it is easier for your team leaders and team mates

This is a big No No. We want to keep the team organized.
Post whatever you want in a thread already started.
If you can't find a thread to post it in, post it in chat
or contact myself or one of the other leaders and they
can post it for you.
(Read the first post in our team that says "Read first before posting")
Please read this so if you see STOP signs and YIELD signs,
you will know what they are for.

I noticed the other day they (SP) added a button: "See more Topics". So we don't have to click the forum titles anymore to see the threads underneath.

We can just click the button! Yea! SP!

Hi Team,
I changed the name of the team to 50+ Maintainers.
It is still the same team.
emoticon
I did this because
#1. It is shorter to write out and
#2. I think it is more inviting to everyone 50 and over years of age. Some members thought the Team was for only members in their 50's or for members needing to lose 50 pounds.
emoticon
So I think the name change will clarify this and hopefully we get new members in their 50's, 60's 70's and beyond!
emoticon
Have a productive day everyone and keep moving!!
Von

If you received alot of spark mail this morning as I did for me posting about Team announcements, it is because they are working on our Team. I see they haven't fixed it yet. Every time I post an M in the topic of a thread it doesn't show up.
As in Pedometers and Team Announcements. So bear with me.
Also our streaks in Team Goals isn't working.
They did fix our team huddle though so that is great!

I don't know if any of you have noticed but we are having some technical problems.

I posted this in Tech help today:

"My Team huddle isn't working either. (Other teams are having this issue also)
Neither is my ticker tapes in the team goal Streaks.

Also help, to one of the coaches: Everytime I post a new topic with an M in it, it doesn't show up in the title...help please!"

So, I hope they resolve these soon as the huddle counts towards our points (only 1, but still.....lol)

....TEAM ANNOUNCEMENTS....

November Team Goal Results are posted at our ...TEAM GOAL...thread. It is the 2nd post.

I have been getting alot of e-mails asking how to do the Spark Streaks and have them show up on our Team Goals. And also how to do the Team Goals.

What are they?
1. Spark Goals is something you track each day-there are 5 goals posted for our team. You click on track goal to track it to make the little bar go up to meet our monthly quota as a team.

2. Spark Streaks will show up on the team goals when you do the directions below. You will see how long you have done a team goal. You can see this by clicking on the side of the individual team goals.
```````````````
Here are the directions for each:

```````````````
TEAM GOALS AND SPARK STREAKS DIRECTIONS
```````````````

In the middle of our main team page There is Team Goals.

1. Under that you will see Individual Goal:
This is where you click to see directions
on how to post for each goal.
2. Team December Progress
This is a calculator that will add up each goal as
we track them as a team.
3.Team Goal:
This will show underneath how many we
have out of the goal number set for the month.

The far side you click to post in your numbers for the day.
When you click here you will see:

Other Goals Page:
under 50 Something Maintainers Team Goals
Click on each Team goal and write the number
you did for the day.
Be sure to read the directions for each goal to
see how to post for each goal.

````````````````
Your Spark Streaks
-----------------------
To share your streaks with our team.
You can see who has streaks by going to
Our Team Goals and clicking on the left
side of each goal.
-----------------------
Go to:
Spark People start page
It will say:
START
Welcome (your name)

Bottom left under MY SPARK STREAKS
Click: See More SparkStreaks

You will go to a page titled MY SPARKSTREAKS
Click on button that says: START/MANAGE STREAKS

On this page you can see what streaks you have going on.
Under spark team goals 50 Something Maintainers you should see
the Love My Team Goal. You can click on the squares to:

Track streaks
Share on your page
Share with Team

Make sure to click on share with team and track streaks.
You will be able to see on our team by going to our
TEAM GOALS and clicking on the left side of Love my team goal.

This will show you how many days you have been on a streak.
(You can go there now and see my streaks)

I hope this helps those who want to Start a streak.
