I'm still not sold on the Activity Stream being apart of the Challenge pages. I don't see it adding that much value. I would actually argue that it takes away from the Challenges pages ability to inform the user and in-turn confuses them. I understand why the Activity Steam is on the individual tasks pages, because the users needs to be able to discuss each task, ask questions, etc. I could see the Activity Stream being its own page where we send people to discuss the overall challenge? 

I think we should see the Challenge page as an overview page that points the user in the directions they might want to go, while also providing them with key information, but not overloading them with it.

When someone rolls over the individual task they will see "View and Discuss Task" - this will take them to that tasks page where they can read about the task and discuss it with their peers. It's basically the same as the task link. It helps for users to have a visual cue when they rollover the tasks.

That's something that I discussed with John earlier today. I'm not sure what happens when you click on their avatar, but we both agreed that they need to be listed as a resource for someone who needs help with a challenge, task, etc.

Maybe John could elaborate on how he sees this working?
