    • Make the games searchable by start date!

      If I have a specific date in mind I want to start a challenge (i.e. New Year's Day, birthdate, first Monday of the month, etc.) it would be great to be able to search for an existing game by the starting dates instead of sorting through "future games". That way I can quickly know if I need to start a new one myself!

      • Running total of number of winners as they're verified

        It would add a little excitement at the end of the game if we could see a running total of the number of winners as they're verified during the last 48 hours (the weigh out period). i.e.

        • Select the amount to payout

          It would be nice to select the amount to be paid out. I'd like to just pay out the original bet amount but keep the extra in my DietBet account. :)

          • Make new games varying the percentage lost, instead of just 4%

            As I am close to my weight loss goal, I do not want to jump in and lose 4% in a month, or even a full 10% in 6 months. I would love a game where I could lose 2% a month, which is doable for me at this point. Some of us may only have 10% (or less) left to lose and it would be nice to have a game that we can do, that takes the weight loss a little slower.

            • Dietbet percentage

              I suggest DB takes it's percentage up front before $$ go into the "pot" so the pot reflects a more accurate number for winnings.

              • Pledges

                I sometimes want to join a game, but there is only one member or just a few. I don't want to join until there are more. If others are thinking like me, then we will never join, though we would have if we had known the others were interested.

                Now I'm running my own DietBet with a high bet price. I know many people would be interested in joining, but only if others were committed to joining too. I wish people could click something that says, "I pledge to join this DietBet if the number of pledges gets up to…

                • Add a search capablity to find comments/posts made in a game

                  I find many times I want to go back to a recipe someone posted or an answer to a question and there is no easy way to find it short of manually searching through potentially weeks of comments which on an active board is next to impossible. A search capability would be so nice!

                  • Offer a Couples DietBet Game

                    This would be a pair's only dietbet. Each person weighs in and has their own amount to lose but both people in the couple (significant other's, friends, whatever) have to reach his/her goal in order for them to win as a team.
                    This would be more motivating for each person because no one wants to be responsible for making the team lose.

                    • Display a map so players can see where other players are from (regionally or state based)

                      Display a map on the web-site and within the mobile app where players can tag their city or state, so we can see where other players in our game are, and connect to other folks in the same area more easy.

                      • Running total on how many miles our group is exercising!

                        I love reading how everyone is working so hard. I *WISH* DB had a running total on how many miles our group is walking, running, swimming, hiking, biking, lifting, etc, etc, (like they do for 'lbs lost'). THAT would be an incredible number to see rising minute by minute!!!!

                        • Have a calendar view of games you are enrolled in and upcoming games

                          This way you could see the start and end date of all the games you are enrolled in (therefore making it easier to link challenges together) and also have the ability to click on certain days and see if there are any games scheduled to start that day.

                          • Invite friends from one bet to the next

                            You should really add functionality that allows me to invite people who I classified as friends on a current bet to join the next. I don't know their email addresses, so can't use that functionality. Seems you're missing out on possible extra revenue.

                                MVP should not be the person who invites the most people. it should be the person who participates in the challenge the most interactivly IE person who supports the others the most by commuting on their post liking others post ect.

                                  • Enable mini-challenges

                                    I'm new to this so it may already be a feature, but I think it'd be awesome to have mini-challenges within the game. These probably would not be able to be verified, but just little things that the original game creator could add. Things like "do 3-5 hours of low-level cardio this week." It may have to be an "on your honor" type thing, but maybe have a button for everyone to press that says they completed that week's mini-challenge

                                    • I'd like to have an option to track measurements too.

                                      I'd like there to be an option to track measurements and have it available as a graph over time like weight and BMI. Inches lost is a great tool for measuring success and it's great to look back on to see just how far you've come.

                                        Hi There,

                                        We are reviewing your suggestion to add measurements and our Development Team will carefully consider it for future updates to the game. While we can’t guarantee it will be implemented, we can assure that your suggestion will be explored to see if it is possible to include in the game.

                                        Thanks for playing and for providing your valuable feedback!

                                        Regards,

                                        The DietBet Team

                                      • make the dietbet net winnings TRULY be the real total of all winnings.

                                        It seems that if you pay a bet via credit card and win that bet, then it is posted in your profile that you "won" the total payout. That isn't correct- it should be the difference! (If you pay your bet from previous accumulated credits, then THAT is correctly added in your profile, but not in the first scenario mentioned about). I like to see the true amounts players, including myself, shown in our profiles. Thanks.

                                          Thanks for the feedback, Doris. We’ve submitted this idea for review.

                                        • Allow me to delete unofficial weigh-ins. Or make my graph (even without the numbers) visible to only me.
