So you can't manually type in something? ANYTHING? do a ...... to get your status points, I just don't understand what is so difficult about that? It sure can't be any more difficult than what you just typed on this message.

Phooey. I liked the share feature for the spin and noticed it was gone too! Now if I want that point, it means I actually have to think of something on my own.

It's been 17 days, according to the last time I updated Daily Status, since I updated. This was an easy way for me to see that I had spun the wheel and updated my status. I often do not have the time to post otherwise. When you spin and get 1,000 goodie points or only 2 points it lets your SP friends know that you are still active on this site. Please bring back this updating tool.

Has a study been done on the percentage of people using the wheel points as an update vs posting another type of status?

I prefer the ease of just clicking on share spin, not typing in myself. If anyone isn't interested in spins, they can ignore. I really miss this feature!

You can type in your own spins! Not everyone wanted to see your spin numbers on the friend feeds

I can understand the logic - but I enjoyed letting people know that I spun and did the bonus spin too.
It was just way easier than having to type, lol.

I'm glad it wasn't just me that saw a difference with this feature. I, too, liked having the share feature for Spins!

What does make the status "more robust" mean, exactly? Some days logging in & spinning the wheel is the only thing I can get done.
I'm not a happy Sparkers.

Is starting over, each & every morning!

I agree. Please bring back the ability to click to post the daily spin. Why does making the status more robust have to mean removing something?

I was looking for a place to make a similar comment. I want my spins shared; I don't want my fitness min shared unless I choose to post it somewhere. Please restore so daily spin and bonus spin will show up without having to share fitness min too.

Yes, I can use my status to reflect points, but that takes additional time, and it was much simpler just to hit share.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback, I will pass it along! To go along with the friend feed, we are working to make status updates more helpful and robust, and this was one of the changes made. Please note that you can always use your status to reflect your points if you choose.

--Anne

Why did they remove the share feature from the Spin wheel and bonus Spin? It was a very nice feature to just check in with your buddies and share something quickly.
Why remove what is a good thing??? Bring it back!!!
