  1. Background: I made a new goal with a week of buffer, set a break or two for it, then decided I didn't want the week of buffer and retroratcheted.

    I found that retroratchet moved the breaks forward as well. This is a little counterintuitive, at least given the usual use of breaks for vacations/days off. The only break I'd expect to be affected is any break I'm currently on (i.e. if I'm signalling I didn't want to take that break after all).

  2. Say I spend a weekend working hard on a goal and end up about a week ahead. (Concrete example: I'm going through a textbook and converting vocabulary to flashcards, beeminding pages processed.)

    At this point ... well, I'm a week ahead, and Beeminder's not going to give me any incentive for all those days till I get close to eep again.

    If I want to destroy that buffer and continue at the same rate with a sooner goal date, I can retroratchet.

    But with the goal being less about working hard (like exercise goals or bad habits are) and more…

  3. AKA give me a trendline than handles periodic noise

    Like a lot of people who menstruate, my weight fluctuates naturally in semi-regular cycles. Beeminder has really fancy graphs, but it seems like all of the smoothing tools are designed to handle random noise but not periodic, correlated noise. It would be nice if one of these tools (moving average, polynomial fit, optimistic projection) were capable of taking into account the sine wave and showing me the real trend.

    For example, every time I enter the peak of the cycle, the optimistic projection freaks out and flattens a lot of my…

  5. Spending a certain amount of time per week with your heart rate around 130 beats a minute is a very common way to discuss low-intensity fitness/weight-loss programs. Tracking this is one of the major reasons I decided to get a fitbit.

    Fitbit calculates and exposes this data: https://dev.fitbit.com/docs/heart-rate/

    As a web developer I kinda wish there was a beeminder-contrib I could open a pull request on...

  6. I retweet plenty. I want to make sure I do my own original tweets.

    My ideal would be a do more of only normal tweets, but as you have a do less and retweets only already implemented (according to http://blog.beeminder.com/twitter/ ), a work around for me would be combine a general do more with a retweet do less, if you exposed the functions.

    Also, twitter is missing from https://www.beeminder.com/start

  7. Right now, after I make an entry for the preceding day (e.g. I might have forgotten to copy the # from Habit RPG to Beeminder), I have to e-mail support@beeminder.com. After they fix the graph, I don't find out about the change until I read all my e-mail, which might not happen until several days later. By then, I will be derailed again and the entire misadventure will go on forever.

    Since Beeminder already has a mobile application, it would be really helpful if the mobile software notified me when support has touched the goal. I realize that by…

  8. They can not exceed 16.01.2038!
    Let me know when it happens to changes my goal date from 2038 to 2068. What is the earliest date for removing the 2038 limit? Is it a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2038_problem?

  9. I searched for this topic in the forum and did not find anything similar, however, I apologize if I am duplicating a comment. It would be awesome if we could annotate our graphs and see those annotations by hovering over the appropriate spot on the graph, similar to the way commenting is performed for songs in SoundCloud.

    I sprained my ankle last week and had to adjust my fitness goal to be more flat. It would be great if down the road, when I have forgotten about the injury, to be able to hover over a flat spot and see…

  10. Send daily mail or mobile notification with info about the increases in goals data and the time left until derailment.
    This will be great for keeping up with progress and focusing goals with imminent deadlines.

  11. Currently supporters are only informed about it after you actually derail. This isn't terribly useful to me; at this point it's already "too late" to do anything to prevent the derail.

    Support an option to alert supporters to the situation when a goal has less than X days to derailment, so that they can help motivate you to get off the coach or whatever it was you promised to do.

  12. You can still type the route in and get the page, so it seems pretty harmless. Loving the recent ui updates, though :)

  13. Simple: specify a particular cell of a particular sheet as an odometer

    Sophisticated: specify date and data-value columns from a particular sheet.

  14. For goals which require bigger chunks of time to progress on, it might be useful to get warning messages 2/4/8/... days out.

    E.g. if my goal is "spend two hours a week meditating", and I've committed that all my sessions must be at least an hour, then on an emergency day I still need to find an entire hour spare rather than 2/7ths of one. Knowing that the deadline is coming a little further out would help me manage multiple time-intensive goals deadlining around the same time.

  15. International (Australian) user, wanting to avoid exposure to currency risk on my pledges :)
    It's pretty scary to see the effective value of your pledge go up by a big percentage over a couple of months!

    I remember seeing a comment on a blog post a while back to the effect that Stripe in-principle allows for charging in different currencies, so hopefully this is feasible?

  16. has been discussed here:
    http://forum.beeminder.com/t/giving-me-a-reward-to-motivate-me-to-retroratchet/744

    Briefly:
    Please give me some incentive to Retroratchet. Make me feel happy doing it. I cannot lose my efforts and throw it in the sea. I know the whole system is just a trick to my self to make me work and that is the point which is achieved by the current Retroratchet system. But that color trick works and makes me feel that the safe days are my bank account.

    I suggest to make a rewarding trick for Retroratchet. Let's say introduce another measure (other than the safe days and the graph), like let's…

  17. This has been discussed in the forum here:
    http://forum.beeminder.com/t/feature-request-store-safety-buffer/227

    Briefly:
    What would be super cool is if i could "store" my safety buffer for a goal and only apply it if i need it. It's not being akratic because i had earned those days before.

  18. Currently there's a lot of screen space devoted to showing who I'm logged-in as on the dashboard ("Your Goals") page. I know who I am, so that's not useful information to me. I'm there to (1) enter data and (2) check for goals that need work. The (2) part is pretty well covered, but data entry is shoved down on one side. I'd rather have it up at the top like an "omni-bar" with auto-focus, so that I can update my most urgent goal without even clicking.

  19. I started a new goal yesterday and didn't realize that I needed to set it up from the partner apps in Fitbit until after I got it set up. Now I cannot see a way to change it.
