Maggie: Yes, you should see a pop-up cloud that indicates the action, and it should be logged in your Profile at the Sparks tab. We'll look at that. Meanwhile, can you try again later? Thanks.

Wow, that was informative.  Glad I read it.  Glad you wrote it. I'm inspired to keep working on my own details and iterations.  I like the MVP acronym. I hear a lot of coach speak that involves the words "details", and "clean up".  The Red Wings coach (who is well respected) utters those words almost every......

It's a ton of work.  You articulated it well.  Reminds of me of helping develop software for meetings & incentives years ago.  No one can see behind the curtain how much "one little ask" or "feature" takes.  Keep it up!  We're cheering you on!

That's excellent. There seems to be a lot of available courts. They seem to go unused pretty often, which is good for you and dad. By the way, I was watching the French Open this weekend and reminded what a nice sport tennis is in general...John McEnroe is a great TV commentator.
