Well now that the login wheel and bonus wheel are not right at the top of the page, I will likely forget to rack up extra points at all. I think that I've already read most of the articles, so I wouldn't get points for those anyhow. I only blog when I have something meaningful/useful to say...in other words, this really doesn't make any difference to me.

Exercise points are the only points that have any meaning to me.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I'm just beginning to really get into them..The new changes make them more accessible it seems. I used to forget about them except for the bonus wheel and reading articles.

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I have noticed it getting easier, but it's like someone else said there are different categories now. If I want to accomplish as much as I can in a day and get as many spark points it takes 2 hours or more, so it's definitely pretty time consuming. I see where you are coming from but at the same time it is still difficult to get them if that makes any sense. Good luck!

Karen -- do you mean the SP blogs or the members' blogs, because they are still giving SparkPoints for commenting on members' blogs - 1pt up to 5 posts/points

The article points went up when they took away the blog points. You now get 5 points for either/or but they used to have two separate categories.

I think if you are working at your points it isn't easy but if you aren't paying attention it is. I used to easily achieve round 135 points in a day and yesterday it was 250. I thought it was a little strange but today I'm a bit more in line with 135 again.

Yes, I can often notch up 60+ points in a day but I'm not complaining. Some of the easy points have gone though - like the polls. Well, they might still be there but I'm not sure where. But now it takes 5000 points to move from one level to another so that takes a long time!

You aren't imagining it. I wouldn't worry about it, but rather embrace it. It means that we can share our joy or offer support more easily than before.

I have noticed that a lot things are giving more points than before, (articles used to just be 3 now they are 5, right)
and there are a ton of new way to cranking points on the front page...

I used to not reach 25 points until post exercise or post lunch. Now I log in and track goals, review goals, spin the wheel and I am basically there...

others seeing this or am I crazy?

Is this change intentional?
