I agree! It is nearly impossible for me to get to my teams from my iPad.

I agree that most of the teams are dwindling away; I think the HomePage Community Posting has hurt the individual teams.
I'd hate to see this one go . . .

As long as the team is here, I'll keep spinning for it and checking in when I can.

The question is "Should we keep this group going?" I hope so, I just got here! emoticon

I am happy for the weight I lost. When I joined Spark People the first time in 2011, I was obese. Now I am back and have a few pounds to go!!

Congratulations!
Colman has earned his Intermediate Trick Dog and his CGC. We also do Dog Agility. Some events we are in Class 3 and we are stuck in class 2 for some. We may proceed slowly, but we have a blast!

We'll just keep plugging away, as time allows. I was on vacation for a week and had a great time.

As far as my dog goes, I've gotten several titles on him. He has his Therapy Dog Distinguished, Trick Dog Advanced, CGC. CGC Community, and his CGC Urban. We've also dabbled in rally and barn hunt. My dog loves it all.

I hope everyone is doing well.

For the most part, I use the SP app . . . I don't spend much time sitting at my computer.

I agree that most of the teams are dwindling away. But we've been here for so long . . . I'd hate to see it go . . . but I would certainly understand as I know teams take a lot of energy and time -
of which most of us don't have much extra.

As long as the team is here, I'll keep spinning for it and checking in when I can.

I like daily questions too, but if I am busy, I won't get to them for maybe a day or so, or even later. As I would have to think about how I was answering them. I like daily chats where I can just copy and paste in the same message to several or all my teams. So I can hit more teams that way easier, then having to think and type up a special message for most of my teams. So I am not saying get ride of special things like that, but include a "Daily Chat" that is pinned up close to the top of the threads so people can find it easy and just copy and paste stuff in there if they want or need to do to be more active on more teams.

I always enjoyed the daily question for the day when Kitty was posting. Seemed like more people would participate with that activity. But I, like Janette, haven't checked in as much anymore as life got busy with my senior doggies and my Dad, as well. I will try to do better and check in more often again. I miss seeing some of the regulars that would give comments almost every day, so just wondering where they are too. Cindy

Sorry I turned off notices to most of my teams a few yrs ago went I went back to work. Just too hard to keep up with all the emails from all the teams. Life got to busy for me. I was still checking into sp, but not as much or as often during the day. I didn't drop out of teams, I just stopped checking into and posting in a lot of them, and others I just kind of alternate checking in with on and off. I mostly just check into the one team for the Wii Fit Plus that I started co-leading right after joining SP, and then shortly later took over as the other co-leaders stepped down or left the team.

I am still here. Will try to check in more often again. But it is up to everyone else to keep the team or drop it. Janette

Livinhealthy9,

I agree with the life gets busy. That's what happened to me. I too like the team members and the few posts that are here. Also, it's a nice way to keep track of members when they blog. I guess we'll just wait and see.

Thanks for your input,
Mako

Hello,

Not sure if we should close this team or not.
I know that SP has gotten so big, and there have been a lot of changes on the site which I think has caused some members to drop off. Also, life does get busy! I know I don't spend as much time on SP as I used to, I just don't have as much time.

My dog passed away 4 years ago, but I stayed with the team because I liked the team members and liked to post here. But, the team posts have really dropped off to nothing.
So whatever you decide to do, I will be ok with it.

Hi,

First, I will apologize that I've not been around for two months. Life got crazy, I went through a mini pity party and then I decided to start training for a 50k. I just ran a 31k on Saturday and checked email today and I received a sparkmail from a member. Thanks Cherriet.

Secondly, I scanned the posts and see that hardly anyone, maybe no one has posted while I was away. My question is, should we just close this group since it is so inactive? I am willing to stay on, but if no one else is "around" I feel like I'm changing pictures and posting for myself.

Just asking. Responses are welcome.


~Mako~
