Hello all!

I am very sorry that people outside of the United States will not be able to join us on SparkAmerica. :-(

Please note that we are still building out functionality on the new site. Fitness Tracking is available now by going to Tools & Trackers (on the left) - Fitness Game. Nutrition tracking is on its way and community features after that. For now, we suggest checking out the Facebook group that is linked in the article for community activity.

You will find some great, new articles on the new site, which is something many of you have been requesting.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

It's too bad Sparkpeople is going only to America. I will leave Spark because I'll lose my friends and support. Too bad Spark. What a dumb move

Good Morning Spark Friend's,

I heard, this morning on Community Feed and again here on the Message Boards that Spark People is Closing down in August and only catering to their American Members.

I am so saddened as that means after being a member here since 2010 and Leader and Co-Leader of 6 teams I will no longer be able to be a part of the network as I am a Canadian Member here.

Not sure why, SP is excluding Members who are not living in the USA.

I am sad, I will miss all my friends here when SP closes down. emoticon

Will the trackers be available in SparkAmerica, Coach Denise?

The information in the article about SparkPeople closing is correct. We planned on making that announcement tomorrow, but somehow somebody located the article before the official announcement, and we are sorry that you had to find out this way. We will officially be making that announcement tomorrow as planned and we truly do care about all of our members and will be happy to answer your questions once we are back in the office tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience through this transition!

I'm referring to this article..

Some on the message boards are suggesting this is a hoax as no one takes credit for the article or the announcement and that it seems to be 'hidden' within SP and not out in the open for everyone to see.

If indeed this is correct, there are better ways of making such an announcement to reach the wider membership instead of by 'word of mouth' so to speak.

Specifically the above article advises it will only be available to Americans which will be a big disappointment to your many international members.

I lead 8 teams and would like clarification please so that I may advise other members who will be affected by this decision.
