That link finally gave me the little box, and I got a confirmation on the points. Thanks. I had never seen that page before.

When you click on that link to make it your homepage, it should open a new window to this page: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/web_search_hel

, which does have the point button at the bottom. Are you getting that page?

I clicked on that link in two different places and again made it my homepage. There was NO BUTTON to click to receive points (like I have seen on so many other pages) I searched and searched and it simply isn't there. I check every page for its points button, so I know what to look for. On the "Make this your homepage" I get a box that asks if I want it to be my only homepage or not. I said Make it my only homepage....I have done this and undone it so many times I don't know what to do. Is there a manual way I can get those points?

If you are making the SparkPeople Web Search page, www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/web_search.asp
your homepage, on the left side there is a link that says, "Click here to make this your homepage!" When you click on that link, there is a button for you to click to receive SparkPoints for making it your homepage.

For email points, you can only get points for the newsletter type emails. If you are receiving those, towards the bottom of each of those types of emails there is a button for you to click on to receive your point for that email.

The box for getting an email when someone replies to your topic should already be checked. If you are unchecking that box, you won't receive an email when someone replies, but if you leave it there, you should receive an email. If you have trouble receiving any of our emails, you may need to try the suggestions here for receiving our emails: www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer.

.

I hope that helps!

Every day, I click on "make spark people your homepage. It already is. Sometimes I change it back to something else, then click on it again. There are supposed to be 25 points for doing that - and when something refuses to work, it bothers me. I have challenged myself to get over 100 points a day and have done it every day - but the 25 points - as well as points for reading e-mails will never register. I posted this elsewhere - no one has been able to help me. I also check that I want an e-mail when anyone replies - and I don't get those emails. does anyone know what is wrong? And how I can get my 25 points? I AM learning from and enjoying this site, but it is frustrating to see things that just will not work.
