Thank you Coach. I learned 2 new things about SP!

I think that same silhouette on my phone means to add that person to an existing contact.

I paid for ad free on Spark People however when I get emails and such articles as this link,
https://www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog.asp?post=amanda_lost_40_pounds_and_gained_confidence&utm_source=sparkpeople&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=best-of-sparkpeople&utm_content=F2

It is advertising for Jenny Craig. This is a sneaky way to still get advertising in for a company although I am a premium member. This is only one example of how advertising gets put into an other wise ad free site. I have also seen ads for shoe companies, fitness workout clothing companies and more by incorporating them into the articles I read..

Not really getting an ad free site when these are put into what Spark People deems as articles to read and health, nutrition and fitness.
Just saying.............

Hi HAWKTHREE,

When you don't see the Report link in the Community Feed, click on the date/time stamp for that post. It will open the post and the Report link will show then. Sorry it is kind of hidden like that. :)

When you click on that person silhouette, it means you want to Follow that person. That icon will always be green for someone you are following; gray for someone you don't follow. Hope that makes sense!

I can never find the "report Link" on the community feed.

And while I'm asking something, what is the meaning on the shadow-y person silhouette in the upper right hand of the feed. If I click it, it turns 2 sequential posts to a green check.

Hi,

I will go scroll through now and see if I can spot them. You are right that it is against our terms & conditions. Please note that it helps if you use the "Report" link to report anything inappropriate like that in the future as it provides us with a link directly to the problem post. Sometimes you have to click on the post in order to see that link.

Thanks for letting us know & for helping keep SparkPeople free of unwanted posts like that.

I think you are correct....! Very irritating.... Do you realize you can lock the Community Feed to show only your Spark Friend's input? That action will help filter out the unwanted.....

I just wanted to point out that there are a number of ads in the community feed for products. I'm assuming this is in violation of a member agreement.

Consistency is key. But moderation is up there.
