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.

Thanks for all your help!!! I'm going on vacation next week, so I will probably start a new group when I come back...if the others haven't decided to blog. I'll let you know the group name.

Again, thanks for the input!!!

will you be logging while you are on vacation? maybe the other members who are not logging are dealing with other commitments, need the group motivation from your log, and will log again when they are able?

No, I will not be blogging while I am on vacation. You can actually put yourself on vacation mode so that peertrainer will not drop you. I know that that the other people are logging in, but not blogging because it has been about a month with no comments. So, if they have other committments, perhaps they are not ready for peertrainer, or they may find it better to join a team instead of a group.

Hang in there!

I'd like to add that it's summer time and MANY people are busy and barely sit at the computer this time of year.

I am an active poster and so are a few other people in my groups. All of us are busy right now during the summer and are doing what we can for logging but I have noticed a BIG decrease in posting but that's not to say they aren't good groups if they don't post comments or log. If you have a question or concern communicate it to the team! I check my groups often just for new conversations right now and if there aren't any I haven't been saying much.

Unfortunately if you are new to Peertrainer I don't think right now is the best time to judge whether it is a good motivator or not for you. People are just VERY busy with family, boating, vacations, added outdoor yardwork, added outdoor exercise, etc. and it's probably safe to say 95% of us are not as active here as we were in the colder months.

Hang in there! Things will pick up again in the fall I'm sure!

Definitely, I agreee-

Summer has slowed down the posting immensely!
I log daily, but sometimes, I sit back and see if others in my groups are posting---I do look at their logs, but it's hard when many don't post...)

So, I just continue to log and post on my more active teams & groups, and occaisionally will throw out a comment to the slower groups to see if I can get any response...

I see your point, but it's hard sometimes when it says that the last time they logged was a month ago, and you know that they are still checking in because they have not been dropped by peertrainer.

The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better.

According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
