretty well :)

    Everybody drop some thanks on @astroboi!

    If any one is curious, PinnyPals is not at all effected by the recent Cloudbleed debacle.

    In this instance, it paid to be a very simple low key server :D

    That said, it's not gonna hurt to change your password....you'll have to pretend you forgot it as I'm now realising there's no other page to change it.
