  2. This I guess, would increase the commitment from the user if he knows that his money is at stake. Also it would feel like a real cash reward when he accomplishes a goal.

    If he doesn't complete a goal as per plan, or if he even "derailed from the road", a chunk of the stake money goes to Beeminder.

    Also, you guys could collect a flat fee of say 5 USD per goal, even if the user completes the entire goal. I would be happy to pay you that because your system allows me to be a better person. And…

  3. Disclaimer: Correct me if I’m wrong on any of the points.
    Currently when creating a break on the road Beeminder sets the steepness for the scheduled days to 0.
    Furthermore, it reduces the total amount of units until goal completion.

    Example:
    Let’s pretend you want to devote 10 hours per week to furthering your knowledge. So you set the road steepness to that value.
    Later you think that you want to take the weekends off and only learn during the workdays. So you create breaks for the weekends.
    Beeminder now practically substracted the two days of the weekend from the…

  4. I do a lot of binary goals. This requires me to define the conditions for success and failure in the fine print.

    The problem here is that I can change the fine print whenever I like. So I can make it easier for myself tomorrow, if I like.

    What I'd like is some sort of akrasia horizon for the small print. So that I am forced to be honest about what I'm changing.

  5. The only way to change the "rate units" is in the terrifyingly advanced setting after you have created the goal.

    Why not provide it as dropdown in the goal creation screen?

  6. Old-school ticking sound as it's used in some pomodoro apps would be sufficient.

    This would greatly mitigate the problem of forgetting to stop the timer!

  8. Right now, it shows <username>/<slug> and that's confusing when you've got multiple goals with similar slugs. Would also be nice if the widgets did the same thing (possibly trimmed to fit).

  9. With the focus only on read email, I find myself deleting and archiving my read email only and ignoring all the new email which lies unread. (As a result I have 300 plus new unread email whereas I would typically have 20-25. ) It would be useful to have the option to include unread mail as well in "Gmail Zero"

  10. I have a github minder, but I notice that it seems to count my (public+personal) contributions as well as my (org+private) contributions.

    It would be nice if we could configure options, at least for "public only" and "personal only", which would give us a set of four combinations. Alternatively, having public/private/both and personal/org/both as option sets could enable beeminding commits at work or even work-based OSS contributions.

  11. While it's nice to see how long I have left before I derail, the current version of the IOS app doesn't tell me how much I need to do to make it back onto the right side of the road. Those three numbers from the website version of the graph would be nice to know on the IOS app!

  12. It would be nice to have the graph reset the nominal amount of units reported to zero (or a given number) so you improve weekly performance. Say I'm only focusing on how I'm doing this week—checking Beeminder could tell me only how many times I've derailed this week, while maintaining the cumulative total for pricing. So if I had to pay $30 last week, on Sunday my counter resets to zero, but derailing this week will still charge me $90. It would be helpful mentally for focusing on performance and not feeling defeated by previous performance, and would be optional.

  13. Right now you can make a Do Less goal and "pessimistic presumptive" is turned on by default. If you do not report your data, Beeminder automatically puts in a pessimistic datapoint on the days you missed, which is usually around x2 more steeper than the road.

    My suggestion is that this rate be customizable so that it may be more pessimistic than just x2 the yellow brick road.

    For example, a person may have a "Go to bed early" goal, where he/she aims to sleep by 22:00 (10PM). You create a do-less goal where you report -5 if you slept…

  14. Allow automatically adding datapoints to more than one goal at a time (esp. if it also allows transformations).

    Examples: Work projects for which I want to track the hours worked as both "Hours Worked" and "Hours on Project P". That way I could enter the datapoint in "Hours on Project P" and it would automatically be entered into "Hours Worked"

    e.g. #2
    Have "Difference in weight" goal (like "chipmanaged's goal here: https://www.beeminder.com/chipmanaged/goals/difference) but that is populated by a transformation of the datapoint entered into the "weight" goal, so that you can enter the datapoint for yourself, but share the…

  15. I do my various goals at different times of the day. Very often in a particular sequence. Like (1) work out after I wake up, then (2) do my must do task, then (3) learn something new etc.. and end the day with (n) go to bed by 10pm. If I could see my goals in my sequence in beeminder, I could run my day from my beeminder goal "dashboard"

  16. I've set all my goals to only send reminders on eep days and I keep expecting new goals I create to behave to same but they don't.

    I would like to be able to change the default reminder schedule so that I don't have to set it up every time I create a goal.

    I stopped using beeminder the first time because of too many email reminders so I aggressively cut it down to eep days but inevitably I forget to change it on new goals, which adds noise to my inbox when I receive non-eep emails (which I confusedly…

  18. I want to be able to make a goal which automatically looks at the status of my other beeminders to automatically determine status of the metabeeminder goal.

    Allow the user to select from options such as sum of goal values, number of on-track beeminders, or number of derailments. Then allow the user to select which of their beeminder goals are included.

    As an example of a case I would use it for, I lift weights. I have a beeminder which I use to keep track of the total weight of my bench press, deadlift, and squat. I fill it in…

  19. Most applications I use accept European regional settings, but Beeminder does not. It would be nice to be able to use the comma as a decimal separator instead of the dot.

  20. Currently, even if the user doesn't revoke an application (I know, because it's my app and I didn't revoke me!) every so often (months probably) the OAuth2 access token stops working. Now, given the OAuth2 spec, access tokens are generally meant to have a finite lifespan, but that's why we've usually got a refresh token, which can then be used to generate new access tokens, but the OAuth2 for Beeminder doesn't seem to supply those...

    I'd really like apps to just keep working once a user authorises them, unless they explicitly remove them. Having tokens just die with no user…
