Hi Lise... I'm just sitting here waiting to see what happens. I figure if I have no great expectations about something I have little to no control over, I can't be too disappointed. But I sure would love to see the educational aspect of AR come back.

We hope for total spam elimination. AR has been somewhat of an oasis from all the garbage, but it seems to be on the radar of these losers lately more than ever.

Back to basics.  Putting a to stop the copy & paste posts that have been pervasive, some by long term members of AR, promoting localism posts and dealing with the bugs in the system so that it runs smoothly.

I hope to see more education.  I'm looking forward to Bob's webinars and some form of Raincamp.  I think with the education, all of us can blog better and get found in the search engines better and therefore get more business.

We hope for what everyone here hopes for - a measurable increase in our income due to our Active Rain efforts. Referrals and SEO specifically.

Less spam would be nice, too :)

More fees.

Fewer benefits.

More spam.

I hope we'll see some negatives disappear first, and then some positives emerge (more classes, new features, etc).  I also hope we'll see the return of a very valuable AR employee.  Right before Bob Stewart there were some very good ideas being put in motion, and they ceased completely with all of the changes.  I'd like to see the direction we were headed in regain some traction.

As a newer member, I don't have any past knowledge of what it was like 6 months ago.  I personally have had a pleasant experience thus far.  I would however like to see if there is anyway to link up with more local realtors and loan officers in my area.  If this is possible already, then if you have any advise on this, I am all ears.

I have no expectations so we will just have to see. Too many other things to be overly concerned about.
