    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.

    I'd define "sharing" to mean allowing me to start private auctions on the contracts I set up. I'd like my friends to be able to bid for the contracts I'm creating and to have the opportunity to "win" money from the highest bidder if I complete the goal. This is similar to what you explained was the origin of Beeminder in your QS talk a while back.

    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.)

    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.

    This is a great idea. I think using Google's finance graphs as a reference for what this could look like would be nice: http://www.google.com/finance?q=ibm

    Hmm... I see what you're saying...
    Well to use another interface as a comparison... Something that I like about Gmail contacts dynamic editing is that each of your changes is automatically recorded when you go into edit mode. As the changes are saved, you have a notification as the top that tells you how many changes were saved and allows you to undo the changes if you wish.

    So the changes necessary: remove submit buttons altogether, use dynamic saving (commit on javascript click away), create undo capabilities, and add unobtrusive notifications when changes are committed.
