Why did we change???? All the white is hard on the eyes. In the team threads there is no division from one post to the next.

I'm not visiting my teams as often with the new change. I like the old page with the huddle option. Some of the changes SparkPeople has made I liked, but this isn't one of them.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

If someone is doing well on the leaderboards, I love sending them a goodie, even if they haven't posted in the team in a while. emoticon emoticon

I have mixed feelings. I like the wall, although I think it looks bland. I miss the SCROLLING blog feed and I miss the huddles and the points that go with them.

I'm not training for a competition. I'm not trying to set a new record. I'm not trying to impress you. I'm saving my life!

Though I have not yet formed an opinion on this, I wonder why people always say "change is good." Change can be good or bad. There is no automatic truth to indicate change is good. Change for the sake of change which is sometimes less convenient, problematic, and inconveniences people accessing features they easily accessed in the past is not good. Change that address problems, issues, complaints, and sometimes suggestions for desired features is the change that is usually good and worthwhile.

I do not like the new team pages.

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Now that I can see the blog roll again, I am quite happy with it. Sometimes I just want to post a quick HI without having to search for the right category to put it under. So the top of the page thing (wall, I think) is really nice for me.

Lots of white space, which tires the eyes...
I *hate* the cutting of the blogs notifications. I don't care if you *can* access it somewhere else. I don't want to spend all day flipping through e-pages to find what was quick and convenient before. How does this change "improve" SP? well... it doesn't.

And I wasn't particularly pleased about the addition of exercise tracking on the scroll list either. What's the object of that? Nice for the member... but adds nothing whatsoever to my experience here. We're not getting notices every time someone tracks food. Why the bias?

Seems like members are becoming the least important part of the site.
Too bad.

Actually, you could already use your own words on the Huddle wall, you didn't have to use the "canned" responses.

I like the wall, but I really miss seeing the blog scroll.

the change looks good to me. Gives you the opportunity to do a shout out in your own words instead of the canned huddle comments. What's the problem?
