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?

FYI -- I could move the disscusion area to its own page for challenges
and the dual functionality of activity stream and disscusion area is
easily separable.
