Make RescueTime 'Unproductive' category useful
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.)

This was a bug in the goal creation, where if you had less than two days of data in the past week we failed to check whether it should be a do more or a do less goal. (we look at Rescuetime's categorization of the activity as productive vs unproductive).
This should be fixed for real as of https://twitter.com/beemuvi/status/504077042313220096
For some reason this works for me now.
When I try to create the goal it defaults to 'Goal: Increase unproductive time'. I don't know how to change it.
Why would I want to do that anyway :'(

Any updates? This is still broken for me...

I can confirm that this is broke.
I'm having this problem as well; Beeminder calls the created goal "increase unproductive time." Do you recall the method you used to solve it?
Glenn Willen commented
It looks like either this changed, or I just hit a bug when I created this goal. I recreated it, and now it's fine.
