  2. I know the old data itself is still accessible but not the graph.

  3. I wrongly assumed that if I deleted a newly made goal (after changing my mind about how it was set up) that I could reuse that freebie in a new goal. The phrase that showed up in the delete message, "reuse the slug" misled me in this regard. I had no idea the url name was the "slug" and thought it was slang for the freebie count. I had some issues getting my gmailzero and fitbit accounts to work, and once they were fixed I deleted goals with the intention of recreating them in the proper places. Now I've discovered…

    We’re still tweaking how all this works but tentatively here’s the change we’re making, which solves this specific complaint and hopefully makes things simpler/clearer/fairer in general…

    OLD: You started with 7 freebees. When you created a goal you used a freebee but you got it back if you added a pledge to the goal. You, confusingly, did not get a freebee back if you deleted the goal (often exactly when people expected it, since deleted goals tend to be errors in setting things up). In practice no one could predict whether they had freebees remaining and it was a surprise each time whether Beeminder would tell you “you’re out of freebees so you have to create this goal with a pledge”.

    NEW: You start with 7 freebees. When you create a goal you use a freebee and it doesn’t matter if you add a pledge, it still counts…

  5. It should be an option at goal-creation time.

  7. For people who already use Foursquare, this would make Beeminder wholly subsume the functionality of GymPact. It could also support more general goals like "socialize more".

    Personally, I'd be more excited about Placeme or Geoloqi integration (or maybe Google Latitude or something could do this too) where you don't have to explicitly check in like on Foursquare.

  8. I can import my RescueTime 'Unproductive' time into Beeminder, but it's not actually useful because you treat all RescueTime goals as positive, and this one needs to be negative. Flip the sign!

    (If there were a button I could press to get 'Custom' access to an existing non-Custom goal, I could flip the sign myself, but I understand if you think this is too powerful a button to let me press.)

  9. (We, the cofounders, actually have an ugly version of this, so thought we'd offer to clean it up and make it available if there's demand for it.)

  10. It's very similar to GitHub and the same options would be nice - track commits or issues closed per week, across all repositories or a specific one.

  11. Zeno poling is great, but it would be cooler if the beeminder app also had a zeno notification system on emergency days.

    The Android app does this now (you can adjust the specific zeno start time in the settings, too). We don’t have a timeline on supporting it on iPhone yet.

    UPDATE: Android and iOS now both do zeno polling! iOS is maybe ahead of Android now in that it actually honors the settings on the website and you can update reminder (and deadline!) settings in the app. One known bug: don’t try to change your deadline on an emergency day.

  12. It feels cluttered and information overloady to have all my goals, including the ones I'm not tracking anymore, all on one page. Can we shunt off the inactive ones to an archive or vault so I don't have to look at my shameful past anymore?

  14. There is a red line and a grey line and it is not clear what they denote.

  15. -- i.e., if I want someone to be able to see my slope and whether I'm still on the road, but not my actual weight or whatever other number it is.

  17. If I accomplish a goal and thereby fulfill my contract, I can set a new, similar goal for free. Why not allow me to reset the same completed goal for free, and keep my history?

  18. I'm tracking running with beeminder (to make sure I get in 1200 miles in a year), and it would be awesome if I could just connect up RunKeeper or DailyMile, like you can connect up the Withings account now. RunKeeper specifically has a pretty highly publicised API at http://developer.runkeeper.com/healthgraph, and DailyMile has one too with docs at http://www.dailymile.com/api

  19. When I create a goal, I'd like to be able to specify the details of what counts and what doesn't. The standard Beeminder Contract includes a "fine print" section, but there is nowhere to actually specify that fine print.

    When creating the goal, I know what I want the fine print to be. Three months from now, when I will be tempted to weasel, it would be good to have a place which reminds me the rules I set for myself

  20. Specify a Twitter handle (which need not be one you own) and optionally a hashtag. Every time a tweet is tweeted from the given Twitter handle with the given hashtag, add 1 to your Beeminder graph (with the tweet text as the Beeminder comment).

    Since a lot of services have auto-tweet functionality, you can then trivially beemind any of them.
