Wed, 17 Dec 2014 20:37:51 EST Change base calories When I have lost weight, do I need to do something to reset the base number of calories I'm allowed each day or does the site make the change automatically when I enter my new weight on the measurements page?

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 12:08:15 EST Home page friend feed duplication I am noticing when I visit home pages, that the friend feed posting for the day is being duplicated, making for a messy home page. Take a look at a few and you will see what I mean. Perhaps this is being caused by introducing pictures into the friend feed. Just thought you should know.

PLEASE, PLEASE tone down the horrible blue and green colors on the drop down menus of My Trackers and Community. I IMMEDIATELY got a screaming pain behind my eyes and head as soon as the drop down menu came up on My Tracker. AND NO IT'S NOT MY COMPUTER, I tried it on 3 different computers, a tablet and my iPad and same result. Wed, 17 Dec 2014 01:57:52 EST I tracked steps incorrectly. On Friday the 12th of December I manually tracked an estimation of steps . I need to correct the number entered. I obviously mad an error . The number should be 10000steps not miles . I apologize for the mistake . I was exhausted by my son's wedding and all that goes along with a wedding .I received trophies as a result that I did not earn. I don't want anything if I did not actually earn it ! Thank you in advance . Tue, 16 Dec 2014 19:05:40 EST What if I don't want to be friended? OK, this is weird, but what if I don't want someone to friend me? Is there any way I can remove myself from their page? I know it sounds strange, but I think this person is a bot. I also got a thank you for friending me letter (I did not send her a friend request) and an invitation to join her on Facebook because she's so into Facebook. Just seems like it's some sort of scam trying to get people to the FB page and the unsuspecting person gets a virus or worse. Tue, 16 Dec 2014 17:05:48 EST Today's Changes I like the new features for streaks. A question: Because I could previously see "100% since [date]" as part of the summary on the start page, I didn't need to have logging in checked as a streak. Since I now have to click on "Manage My Streaks" to see a display that tells me I am at 100%, I had to check logging in as a new streak. It appears that this means my streak will now start over, right? (I was at 238 days, also had previously lost a 190-day streak because of a glitch when I logged in ... Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:39:46 EST my fitness tracker has stopped recording data I have had my sparks fitness tracker set up for about 4 or 5 days now.

Some days I cant get anything to work properly. Mon, 15 Dec 2014 14:34:14 EST Android SP app and new tablet I just got a new Samsung Galaxy S 8.4" tablet, and my SparkPeople app doesn't respond to the font size change in the tablet's settings, specifically for the Friend Feed section. The type on the Friend Feed is really small and hard to read. It would be great if the app could recognize the tablet's global settings and respond properly. (Note, some of the app's sections do change font size with the global settings, but not the Friend Feed.) <BR> <BR> Thanks for a great website! (Now, about thos... Mon, 15 Dec 2014 11:46:00 EST Any way NOT to search foods from other members? It's very time-consuming to plough through the numerous (mostly nutritionally incomplete) entries 'shared' by other members when I'm looking for simple, generic items--like chicken breast or fruit. <BR> <BR> Time was when the SP basic entries came first, and you had to opt in to get the ones shared by others. <BR> <BR> Now they are all piled into one mess...any way to unpile them? get back to simple ACCURATE information?

This morning I tried to delete a post on the team wall and just where the box asked if I wanted to delete an advert for B&Q covered the Yes No box. All I could do was close the page and start again. <BR> <BR> This is not the first time this has happened as there seem to be lots of problems with coming up slow ads, so that when you click where you want to go you click the ad and are taken there instead of the page you want. This is caused by ...

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 19:10:10 EST Weight Changed Itself I had weighed in a couple of weeks ago at 198. Last week I weighed in at 192.x, can't remember what the fraction was. Today my weight reset itself to 198.8, higher than it was ten days ago. My progress report on my weight is now skewed, and after I weigh in tomorrow, I hope at something less than 192 (fingers crossed), it is going to look like I lost and then gained back six pounds, and then lost it again, all in the space of two weeks. Is there any way to reset the weight chart so that it do... Sat, 13 Dec 2014 14:58:52 EST Spark goodies I am sure I posted a question about the spark goodies and I see it has not been acted upon. Is there any way to add another option when we spin either of the point wheels to give the sparkgoodies we earned to others not just to ourselves? I have so many spark goodies and when I remember to use them is normally when I get them on my spins but I cannot give anyone else the goodies only myself.

I had it set to do cardio one day and then strength training the next with a break on the 7 day - Is there a way to do that still? I can't find one looking myself. It was just a nice reminder for me! Sun, 7 Dec 2014 13:34:00 EST VERY slow nutrition tracking For the last 2 weeks or so I have noticed that the nutrition tracking takes much longer than it used to due to the ads that all seem to be loading very slowly. I've noticed this on both my work and home computers. It was so slow today that I gave up completely. Nutrition tracking is VERY important to me. I don't mind the ads, but if they keep interfering with my being able to track I will have to find a new website. I hope there's something that can be done. <BR> <BR> Thanks, <BR> <BR>...

So I got some supplements and went to add them only to find that nutrient was not one in the list. I know it is not on nutrition labels but is there a way to add nutrients that are not one the list when adding foods or at least some way to track. Also wanted to track the omega in CLA, same problem. Sat, 6 Dec 2014 23:50:44 EST Spark uploads, but website does not Hi, <BR> <BR> I have been trying to upload my spark since this morning.

Thu, 6 Nov 2014 04:47:30 EST Vlog Help Please I just tried to upload a short video to my blog and am having difficulty seeing it. When I click on my blog for today (Don't Give Up!), a black video screen with a red "1" on it appears at the top of the blog, but it doesn't play.

