Can you not input an ingredient not in the spark database on the recipe calculator anymore?

Tonight I went for a walk and the GPS tracker in my iPhone spark people app. When I got home it said I walked over 3,000 miles. I've GPS tracked my walks in the past, and they've all been accurate in the 1 mile I did. it also said I ran 10 miles per hour. I was walking at a 2.7mph average. Now my mileage is all messed up and I am unsure how to get rid of awards I received due to the inaccuracy. HELP? Anyone?

I've been on SP for a month now and I'm finally getting into all of the great reporting features available.

Mon, 3 Aug 2015 08:35:59 EST Slow response time on nutrition tracker Several weeks ago I noticed that my response time when using the nutrition tracker becomes almost unbearably slow after a few clicks. I am running Windows 8.1 and don't appear to have any response time issues with other programs or even other areas within Spark (at least that I've noticed so far). I've tried rebooting several times but it continues to slow down each time I try to log my daily food intake. Any ideas?

On day 1 I spent 22 minutes on my exercise bike with the tracker first on my shoe (the first 11 minutes) and then on my waistband (the second 11 minutes) and it didn't show any workout minutes at all. I did it in 2 sessions to check the difference in placement, I was watching a show on my computer and finished 24 minutes of the program (according to my computer) and the timer on my bi... Wed, 8 Jul 2015 22:03:29 EST fruit and veggie counter I notice that water can be marked on the start page AND in the nutrition tracker. You can register your consumption in either place and it is updated in both locations. <BR> I would LOVE it if the veggie/fruit tracker could also be in both places. I would be able to keep up with it better as I add food to my tracker - to be able to mark veggie/fruit servings in the tracker ...on the same page. It is bothersome to have to go back to start, and sometimes I forget. If you could make this additi... Wed, 8 Jul 2015 08:31:38 EST Flash player Spinning wheel Every time I come to spark people on my desk top it tells me I need to update my flash player in order to see the wheel spinning around. I'd like to update my flash player for other sites, but I don't want to have it work with this site because that spinning wheel is a system hog and locks up my video many times. is there a way to disable flash player just for sparkpeiole?

I registered on SP on 7/21/2011 when I inputted my weight at that time. I assume that by doing so I had become a SP Member on that day. It was not until 9/19/2011 that I set my goals. This was because I was familiarizing myself with how SP worked during that time. So I am puzzled as to why the "date became a member" on my Spark Page shows that it was only on 9/19/2011 and not the date I registered. <BR> <BR> Can someone tell me why I only became a member some tw...

I check out a new one or 2 a couple times a year and it's getting VERY frustrating because most of the teams I click on haven't had any activity for months. <BR> Maybe it's time for Spark to have a moratorium on starting any new teams and try to get some of these dead teams weeded out.

It is a great resource. The one suggestion I have is the serving amount. It is missing in the vast majority of recipes, the only way to find out is to make it and then measure it yourself and determine the size of the portion. Most of them just say 4 servings or 8 servings. I would like to see a serving size be a mandatory input, one of the reasons is that sometime I make a recipe and it looks like it is a ...

I've been on and off this site for a while, and last time I was here, the fitness page had the option to let Sparkpeople pick a workout that you follow. Is that not an option anymore? I just looked all through the site and can't find it. :-( I do have my fitbit connected to it, but I liked the idea of having sparkpeople tailor a fitness plan for me.

Fri, 22 May 2015 08:21:41 EST Android app - weight tracking graph The weight tracking graph on the android app has no way at all that I can find to give a different starting date. It should have buttons that choose "1 months", "2 months", "3 months", "6 months", "1 year", "Custom", "Inception" or something like that. <BR> <BR> It should also have an option to use weekly averages rather than daily check-ins as the data points. That is a much more useful figure. Fri, 22 May 2015 03:12:12 EST Weight tracking report needs improvement The weight tracking report is way too simplistic. Here are my suggestions. <BR> <BR> * It needs buttons to set the start-date: "1 Week", "1 Month", "2 Months", "3 Months", "6 Months", "1 Year", "Since Goal Start", "Earliest", "Custom" <BR> <BR> * It needs to have an option for displaying weekly averages instead of daily check-ins. <BR> <BR> * It needs to save your most recent settings so every time you go back it chooses the same defaults Fri, 22 May 2015 03:07:34 EST Not Able to Open Up Friends Pages on iPad not able to open friends pages by clicking " My Spark Page" button on my iPad.

This has probably been asked before but I can't find it. <BR> <BR> I'd like to remove my FitBit from my tracker so I get a truer fitness minutes number. I looked at how to un-synch it and it looks like it'll also un-synch my Aria (FitBit scale) too. Is there an easy way to remove the FitBit but continue synching the Aria scale? <BR> <BR> I guess I can un-synch both and then add only the Aria.
