How To Make A Spark Page:

Since a lot of people have never made a SP page and those of us around you find it really rough to communicate with you when you don't have one, as we can't comment to you , send you a spark mail, comment to you on your page or send you a goodie we thought it might be nice to have instructions on how to do that.

Instructions:

1. On the orange bar at the top of any SP page such as a team message board, hover your cursor over the word COMMUNITY. A drop down list will appear in red. Chose SPARK PAGES and left click on it. On the page that comes up, if you don't have a spark page, a button on the top right of that will say CREATE A SPARK PAGE, left click on that button
2. It will take you to a page titled START YOUR SPARK PAGE.
3. Enter an overall TITLE for your spark page. It could be something that describes where you are in your life and why you are at Spark, like Healthy Lifestyle and Less Weight for example.
4. Scroll down slightly it will say INTRODUCTION TEXT. In the text box below it enter something that says a little about yourself and why you are here on SP, example I'm 57
and I am getting serious about losing my last 50 pounds and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
5. Below that comes GOALS & INTERESTS. Here just put something short for the starting of the page like Losing 50 lbs. Eating Mediterranean style. Like knitting and walking. You will be able to go into detail later.
6. It will ask you if you want to ENTER A PROFILE PICTURE below that Left click on the BROWSE button and it will take you to your computer files where you can click on a folder that holds a picture you would like to use for your profile. It is not necessary to use your actual photo, though I will say here that its nice to see the actual face of whom you are interacting with when you post on team threads. Some will choose a picture of an animated figure or a pet or a grandchild. In the pop up box that opened when you clicked Browse go to the location and the folder of the picture you want and click on that so the name of the picture appears in the small box under the folder contents. (Note: It will upload to a gallery on your spark page and WILL NOT GIVE PEOPLE THE ADDRESS OF YOUR COMPUTER) left click on the OPEN button on the lower right of the pop up box to bring the computer to your gallery. (SP will give it its own location address in your gallery to keep your computer private) You will not see it yet but don't worry.
7. Scroll further down to OPTIONS. If you wish people to be able to comment on your page and send you goodies or make you a friend, Check the ALLOW COMMENTS ON MY PAGE box and left click on the SHARE MY PAGE button.
8. This will take you to the OPTIONS page where you can choose the contents of your Spark Page. The DESIGN OPTIONS section allows you to choose how you want your page to appear. There are buttons to left click on here and a color circle that will let you pick your background color, the font and text color you wish to use and the edging color of the page. You do this by left clicking on the button the placing the cursor on the color you like and left clicking it. (Note: If you wish to use a design or picture background rather than a solid color, there is a button which operates in the same way as when you chose a profile picture). To pick a font type left click on the button below the color wheel that says FONT, and click on the type of font you want all the text on your page to be. You can see what the font looks like by looking at how the name appears in the box.
9. More Options. There is a listing of options that you may use with your page to the right of the color wheel. Left click the small box beside each choice you want to choose. My suggestion would be to at least click on
-Link To My Recent Message Board Posts. This is so that we can easily go to your page from your posts to interact with you.
-Allow Comments On My Page should already be checked for you if you chose that option before.
-E-mail Me When I Receive A Comment. You will get a notice that you have a comment on your page in your regular email, not your Spark Mail. This gives you a link to go to your page and see what someone wrote to you.
10. Keep scrolling down to see if you like how your page will look, there is a mock up of it. If you are not happy with it scroll back up to make changes using the same options as before.
11. On the right of the mock up you will see boxes labelled Goals, Program, Personal Information, Other Information and Signature. In the text boxes under each of these labels you can type out as much or as little of those things as you wish. These are for other people to read and get to know you, what you are trying to do, what program you are using, more about what you are like and where you live, interest or hobbies you have, because some people will search for people to get to know based on shared interests and hobbies, so it is good to include them.
12. In the Signature box put in your actual first name if you wish or the nickname you like to be known by and you can add any little sayings or links you wish to share with people or inspire yourself with. (Note: Space for this is limited so don't try to put too many of them in there. I get two links, and two sayings on my posts). These will appear on your posts on the message boards as well as your Profile Picture.
13. On PROFILE PICTURE it will still be blank. Left click the CHANGE THIS IMAGE underlined link under the blank and it will show you the picture you uploaded to your gallery earlier. Left click on that picture and it will now show as your profile picture.
14.Scroll to the bottom of the page and left click on the SAVE YOUR CHANGES button.
THAT'S IT! You now have a Spark Page!
You can return to it to make changes at any time by one of two ways. If you are already on your Spark Page left click the EDIT MY SPARK PAGE button at the top right of the page and it will appear as it did before when you first set it up. Make your changes and then click the SAVE YOUR CHANGES button either at the bottom of your page or in the upper right of your page. The second method, for if you are not on your Spark Page is to hover your cursor over Community and choose Spark Pages from the drop down menu. Where it said Create a Spark Page before now will appear two buttons. left click on the EDIT YOUR SPARK PAGE button and the set up page appears. Proceed to make changes then left click the Save Your Changes button on the top or the bottom (Note: this is also how you post a blog when you wish to write one).
If you have any questions about the directions feel free to SPmail any of our team leaders.

