• How do I add or edit the ticker on my Message Board posts?
Some members like to share their progress with the SparkPeople Community. One way to do this is to add a ticker to your Message Board posts.

To add a ticker to your Message Board post:
1. Roll your mouse over “My Trackers” in the top left corner of the screen.
2. Click on “Start,” which is the first link down.
3. You’ll now see your Start page.
4. Click on the “Account/E-Mail Preferences” link in the upper left corner of the page.

9. Check the box that says “Yes! Show my ticker on the Message Boards and my SparkPage.”
10. Select the ticker option you would like.
11. Once you select your ticker, a new section may open up below your ticker option. If a new section opens up, you will need to enter more information, such as a date, start weight & goal weight, type of event, what you gave up, etc. (Dates should be entered as m/d/yyyy. Ex: 1/1/2011)
12. Click on “Chose a ticker icon.”
