  1. 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.

      • not auto-enroll people into a game.

        I recently received an email telling me that I was auto-enrolled into a game. I declined the invitation, and was not billed. If some people like being auto-enrolled, then I recommend having an option in our profile that allows us to indicate if we want to be auto-enrolled in games or not.

        • Clock - Current USA day/ time

          You should have time label. Or something that shows the current day and time in USA. This will be great for those living in different time zones to keep track!

          • Account sections should be protected with SSL

            Players have real money invested in the game, but the Account sections of the game are not protected with SSL, which means they are much more vulnerable to hackers. If a player has hundreds of dollars in the account, they could be transferred to a hacker's PayPal account and withdrawn before they are noticed missing.

            • Ability to start a new KS as current one is finalizing

              I like to start 3 KS' at the same time to cut down on multiple weigh ins. I understand there is a limit of 3, but why can't we start a new trio of KS' while the current ones are finalizing? I can then use my finalizing KS weigh-outs for the weigh-ins of the next trio of KS'. What I find will tend to happen is I'll win my set fo KS' at 200 but by the time I can start my next trio I've gained a pound or 2 because I feel I have no skin in the game…

              • Make 2-month or 3-month games

                Make a 2-month or a 3-month game. Right now, you only have the options of 1-month or 6-month games.

                • Game options

                  Allow organizers of games to have more options than 4% in four weeks or the longer one 10% in six months. A 90 day challenge is always great to feel doable, long enough but not too long. Also I would like the option to choose the percentage of weigh loss per game. For example in my four week game, I would have like to offer 5-6% goal instead of 4% as most will meet that weigh loss goal. End up getting back what they paid to enter the challenge. Not very challenging or motivating.

                  • Would like to be able to post unofficial weights when not in a game.

                    Would like to be able to continue to post an unofficial weight when not in a current game. I haven't played a game since this spring, doing another in December. In the meantime, my player profile, graph, is all off. Would like to be able to update the amounts before my next game starts, just like a new person joining the site could put in an estimated weight etc on some sites.

                    • Posting comment to multiple games

                      When a player is active in more than one DB10/DB4 and are posting a comment to the board, would be nice to have the option to choose whether to post the same comment on the other active games.

                      • Make graphs more awesome.

                        Get better charts...both on website and mobile. Have option to turn on projections and to do overlays with friends/other competitors.

                            • Raise the weight loss limits.

                              There are those of us who are just starting and are starting at a larger weight than many of the diet betters. It is a disadvantage for people who are heavier to stick within certain limits. I understand that there are those that go overboard, but please take into account what can be considered healthy across such a broad weight range.

                              • Connect dietbet with Fitocracy

                                It's nice to see what others are doing on dietbet, with the numerous apps connected. But I'm suggesting that Fitocracy be included next, it's a huge fitness tracking site that would probably attract a lot of new dietbet users who enjoy Fitocracy for the workouts, but want to connect with another site for diet-goal reaching.

                                  • More options besides Dietbet4 and Dietbet10

                                    More Dietbet options - lose smaller amounts over a number of months, say 1-2% per month over 3-6 months for people who've been losing for a while and whose weight loss has slowed.

                                      For those of us gaining muscle you should be able to win on measurements too!

                                      • 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.

                                          Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are actually looking into something like this right now and hopefully will be able to implement this shortly. Thanks!

                                          Have the option to keep the amount of pounds lost/gained private. Just by doing some math you can still find out how much someone weighs by knowing how much they lost during a game (if they win).
