Didn't we used to be able to track our kids' fitness minutes on sparkamerica? I'd like to be able to do that, but, as the OP noted, there is no way for me to log in to the site. I was hoping to motivate my littles to get more active outside.

I will try to illustrate.

There is a "normal" SP New York team listed in
SparkTeams Geographic Locations United States New York Other New York Teams
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ
ual.asp?gid=6017
(299,934 members )
Which I've been a member of, for years.

But if you back up to
SparkTeams Geographic Locations United States New York
there is a SparkNewYork.com team listed (19,746 members)

I don't seem to be able to actually get into the SparkNewYork.com team because I keep getting presented with invitations to join.

It's peculiar. I must be missing something really obvious here.

I'm sorry but I still don't understand why there exist inaccessible SparkAmerica teams.

Are you saying there isn't any interaction or anything going on in those SoarkAmerica teams?

Why do they show up on the team browser lists if they aren't different? For example why are there two teams for Rochester, one of which is for SoarkAmerica that we can't access?

It's perplexing. I must be missing something.

Hi,

Sparkamerica.com has our leaderboards and information on joining Sparkpeople with the SparkAmerica 60 Second Check In version of our site. But there is no extra tracking or anything on sparkamerica.com, everything is done on SP.

I am an existing sparkpeople.com member.

I do not seem to be able to access sparkamerica.com with my sparkpeople.com ID.

Is this on purpose? Am I missing something?

I couldn't find anything about this in the sparkamerica.com FAQ.
sparkamerica.com/sparkamerica-vs-sparkpeop
le.asp


Specific details below:
-------------------------

If I am logged in to sparkpeople.com and visit sparkamerica.com, I am presented with a page asking me to join. If I try to sign up with my existing sparkpeople.com ID, I am told that ID is already taken.

If I am not logged in to sparkpeople.com and visit sparkamerica.com, I see a "members log in here" button. When I use my sparkpeople.com ID, I am again presented with the page asking me to sign up.

So it looks like there is no way to access sparkamerica.com or any of the teams there unless we create a brand new ID.

This doesn't make any sense, because I recognize the sparkpeople.com IDs of some of my friends in the sparkamerica.com team leaderboards. So somehow other people are accessing sparkamerica.com using their sparkpeople.com IDs.

And it also doesn't make sense that the sparkamerica.com teams are listed as options when I browse the sparkpeople.com teams. When I click those sparkamerica.com teams, I am again presented with a page asking me to join.

Information? Explanation?

Thanks very much,

anja
