  1. Trail/Costless game

    I have several friends that are scared/unsure about using dietbet. I think it would be useful to the people that are in this same mindset to be able to join a trail game where they are allowed to participate in a no charge game. At the end of the game give the stats for the game and show what the payouts would have been if there would have been an entry free.

    • 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.

              • Dietbet for weight gain (bodybuilding)

                I just heard of this website and checked it out! I think dietbet should also have the same system for people gaining weight through muscle mass! There are so many people training to build muscles. Its just that much more incentive!

                • 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.

                    • 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

                        Thank you for your feedback!

                        We are working on a maintenance game for all DietBet players and we hope to have more information available soon!

                        Stay tuned to our website at http://www.dietbet.com for more information as it’s available!

                        Thanks for being a part of DietBet!

                      • 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 :)

                          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)

                                    • 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!

                                        since you already have runbet and stepbet, I think swimbet would be a great idea

                                        Apple health and fitbit track swim laps and you already have a relationship with them for syncing

                                          I would love to have an easier way to find my own comments and the responses to them. It makes no sense to ask a question and then have to take a long time to scroll through hundreds of updates and comments to try and find yours.
