I've also noticed that the wheel only spins if I have that page open. For example, if I start checking my email in another tab, the wheel stops spinning until I come back. Hope this helps.

When I use a computer at a hotel business center, it does not always have flash installed. When that happens, you can click on the spot where it says "click here" and you will see your supposed points. Then it is usually only one or two - the wheels don't even have a one point station. Why are we penalized for not having flash. This has happened more than once. Same thing with the bonus wheel...it's even lower than the usual low the wheels have been eeking out lately. And there always seems to be a lot of comments on the wheels - on all the message boards, on all the teams, too. If this is obviously such a marvelous motivator when we start our day, why are the wheels getting lower and less rewarding than they used to be? Do we somehow get lower wheels when we reach higher levels. I used to see many more goodie points when I first joined. And, no, I don't seek these points instead of the others - I try to get the max every day. I've learned a lot, communicated a lot, and tracked everything for almost eleven months. But I still love the points!

Do you have the latest version of Flash?

You might want to make sure you have the most current version of Flash on your computer (which is what makes the wheel spin).

why does it take forever for the wheel to spin on my start page?
