  1. Allow me to sort game players

    As a morbidly obese player, I want to find others in my game that are around the same weight so I can compare myself and to cheer them on.

    When I click on "Players" within a game, can you make it possible for us to sort based on different attributes? For me specifically, I want to view players who choose to make their starting weight visible.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    • allow the opportunity to pay someone else's bet

      like a motivational "gift"
      I would love to be able to do this for my sister who might not be able to commit the money since she is saving for her wedding.

      • Only publish % of goal or lbs lost for weigh ins

        For those who don't want to make their weight public, you essentially publish it when you post the lbs lost along with the percentage of goal. I suggest only posting one or the other for people who don't want their weight public. This is preventing me from weighing in publicly.

          • A widget to show progress on a blog

            I'd love to be able to put a widget on my wordpress blog to publically show the same progress bar thing that I get to see here.

            • Sort and add goal weight to Profile/Games view

              When you click on Your Profile/Games, the list of current DietBets is not user-friendly. It would be great if the view also showed the goal weight and was either in chronological order or would allow us to sort it. I'd like to know at a glance what goal weights I need to hit on what days.

                  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

                  • Body measurements to verify weight loss

                    Weigh-ins are great but as we all know, water, muscle and a lot of other factors contribute to weight fluctuations, I think there should be waist, chest, thigh and arm measurements incorporated also, especially for people on the cusp of the weigh out weight for example 3.98% or even to catch out people who may cheat :)

                          • I would like to be able to read what the host has to offer before joining a particular game. Does the host give a food plan, daily exercise?

                            Have each host post a description of what they will offer in terms of food and exercise plans when you join their game. If the host provides a diet or exercise plan, is it free or do you have to go to their website and subscribe/pay. Also, if exercise plan offered, is it You Tube type video, showing you the exercise or in written format. I want to be able to pick the DB that suits me best.

                            • Different % weight loss challenges

                              How about games where the organizer can choose a different % for weight loss vs. just the 4 or 10%? I'm at the point where 4% would leave me below goal weight, but I still have some to lose. Would love a challenge that accounts for those of us who have less to lose to reach goal!

                                  • alter the BMI calculations to include build

                                    For BMI calculations, you should take build into consideration. I am fairly tall and have a small body structure so falling slightly under a 18.5 BMI is not considered underweight. You should have further measures than just the "standard BMI" which many doctors disagree with. My BMI used to fall in the "underweight" category but many doctors said I was at a healthy weight for my structure. Some people have a naturally bigger bone structure and their healthy weight may put them in the "overweight" category although they are at a healthy weight.I think it is unfair to not consider…

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

                                    • Make the new weight loss chart private

                                      I very much like the new chart and the ability to see how far I have come without looking back trough old games. However, I would prefer to keep that information private. I understand that the weights are kept hidden, still the chart itself is sharing information with other players that I would rather not share.
                                      Please have an option to make the full chart set to private.

                                      • Profile weight graph: weight tooltip should have date and weight.

                                        Profile weight graph: weight tooltip should have date and weight.

                                        Also the weight graph can be a little more detailed in graphics, showing detailed weight. May be a tabular format also for all the dates and weights (also official/unofficial or winner/runner up)

                                        • Create a fitness based game

                                          A fitness based game would be great! For example you could pick a sport (swimming, running, cycling etc.), and a time (e.g. 30 minutes, 1 hour) then aim to increase your distance over the four weeks. The integration with certain apps allows you to audit the gains as well. It takes the focus away from weight loss and makes it more health based.
