Need a refresher on how to use Hintd?

How do I make a list?
Click Start Hinting in the top right corner of our homepage to sign in and follow the prompts to create your own hint list.
Can I really hint anything onto my list?
Yes! You can hint anything from a site as long as it has a URL. Think bucket list trips to pilates sessions. Dream cars to vacation rentals. Beer of the month club to manicures. It’s all up to you. You can also add “Hints from the Heart”, gestures that may not cost much but mean more because of their sentiment, like a walk in the park by simply posting the park’s url. Click on the Hints from the Heart in the nav bar for inspiration.
I know what I want, but not sure if I have 22 hints. What if I need ideas?

What does it mean if I make my list private?
Checking private means no one can see your list unless you send them your list’s url.
How do I know if someone has bought me a hint:
The giver will be prompted to check the hint as “bought” and will be able to send you an email that says they have given you a hint.
Won’t that spoil the surprise?
If the gift is a surprise the giver can mark it as a surprise. It will be marked as bought on your list but you won’t know who bought it or what they bought.
