Kickstarter Feedback

How can we improve Kickstarter games?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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!

      • Would like a date/timestamp on photos in the archive

        I can see my old weigh in photos and scale photos, but I don't see a date or time associated with them, would like to know when they were posted. Many are also upside down or sideways, would like to be able to rotate them.

          • MVP player should be changed

            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.

            • Allow participation in 4 DB4 games at once

              At the moment I can join 3 DB4 games at a time. I join a new one each week so I have a game closing each week which keeps me motivated! But I can only have three games in a go which means there is always one week a month with no game ending. For those of us at the start of our journey, keeping momentum with a weekly target is so motivating!

              Allow us to join 4 games or one game a week so we can have a constant goal at the start of our journeys.

              • Rate Your Host

                The ability to rate the host. This is my first game that was horrible. The host didn't live up to her word for mvps and rarely commented at all and I've been in several DB games, I know what hosting looks like. Why does she deserve a cut of the pot? She doesn't.

                • 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. :)

                    DB kicks in additional money if the winners get above a certain percentage (say 80%)

                      Hi Ellen! Thanks for your feedback. We’ve submitted it for review!

                    • 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.

                      • Make weigh in and weigh out days the same day of the week!

                        For my game, I was able to make my initial weigh in on a Wednesday, and I have been weighing myself on Wednesday, preparing myself for the final weigh out tomorrow - Wednesday. I checked tonight and the weigh out is Thurs and Fri! We should be able to weigh in and weigh out on the same day of the week.

                        • Games with smaller goals

                          After a while, it becomes unhealthy to keep losing 3% or 4% a month. I'm happy with my more than 8% lost but can't enter a new game because I'm not willing to lose so much weight in a month period. I really think there should be an option for one month or six month games where the monthly goal is 2 or 1% to keep it healthy for those of us who have been losing weight for a while.

                            Hi there,

                            Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate your ideas.

                            To clarify, in Transformer games (which are 6 months in length), the monthly goal can be more achievable.

                            Also, we are working on a maintenance game for when you are at your final goal weight.

                            Again, thanks for the suggestion. We will review your idea and wish you the best of luck with your goals!

                          • Measurements

                            Weight is too subjective when it comes to be healthy and fit. It's just ONE way to gauge how a person is doing. Measurements will give another option. If a person is lifting weights, they may gain some scale weight but lose inches which is even better.

                            • 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.

                                Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your ideas and the time you spent reaching out. We will review this idea for implementation. Please send us any other ideas.

                                Thanks!

                              • More billing address options. APO , AE or AP addresses.

                                For those of us stationed overseas, how about adding APO, AE or AP addresses to the billing section. This would allow our military, overseas, to participate easier. Thanks!

                                • Let Us Know Who's Hosting The Game

                                  Unless a game is being hosted by a celebrity, when you look at the list of the players, there is no way you can tell who has actually started the game. The last 3 Diet Bets that I was just in...the hosts didn't post or participate in their own games at all. As I am now searching for 3 new games to join, it would be helpful if the link for the host's profile (whether it's a celeb or not) be posted at the top near the title of their game. Or at least on the list of the players…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Money back each month of the Transformer

                                        During a transformer we should get the money at the end of each round we win instead of having to wait the whole 6 months.

                                          Thanks for your feedback, Michelle! We’ve submitted this idea for review.

                                        • Add a dehydration/rehydration clause for KS rollers.

                                          If a player just won a KS at 200 lbs. 2 days ago and starts a new one today they shouldn't be allowed to weigh more than 1 lb. from their previous weight a couple days ago. A player can easily dehydrate to lose up to 5 lbs in one day. Equally, they can drink a liter of water to gain 2.2 lbs before a weigh-in. This won't help with new participants but will help with KS rollers who play game after game.
