I am a member of a ton of teams. :) I do not think there is any stealing going on, especially since you can be in more than one.

Team Hug!!!

now, now...I don't know if that was the intention--and I do doubt it, since she's still a member of this team. If you want to join the EA Active team--that's okay to do.

The one I have a problem with is one of the very first Wii Fit teams, but I don't remember which one....it's been a long while back that that one did it.

well, hopefully not, but sometimes that's how it feels, but I guess that comes from the one that just joined to advertise--I think that was the first time I had ever encountered someone join and drop out to just advertise a team--and I actually saw the person do that on both this team and on the Gamers' Fit team.

Anyway, enough negative here--I'm over being upset and it wasn't so big of a deal to keep it going...SO



Here's some ideas to advertise a team--

put it on your SparkPage (so the team is visible) and talk about it in your SparkPage intro, if you wish.

advertise on the public message boards.

put it (with a link, maybe) in your signature (edit it on your "edit my SparkPage" page).

you could also choose to put something in your profile picture that would draw people to check out your SparkPage and/or the team.

when fitting, can mention it during a conversation--as in this happened or I'm on this team type things.

or you can find people that you think would be truly interested in the team and send them a SparkMail or an invite from the team (it's a button at the top of the team page) explaining about the team and that you thought they'd be interested.

lol...it's the original because it was created based on the Wii Sports when the Wii first came out (and not created by me).

I hope it will always be the best, or at least one of the best--the reason I even stepped up to lead it when the old leader seemed to be gone (she claimed that she came back every now and then to check in, but never posted anything) was because I saw great potential here, not because I thought I was worthy of being a leader.

I think I've just been around enough to see people posting about a different team on a similar team too many times (and seen many complains about such things in the leaders' team too)...lol.

But this team will always be the original, and the best, mommy_t ;)

If I'm a day ahead of you... Don't get confused. I'm just a time traveller... :D

Please ask permission before advertising a different team--especially one that has a similar focus as the team you're advertising on--it can be seen as being rude.

It's perfectly fine to mention different teams you're on when talking on this or other teams, but I prefer to not have posts dedicated to "come join my team".

I'm really not opposed to people belonging to multiple Wii teams, either, just that sometimes it feels like a person comes here to draw people away from this team to a different one (although, I'm sure that's not what you meant or intended).

(sorry, I got a bit irked on this one--I've actually has someone join this team to just advertise and then dropped off the team again....that REALLY ticked me off, so this is relativity minor. emoticon But there are a LOT of Wii SparkTeams out there now, and to let them all have advertising here might be a bit much.)
