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".

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

  1. Maintainer DietBet

    Create a DietBet "Maintainer" concept. Once someone has reached his weight goal, the program will help to keep it month after month within a range of 1% change for example. I would personally keep an active account for that on DietBet. Thanks

    • maintain

      I think you're working on this already but a maintainer sort of challenge where you need to be within 1% of your starting weight at the end of the challenge or something to help those who have got to their goal weight and need support to stay there

        • No Mo Yo-Yo. I can keep my weight loss OFF for 6 months

          A new game for those of us who have reached a goal to stop the yoyo. I'd like to bet that I can keep the weight off for 6 months!

            • Let Maintainers reduce their goal

              In Maintainer Bet, allow us to reduce our maximum goal if we lose weight (within the 10%) which we are committed to keeping off.

                You asked – we answered! Now, you can lower your target weight to reflect your new lower goal.

                Just e-mail support@dietbet.com to let us know that you want a weight reset, and we’ll update your new target to be the weight you enter at the end of this round, as long as it’s lower than your initial weigh-in.

              • Post photos in reply to a message

                We need to be able to post photos in reply to a message. Currently when our host puts on a challenge, we have to reply in the string, and then post a photo as a separate activity.

                • make photo's bigger

                  Maybe, make the photo's a little bigger so we can see them on our devices! Sometimes, I think of posting a photo and I don't because I realize that it will be so tiny that maybe others cannot see it. I cannot see them most of the time or figure out what they are (the photo's).

                  • Countdown to end of weight-in-time

                    It would be nice to have an additional display of the time remaining until end of the bet / the end of time to weight in like "Time left: 10 days, 12 hours, 5 minutes". I have to admit I am always unsure during end of weight-in-time trying to figure out when I have to have weighted in my time zone in as I live in Europe ;-)

                    • Maintain Bet

                      Add new game "I bet I can maintain my weight" after we hit our goal weight. Maintaining can be just as hard.

                                We have an update! We are currently running a StepBet Beta game that works with FitBit to encourage players to get stepping. We have thus far run two test games and hope to do another in October.

                                Please let us know if you have any questions.

                              • Keep the Weight Off

                                How about a keep the weight off 4-6 month bet. Once the weight is off, learning how to keep it off is challenging. I would sign up for a keep the weight off bet just to keep myself accountable. I would prefer a longer time frame, based largely on the 6 month transformer model with weekly weigh-ins and monthly pots. Such a game might be especially helpful in the fall through the holidays.

                                  Have you considered a "maintain your weight" bet forum? Once we reach our goal - it would be nice to continue betting in a forum to maintain it. Just a thought.

                                        I'd like a bet to stay at a certain weight for 3-6 months.

                                          Start a "Maintain" group to maintain your weight, maybe +/- 1 lbs, that has to be maintained over 28 days. Have to have participated in a Kickstarter group initially to join.
