On most of all the teams I lead, I used to make the main threads monthly ones, but the activity was so little that I started doing what most others do - and that's to make a yearly one. If there was more participation, I would do it. Whether it was done monthly or yearly, the participation stays the same.

Game, goal and challenge participation is low also, no matter what the game or challenge is. From what I can see from the Leader Forums (you have to lead a team to have access to the forums) just about everything has been tried over and over again. And the truth is that overall SP participation is way down even from 2015 January to February. Feb. as of this moment has 86265 active members while at the end of Jan. there were 110159.

People just don't seem to have or want to put in the time. And the reason I lead this team as many of the others I lead is because no one else wanted to do it.

Val -I know I’m the new kid on the block & I am in NO WAY trying to become the leader. These ideas/suggestions are just from my thoughts of what I’m seeing on the Team Message Boards. I think the “Stopping By To Say ‘Hi’” should be a monthly topic, not for the entire year. To me, a monthly thread is more welcoming than something that is for a whole year . . . . .

Also, make the ‘Did You Gazelle Today?’ topic a monthly topic & placed under the Challenge Forum – and replace the (again) year-long ‘Lets Move!!!’ The topics are basically calling for the same info. True, some people just want to get as many points as they can by posting, but for some, that can be a little overwhelming.

That’s all I can think of right now . . . . . .

Feel free to share any ideas! This, like most other SP teams, has always had a low participation rate, despite many efforts. In the Leaders Forums, leaders are always racking their brains trying to come up with things that work, but mostly to no avail. One could get very frustrated if one let's it get to them or accept that this is just the way it is.

Hi Celeste!

FYI, of the 625 member, only 27 have collected sparkpoints since Feb. 1. And of those 625 members (and of the 27 who have collected those points), only 9 have visited our team page in the last 30 days. This is par for the course for most SP teams. Lots of members listed with very little activity.

Since I first started SP, seven years ago, there were over 250,000 active members and when I look at the overall leaderboards today I see only 52,562 active so far this month.

Just the way it is, sadly!

Good morning all. Has warmed up to -2 now emoticon Going all the way up to +12 today - with lotsa emoticon emoticon emoticon

Amy - doing the recumbent bike is good!!! And that just put me in panic mode because I'm going out to CA to visit DS/DIL & grandsons in April. No gazelle there. BUT, they do have a treadmill!!!! They're big into fitness emoticon BUT, I may be spending a couple of months in FL with my Dad & there's NOTHING at his house . . . . . . But there is a Planet Fitness not to far from him, so I may have to sign up with them for a couple of months....... Give me plenty to think about.......

Hope everyone has a great day/weekend. Sure is lonely talking to myself emoticon

Good morning all. We had about 6" of snow overnight. A few flakes still flying, but I'm sure it won't accumulate.

Happy Monday all!!!

DID YOU KNOW?
Don't throw those potato peels out - they're the healthiest part! They're loaded with fibre, iron, B vitamins and potassium. Instead, toss them in olive oil, sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese and fresh chives, then roast them until they're crisp.

Sounds like an interesting suggestion to me since potato skins are so popular and I'm one who actually does eat all of the baked skin.

Stay warm!!!

My house guest left Saturday & I'm back to my 'normal' routine on the gazelle. I've been working extra hard to make up for the non-10K step days while she was here emoticon In the past, if I missed making my step quota, I'd just give up completely. Gotta change my attitude on that for sure!!!!! emoticon

And the dryer just buzzed . . . . . . Everyone have a great day!!!!!! emoticon

Was hoping this group would start up again. I pulled out my XL Glider, which is the same as the Gazelle but it has resistance bands that I can use. I tried those tonight only for about 10 minutes. I figured I didn't want to try too much because I went bowling earlier today and I know I am going to be feeling that. But this 60 year old woman has to get her act together and get moving more.

Good luck to everyone and hope we can keep this forum going.

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
~Edgar Guest

Happy, Happy New Year Everyone!!!
