If Bob Stewart was listening, here are my thoughts.

1) More participation from Bob, especially in thought provoking areas.  I'd love to see him get back to doing some blogging...his posts are insightful.  

2) Better training/education (which I know is underway (I think he is revamping training/videos, will bring more speakers in, have more stuff for newbies

3) I'd like a section created for advice for new agents (maybe a new tab).  Take some of the great posts (and contest written on this).

4) more comraderie via a) meetups set for the year (and 2 week spans), and Raincamp or equiv.  Of course Raincamp would have training.

5) better ability to look at my stats.  I'd like to see p12 Months and past 30 clicks on my posts.  Which of the old ones are still getting traffic?

Jack - Some great answers already have been suggested. I would say that I would like to see how we could get in front of the consumers (home buyers and sellers) more on this platform. More of a way to interact with prospects, although I realize that is not currently how Active Rain operates.

I would also like to see a more improved blog editor, and trainings on ways to improve SEO.

I way to search the Q&A section better.  Or maybe just in general an improved search feature that lets you specify blog/Q&A/all and date range.  Wanted to answer a question on a few day old question and couldn't find it while using the proper search terms.

I know that Ben Kinney and Bob Stewart are listening and I know they're busy, but I would like to see some of Bob's posts like he used to write. 

Improve the way we upload photos for our posts.

Bring back the insightful posts from the different areas of ActiveRain (weren't there a few different profiles?) .   Would love to read more from Bob Stewart and Ben Kinney.   Know Bob is working on the webinars, and looking forward to that, and will help the newer bloggers.

Jack Gerbehy I like AR the way it is. Improvements are good, updates are good, too and so are new features.

In past, while implementing something new or fixing bugs, the things did not go quite right and the 'curtain' was on sometimes.

Having said that, I'd prefer seamless transition to uploading the pictures in the posts - not sure how that can be achieved though.

Add a Q&A search feature and improve the blog writing platform so formatting is not so unreliable and so limited in options.