*** Do set your page to PUBLIC so we can interact with you !

I've noticed that when I want to comment on someone's Daily Status, a notices come up that says "Friends Feed is Set to Private"...
Here is how to make it Public, so others can see, comment and encourage you on our Daily postings....

1. Go to any page and hover over the Community Tab
2. Click on Friends Feed
3. When page comes up, click on Settings.
4. Another page will come up where you can click on whatever you want to see on your Friends Feed and what you want others to see...Click on all you want in both columns.
5. at the bottom is another section called Other Friends Feed Settings...
Click on both of those to make your page Public.

Resetting articles, quizzes and A-Z Health items

Once you've read an article or did a quiz or looked at a listing in the A-Z Health...and click on get your points, if you go back and read it again, you cannot get points as they have already been awarded !!!
NOT SO !!!
Here's how to reset the above 3 to get points again.

Go to your START Page and look in the top left corner where it says
Start
Welcome GEMINI-SKY! (Your name will be there)
and
Account / E-Mail Preferences
Click on Account/ Email Preferences
Another page will come up and be on the Account tab.
Scroll down till you see Reset SparkPoints
You can Reset Articles, Reset Quizzes and reset Health A-Z
Click on what you want to reset and then click OK in the verify window that will come up.
Probably a good idea to reset them all while you are there !!!!

Good Day All...
We sure have many new members and, also, older member that aren't participating on our team. I was wondering if it's because you don't have the team email page preferences filled in.

Here's how to make sure you are getting our team emails.

1. Go to your "Start" page.
In the top left corner, under the word START is Welcome and your name...
under that it says Account / Email Preferences.
2. Click on that. A new page will come up with 3 tabs.
3. Click on "Community". A new page will come up showing all of your SparkTeams.
4. Click on the boxes where you want to receive emails.
Well, there you go...Now you will receive our team emails...
Do Come and "Put Up" with us !!!!

Thanks for this thread Gemini! I didn't know I had people who had friended me, but I hadn't friended them! Took care of that, with your help!

I just got an email with a post from the Team Leaders Team regarding picking more than one Emoticon while on the Emoticon page...Not having to keep going back to add an emoticon tab...
I never knew that you could click on the Add an Emoticon tab, hold down the "M" key on your key board and then just keep picking Emoticons.
When you are done picking (you can even go to other Emoticon pages, just keep the "M" key pressed sown at all times) Just close the window manually (x in the top right corner) and your picked Emoticons will be on the page !!!
Try it !!!

Private or Public Spark Page

Making your Spark page public or private is absolutely your choice.

Just go to your Spark page to edit my page

At the top right in edit you will see "More Options"

Check or uncheck the boxes for your preferences.

Make sure you click "save changes" at the bottom.

If your page is private no one on Spark can see it or send you goodies (except for those you have accepted as friends).

If you need help setting your page just let me know.

Good Morning All !!!
Hey, does anyone know about the Red Flag on the left of your START Page?
Wow, Can you get Extra Daily Points using it.
From what I can tell, you click on the Red Flag and a list of Your teams comes up.
Next to each team is a flag, click on the flag, it spins and then shows points...
You get those extra points and so does the team.
Those team points places your teams in a most points ranking order. (do does all of the points from members)
The more points, the higher you are in the rankings.
When members go looking for teams to join, they will see the highest ranked teams First.
Our team is in the Healthy Cooking category and is rated #21
You get up to 5 extra spins per day (1 spin for 5 teams !!!! )
(today I won 49 extra points and 20 went to our team and moved it from #22 to #21 !!!)

Let us use the Red Flag and get our team closer to the Top !!!!
And you can get more bonus Goodie points each day...

If you have any questions, do ask me ! emoticon
Here is a link to the article that might explain it much better...

To change your profile picture...



Just go to your sparkpage and click on Edit my sparkpage. Then go to your Profile Image and click on Change this Image. Under Choose a photo from your gallery, you'll see in smaller print 'also choose from our success gallery'. That's where the weight loss trophies are found.

Do you mean you are Not getting our thread emails?
If so, the reason could be that you are not clicking on them when they come.
For instance, you should have gotten an email for this particular thread now that I responded. (or the next person after you responds)
If you do not click on that email when you get it in your in box, then it thinks that you have Unsubscribed to this thread.

