If you don't want to get email notices when a new challenge is posted, that's okay. All you have to do is look for the Forum Header that says, "Quickfire Challenge of the Day."

There is a sticky post for the day with the Quickfire Challenge, another for the Quickfire Challenge Plus, and finally one for discussing the Challenges of the Day.

You don't have to comment anywhere or do anything other than make time in your day to do the Challenge(s).

I really like how this Team keeps a very organized and clean subsite, actually. It helps people like me who are prone to visual over-stimulation a LOT. I know that ALL the information I need to get the job done is in the SAME place, EVERY day, without fail or change. Anything else I wanna read is extra. Can't tell you how nice that is for me.

It IS a sticky topic.. the challenges get posted before most of us are awake. The problem was that people would be attacking the challenge with Im in , count me in... oh i love these.. etc etc.. unless u know to click the button that puts the #1 post 1st(thats how I have been doing it all along) its easy to loose the QF of day.

Im glad that there is a seperate area to say how u did with the challenge... and aside from a few now n again, most people have been listening/reading the post and reading spark mail asking we not reply to that topic.

I hope you are now able to find the challenge. I think its a bonus to do these QF .. it has helped me so much.

I agree with Pamela. I wanted to start my day off with the challenge, it is confusing! It would be much easier if it was one of the sticky topics so it wouldn't get buried throughout the day.

Pam I have to say...please don't give up on the team or spark people!
I know how frustrated you feel!
When I joined I had never used computers before at all...can you imagine how lost I was?!?!
Now I know if I figured it out that you can too!!
It took me all night with the help of others to find the challenge when I joined...I was crying b/c I got so frustrated...it sounded so simple...I just could not find the challenge!! I wanted to give up I got so aggravated!
I thank the Lord that I did not give up!
Spark People and this team in particular have changed my life!!
I hope you find your way around...it gets easier once you play around with it!
Good luck to you!

I'm sorry you weren't able to find the Quickfire Challenges and will be leaving the Team. I have found this to be one of the most supportive and caring environments online or off. My life has definitely been enriched and improved by the daily motivation Kelli, Leep, and Truckin provide by way of challenges and comments on my SparkPage. I have often wondered how they have time for themselves with as much as they give to the community.

The team leaders work with the tools they are given and the format for each Team is uniform. There is a stats block, a quick overview block of blogs, announcements, photos, etc.

These are the same for each and every Team site at Spark.

Then there are the Forums.

If you look under the General Team Discussion and the Introduce Yourself Forums, you will find the QuickFire Challenge of the Day! Forum. In here, by date, you will find each Challenge. All you have to do is click on the one for the current date, sort by first post on top, and you have the Challenge.

I get the Quickfire of the day in my email. This is very easy to set up if you follow the instructions provided by one of the other posters above.

I hope you will reconsider, and avail yourself of the energy and expertise of some of the best team leaders Spark has. Either way, I wish you the best of luck in your journey toward health and fitness.

Thank you for that! YES! That is exactly what I did and on my computer all the does is take you to the site with a gal with great abs, blogs, new people, huddle...there is no Challenge obviously listed??? It should be right at the top that says date: Challenge for today! Where is the challege? Everything I click on leads me to more blogs! its very frustrating and really needs to be changed. I find every team site to be very confusing and very user unfriendly. Im smart with computers but I am so use to a professional site being obvious!! This takes way too much time. I will just track my own calories and exercise. That is easy to find and very obvious. Someone needs to make a note to the makers of this site but I cant find the proper blog site to do it because its too confusing!!!

You just need to go to the QuickFire Challenge of the Day Forum towards the bottom of the main page. There you will see the QuickFire and QuickFire Plus challenges. Sometimes you need to scroll to the very bottom of the challenge (which is why I think they just recently changed it), it is easier to just click the button for the first blog to show and there is your challenge.

I automatically get them to my e-mail because I checked that I wanted that.

Pam, I'm new here too ! I find the challenge about mid way of the team page with today's date beside it and a Quick Fire Plus right below it. Just recently the leaders of the team requested that everyone stop replying and only read on these listings, so that will make it easier too. Keep tryin, once you get used to where to look you may enjoy the challenges, I do!

On the right side of your screen under quick links, click on my sparkteams. this should give you a list of the teams you have joined with boxes that you can 'tick' or 'untick', make sure that the QuickFire Challenge new topic notification box is ticked, this way you get the QuickFire challenge emailed to you everyday! No more searching for it! Hope this helps.

Im new here but it is very difficult when I come on this site to find the quick challenge of the day!
Every where I click is just someone's blog about how they are doing. That is great but there should be a place in the same place on the site every time that you can click and simply find the challenge. This is very frustrating for me because I dont have time to sit and read all the blogs trying to find out what the challenge is for the day! Its no where to be found. This site is not user friendly so I will go to another team.
Very frustrated. Please tell the people that set up these sites to make it easier and obvious to use...

Pam
