Confused-where has pinstack gone ?
 
I inadvertently signed up as a member of this forum AND blackberryforums.pinstack.com.
After a week or so I realised that it was PROBABLY THE SAME FORUM. Now however, none of my shortcuts go to blackberryforums.pinstack.com.

Was pinstack a part of the blackberryforums or not. I am confused.

A guy had just solved my problem of a worded theme for the Pearl, don't like icons. He showed me the screenshot so I posted a request for download point but pinstack is no more so I can't retrieve the answer if it is there.

Can you tell me what happened to pinstack and if it is still a part of you ?

Does anyone know a download point for a worded theme for Pearl like BB Insight list on 8700v.

Many thanks

Pinstack is NOT the same as this forum.... BUT IMHO, this forum blows that other one away.....

Pinstack is a competitor to this site, Pinstack doesn't allow links from their site to any competitors, but BBF here has no such restrictions. Stick to using this website/forum and everyone will love you. :)

Thanks for clarification and I will stick to BBF.

Can anyone though please help me with my theme question on the new thread. Thanks.

As stated above, pinstack has nothing to do with blackberryforums. They did however start later in the game, and chose to blatently copy this websites name, instead of using forums.pinstack.com they used blackberryforums.pinstack.com... kind of doesnt make sense, does it?

Can anyone determine what is up with pinstack.com?

Hi Lagers...you might try looking in here first for your theme question:

I think the gentle answer people are trying to get across is "we don't talk about Pinstack on this forum because the owner (Guess) of this website/forum feels they ripped him off, so we support him and don't patronize their establishment",

It would be polite to not continue this Pinstack discussion further. :)

I don't mind discussions of that nature, I am in no way a dictator, so as long as it follows the forum rules, its free to be discussed, even if its regarding a website that blatently copied my hard work, I am not however upset with them about that.. I am upset with them that the owner decided to post private emails publicly.

How low can you go?

Ya I agree! Me personally, I have issues with thieves.... But that's just me! This site rocks Guess and although they tried to imitate, there is still only one Blackberry forums on the net that is a one stop shop for everything BlackBerry related, and that Sir, is the BBF!!!

My .02's worth...

Thanks for the hard work!!!!!!

Pinstack seems to be "unreachable" yesterday and today (the most recent google date was 02/22/07). I don't frequent their site, but tried to access because it seems Joshua was asking why he can't reach the Pinstack site. I am unable to either.

LunkHead 02-24-2007 12:17 PM

Maybe they downloaded desktop manager on their server and it 'exploded'.... Sorry I could not resist... My avatar made me do it.... :)

NJBlackBerry 02-24-2007 12:22 PM

Or maybe they tried to register NJBlackBerry and the entire domain exploded!

LOL..... Thanks Nj.... I got a good laugh out of that... Almost as good as DM exploding the dudes PC.... :)

NJBlackBerry 02-24-2007 12:26 PM

It didn't explode the PC. Just the hard drive. Two, if I recall.
;-)

LunkHead 02-24-2007 12:33 PM

Yes Sir, you are correct, it was 2 hard drives.... LOL... :)

n.nichols 02-24-2007 12:50 PM

That other site
 
Wow. I had signed up over there first without having a clue. I'm new to all of this and just found them first.

Looks like we're taking the high road over here. So be it, this is my new site.

Thanks.

Welcome - check out the Sticky Threads and the many tips and tricks threads (check out people's signatures for loads of stuff).

Good luck!

haven.espinosas 02-24-2007 01:45 PM

Sorry to have aroused a sore subject. One may feel honoured that another would desire a similar site. Are both sites trying to achieve the same goal? I understand thievery and all, but are we not all on the same team?

NJBlackBerry 02-24-2007 01:46 PM

No, we are not.
