Ooops! There goes another one... (short rant)

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Well, there went my 80+ day spin the wheel streak...I really don't think that spinning the wheel should count toward a "log in streak". Sparkpeople, can you program the site to count the "real" log in (putting in our username & pw to use the site) for that streak? Many times I'll come to the site via an email notification, then go off some other rabbit trail, never hitting the start page.

I find it frustrating when I blow that "log in streak" when I had visited and logged into do something.
emoticon I just didn't spin the silly wheel.... Grrrrrr. My rant for the day.

I'm all better now. emoticon
It's a brand new day. And I have a brand new "log in" streak...when really I don't. emoticon

    I often forget to spin the wheel then manage to spin it every day for a while. As it is a smaller than it used to be I tend to forget about it. I too go via emails some days and miss the start page so I know what you mean. emoticon

    I know exactly what you mean! I sort of get a bit "down" when I break my streak even though I've been on the site that day but just forgot to spin the blessed wheel.

    Sending big hugs your way!

    I have the same gripe. My problem is that I log in and see that I have mail waiting so I go check that first and then wander off in search of friends and shiny things. Then I log out and don't realize until the next day that I've ruined another streak and another month's "perfect attendance".

    You go, friend! I feel the same way!!! I understand why they don't use the log-in because of people (like me) who have it "remember" me. There has to be a better way...like when you first earn Spark points in the day, the wheel should pop up. G-d knows, so much in which I'm not interested - i.e. pop up videos that slow down my computer - pop onto the screen. Nothing is as frustrating as seeing that "0 Day streak" when I know I'm doing far more important things on SP than spinning the wheel.

    Okay...thank you for the chance to rant! Think I'll find the suggestions message board and post a request that it changes...Join me!

    I love that you added that silly wheel! It is also rather amusing that NOT spinning that thing can be as irritating as it is.

    Yes...it's just another day emoticon
