Add a Food Enhancement - Spelling Suggestions

Monday, September 21, 2009



Hi everyone

We launched an enhancement to our "Add a Food" food search page last week. We now run a spell check for every food search, and if we believe the result is wrong give some small text saying "Did you mean...". For example if you search for "mayonaise" we will say "did you mean mayonnaise". You can then click on the new highlighted word to re-run your search.

We hope this makes our food search even easier to use. Please reply below if you have any issues or problems, thanks!

  When we add a food that isn't in the list why doesn't it save it so when you type it in again it will just pull it back up? Or am I doing it wrong? I can get it to post it to my current day, but the next day when I type it in it isn't there and I have to retype in again.

  I just watched the video, which I enjoyed very much. It opened my eyes as to how big this really is.

I have been following sparkspeople.com for a few months & have to admit that I am not over weight but enjoys all the articles, tests & recipes I have received as a member. The only thing I can not figure out is how to record in the fitness & food logs. Am I suppose to eat/exercise what they tell me to eat & exercise or do I record what I eat & do at the gym? Can someone please reply. This obstacle is holding me back from really getting into the program. I would like to loose a few pounds & KEEP them off.

FYI - I am Vickison not Viskison. Don't know if it was recorded wrong initially & if it makes a difference.

Help!

30 New Exercise Demos, Including Balance Board Ideas

Thursday, September 03, 2009



Hi everyone!

We wanted to let you know that we've added 30 new demos to our expansive exercise library! Most of these feature an inflatable balance board, which is an inexpensive and versatile fitness product that we also sell in our SparkPeople Store. For those of you who purchased it already, and those who thought about it but weren't sure how to use it, you can refer to these demos for ideas. If you have a different balance board at home or at the gym, you can still follow the majority of these exercises!

You'll find most of these exercises in the core (abs) exercises section, but you can also use a balance board for lower body exercises (such as lunges) and upper body exercises (like several versions of pushups). We hope you like what you see—including our new male "model," Tim—a long-time SparkPeople employee!

To easily brose through all of the balance board exercises, just search at the top of the site for "balance board exercise" and you'll find the entire list!

We've also added a few demos using an ab wheel (here's an example), which you'll find in the Core Exercise Demos section, too. This is a common piece of equipment that many people have at home and at the gym.

Coming soon, our experts are going to create full workouts using these new balance board demos. We also have more exercise demos using other pieces of small equipment, such as medicine balls and foam rollers coming your way very soon!

    Thanks so much! I love anything balance-related. It's the only kind of fitness I can honestly say that I love, so I often do balance activities first and once I'm all happy doing them, then I coax myself into doing cardio or strength.

Thanks in advance for any more balance exercises you will be adding soon, and I'm really looking forward to see how to use foam rollers properly. And please don't forget Bosu!

New page to show popular blog posts

Friday, August 28, 2009



Hi everyone

Members have told us how much they love blogs, both writing their own and reading inspirational entries from other members. So we created a new page to show "Popular Blog Posts." This shows posts from the past few days that have received a lot of comments and "I Liked This" votes.

You can reach this page by clicking on the Community Home tab, then clicking the "Explore More Great Blog Posts" link in the Blogs section of the page. You can also follow the link below:

Changes to Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy

Thursday, August 27, 2009



Hi everyone

SparkPeople has revised its Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy in order to make these policies consistent with our member-focused practices. We are working hard to build a grassroots movement that will help millions for people improve their health and reach amazing goals. Member success stories and testimonials are extremely motivational and help spread the spark. SparkPeople has tremendous respect for our members and therefore we want to be clear about how member information might be re-published.

The main changes are as follows:
1) SparkPeople removed the terms allowing us to share personally identifiable information that you enter in program setup or tracking with 3rd parties. SparkPeople has not ever shared/sold member personal identifiable information, but we wanted to make this an official policy.
2) SparkPeople will not republish user-generated content from private SparkTeams. We have never published content from private Teams, but we wanted to include this in our policy as a reply to member questions.
3) SparkPeople does not distribute user-generated content to third parties that contains member personal identifiable information without permission. Again we have never published user content containing personal information without permission, but wanted to make this an official policy.
4) SparkPeople does aggregate member information such as pounds lost and exercise minutes, so we need to have the ability to collect this data. This is helpful for us to do things like form partnerships with other companies.

Please post a comment with any questions, thanks!

