    I added the new pins from Shop Disney (Avengers Endgame that came out on Friday) to the database. I will go add the DEC Star Wars ones too

    sis would like me to remind contributors to PTDB to please try to take photographs against a plain white or black background, no textures or anything like that.

    Yes please! And if you can take two pictures, one against a white and one against a black background, that would be awesome too. I have noticed that the colors turn out differently when against a light colored background vs a dark colored background

    Fyi: pin '26416 - Box Lunch - Disney Princess Bows - Elsa'
    Is actually merida (not Elsa)… not an expert, but pretty sure.

    Edit: @starry_solo (Sorry for the short/quick note, but was on the move and wanted to get this note up before I forgot.)

    Reviving a bit of an older thread for a question-- so are fantasy pins officially okay on PTDB as long as they're marked as such? Or is that a grey area? I have a few beautiful ones in my collection I would love to add and I feel the pin world is severely lacking in a database for collecting fantasy pins, but I wanted to make sure it was okay to upload them. Do we make sure to state the creator if we know it?

    So...we have a spot to mark fantasy pins and it should also be noted in the title as such.

    The title should read:

    FANTASY - name of pin (fantasy must be in all capital letters and be the first word in the title)....this is consistent with the origin of the non-fantasy pins which are labeled DS, DSSH/DSF, DLR/WDW, etc.

    Within the description, it should also note fantasy.
    And the box to check off "fantasy" should be marked.

    The price should be the original price the fantasy pin maker sold the pin for, the date of release should be the date the pin shipped out (not the pre-sale) and within the description, the pre-sale date should be noted.

    If you know the fantasy pin maker, it can be noted within the description as well, including what form of social media the fantasy pin maker can be found on.

    A clear picture of the pin, front and back, should be provided. The pin should be on a white or black background that doesn't have any texture in the background (no bedsheets, no fingers/hands, nothing should be visible in the picture other than the pin itself). The picture should be shot from a distance so as to provide sufficient room for the thumbnail to be the entire pin as well

    We have deleted fantasy pin listings when the person does not provide sufficient detail as I do not have enough time in the day to fix descriptions for fantasy pins when I have to fix descriptions for authentic pins a lot.

    So, on another note, PTDB needs clear pictures of all the pins released at D23 2019 last week, other than the Dark Tales.

    So from DSSH:
    Beloved Tales
    Marquees
    Organs
    Heroines Fight Back
    Large Anniversary Pin

    WDI/MOG:
    Heroines and Sidekicks
    Villains and Sidekicks
    Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary (all except jumbos), including mystery puzzle
    Cat Naps
    Anniversary Keys
    Anniversary pins (Lion King, Attractions, etc.)

    DS:
    TLM 30th Anniversary Set
    Marvel
    whatever else came out (already have the animator dolls and masquerade set)

    PIXAR:
    Approved stamps
    UP

    Any other pins that came out....

    A clear picture of the pin, front and back, should be provided. The pin should be on a white or black background that doesn't have any texture in the background (no bedsheets, no fingers/hands, nothing should be visible in the picture other than the pin itself). The picture should be shot from a distance so as to provide sufficient room for the thumbnail to be the entire pin as well

    As a reminder, @GreyWyvern created a Chrome extension for use with PTDB. Information about it is here:
    Pin Trading DB Enhancement Chrome add-on

    But suffice it to say, you can add owns, wants, trades on the thumbnail directly, rather than going into the pin listing itself! :D

    bumping this up because we still need help!

    if 10 people input 10 pins per day, we will have 3000 pins in the database in a month!

    Left to right, top to bottom, this is what I made out. A lot of them are just random background characters which is dumb because they had plenty of unique designs with names to choose from:
    ?, ?
    ?, ?, ?, Hobo Cookie
    Miss Bon Bon & Hobo Cookie, a miscoloured Cookie Carnival Judge & Old Fashioned Cookie, Miss Bon Bon & Hobo Cookie

    OK, does anyone know which director each of these approval stamps belong to for PIXAR?

    Bottom left reminds me of Pete docter. Upper right maybe Gary Rydstrom. Maybe dan scallion for the top middle? But those are probably the easier ones.

    I just started using it quite often...
    It is far superior to PinPics when searching for a new pin release Go ahead and Compare.

    Everyone should ask themselves "what would I do if Pinpics folded? (due to lack of $$//ACME pin deal?)
    From the current site conditions, to the yearly promise of a new upgraded site, you have to wonder.

    Which reminds me, we need assistance adding pins, especially the older ones.

    There are so many new pins, it's hard to keep up and add the older pins.

    We also need a few members to look at the older pin listings, see if there are duplicates, and/or determine whether the description of the pin and/or the picture is sufficient.

    Just think, if we had 10 people adding 10 pins each day, for 100 new pins per day, that's 3000 new pins a month! :D

    I don't have a lot of spare time right now, but I just took a few minutes to add an older pin. will try to do another one tomorrow.

    If 100 people a day entered 1 pin each day we would have 3000 more in a month. (You can see what I am doing here... Playing off @starry_solo's pitch). So... Pitch in... Even if it's one pin a day. ( I feel like I am in an NPR fund raiser... It doesn't matter how much you give... It's just important to give.)
