I used them more often several years ago. Now there seems to be less direct interaction within teams or on these boards; it's getting harder to find threads that have substance (but they are there if one looks) and many of my teams have less discussion in favor of a quick post on the Team Wall. There's more interaction on the community feed -- I'd guess it has to do with its easy availability.

In short, I'd say I use them less because I interact less and do more quicky blurbs.

I still love receiving them.

It is interesting that despite how many emoticons or goodies any website has available there always seems to be one missing for the on you would like to send. I note that SP doesn't have anything appropriate for a lost love one. It would be nice to have something appropriate to let folks who lost a family member you feel their grief and care.

We do add new Goodies periodically, and I believe we added a new bunch within the last year. We have a small staff so we don't always have time to add new ones, but when we do, we try to solicit suggestions from members.

Thanks,

Bump!

I came here to say this today. What a lovely gift to us all if the Spark Team added a page or two of goodies! New inspirations, Refreshed profile pages, and most importantly, new inspiration for us all to encourage and support one another, which is one of the best things about SP.

Yes, there are many goodies and emoticons that leave you scratching your head and saying "huh?". And I often have something I would like to give to a specific person but there isn't anything close! Like hiking boots for a Spark friend who is currently on a hiking vacation through the hills of Tuscany. I finally had to settle for slippers for the end of her day!

I, too, have thought this for a long time...and more emoticons...some of them are just strange! I always want something basic that seems silly it's not there...like an apple or a book...and I don't mean an apple on a book! LOL
Thank you!

I think it would be neat to see more Spark Goodies added to that part of the website. For example, you could do more specific goodies like pets or musical instruments or flowers/plants/herbs, etc. I don't know. It just gets kind of boring where none have been added in a while.
