I have a great pop-up blocker, but lately your new pop-ups aren't being blocked. Have any idea on how to help us out here?

Fri, 5 Feb 2016 11:02:18 EST Not getting points for challenge Joined the Zen fitness challenge yesterday and invited a friend to join me and clicked to get my 20 points...and didn't. Today did the challenge of breathing and clicked to get my 15 points and didn't. What's up with that? Fri, 5 Feb 2016 07:27:16 EST Set 10 Minute Goal to Auto Track Is there a way to set up a line in "Other Goals" to track/streak doing 10 minutes of exercise each day, but auto-tracked, not with the check box? I'm trying to do something similar to how my steps and sleep transfer over from Fitbit. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> Thu, 4 Feb 2016 14:17:07 EST Nutrition Tracker I was fooling around with my nutrition tracker settings and changed it from diabetic to just the nutrition do I reset it for the diabetic again?

Wed, 3 Feb 2016 16:03:47 EST Saved recipes I'm new here and I love all the tools. I'm trying to find how to access the recipes I've saved. Would someone please direct me to the proper link? Thanks! Wed, 3 Feb 2016 13:55:55 EST Spark tracker syncing with fitness tracker How do you get it to stop? <BR> <BR> It's recording things the wrong way, like it thinks I did a "cycling event" when I was on the elliptical, and then will give me like half the calories burn, and there's no way to remove it. <BR> <BR> I imagine disconnecting the Sparktracker will stop it from syncing with the page all together, so is there some way to stop it from syncing with the fitness tracker and not the rest of the site? <BR> <BR> Thanks. :) <BR> <BR> Wed, 3 Feb 2016 13:50:39 EST Responding to Members w/out a Spark Page I would love to be able to respond to members who comment on my blog who don't yet have a spark page.

Wed, 3 Feb 2016 13:49:35 EST Wrong minutes count Hello! <BR> <BR> From time to time, to motivate myself, I look at the leaderboard for exercise minutes in the teams I am in, and I just realized that my monthly total there is wrong (and the board has been updated a couple of times since I recorded my last exercise). In fact, it did record my last period of exercise, only, it didn't record the complete workout. How can this be corrected? Wed, 3 Feb 2016 13:47:48 EST Run Tracking Favourite Is there any way to make a saved run a favourite exercise? I do the same few trips often and it takes a lot of steps to add a saved run (especially when I'm using the app). Wed, 3 Feb 2016 13:44:08 EST Tracker very slow - Help! Hi there all my Spark friends! <BR> <BR> I hope that you are well today. <BR> <BR> I have been having problems with tracking on my Spark page for awhile now and am wondering if any of you are having the same problem. <BR> <BR> I NEED to track my food every day. For me, that is the only reason that I have been successful at losing and keeping the weight off. However, I am finding that the tracking tool is slow and difficult to use. Do any of you have the same problem? <BR> <BR> Every day I... Wed, 3 Feb 2016 11:01:07 EST weight entries being modified I enter my weight in kilos to one decimal place. My entries are being altered to two decimal places. <BR> <BR> So, I thought I would enter two decimals places and entered 74.40kg instead of 74.4kg. And now it reads 74.55kg. <BR> <BR> Two decimal places is meaningless as my scale only displays one. Also, the changes are quite significant and not an accurate reflection of my measurements. Wed, 3 Feb 2016 09:29:18 EST Editing Favorite Foods Help! <BR> <BR> I can't find a way to edit foods I've entered into my Nutrition Tracker as favorites. Please tell me I'm overlooking something. This should SO be a basic option, really. <BR> <BR> Thanks! Wed, 3 Feb 2016 09:22:29 EST Ads on Bonus Spin Every time I try to spin the bonus wheel, an ad pops up that I can't close. They are different every time, but they all say <BR> <BR> Congratulations! Here's a reward for spinning the bonus wheel and then the ad wants my email address. <BR> <BR> If I hit the back button and try to spin, the wheel spins and then the same thing happens where I'm stuck on the screen. <BR> <BR> I think I am getting my bonus points, but I'm wondering why the ads lock up the screen. Wed, 3 Feb 2016 08:54:00 EST Change team goals I went back on the posts to Dec 29 and could not find this topic so I'm sorry if it has been asked before that. <BR> <BR> I want to change the team goals or re word them and I can't seem to figure it out. The edit button will not let me do that and I don't want to delete the goal just reword a few of them. <BR> <BR> Thank you for your help. Tue, 2 Feb 2016 21:39:23 EST How do I find friends?

Mon, 1 Feb 2016 02:33:36 EST Question - Tracker When I had a spark tracker and met my steps I would get a glow award on spark page. Now That I have a fitbit I don't get them anymore for meeting my steps I set. Is this why I don't get them anymore cause I am using a fitbit?

I watched ads to see the plank record and the muscle animation, but when I clicked the elderly ladies lip-syncing, I didn't expect to watch an anti mated animal poop onto an ice cream cone and a garishly dressed man then eat the ice cream. The Squatty Potty may be an ok product to advertise, but this one is beyond terrible. Do you not preview ads at all?

Perhaps this can be addressed by your web people or suggest to the advertiser that tweaking the setup of the ad would reduce annoyance with their product? Surely they want to have an aud...
