WAIT A MINUTE!! WHERE are the AR points for my peers?

By
Mortgage and Lending with Seacoast Mortgage Corporation, RI (20021119LB & 20031576LL), MA (MC2107) & CT MLO 10920

Ok...where did the points go for everybody?  We are missing a piece of AR we all enjoyed seeing! Have you noticed your point tally on Active Rain no longer is publicized?  Click on your state and see the changes that AR made.  For one, you no longer know how many points you need to step up to the next level or how many the step below you has to go to catch up to you.

Is all this important anyways?  In the scope of life, NO, but AR can be a game of sport which encourages blogging.  The blogging also creates increased visibility on the internet for consumers to notice us.  We also learn from each other by increased blogging.  By the point summary going away, we may now all lose a bit.  Some of us may blog less.

What do you think?

I do like the "CALLED SHOTS" feature.  This feature creates another "game".  We each have 5 shots per day to pick a post which we feel will become a featured post.  If we are right, we receive a "badge".  I just tried this today, so I do not know what a badge does for me, but AR has piqued my curiosity!

Changes are usually good.  So, AR creators, I am hanging in here and going with the flow because I see the advantages of being here are many!

Well, Ann, your post seems to be the overwhelming feeling of AR members. Karen Anne Stone, and Endre Barth among others, wrote compelling posts expressing the same dismay. In California, with over 27,000 members, I, at 105 and 136,000+ posts had been on page 4; now I don't exist. Hope it changes back--the sooner the better.

YOu are right, there is no bar to shot for now??? What happened, did someone complain, I was working diligently to get to the next level, now I have pie in the sky to shot for!!!  Kinda possibly defeating, I will have to sleep on this, seems unfair???

Lottie, OUCH!  I went to CA and looked for you: GONE! You should call AR: you worked too hard for this to happen!  I trust they are working on the glitches to their new system, but I would still call.  You deserve recognition!!  Thanks for the comments all!

I just re-checked Arizona.  The same 2 individuals repeatedly are in the section labeled Arizona Real Estate News.  Does anyone know how to get your blog post into this section?

The elimination of ranking also eliminates the ability of customers searching for a local agent experienced in their market on this platform.

Ann, alot of hub- bub & brouhaha about the new design & points disappearing...it just says to me to be consistent & blog better & often...i think the 2 top spots are the best & that's a long way off for me...AR staffers are listening though!
