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 the box.

Smart. One answer to this is to use the "automatically trim safety buffer" checkbox, currently a premium feature. Will keep thinking about this.
One consideration is that we always want Beeminder to be foremost a Quantified Self tool. So if you actually did more than 1 point (or whatever) on that day then the graph should absolutely reflect it. It should be a meaningful graph of real-world data, in other words. I really hate it when people have fine print that conflicts with that. (The worst is fine print that says they can add a "1" under certain exceptional circumstances where a "1" did not in fact happen.)
