New: Add Comments to SparkPeople Polls and Slideshows

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Good morning, SparkPeople!

For a long time now, members have been able to comment on our articles to add their own tips, commentary and ideas to our stories. Member comments on our articles can be great sources of innovation and motivationónot only to our other members, but also to our editors, who read every comment you make!

Today we launched the ability for members to add comments to two more SparkPeople features: Polls and Slideshows. (Remember that you must be logged in to make comments.)

To comment on a poll, you first have to take the poll. On the poll results page, scroll down (below the "Get Your SparkPoints" button) and you'll see other member comments and, at the bottom, a box to submit your own comment. Commenting on a poll is a fun way to discuss what you think about the results, why you chose the answer you did, or what answer choices you wish were available, for example.

To comment on a slideshow (click here to see an example), you can scroll down to see member comments and to leave your own. You can add a comment to a slideshow on any slideónot just as the end. You can let us know what you think about slideshows, what other tips and ideas you have that the slideshow didn't mention, and more!

Please keep in mind that comments allow you to share your own tips, experiences and ideas about SparkPeople's articles, slideshows, and polls. All comments must abide by SparkPeople's Community Guidelines. Comments are not the place to ask or get answers to questions. If you have any questions, please post them on the Message Boards in order to get a response.

We hope you will take advantage of the ability to comment on polls and slideshows!

    I love everything about SparkPeople.....I'm here everyday, in one fashion or the other. One question I have is.....why are we only allowed to get points for 2 daily spark blogs when we receive 3 Dailies? I think we should be able to get points for all 3!

    I like being able to make comments on the polls especially. Not all polls reflect every person and sometimes none of the answers are the ones a person needs. Great ideas and great work! Thanks!

    Great! Sometimes I make a choice on the polls, but would rather have been able to choose something else, or at least to make a point about why I chose the way I did. Thanks.

    Great option...particularly on polls since many times I think my answer would be better if I had the choice of "...." Now, if we could organize our favorites into folders...that would be wonderful, too! I am reluctant to save faves since it takes me so long to go through them to re-read something on a 2 minute break at work.

Thanks for improving this wonderful website!
