If someone spams your group boards can it get you suspended?

This question has never occurred to me until today when I logged onto my boards to find 20 pins all pretty much looking the same and pointing to the one url. So I was wondering, can their spammy activity on MY group board cause me to get suspended for spam?

Thanks

Hey there @christmasstars I have 3 group boards that I run & I don't allow any of my board members to do what you're describing & if they do... I warn them once & if they do it again I kick them off the board. It's up to you to set the rules for your group boards & spell out the rules in your board description. Here's an example of one of my boards & go there & read the rules near the top to get an idea of what I'm talking about: https://www.pinterest.com/foodiehomechef/best-foodie-recipes-%7E-drool-responsibly/

I don't believe that what your members are doing will affect your account with Pinterest, but @PinterestGabby or @PinterestJanice can tell you for sure!

I opted to close my group boards last month. Years ago group boards were wonderful for both owners and members... now personal boards seem much more effective.

@MomFoodie  I still get a lot of RePins from the group boards that I run (according to my Tailwind stats). Not so much from the group boards that are owned by others. One thing I like about owning my 3 group boards is that I get a lot of exposure because my boards are featured on other people's PInterest pages.
