A Quick Tour of Pin Pics
Pin Pics is a pin information and trading community designed
and implemented by a group of pin trading fanatics. Our goal is
to raise awareness about which pins exist, where
they came from, and how to get them. We plan to accomplish this
goal by getting as many people involved as possible, to the
extent to which they wish to participate. Everyone is invited to
add pins to the database, comment on existing pins, or offer any
other services they deem appropriate.
Anyone may also use the Trade Assistant to list which pins are
in their collection and set up lists of trades and wants. These lists
may be viewed by others, and the Trade Assistant can also automatically
link up people who could potentially trade with one another. What a
great way to meet new friends and make great trades on the Internet!
Although several administrators moderate the pin database as
needed, the vast bulk of information in the database is provided
by the Internet members of Pin Pics.
Basic navigation of the site is accomplished via the menu
options along the left-hand side of the window
or at the top of each page. The main sections of the site
Our home page contains the latest status about Pin Pics, and
has links directly to new features and options.
