Thanks Wed, 22 Nov 2017 19:50:10 EST Spell Checker Okay Spark Coaches. <BR> <BR> I know you can only pass on suggestions, but this one needs attention. <BR> <BR> The SPARKSpell checker is a pretty lame product / tool in my opinion. <BR> <BR> I try to spell check my posts cause I like to make people think I'm literate to some degree. However, today just pushes me over the edge. Today I misspelled "dietitian". SPARKSpell checker thinks that "dietician" should be corrected to "detachable". <BR> <BR> Is there anyway to merge in a better spel...

Sat, 18 Nov 2017 21:07:49 EST Salt - your basic in the Nutrition Tracker wrong Since I already voted - I don't know when - this is the ony way I can think to tell you. <BR> <BR> Here at SP, a "dash" of salt is supposed to be 1/8th teaspoon. But check out a dash vs .125 teaspoon - something isn't right. <BR> dash= 155 sodium <BR> .125 (1/8th)= 302 sodium <BR> <BR> they can't both be right. <BR> <BR> thank you.

There used to be a feature where you could add a new food that wasn't listed and then you completed a short form where you looked at the food label and put in the calorie counts and other particulars. Then Spark added everything up for you and added that food to your lists. I can't find anything like that now. Did you get rid of that feature? If not, how to I add my own foods that Spark does not list??? Fri, 10 Nov 2017 09:16:35 EST How: delete Spark teams no longer interested in?

Especially Potassium K with different MG, there are nutrients that are doubled too: Cholesterol, Sodium. Calcium has different mg. too Thu, 26 Oct 2017 17:55:11 EST Blog Privacy Is there a way to set my blog to private? I need some time to work through some things and I like having it all in one place. Thanks Thu, 26 Oct 2017 16:06:19 EST Unfollow in Community Feed = Unfriend? I unfollowed one of my SparkFriends in the Community Feed because they were posting for points, rather than for conversation. Apparently clicking the Unfollow button in the Community Feed also removed them from my friends list, which was embarrassing when I had to re-friend them. <BR> <BR> This was unexpected behavior on my part - so I assume it's a bug, not a feature?

Then I have to go to Google and say spark mail and log in to see if I have mail why is there two separate places to go into. And how do I send spark goodies? It says go to persons page and click spark goodies neither one of these places I log into have t he option. Am I using the wrong two apps? Is there just one?

I cannot figure out how to log my mileage on my phone app. Can only do it from my desktop computer. Am I just stupid or is there not a way to do this? If there isn't, I would ask that sparkpeople please consider adding this feature to the app; would make it WAY more useful to me. <BR> <BR> Thanks!

I am forced to continually reset my Email preferences because I keep getting "bumped off" by Sparkpeople. Spark messages have never been moved to my SPAM folder and whenever an Email is blocked I always get a notification from Comcast; so it doesn't make sense to keep blaming them; since I would be notified if Emails are kicked out. Is there any way we can get the tech people ...

When I enter a new weight for the day it will be fine until I get up then it will be changed to 226 on the chart and last weight measured. Any suggestions?

Tue, 3 Oct 2017 23:38:37 EST Can’t enter foods not listed in “Search” When I try to add nutrition to a food not listed in “Search” my curser jumps between the boxes and enters the information in the wrong box — it will not allow me to correct it.

Mon, 2 Oct 2017 16:43:38 EST Searching for food items in the SP app I'm loving the new SparkPeople app. It's a big step up from the older one. I do need one thing clarified, though. When I search for food to enter in my daily tracker, I cannot get it to search the standard list of items available to all users. For instance, on the website, when I search "couscous," it comes up with about 14 different options. In the app, it only gives me the ability to search my recent foods, my favorites, groups, and recipes. Am I missing something? <BR> <BR> Thanks!

I thought I did, on the mobile device but now on my graph it looks like it went back to my start date and dropped a line on the graph and now I look waaay behind reaching the new goal, when all I wanted to do is keep the the same goal loss trajectory and update calories if needed. How do I fix it or undo it all? Discouraging!! ... Fri, 29 Sep 2017 09:49:12 EST Can we report something on the Community feed? HI!! I saw this tonight and of course CRINGED!!

Sun, 3 Sep 2017 09:55:36 EST Keep having to reset emails - Since Sept 1 Hi, I have had my same email address for 20+ years and had no problems receiving my spark emails there up to and including Sept 1. On Sept 2 and today, SparkPeople keeps asking me to reset my email address, it automatically checks off the box that says 'Never email me again' (which I have to keep correcting), and I have not received any emails for those 2 days. There has been no change in my email address. Is there a way to override the system so that I will receive emails again? Sun, 3 Sep 2017 09:43:12 EST "enter a food not listed" option on app I was just wondering if there was a way to edit something I entered under the "enter a food not listed" section on the app. I entered a new food & saved it, but after saved, I wanted to make a change, but couldn't see how do do that.

Hi there, <BR> <BR> I noticed while looking at my daily report a BMR number. I have no idea why this is the number listed since I'm not sitting in bed all day. I work a physical job and according to my I phone tracker, I walk 3-4 miles a day plus the light work. Some days I am lifting heavy things and really working, but not to a sweat. <BR> <BR> I estimate I burn anywhere between 500-700 calories a day working, so my RMR is around 2750. If I work out that day it's even higher. I keep my c...

I've noticed that when I login to Sparkpeople after 9pm pacific time (after midnight eastern time), SP thinks it is the "next day" and thus my daily login streak has been broken. Is this a known problem with the system? Or is it understood that we all base a day on Eastern time zone? Thanks, Anita Wed, 23 Aug 2017 00:46:48 EST Question about exercise login I'm trying to log in calories burned from steps taken today, but it isn't allowing me to do so. What could I be doing wrong.

But I don't know if it is something that SP can do??? <BR> <BR> I know I can add sugar as a nutrient to track under the weekly totals for my nutrition tracker. Is it possible to add it where the daily totals are listed (i.e. total calories, carbs, fat, protein, fiber)? I feel like if it was there along with the daily totals (instead of just under the weekly totals list) it would be "in my face" ...
