  2. make it possible to change the units of an existing goal

    When creating a goal, I entered a unit. Now I want to use the "rescale" feature, and I'd like to also change the unit. I could not find such an option anywhere in the settings. (Or is the Y-axis label - which can be changed - the only place this is really used?)

  3. Don't reset the total when resetting cumulative goals

    Recently I had to reset my "meditation" goal, because I drove off the road. My yearly goal was to do 12 minutes every day, which means at the beginning of the year it was easy to set at 4380 as the goal for 2013-01-01. Since I had to reset the goal though, I had to reset it based on a weekly amount instead of my actual goal amount, since setting the total as 4380 would mean I'm actually overshooting by 100+ minutes.

  4. Create an online user guide

    Sorry, but couldn't find the instructions I needed anywhere. Had to discover by trial and error. The Overview and articles were not enough. Thanks for considering.

  6. Allow users to specify/adjust road width

    I'm noticing that, after I derail, my road width gets larger than I would like it to be. For example, I had a graph with a 120pt road width (+60 and -60). I got into the wrong lane and then derailed pretty hard the next day. Between my wrong lane value on the one day and the value that caused me to derail on the next day, my datapoint was +179 from my centre line. When I rerailed my goal, the road width became 358 (+ and - 179 from the centre). This means I can now screw up, DAILY,…

  7. option to limit entering certain values for a goal - no stacking

    Some goals should not be allowed to enter more than 1 point/day (i.e. the graph can't increase by more than a value of 1 per day). Otherwise, I can "stack" a lot of points in one day to get really ahead of the yellow brick road, and then slack off for many days. I would be missing out on creating a daily habit by just "cramming" at the end. I've had to amend many of my goals to add a "no stacking" clause for this reason but it would be nice if that type of goal was supported out of…

  8. More options on starting goal. Not only weekly rate!

    When you start a new goal you should get the option to set your goal end date and total goal amount. It is possible to do this, but it should be extremly easy to do.

  9. Have an option to round the bare min numbers

    In some goals each unit is indivisible, and doesn't make sense for the bare min numbers to display a floating point number. It would be more intuitive for them to show a round number.

  10. Allow for write-protected comments or other arbitrary data

    1)Having write-protected comments would allow for a more robust hackery, such as an improved Must-Do list.

    2)Being allowed to attach arbitrary data to a goal would allow for even more interesting hackery.

  11. Add intermittent rewards

    Allow me to give you, say, $100 which you hold in escrow. Every time I enter a good "green" data point in Beeminder, there's a X% chance that I'll get a $Y reward from my escrow account back into my bank account. (Where X and Y should be some combination of "user selected" and "random".)

    Thus, intermittent reinforcement is achieved.

  12. Allow immediate archiving/deleting if you have a week of safety buffer

    If I'm deleting a goal and I have a week of safety buffer, I should be able to delete it immediately. I wouldn't have to enter anything for the next week anyway without derailing, so it's just taking up space and irritating me without forcing me to do anything for another week.

  13. Daily Mail/Notification Resumé of Goals

    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.

  14. Notify me when support unfreezes a goal or recalculates the graph

    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…

  15. Default the Add credit card Expiration month to 1

    Putative bug: The Expiration month on the add payment form defaults to the current month.

    Expected behaviour: The month should default to 1, as is the case with 99.31416% of other sites' forms. It is odd to have to consider what the current month is and so which direction to arrow up or down to, especially since the current month is not visibly related to likely expiration month.

    On my iPhone, whether in the goal listing view or when viewing any one goal, every graph appears identically as it did from the moment of goal creation over two weeks ago. =-(

  18. don't extrapolate the turquoise swath into the future

    A few days might be OK, but definitely not two weeks. It can be silly, especially when the polynomial is high-order: see e.g. https://www.beeminder.com/army1987/goals/weight -- I don't think I'm gonna weigh 92 kilos by the 28th, not even taking the Christmas holidays into account...

  19. Bug: Time left box blank on initial page render

    When I view a goal on the webapp the green/blue/(maybe other colours if I'm bad?) "time left" box is just a solid field devoid of text, until I add data, at which point it populates with the text of the countdown, briefly showing the pre-addition-of-data-time and then immediately updating to the post-addition time.

    I presume this is a bug. The expected behaviour would be to show the countdown on initial page render even before any action is taken on the page.

  20. Make the colors represent the number of days until derailment, not distance from center of road.

    I just started a goal with the week of flatness and my graph is blue, even though I'm nine days away from derailing! Also, I went on vacation a few months ago and put a few of my goals to zero while I was gone, and the colors for one goal told me I was going to derail even though I had a week and a half to derailment!

    I think the "yellow brick road" analogy is okay, but it's just an analogy and adds an extra layer of interpretation in this and other cases (like the 0 safe day…
