Here are some other things to keep in mind:

Other People (their content, their behavior)
You will see all sorts of things on PinEventz, some of which may offend you. If you are offended by a photo or video you can either click away or you can mark it as poorly moderated by clicking on the "Flag this photo" link on a photo page. If you think there's immediate cause for concern, you can report content and/or someone's behavior to PinEventz staff via the “Report Abuse� link that’s available in the footer of every page. Note: Please report from the specific page that the offensive content appears—this gives us all the information we need to take action.

Copyright Infringement
if you see photos or videos that you’ve created in another member’s photostream don't panic. This is probably just a misunderstanding and not malicious. A good first step is to contact them and politely ask them to remove it. If that doesn't work, please file a Notice of Infringement with PinEventz who will take it from there. Check out the “Copyright/IP Policy� link in the footer of every page for more information.

You may be tempted to post an entry on your photostream or in our public forum about what's happening, but that's not the best way to resolve a possible copyright problem. We don't encourage singling out individuals like this on PinEventz as it could be seen as harassment which is against our guidelines.

In Conclusion

if you don't feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe PinEventz isn’t for you. We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the PinEventz community has the experience they want.

Stay Connect with families and friends

Share family events with family members and extended family and enable better family connections and communications with PinEventz.

Today, many families across multiple generations are located in different cities and in different countries. Grandparents are in one place; mom, dad and the kids are in another place; and siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins are on other locations. Members of an extended family have a strong desire to stay in touch, especially when they are not near each other geographically. Questions like, "When are you going to send me pictures and videos of the kids?" are commonplace. Extended families want see and hear what their loved ones are doing. Oftentimes phone calls or emails are inadequate or disjointed, and difficult to archive and retrieve. They are poor substitutes for reliving the event and for "being there."

So we at PinEventz provide extended family members with an easy way to stay in touch with each other’s busy and eventful lives with world events.

When a family event occurs (such as birthdays, graduations, sporting events, holiday celebrations, etc.), family members can contribute the photos, videos and descriptions of these events and share then with other family members on PinEventz. Those who cannot attend a family event can experience the sights, sounds and recollections on PinEventz as the next best thing to being there. Out-of-town grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles can now see their grandkids, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews in action - running, playing and laughing – with just a few clicks on PinEventz. And they can use PinEventz to respond directly to their kids or grandkids with thoughtful messages or even with their own photos and videos.

Automatic email notifications make the communication effortless, as family members are updated as new content is added.

Why not start using PinEventz as a great way to bring your family and world events closer together around the world. www.pineventz.com

Unique for Creative Uses

The PinEventz site is built to be very flexible and versatile. People are employing PinEventz in some very creative and inventive ways. Here are a few examples.

Connected Parents

We have heard from a number of parents who are using PinEventz to share events and pictures and videos in a private manner of their children with the parents of other kids on a sports team or in a scout pack. One user set up all of her son's cross country team meets as unique events on the PinEventz timeline and map. She then invited in all the other team members' parents to contribute photos so that everyone could see all of the various pictures and read a recap of each meet. She also used PinEventz as a way to coordinate rides to and from each meet, fundraising activities and the end of the season party.

 

Memoir

We have a handful of people that have told us they are using our platform to record and publish their memoirs.

 

Reunion

People are using PinEventz as a way to organize and reconnect with people with whom they graduated high school or college. The reunion application is a popular one for a number of reasons. First, everybody wants to see old (or older) photos of their classmates and themselves. Second, PinEventz lets multiple people contribute their recollections of specific events, and it enables multiple people to help answer the "Who was that guy?" question that invariably comes up with reunion preparation. We had one woman share with us that she scanned in her high school graduation program from 50 years ago to share with her classmates, as well as some old photos of a powder puff football game.

 

Driving Across the Country / Extended Trip

As you might imagine, lots of people like to document their big trips and vacations with photos and videos. Many of these users tell us that the added mapping functionality allows them to pinpoint their memories geographically so that they can retrace their steps and solidify their memories.

Reduce Clutter

People have scanned their kids' memorable school work assignments (such as artwork, poems and other memorabilia), as well as photos from their kids' sports teams, and uploaded them to PinEventz. If you have kids, you know how much clutter these produce. With PinEventz, people can capture the creativity, place it in time and share it with anyone else that would want to see it. Plus, you won't have a guilty conscience when answering your child's question, "Why are you putting all of my drawings away?" Now you can show your child that these are always available online and enjoy a less cluttered home.

 

Big Project

A number of users are using PinEventz to document large household improvement projects (a new house, an addition or some landscaping). Each day is a unique "event" of work and the users can see (and track) and share the changes across the life of a project with anyone that is interested.

 

Company Historian

A few companies are using PinEventz to track notable events in their histories, such as company launch, conferences attended, significant milestones, employee achievements, product enhancements, and company parties.

 

Collaborative Company Project Communicator

A marketing communications firm and Media Press is using PinEventz with one of its clients to collaboratively document various marketing events. Once the events are documented, various team members who are located around the globe contribute their thoughts and perspectives on the events: what went well, what could have been better, etc. Pin or share your team members' perspectives on past events in order to build improvements into similar future events.

If you are using PinEventz in a unique way, let us know! Email us at feedback@pineventz.com and tell us how you are using our site. We'd love to hear from you!
