We've come full circle. I'm Rob Costlow  and very happy to be back bringing you community updates and news. I've been deep into working on the new Active.com with the rest of the team. You may be wondering when the site is going to officially launch. I ask myself the same question. Nah, it's all good. We're currently in soft beta (which you're looking at right now) and the new site is scheduled to go public beta next week. In the meantime I have some great new features to share which will now be available in Phase 1. email and RSS notifications (on all types of content), and your very own personal blog will be available. Already have a blog? No problem, importing tools are available.
