Yesterday I received an email from Pinterest that one of my boards had been categorized by someone. Has this happened to anyone else? I guess in the grand scheme of things it's not that big of a deal but I was a little miffed by it!: Why should a stranger be able to categorize MY boards?

That is odd though. I would think you would be the only one to control your own board. I would be a little miffed as well.

If you haven't already categorized your own boards, a message will pop up for anyone who visits that board to categorize for you.

So, if you don't like people doing it, go into each board and give them a category yourself.

What Sheepea said....and depending on what type if computer you are on it can be very distracting, and the only way to get rid of it is to categorize the board. So, it's not being done because someone thinks they are helping you.

This. It's really simple, just select a category like food, art, kids, whatever.

Th bigger question is why wouldn't you want your boards categorized?

I admit that I haven't categorized all of mine because I was being lazy when setting them up but there's no reason to not want them categorized that I can think of. Sure, I'd prefer to do it myself because someone else might miscategorize them from what I think they are but it's not as if there's someone seeking out all uncategorized boards in order to make Pinterest a more organized place. The option is offered each and every time you click on someone's uncategorized board.

Speaking of Pinterest - did the side bar that shows activity (that was always on the left side) disappear for anyone. One of my acquaintances recently told me she started following me and that she had left a comment on one of my pins and I realized then that that side bar is missing.

Honestly, Pinterest is cool but it's one of the most unstable sites every.

I have email notifications enabled but I never get anything. I would kine of like to know when someone comments.

Mine is gone, too. But my number of pins seems to be correct again, so I figured they are changing up things and hopefully we'll get it back soon!

When it first happened I (mistakenly) thought they were changing the name of my board which is very specific to me. Now I get it, the category is something different from naming your board. Meanwhile I think I'll go and categorize each board myself so I don't get all bent out of shape. I'm one of those weird "I'd rather do it myself" kind of person ... annoys the heck out of my family!

BF - my left side bar is still there
