I am still trying to learn what info goes where. Teams are a great idea if the instructions are clear. I do not know the job description for a leader of the team.

It depends on the people of the team. the teams I'm most active on are the ones with challenges, a daily chat room, and leaders that do put themselves out there. I know we all need to be active on the teams but I also know it's hard to be active on a team when you are the only one active. That being said try joining a team on the Spark people challenge, or a team run by a spark coach. Good luck.
I think a lot has to do with the leaders. Also, I think during the summer more people stay off the computer because they are busier. (That's just my own opinion)

I think that sometimes people join believing they will be active and then realize there is only so much one person can do. I am on several teams but really only engaged in my BL Lemon team. I also have some activity with the 10K team. I think you should decide where you want to be active and see if others will follow your lead. Good luck!

Well that makes sense as to why there's no acitvity, but I have also seen Teams where even the Leader is inactive

I have noticed that too, however, all of the teams that I am on...I was kinda put on. I didn't purposefully join any team. So, I think that is what happens....many people might not even know they are on a team.

Just make sure that you are active. People will follow your lead.

I know we are all busy, but it would be nice to get the teams going again and accomplish what the team was set up for in the first place.
Thanks for yor response.

the teams I'm on that have become inactive were pretty much made active by the leader. When the leader got busy with other things, the team just kind of died.
I've tried to pick things up again, but that's not really my forte. I don't really know HOW to get folks back to being active.

I have noticed that a lot of the Spark Teams I have joined have little to no recent activity. I even came across one that was deemed "inactive" because no one had posted anything in 60 days or more. What is up with that? I dont understand how teams are created to help and motivate people, and then the teams fade away. Some people rely on these teams for structure and accountability.
How are we supposed to benefit from the support of these teams?
