So who's winning the spotlight?

When do we vote people off? How does that work?

the participants in the spotlight are winning just by being participants. the rest of us win by following the members in the spotlight and learning from them.

The winner is....

Anyone in the spotlight that manages to actively log during the whole entire time and set a good example. So often I see many who just fizzle before their time in spotlight is over - not very motivating for the rest of the community.

But THANK YOU to those of you that do set a good example of what Peertrainer is all about - you are the winning spotlight members!!

I totally disagree with this whole special olympics approach to the spotlight. I say lets identify the weakest link in the chain- the person least committed and helpful-- and HOUND THEM off the spotlight. Maybe of the site altogether. Because who wants someone around who is not a team player. you know?

No, I'm not joking at all. I thought this was a "biggest loser" kind of thing, someone wins right? I don't undersantd the notion that "participants are winning just by participants". What is the sense in that?

See the NYT article on marathons linked to below. Seems like most people "win" by finishing.

The spotlight is'nt supposed to be a competition; it's just a window of time that you commit yourself to reaching your personal goals. By being "in the spotlight" you are more likely to follow through. That's all!

You don't vote anyone off. I do think that 2 teams competing would be cool.

this was funny. I clicked in thinking the spotlight had changed but I didn't know the new "voting off" thing.
