Free the Beeminder code!
There are social  and practical  reasons to write free software. For Beeminder, being something primarily used over the internet, the AGPL would probably be appropriate .

Gamify: Add Badges or Alerts
I love the RescueTime-Beeminder alliance - it's magic. I set RescueTime to send Alerts when I've worked 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 hours of Very Productive Time - so when I get tired, I feel good about what I did!
Adding some sort of rewarding Badge or Alert popup/text/email would make Beeminder even more addictive than it currently is. Seeing the graphs is a carrot; losing money is a stick. More carrots is always nice!7 votes
create a method to "pause" goal tracking for when I know I won't have access to BM. My GF's family is in the boonies!
Sometimes I travel or vacation without access to beeminder BUT I still keep up with my goals and habit building. It would be nice to be able to "pause" my goals for a set period and then enter the data when I get back. Then if I kept up with my goal while incommunicado, no harm, and if I fell off the wagon the sting kicks in.7 votes
Let us set up a standard settings for new goals
There are many of the settings that I always change and almost always to the same thing for all my goals (email schedule, panic threshold, max safe days, graph settings). It would be great if we could set up standard goal settings, and these would always be used for new goals.7 votes
Cancelling NEEDS to be easier...
I literally cannot find a way to cancel my account. I thought I was in some sort of dummy run, where money doesn't change hands, but doesn't seem to be the case. Money IS being taken out, and I wasn't emailed to that fact, only a casual check of my bank account revealed this. The site is just too damned confusing, perhaps it was made semi-clear at one stage, who knows.7 votes

Lack of UI a feature: proceed carefully and implement immutable statistics
I think there is some movement on this board to give users more control over deleting or editing goals, but I wanted to point out that your current lack of an interface for these things is actually a bit of a feature. It makes you think twice about what goals you create (commit to). For instance, I have a dud email goal hanging around, I set it to end in a week and I hope it goes away, but as an end-user I don't know if it will and it makes me more careful about creating goals I don't want or failing at goals that will stare at me. So, if/when you implement a more robust interface for creating, deleting, and modifying goals, please keep in mind the merit of this stickiness in both increasing my commitment and enhancing the filter with which I judge my priorities. I would recommend that with such an interface, also keep immutable account statistics--number of goals created uncommitted, the number of goals failed, etc. If not completely immutable, make it all or nothing, "Are you sure you want to delete ALL of your history? Success history will be lost too!" This long-term accountability will help as much as the short-term accountability of specific goals.
Admittedly, this idea is not clear cut or well refined. Please vote me up if you agree on the general notion, and argue the details in the comments.

We’re still thinking hard about this. Thanks so much for the insight here — it definitely cast this issue in a new light for us.
Here’s the link to the feedback page about deleting goals: http://beeminder.uservoice.com/forums/3011-general/suggestions/2353108-let-us-delete-goals
"Check off" multiple goals at once
For goals of the form "do X at least N times per week", it would be helpful to check off each day which we did; instead of having 3 emails for 3 goals, we could have one "checklist" email where we could reply A, C to indicate that goals A and C should be incremented, but not B.6 votes
Support RescueTime subcategories
My work and goal are both tracked under the same RescueTime category (Design & Composition). I want to increase my writing time, not track my work (I get my work done). The only way to get the data I need is via the subcategory :(6 votes
Display pledge in local currency.
This may be of use for a small percentage of users but seeing the pledged amount in the local currency it would be great for international users. Of course, one can make the conversion by head, but my intuition is that psychologically is easier just to see the right amount. And it's great for weaker currencies than the US Dollar, seeing 5 USD is not the same as seeing 25 ARS!
Again, this is only relevant for international users, so I don't think it's high priority.6 votes
Global / repeating off days
Let us set an account setting that will automatically have goals be off on certain days. I don't like having to manually enter weekends off for all my goals every week.6 votes

you're asking for too much trust: Why would beeminder need to write anything from my github account?6 votes
Allow for the plotting of numerical metadata
Some goals, like strength-training, can have multiple aspects. One aspect is how often you do the exercise itself (e.g. am I going to the gym twice a week?) while other things include the repetitions you do and the amount of weight you use.
It would be nice if beeminder could plot this metadata and associate it with the given goal. So I could see a graph of my weight lifted over time, but only beemind my actual gym visits
Based on the thread "reminder (or goal) to record weight" in Akratics Anonymous.6 votes
Allow scheduled breaks to be deleted.
The only way I can figure out to effectively delete a scheduled break is to change the break rate to match your goal rate. There should be a way to simply delete scheduled breaks.6 votesplanned · Admindreeves (Cofounder, Beeminder) responded
We have a plan for this problem, namely replacing the road dial with something much better! http://expost.padm.us/dial
Allow shared/team goals, where multiple people can enter data
My wife and I have some household goals that we both contribute to. It would be great if we could both enter data for the goal, and probably both be on the hook for the pledge.
As a workaround, today I am hosting our shared goals and entering data on her behalf.6 votes
Allow retrotracheting "do less" goals by value rather than days.
I'd like to be able to trim the buffer on my do less goal by how much buffer I have rather than how much time till I derail. This is both because the "how much time to derail" measure is kinda meaningless for them and because it lacks the fine grained control I need.6 votes
Make mobile widget name the goal name, not the URL
I can change the goal name to be meaningful to me, but can't change the URL. For instance, I started my exercise regiment using an elliptical, so set the URL as /elliptical. I have since branched out into other forms of exercise, so have changed the name to "cardio", but my Beeminder Widget still says elliptical and there's no way to change it (as far as I can see).6 votes
Enter mass break for all goals at one go
If I am going on a holiday, I have to schedule breaks individually in all my beeminder goals. I would like the ability to "mass add" breaks in all my goals by specifying a from date & to date for all my goals in one place.6 votes
