Hello, <BR> <BR> It seems I can't receive any emails - including my verification email - because I live within the EU. This means I can't blog. <BR> <BR> Is there any way around this? <BR> <BR> Also, I'm not sure what 'strict' EU rules are being referred to that prevent emails being sent - I'm an email marketer myself and as long as people have signed up to receive emails there is absolutely no regulation that prevents you from sending them.

Tue, 14 Jan 2020 15:16:44 EST How come new members pages are ALWAYS private when I'm a leader on the 5% Challenge on the AWESOME A team. It's so frustrating that new members when they join their pages are always private. It takes so much to help them open their pages (a requirement on the 5% Challenge unless there's a reason they want/need it private which is rare, but does happen). If they can't open their pages because it needs to be private then we have them friend all team members. In general that works, but it's so hard for the new member. <BR> <BR> THANKS!!

However, I have decided to lose it at a slower pace of only 1 lbs lost per week, but when I go under my Start page and I go to edit my weight goals, and I enter the correct date in there that it is telling me would cause me to lose a lb per week, nothing is happening to my caloric intake for the day.

It was always positive and supportive. Recently however, I have found there are a few bad apples. Bullies, if you will. No one on Spark should feel taunted, or intimidated by other members. In this day and age, almost every social media app gives you an option to block people. Can we get an update to allow us to block people that are rude, or cruel?

Today, I found out that I can simply keep looping the same article (via the "Back to blog" button) and the button (to get points for reading an article) to redeem a full 30 points a day.

Thu, 25 Jul 2019 22:18:54 EST Logging out on phone Why does SparkPeople keep logging me from my phone? Thu, 25 Jul 2019 11:02:21 EST SP Site Unstable & S-L-O-W I've started using SP again after being away for at least a year. The site used to run smoothly for me, but now it runs super slow. It's super unstable. Whenever I try to type something, the site seems to have to process everything before something happens. There's an abundance of ads that load on each page now and that seems to be what slows everything down. It's really annoying. This is the only site that causes my laptop to react this way. I'm using Safari. Is there a browser that doesn't ... Thu, 25 Jul 2019 08:03:32 EST Issue with Foods not Copying? Hi all: <BR> <BR> Is there a known issue with foods not copying to different dates?

Tue, 23 Jul 2019 12:53:08 EST I DO NOT want the program chosen for me How do I choose my own macronutrient goals? Your program chose a diabetic program for me, without warning me of what was going on. I am on a KETO diet and DO NOT want an app choosing ANYTHING for me. How do I change this? It shouldn't be this difficult. This is supposed to be a tool to help, which it used to be when I used it years ago. Now it chooses parameters for you. BAD! I do not need to be controlled and told what to do and what my goals have to be by an app then it is impossible to fin... Tue, 23 Jul 2019 03:25:31 EST Apple Health not syncing on correct day For some reason my step count for today is showing up on yesterday in my SparkPeople app... how do I fix?

Sat, 20 Jul 2019 17:06:29 EST Goodies and member selection On the 100 Days of Weight Loss Team that I lead, I'm currently not being able to filter the members to show only the members who have visited the team in the past 30 days. When I click that option (which has always worked in the past!) it shows me just three names (patently not right!) who are not regular participants. There seems to be a bug here - can you fix it? Sat, 20 Jul 2019 04:10:36 EST Where are SP rules of conduct? Never mind. I just noticed the hyperlink at the bottom of the screen: "Review our community guidelines." <BR> <BR> Thu, 18 Jul 2019 20:11:55 EST Advertisements showing up in SP articles Beginning today there are advertisements showing up in the body of SP articles. These advertisements are for the drug Keytruda/pembrolizumab. Are these being inserted by SP?

Thu, 18 Jul 2019 12:39:00 EST Is there a setting to change email default? Every time I post a message in the community feed or on the message board I have to uncheck the "I want an email to be sent to me" box. It's sort of a hassle. Is there a user level setting which will change this default to unchecked? <BR> <BR> And if not, can one be added? <BR> <BR> Obviously some of these message threads are thousands of posts long, so getting email for that (even by accident) is not what I want. I'm sure I'm not alone here. Thu, 18 Jul 2019 09:21:14 EST I lost 100+ lbs Trophy Ok, I finally found the trophy, but how do I put it onto my spark page please?

So unfortunately the Spark create a recipe feature doesn't give a final review of what your recipe will look like, and therefore I didn't catch a mistake I made until I clicked Save. <BR> Is there no way for a creator/contributor of a recipe to Edit it after it's saved?

Thu, 11 Jul 2019 08:53:34 EST Report Export Doesn't Work I noticed this a long time ago (at least a year ago), but always figured y'all knew and would fix it or remove the button. <BR> If I try to have my reports emailed to me, either via the app or the desktop site, it does not email me.

Sat, 6 Jul 2019 07:48:40 EST Sloooow responses If I select a tracker, it takes a long time to respond after I hit enter. Long enough that I presume it didn't take and I hit enter again. If I try to scroll down my list of favorites it takes at least 30 seconds to respond and sometimes much longer. When I ask for a list of nutrients, eventually a blank box appears and after a while the nutrients will be listed. Optimized the disk, cleaned cookies and got rid of junk. Everything else on the computer works at normal speed. I have made no chan... Fri, 5 Jul 2019 16:00:16 EST please helpme out/ I got taken off all newsletters Hi. First my spouse had a heart attack.

Tue, 2 Jul 2019 22:42:24 EST Why is there an inaccurracy? When I check to see how many of our members have been active in the last 30 days, it does not show all of them. It does not show myself as leader, nor the other leaders who have been there. This is discouraging not only to me but others. <BR> I noticed this on other teams as well. What is going on?

Can you tell me how to do it? Many thanks. Mon, 1 Jul 2019 21:21:23 EST how to find out actual nutritional numbers? Hello. <BR> My sparkpeople nutrition thing recommends 100-150% RDA for iron. How can I find out how many mg of iron sparkpeople is counting as 100% of RDA? (Is it taking sex and age into account?) <BR> (I need to know because I need the actual mg iron count on the foods I've entered. They're only showing up as "% RDA.") <BR> <BR> Thanks.

Hello everyone, I've been a SparkPeople member for over a decade but it's been awhile since I last logged in. When I logged in today, my SparkPage is intact but there is absolutely not history in my weight report! That information about myself is valuable to me and I expected it would be safe here. Does anyone know what happened and how I can get my weight tracker data back? Sun, 30 Jun 2019 12:46:44 EST Icons I had finished a post to a friend and wanted to add an icon and instead it said it couldn't find my post so I have lost the whole thing and gave me no way to clear that. It may not seem like much to you all but now I have to start over. Other times the icon tries to come on and the screen keeps blinking white and never comes on.

I can put the name of the food in, but it isn't allowing me to put in the other information such as calories, fat, etc. I get a blue square with a 0 and it won't let me change it to the amounts that should go in there.
