Blogging - What do I do when only 2 out of the 4 blog???

Help!!! What do I do when only 2 out of the 4 people blog? The group is public, but the system is not kicking them off. I would like the people to blog, or move on. What can I do?

can you make that suggestion to each of the members who are not blogging?

Start a new group, and invite active loggers to join. There are never enough good groups!

I agree- start a new group!

Start a new group and whisper a comment to the other person who is blogging to come along, then scrap (or leave) the old one...

If you are looking to log about motivation and exercise tips, etc. I would like to join your group. The team I belong to as with most of the pt community threads likes to talk about everything but what the website is designed to help people with....losing weight, toning up, and the like. If I don't find a good group or team soon I am ditching pt all together.

YOU could start a group with those requirements!

I am also in the same group as the OP. When the group was started the profile said that only active posters should join... Oh well, I suppose it's time to start a new group again... I'll post the name after it's created. The focus will be increasing the amount of exercise per week.

When it comes to "active posting" I think the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. People aren't driving you nuts on purpose.

But I always groan when a brand-new PT-er joins one of my groups. Even if they have a profile, and most don't, 4 of 5 don't post at all and get removed by the computer... I think that they're not "ready" for PT yet!

Yea, I think it is rude when people join groups and don't have a profile about themselves yet and don't post comments. I know they are logging on to the site because they don't get kicked off. PT is designed for teamwork, not stalking.

I think if your group is not working it is your responsibility, not some mythical "stalker"-- that is an absurd word. They are just lazy and lack committment, and are not ready for PT.

I agree with you all. I post and log everyday which people in my group say that it really helps them. So why don't they post and log everyday if I'm helping them they could help me in return. Start a team I'll join for sure.