The other reaon could be that you have not subscribed to the TEAMS emails..
If that's the reason...
Go to My Trackers and when the drop down menu apprears, click on Start.
Then under your Spark Name, it says Account/emails preferences.
Click on that.
Then the next page will have 3 tabs. Click on Community tab.
Under Edit Community Preferences, click on Spark Teams.
there you can see all the teams you are on and click which notifications you would liek to recieve via email.
For the teams you are most active in, click them all...
Then you will get new member, new topics, team emails, weekly digest etc, emails.
Hope this all helps.

Nope, I don't get the weekly digest on Sundays, either. I e-mailed them, we'll see what happens! I have the team main page bookmarked so I can find it now!

WATERFELON You are on the right team now. Do you get our team thread emails?
If so just click on one of them to get to the thread, then click on our team name at the top of that page to get to team page.
At least this will help till they get us on your team pages.

Good Morning...Well, you must be a member of this team or you would not be able to post a comment on here.
That's bewildering that it doesn't show up on your teams page.
Maybe email tech support and ask them. It sounds like a technical problem.

Copy and paste this name in a Spark Email, ask yor question and hit send...

SP_STAFF

Hopefully they can help you.

I have a SP problem!

For some reason the Putting Foods Up board does not show up on my list of Spark Teams that I have subscribed to! It used to be there, but now I don't see it on my list and when I go to the Putting Foods Up main page, I don't have a join or leave button, only the invite others button. So I know I'm subscribed.

Any advise on how to fix that, make it show up on my team subscription list on my SP page so I can easily find the team?!

Posting a Blog and adding Pictures...

To add pictures...You have to post a blog...
You can start by going to your sparkpoints page and click on post a blog.
When the Blog page comes up, put in your title and then go to the Blog Entry section and type in what you want to say...
When you want to post a picture, click on the first bar that says Add Picture.
A window will come up that will have a bar next to a blank space that says Brouse.
Click on it. Your picture file will come up. Find the picture you want to post and double click on it, then the original window will be back with the blank space filled in with the picture info in it. Under that it says UpLoad...Click on that.
It will take a few seconds for it to upload and then your blog page will be back with the picture address listed. This all may take some time to process so do be patient.

If you have any questions, do email me...
Hope this helps....

Replying to other members comments on your OWN SparkPage...

Always remember to Reply to another members comments that are on your SparkPage on THEIR SparkPage...

If you get a comment on your page, Go To the other members page and click on Add Comment.

I've noticed that people are replying on their OWN page rather than on the other members page.
So in essence, you are replying to yourself and they will NOT know you replied to them..

Why Am I Not getting team thread emails

1. You need to subscribe to the thread emails to recieve them.
2. If you are subscribed and Stop getting them...the reason is...
Once you recieve the email, click on it, If you recieve the thread email and do nto click on it, then you are automatically unsubcribed.
Go to the team page and go to the particular thread and enter you comments. The next time someone enters a comment, you will get an email for that thread. You MUST click on the email or you will not get further emails.

How do I subscribe to Team emails ?

When you join a SparkTeam, you can choose to receive email notifications when a new member joins that Team and/or when a new topic is posted in that Team. These notifications are optional, but some members find the notifications helpful, especially when a new topic is posted. Using these notifications can make it easier for you so you do not have to search for new topics and/or new members on that Team. On larger Teams though, you may receive a lot more notifications than on smaller Teams, and you may choose to turn the notifications off so you don’t receive so many emails. You can change your preferences for these notifications at any time.

To subscribe to Team emails/notifications: 1.Roll your mouse over the “Community” tab near the top of the screen.
2.Click on “SparkTeams,” which is the third link down.
3.You’ll now see your SparkTeams page.
4.Click on “Manage My Team Emails/Settings,” which is to the right of the heading, “My SparkTeams.”
5.You’ll now see your SparkTeam preferences page.
6.Each of your Teams will have boxes listed next to them where you can change your Team preferences.
7.check the box(es) for “New Member Notifications” and/or “New Topic Notfications.”
8.Once checked, you will be subscribed to those notifications.

Help with the leader/streak info...

If you want to be included in the Leader Boards and Track Your Streaks..Do the Following !!!!

Go to the "My Trackers" tab and hover over it. The drop down window will show "Spark Streaks". Click on it. A new page will come up with all of your Streaks.
Click on the box the says "START/MANAGE STREAKS".
Click on ALL of the boxes in the first column and the ones you want in columns 2 and 3.
Then go all the way to the bottom and click on Save My Changes...
I had to do this too a ways back as some of them go unclicked...Why? I don't know but they did...
When ever you sign up for a team goal, you have to go to this page and click the box to be included in the streaks and leader boards.
Hope this helps....
