I guess I like the Team public as a good place for sharing and maybe witnessing.

I"m not one to force anyone's will.....
So, I have decided to simply start a private team for more in depth discussions on health and fitness in light of current events in relation to the 3-Angels Message.
I think that a private team would be more conducive to that.

If anyone is interested let me know via private SparkMessage.
I will be going back through the threads and contacting people who posted in the past with interest in end-time discussions.

I think this is the best solution to my question.
Thanks to all who contributed.

I vote public. I don't think going private would be the motivator to get people posting. Maybe a challenge? I would be interested in knowing how many members are still working on weight loss and going to the Sparkpeople site. So saying that, I will check out the team page and see if I can add anything. Thanks for taking an active roll. This could be a very helpful and important group to many.

The thing is.....people are NOT posting ...

To have a team of Sabbath Keeping people dedicated to fitness.....ideally, would mean that we POSTED.

If being public is hindering people from posting....what is the point?

That is correct.

Prior to the 9th this team had been inactive for over 3 months.
I thought going private would open up discussions.

A third possibility is that I could start a private group for anyone who wanted to go private for more in depth discussions.

If we are private, that means the team is not searchable, correct? Which means there may be someone out there looking for a Sabbath-keeping/Adventist group who won't be able to find it, and unless they are Spark friends already with someone who is already a part of the group, there is extreme potential they will never be able to join us.

My vote is 'public'.

I would like to go private to allow for more free and open discussions regarding current events in light of the Third Angel's Message

I would like everyone to take the opportunity to voice their view on this thread.

Depending on the response,
We will either remain a public team
.....- which enables everyone on the web to view our posts......

or

We will become a PRIVATE team
.....-which means that no one can except team members can view the posts.

If we go private we can still invite people to join the team - by submitting their name and sending an invite..
but, it wouldn't be possible to search for the team on the web or SparkPeople site.

Let me know emoticon