    I re-read all the terms and stuff. I should have just looked here for the updates. I was reading some comments from other sparkers and I think they raised some valid concerns. I do appreciate the answer about how you dont actually own rights to any of our creations. I am an artist as well as a musician and I always take into consideration whether or not I want to share something. Not so much because of your site but because ANYONE can just rip something off or make a "derivative work". What I put on spark is mainly focused on weightloss and getting healthy, I feel like I am contributing to the community rather than trying to further my own cause while on this site. You are furthering my weight loss and healthy lifestyle cause and Im happy with that. Thanks for the update. I will note that private teams and communications are an alternative. Thanks for giving us a choice in the matter. I think many people would be surprised if they read the terms and conditions of sites these days. Its outrageous (I read every site I go on, its a major drag but many times you are only authorized to use the site if you have read them, sound familiar?). Your site is actually pretty laid back and offers the user lots of room -I have read a ton of terms so I know form experience. Other sites actually DO CLAIM OWNERSHIP TO WHAT YOU CREATE!!!! You dont thanks! people: ALWAYS READ THE TERMS!!!!

    In reference to kuzinkeith's message. First of all, I love the creativity of your photo. That cracked me up.

In response to your remark about greed, how can this be considered greedy when they are providing their service for free? I paid for a similar site before I found Sparkpeople and the total got up to a few hundred a year. I appreciate the heart of this site! As far as partnering with other companies and utilizing our success information, I am all for that. The companies who agree to be a part of this site through advertising on here are helpful to know about, and if anything I share on here can help another person who struggles with eating and health issues, then I have paid it forward so to speak.

I understand protecting our identification, such as credit card, social, etc, but this site is FREE so there is none of that type of privacy as an issue. We don't have to live in a state of paranoia just yet. emoticon

    Thank you for answering my question but, to take it further, the issue with "member identifiable information" seems refer to the member written content that has no words that identify the author. I take that to mean that even if the author refuses to give you permission to reprint and/or publish this content, you reserve the right to do so anyway....as long as the member is not identified. That is a bit different from....you couldn't locate the author.

Would you clarify that as well?

Like so many of my artistic brothers & sisters we'll avoid putting anything original on here.

CARLI_MAE 8/28/2009 3:48PM

    Thank you for finally confirming what many of us thought we were reading all along below in your response to COACHPENNY.

Regretably, many of us see the policy for exactly what it is ... a way for SP to profit from our work without having to compensate us in any way as contributors, as defined in the U.S. Code. As far as I know, under other circumstances, the lack of contact information or a copyright symbol on a work, does not exempt those who would duplicate it for profit from liability under the law. Hence the reason you feel it necessary to retain the clause in your TOS/TOU.

I can live with that. Those of us who feel as I do can still comply with your terms simply by not posting anything of significance or importance to us on the site, which is exactly what has been happening since this issue first came up & will continue to be the case. Thank goodness the terms do not require us to "spread the spark" or purchase items from the Spark Store, as I would just as soon give my money to GM ... (oh, yeah, we've already done that ... LOL ... but at least it's having a beneficial effect on the economy).

    COACHPENNY, you are correct that we retain the right to republish without permission. The reason is so that if there is something great that we want to use but cannot contact the person (typically because we don't have a current email address) that we can still publish. However, for our upcoming book we only republished motivational user content segments where we received permission for the member.

    I am happy that you have addressed some of the concerns about user generated content and personal information but, I have a question about this excerpt from the changes to your terms and conditions:

"#3 SparkPeople does not distribute user generated content to 3rd parties that contains member identifiable information without permission. Again, we have never published user content without permission but wanted to make this an official policy."

While you are saying that you have never published user content without permission....the "rule" says that Sparkpeople does not distribute user content that contains member identifiable info without permission.

My concern the qualifier "that contains member identifiable information"

SO, are you saying that if there is no member identifiable info in the content, you reserve the right to publish user content without permission??

It might be splitting hairs to you but, I'd like you to clarify the intent of the inclusion of that qualifier.

Rights to my own writing is an important matter to me and Spark acts as a creative outlet for many of us. I would not want your policies inhibiting the use of this the site in this manner nor inhibit my recommendation that others use this site.

But it seems you will still OWN everything we put in a blog and any recipes folks might create.
You do a lot of good for people with this site. However, your refusal to give up your "ownership" of material we write disturbs me deeply.
You are keeping some creative folks from sharing because of this policy. But, I guess it is YOUR site, not ours --- you've made that clear now.

2. I would like to make all my SP profile & blogs available to SP members only. I don't want outsiders seeing my stuff!
3. Also, I'd like to be able to see a list of who has subscribed to my blog (SP members & outsiders if this is possible). It would be good to have the choice to block certain people or members from reading my blog."

Thanks for the changes you've made, so far.

    Thank you so much for protecting all of us SPARKERS, and watching out for our rights. It is so nice to have a safe place to share and make friends without fear of being exploited. Plus that nothing is free anymore...so this site is such a wonderful thing to have.

    I also agree with Carley6531. Also nice to deal without someone who keeps the customer first.

    I agree with Carley6531, I would also prefer the option of deciding whether or not I want my profile and other activity here on SP searchable on outside search engines.

I do appreciate the summary of the changes to the T&C's. Thank you.
