Cheer when I reach my goal
Rather than see a red question/reminder (You drove off the road...) the day after successfully reaching a goal how about some praise and an offer to continue?

The pop-up should be green now; is that better? :)
Oh yes, and there's a gray happy-face watermark on the graph.
But yes, we definitely agree there's more to be done here. Great point about the "useless but strangely motivating" stuff that other sites do. We're slightly allergic to that sort of thing but there's a lot more we could do that wouldn't be too nauseating. We'll get there!
Yeah, there's definitely more to be done here. I get congratulatory emails, badges, and a bunch of other useless, but strangely motivating, junk from some of the other motivational sites I use. I'm amazed at what a difference it makes.
