  1. 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

    • 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!

      • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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 ;-)

                • allow users to create customized quick updates for the activities they repeat, such as 'just spent an hour at zumba"

                  Allow users to create some number (say 5) of customized quick updates that will be available from the pulldown when they log in. We all do different activities, and we can have fun with this as in, "just spent an hour doing housework while dancing to 80s music".

                    • Body fat % version

                      Weight is important, sure, but body fat % is a better indicator of health. You should make a game for those who wish to gain muscle and/or lose body fat (usually resulting in weight gain). Your site (smartly I guess) caters to those with significant amounts of weight to lose. What about those with smaller goals?

                        Thank you for your suggestion. We will review your ideas in regards to the body fat %.

                        For players with smaller goals, they may be inclined to play our Kickstarter game. We will also be releasing a maintenance game shortly.

                      • I think it would be a good idea to partner with companies to offer gift cards for the payout.

                        Dietbet could offer gift cards as a payout option. For example, rather than a payout to Paypal, it would be nice to buy an Amazon gift card. I'm not sure how it would all work, but maybe some companies would be willing to offer a discounted gift card. For example, pay $90 for a $100 gift card at Amazon (or other retailers).

                        • Encourage celebration without food

                          Advice from dietbet towards end of game was to hold off pigging out till final weigh in... Better advice would be to celebrate without food. We have to change our attitudes about rewarding ourselves with food.
                          Celebrate by taking body measurements, buying a new shirt, doing something fun!

                          • Create a "Submit Weigh in Later" Button to Click Out of Official Weigh in Reminders

                            I find it irritating that I am unable to click past the official weigh in reminders until I have weighed in. I cannot submit my initial or final weigh in until I am at home and at my scale and sometimes I want to view the comments or join in on the discussion, but I am unable to click past the reminder. I understand that this reminder is necessary, but a small "Submit Weigh In Later" button would be great!

                            • Let us know that "you must lose x lbs, but no more than x lbs" on our homepage so we know more clearly what is too much.

                              For those who may lose weight more quickly and don't clearly understand the threshold. :)

                                • How about making players searchable by Location, gender, age, or weight/goal weight?

                                  This is a good idea because in large games it is difficult to find friends to play with similar to you to support and encourage and whom can encourage friendly competition with you. I am more encouraged when I can find women close to my age or starting weight/goal weight during a game. It would also be nice to find people close to my location. These would all be option on the profile page, like how it is optional to display your weight on a game page.

                                    We’re planning to implement something like this soon to make it easier to connect with similar players.

                                    I'd LOVE to see a section in your profile of the gifts you've received along the way! It's SO awesome to get them, it would be nice to be able to look at them again from time to time withot having to roll back through your activity! They're certainly a pick-me-up on a bad day for me! :)

                                      Please consider games that are 3% of body weight and less. I'm close to goal, and now have less than 10 lbs to lose. At this point, 4% isn't always safe to do it 28 days.

                                          Thanks for your feedback, Barb! We have submitted this idea for review.

                                        • Allow us to roll over friend invites in a previous game to other games.

                                          As a player of the game, I like to invite many people to make MVP of the game. In one game, I invited over 4,000 people. It is very time consuming to invite these people. I would like an option to roll over the people I invited into another game. I think it would be a great idea to be able click on something so that we can invite the same people we invited from another game we participated in.
