Well\, sure enough. There is a tab at the top of the page after logging in that says 'e-mail notifications'. There are several options within that tab for them to e-mail you.
Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention.

I found web support for the LBL site at
websupport@lbl.gov

I would think the support folks should have read my email by 9am Pacific time. If it's not up by then, feel free to add your queries to that email address.

I searched everywhere I could and could not come up with any contact points.
Who contacted them last time? Perhaps if that team member would place the contact info as an announcement so we could access it when needed.

At last! After not being able to post since April 27, the automatic reminder sent me an email saying I hadn't posted in over 7 days. That email had a link and I logged into the web site with no problem.

I then backed out, logged off, and re-booted my browser to see if I could log on using my normal bookmark, and that worked, too.

I hope this means the rest of you can long on now. Thanks so much for posting your notes and letting me know I wasn't the only one getting frustrated over the number of miles I'd accumulated but couldn't "officially" tally.

I joined it last week and invited a bunch of friends... it made me look silly because obviously they couldn't get on the site. I've sent two emails to them without the courtesy of a reply as yet.

Has anyone had any luck on logging your miles? I cannot even get the site to open!

I emailed them yesterday at websupport@lbl.gov. I actually received a reply. The guy said the site appeared to be working. Unfortunately, the main page was working yesterday, but you couldn't log in.

I wrote him back and told him that while the main page displayed, when I tried to log in using the Return Users button, I got an error message. I haven't heard back from him.

Glad it's not just me. I am not looking forward to adding in all my missed miles when it is repaired. At least I keep an EXCEL spreadsheet so it won't be too bad.

I just signed up on the exerciselbl.gov site on 1/10/12. Does anyone know where I would go to find the road map they use to go from Virginia to Oregon? I would like to see a map of cities and counties that they are using to get the big picture of where I am in the U.S. It is real hard to follow. Alot of their links on the site don't work. The only ones that work for me are the (my exercise log) and accomplishments.

Site seems to be working fine for me now. I just signed up for it and input the miles I've already logged since I started cycling again. I'm just outside of Carbondale, IL! This is such a cool idea. Hello everyone, I am user 64984 and my name is Samantha, though folks pretty much call me Sam. I'm perfectly fine with either one, though I also answer to Carter and Sunshine.

I contacted "Lawrence Berkeley Lab" they are the ones that have the copy write to the site. I shot off an email to:

websupport@lbl.gov

That is the email they gave me to write to. If any of you would also do this, maybe we would get some action to correct this problem.

I hope it works.

It hasn't always been slow. I have tried to find an e-mail to the webmaster, but can't find one. If anyones knows how to contact them I would appreciate it.
I haven't logged my miles for three weeks now because of how slow the website is.

I've been loving this as it's like a game for me to see my progress but is anyone else noticing how slooooooow the site is?

This is the site that I use to map out my walk - if you look at the satellite view, you can see some sitewalks and paths too. www.usatf.org/routes/map/

Good Grief! The Lawrence Berkeley Lab is five miles from my house. I had to hook up with SparkPeople to find the inspiration I have been looking for, right in my own back yard.

Here is a link to the message board where we share our member number to pick a partner. The partner thing is really optional. I personally do not even use that feature, but some people on our Spark Team do. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

I am unsure about the partners. It made me pick some random partner when I started and now someone is asking if I want to be their partner. Does anyone know what this partner thing is all about? I'd rather be partners with someone from spark were I could email or converse with them here. I saw that you could do a search by number and everyone listed there number on one of the other threads but I still don't get the whole partners thing. Anyone...

No - The exercise.lbl.gov website works diffently than SparkPeople. The team on that site is one that you create for yourself on your account so you can compare your progress to others. You can put anyone you want on your own team but no one else can see it but you. We just make our number accessable in case you want to form a team on your account and put our progress against yours.

So this team does not have a team on the site?

Here is how I think it works - the way you have a team on the other website is, you take our numbers and you form a team of the people that you want to "compete" against on your own account.

I personally have not used this feature so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

I was wondering if we had a team on the website? If we do can you tell me how I can join. I am still trying to figure everything out. Thanks,

If you are interested in joining the 12 mile per week goal, you just click "join goal" and after you have joined it then you can track your progress each day you have added miles. After you put in your stats for the day, SparkPeople automatically adds it to the group goal. The red bar represents the percentage of the group goal that we have achieved.

The water goal just works a little differently and once joined it takes you to your nutrition page so you can keep track of your water intake for the day, but also automatically adds it to our group goal for the month.

Hope this helps out a little.

Maybe a silly question but... I do not understand how the team goal is being done. The red bar does not make sense to me. Could someone help me out? emoticon

This site is a lot of fun. I needed something to keep me exercising and to push me a little harder and go a little further. You can daily enter your miles for the day on the calendar. It starts you at the coast of Virginia and takes you on a trail across the US into Oregon. Once you post your mileage on the site, it will show you a photo of the road of where you are "visiting". Very cool! I have used this site since July 2007 and I keep on trekking. I started a message board on SparkPeople several months ago posting my progress on this site, and others have joined me. Here is the link to that board :
