Sharing is pretty huge, but can you say what exactly you mean by “a secure way”? Do you need a way to guarantee that only specific people see your graph, and that those people would have to have beeminder accounts themselves (to ensure you’re sharing with only those you intend)? If you just give the URL of your graph to those you want to share your goal with, that may be the best of all worlds, unless you’re super paranoid about the URL falling into the wrong hands. That’s our own philosophy, anyway. Others may have different privacy needs so we’re eager to hear more feedback on this.Robert Felty commented
One way to do this would be to add social network features to beeminder. I think this could be a good way to get more users,and bring back the kibitzing aspect of kibotzer - especially for people who aren't risking money, they could risk embarrasment, but only from their "friends"
Working on this! And we should emphasize that the specific problem is now solved (see x-min etc in graph settings) but it will be much nicer when you can just pan and zoom visually.
That’s a really good idea!
(The way we’re generating the graph images currently makes that easier said than done, so this might be a while, but we agree it’s worth doing.)
Sometimes those goal titles get truncated so in that case the mouseover text is useful. But you’re right, it should give some kind of additional useful info as well.
By “goal details” do you mean “Goal”, “Risking”, and “Status”?Robert Felty shared this idea ·
