Sun, 21 Aug 2016 11:58:03 EST Friends list help I have three or four people that I added as friends on my spark page "way back when" who I'd like to remove. The problems is their names are in black and they aren't "clickable". I can't get to a Spark page for them, or find a way to remove them. They haven't been active for a very long time, and I'm assuming they no longer have a Spark page and that is the reason I can't click on them. How do I remove them?

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 04:36:04 EST Can't edit calorie range outside SparkPeople limit I am post-bariatric surgery and on a medically supervised diet. My recommended calorie range is 900-1,200 calories per day, but SP will not let me enter a number below 1,000. I understand that the "average" person shouldn't consume so few calories, but it is appropriate for me. Is there any way this threshold can be changed? Wed, 10 Aug 2016 23:38:50 EST Premium - still getting ads in app I got the premium membership so I would not see the ads anymore. I am not seeing them anymore on the website, but they are still there in the app! I thought it was supposed to get rid of ads everywhere? Looks like a bug to me. Wed, 10 Aug 2016 19:08:22 EST Polar A300 with H7 heart monitor chest strap Hi, I bought a Polar tracker. I was wondering, what you can do with it on Spark People?

I need to change the team title to the correct spelling. Plus, I need to add one item to the title. How do I do I correct the spelling of the team title and add what I need to add?

Whilst doing this I accidentally joined something which is now putting details about testing my blood on the nutrition page. <BR> <BR> I have searched high and low but cannot find where I can change this setting. <BR> <BR> Can anyone point me in the right direction? <BR> <BR> Thanks so much :) Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:29:48 EST Fitbit sync <BR> Can the fitvit be sync to Spark? If I can how would I it be done? Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:58:31 EST Virus Just an FYI to tech that I nearly got a virus off the site yesterday. At the top of the screen there was a message that said I had "2 messages". I thought that was the new way to get 'mail' from Spark People / friends. I clicked and the screen went blue. Fortunately, I got out before it got into my computer...but just wanted you to know. I"m assuming that there are a team of people who are monitoring for these kinds of attacks. It was a little scary.

And that was hard work! lol Plus no mention on my friend feed... what else do I need to do?? Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:40:46 EST Suggestion for Trophies I couldn't find a suggestion box so I'll add it here and hope a Spark Coach /Tech will read this. <BR> <BR> I enjoy trying to improve my percentage of correct answers in the Spark Trivia. I think it would be great for sparkers to be able to be awarded a ribbon or Trophy each time they increase their percentage. <BR> It would be very encouraging and a great incentive to keep on learning about health and fitness! <BR> Thanks, <BR> ~Susan Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:13:41 EST Why can't I access SP from my smartphone?