Tue, 4 Nov 2014 21:21:04 EST Spark Goodie Points I am a Team Leader and our Team seems to run out of points b4 the month is up, so I have been using my own personal point to make awards. I don't mind doing this, but I would rather the goodie came from the team, when it is something they accomplished on a Team Level. Is there someway I can get some of my personal points transferred over to my team? Tue, 4 Nov 2014 19:37:40 EST Tracking weight Hi, <BR> <BR> For some reason the weight on my tracker ends with a .4 kg ...

I was wondering as I lose weight should the amount of calories that the SP website recommend go down or do I need to recalculate my information - and where do I do that. Also when I want to maintain my weight (still a few pounds to go) how do I figure out how many calories am I allowed to maintain. <BR> <BR> Thanks <BR> Alan Mon, 3 Nov 2014 21:34:58 EST not getting spark mail Can you help me. in the last 2 weeks I have only gotten one email for spark.

But I looked today and huge portion of them disappeared. It now shows 2,552 steps for 11/2/14, but if you click into the details, it shows my workout had 7,460 steps and I got the Glow Getter Trophy for yesterday, where it says 8,688 steps for the day. How do I get the total number back? Today it seems to be tracking everything fine, but I need the numbers to match for yesterday so my average doesn't go down. ...

Mon, 3 Nov 2014 16:06:27 EST Water Tracker on phone App I have been logging my water on my phone app. It keeps track of it fine, but it seems like it isn't counting towards my team goals.

I went back as far as the calendar would let me and manually reclicked on the tracker on my start page, and now it shows up on my team goals. Thought I would let you know!

Some days it's at the bottom of everything, and other days over to the side. Why do you have to make things so difficult and time consuming for us? <BR> <BR> Also when you click on the track water in Spark Points it should bring the tracker right up.

I understand ads keep the site free (annoying as they can sometimes be) but do you have any control over how loud they play? I tend to use headphones.

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:44:13 EST What is the reasoning behind not having the nutrition tracker know what time of day it is in your area and automatically change the meal to the most logical choice? <BR> <BR> It is so frustrating to put in breakfast, forget to change the drop down, and it all goes into Dinner. This is especially annoying when using groupings because then you either have to delete and start over, one at a time, or move them to the correct meal, one at a time. <BR> <BR> Is there any thought to changing this? Sun, 26 Oct 2014 06:12:34 EST Recipe Calculator You know what? The calculator is a great tool; however, it is frustrating. First, I have to enter my ingredients twice. Second, if I make a mistake or need to change an ingredient - especially if I want to see how a substitute would affect the calculation - I can't. The remove links don't work. They usually don't delete at all, or they may delete the ingredient underneath the one attempted. If I just change the amount, it adds the ingredient again with the new amount.

After realizing my steps wouldn't be recorded I tried to record them and my fitness minutes manually but messed up the entry by putting steps in instead of miles. I just got a trophy for 1100 life time miles on the 6th of the month, and when I tried to enter 2500 steps and 1500 steps from the pedometer it of course thought they were miles and awarded me a bunch of mileage trophys all the way up to ...

I have no way to save if I highlight the food in the box below the search box. If the food appears in a drop down box to highlight, the buttons do appear, but that only happens about 25% of the time.

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 11:28:01 EST START page has no accessible link to the Store the Store link is in the small type at the bottom of all the pages, but the START page continues to populate tiles containing links to articles the farther down you scroll, so you can't actually reach the bottom of the page. Or maybe you can eventually, but i haven't been able to yet. <BR> <BR> it seems it might be an easy solution to simply put a link to the store on the orange menu-bar? Just a small shopping-cart icon would suffice. It would be so handy! <BR> <BR> thanks ;-) Thu, 16 Oct 2014 10:55:35 EST Problem with Fitness tracker "Add Daily Note" For about a week when I try to use the "Add Daily Note" feature on the Fitness Tracker the window that opens is blank-no graphic of lined paper, and the cursor won't display in the window, not possible to add a note. <BR> <BR> Also in the nutrition tracker when I click on the icon to view nutrition information on a specific food the window that comes up is similarly blank. <BR> <BR> Using Windows 7 and Google Chrome browser. <BR> <BR> Any ideas? Thu, 16 Oct 2014 09:48:04 EST Spat lights up red My spat lights up red. The battery indicator says it's still got 2/3 to go (I just changed it in July). The dongle is lit up green, but nothing is syncing. This has been going on for a week or so. HELP Thu, 16 Oct 2014 08:19:04 EST Ordered my Activity Tracker -where are the pts.? I just ordered my SPAT, does anyone know when my spark points will be awarded? I haven't received them yet. Wondering if they are awarded once I sync my tracker???? Thanks for any answers. Wed, 15 Oct 2014 20:16:27 EST Tracker arrived with low battery I have a couple of issues. The tracker arrived (From Amazon) and the battery already reports half gone. Also I walked 4 MPH at a 10% incline on my treadmill for 30 minutes and it is only crediting me with 0.11 miles and 14 calories burned. I tried to recalibrate it but it doesn't seem to recognize the walk I just took. Wed, 15 Oct 2014 17:42:05 EST SPAT clip broke after less than 12 hours of use I am absolutely livid. About halfway through my jog this morning I noticed my SPAT was gone. The clip, however, was still securely attached to my shoe. Naturally, I was unable to located the tracker by retracing my route. <BR> <BR> I really hope Spark has a decent replacement/refund policy - I took it out of the box for the first time last night. It should not have broken this quickly. Wed, 15 Oct 2014 11:40:58 EST Battery Level Indicator I have changed my battery twice and the battery level indicator still indicates that my battery needs changing.
