Do you mean to say that you "pay in" as it were and only get the money back if you achieve the goal, or is it that you pay in you achieve your goal.
If the latter, I don't see as much of a reason to achieve a goal in that case.
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.Drew Summitt commented
For me personally, a secured "This is a url to my progress concerning BLAH keep me accountable" would be enough. I would trust people not to go around sharing the URL on my odometer or study habits (for whatever reason) but I don't feel comfortable sharing that same data that generate on Facebook which is the default way of sharing things. Facebook however is *too* public. I'd like the sharing of graphs to be to targeted trusted individuals.
“Started” may be an exaggeration but this no longer seems hard and is bubbling to the top of the list of priorities…
Rough sketch of the plan: Put the countdown to next derailment next to or in place of the “bob is minding” heading, which avoids the problem of someone accidentally burying an eep goal. And then kill frontburner/backburnering. And then add tags and sorting by whatever you like — tag, time-to-derailment, pledge, goalname. For tags you could specify in the url, like bmndr.com/bob/tag/foo (same as the blog).
