  1. When editing the settings for my goal, if I switch between "Basic" "Reminder" and "Advanced" on Chrome v14.0 , I lose the information I had submitted in the other tabs. Thus, I'm forced to click submit before switching to another tab.

    My intuition tells me that I should be able to fill out all three tabs and hit submit on any of the three to see changes. I'm not sure that's happening :)

  4. Pros:
    1. awesome crispness on Retina displays (currently it’s meh)
    2. can be rendered much faster (less server load + better redraw times)

    Cons: IE 8 doesn’t support SVG. A possible workaround is using something like Raphaël (a JS library for cross-browser vector graphics), but even a checkbox in the settings "I swear I’m never going to use IE 8, now please give me my SVG already!" would be cool.

  6. I would love it if you could track words written and/or edited in Google Drive, as you can Draft.

  7. 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?

  8. The Beeminder Android app is very well done, and I work almost exclusively with the phone app rather than the website for data entry. Once enhancement could be that along with reminder options to enter data via email or text message, is to include an option where the app itself triggers the reminder, including a message in the notification bar. Clicking the notification reminder would like to the Beeminder app (or better yet, the specific goal) for data entry.

  9. The "Do more" goal automatically sums, and is the default goal type. This is right for most of my goals, but for one of them, I selected that and started entering data.

    I'd like to change it to not sum, but I don't see where I can do that. Is there a way? And if not, can there be a way?

  10. This feature would allow a user to create a goal that automatically and gradually increases from a lower initial rate to a higher target rate. Inputs would be the initial rate, the final rate, and a time scale. The result would be a non-linear road that hits the target rate at the specified time. Preferably the schedule for increase (e.g., constant, decreasing, increasing, etc.) would be set automagically.

    For instance, let's say I'd like to work my way up to flossing once a day, but right now I'd be happy with once a week. I'm pretty sure I'll fail if…

  11. I'd like TimeTag to text me when I'm out and about, not just on the web. That would allow me to use it with iOS or even people who still have dumbphones. I'm used to answering texts. I'm not sure of the barriers though.

  12. Make it easy to flexibly define the meaning of data from integrations - for example, the duolingo integration allows you to create a beeminder goal for "total number of points" but it would be nice to easily say "days in which any points were earned"

  13. There currently only appears to be a total net calories through FitBit. I track my food intake there, but not activity since my Fitbit flex broke. Or at least have some calorie-counting site that can be integrated.

  14. I don't know how you keep track of Beeminder blog posts, but an easy way to keep track of blogging and other publishing-type tasks (Twitter, Youtube, ...) would be to check an RSS/Atom feed and then count the posts / words / whatever.

  16. For a lot of fitness related goals there are multiple dimensions. Running 5k is one thing, but running it at 9 minute miles is very different from 8 minute miles. In weight lifting, the data are naturally of the form (weight, reps, sets), and an improvement in any dimension represents real growth. Users should be able to report multi-dimensional data and specify a function that maps their data space into one dimension for graphing and tracking purposes.

  17. Currently users self-report on beeminder goals. That's good, but we can lie, we can round things up/down, and we can take samples at convenient times. If there's money at stake, and that money is significant to the user, then some users will simply misreport rather than fail a goal.

    However, if you have a buddy reporting a goal, you can't as easily weasel out of it.

    This is a suggestion to allow nominate (on a per-goal basis) another user or users as "buddies" who can also enter data for that particular graph.

  18. I get the whole anti-akrasia thing where you pay when you fail. You're incentivizing your future self to toe the line (stay on the road).

    But it takes a certain kind of nerd to appreciate the value in that. Normal people might prefer it the other way around: I still put in my credit card up front but you only charge it if I actually reach my goal.

    It's like a satisfaction guarantee: Beeminder will get you to the end of your Yellow Brick Road or your money back!

  19. I don't want reminders every day or on particular days of the week, but I definitely do want a reminder if it's the emergency day or day before. I can't do that with the current email settings.

  20. There are social [1] and practical [2] reasons to write free software. For Beeminder, being something primarily used over the internet, the AGPL would probably be appropriate [3].
