We thought you'd be interested in these two new features!
Reset SparkPoints on Articles You've Read
Some of our "super SparkPoints earners" (you know who you are!) have been running out of articles to earn SparkPoints for lately. We hear you! So, in an effort to let our loyal members continue to earn their daily allotment of SparkPoints for reading articles, you can now reset the articles you’ve read more than 6 months ago—so that you can earn Points by rereading them! To reset your article SparkPoints:
Click on the Account/Email Preferences link on your Start page (under the My Tools tab). Scroll down to the section titled "Reset Articles" and click the "Reset Articles" button and voila! You can now read the articles again and get more Points. Resetting your articles will keep the SparkPoints you earn for previously reading articles. You will lose the next to any articles in the Resource Center that have been reset.
PLEASE NOTE that this will only allow you to re-read articles you read more than 6 months ago; articles you have read less than six months ago will not be reset. Also noteworthy, you must be a member of SparkPeople for at least 6 months for the Reset Articles section to show up on your account preferences page.
New Stay On Track Calendar
We've also added a monthly Stay On Track Calendar to the site, which gives you an easy-to-read, monthly view of what's coming up in your program (scheduled workouts and appointments) and what you've tracked (food, workouts, notes and earned SparkPoints) each day. This calendar is interactive and printable, too!. To see your Stay on Track Calendar, go to the Reports section (under the "My Tools" tab). Scroll down to the "Weight and Other Reports" section to find your Stay on Track Calendar.
We hope you enjoy these new SparkPeople features!

Late last week we launched an enhancement to our Friend Feed feature. Now, when your friends set their status or reach a goal you can leave a comment, and your friend can reply with another comment. You can also receive an email notification when a friend leaves a comment on your Feed.
We hope you like this feature! Please drop a comment in this topic on our Site/Technical Help Forum if you have any questions!

Upcoming SparkPeople Convention + Special SparkGuy Appearance!
In May, we held our first-ever SparkPeople Convention in San Diego, California. You asked for us to bring these events closer to you, so we're happy to announce that we will be holding 2 more exciting events in 2009.
The next “Spark Your Life” Convention will take place in Cincinnati, Ohio—the hometown of SparkPeople—on September 26, 2009! Registration for this event has not opened yet, but you can learn more about the daylong event here and even join our official "Spark Your Life" Convention—Cincinnati SparkTeam if you're interested in attending.
In addition, you can be one of the first to hear Chris “SparkGuy” Downie, CEO and founder of SparkPeople.com, share details about his forthcoming book The Spark on November 22, 2009, in Tampa, Florida. He'll be making a special appearance in a speaker series at the “I Can Do It” Conference, created and put on by Hay House, the publisher of many inspirational books, including The Spark.
Mark your calendar today if you'd like to join us for one or both of these exciting events! We will provide further details on the events—including prices and registration details—very soon! We look forward to seeing you there!

Two SparkPeople members recently appeared on a local NBC station (Sacramento) to talk about how SparkPeople helped them lose weight and reach their goals. Sue (PERKYSUE1) has lost 24 pounds and Michelle (MOM2KNL) has dropped 45 pounds. Both members did a great job spreading the word!
Check out the video of their appearance at YouTube.com.
Let's congratulate these successful members and thank them for sharing SparkPeople with the Sacramento area. You can comment below (or visit their SparkPages, links above) to give them a much deserved 'Woo Hoo!'
