  1. Make tokens available in other quantities

    I'm not ready to commit to 20 tokens at this point in the competition. Given that it has such a long run, I want to see how I do without it just yet. But if I decide to "get in the game" for the prizes and whatnot later, then I only have the option to buy 20 at a time. Given that the prize drawings are weekly, and I can only use the tokens in this particular game, it'd be nice to be able to chip in for just 10 tokens in January or whenever.

    • Let's Start a DB6 Game!

      DB4's are great for big, quick losses. DB10's are great for slower, longer losses. It's time for something in the middle!

      A DB6 game would be 3 months long and have an even 2%, 2%, 2% loss goal. The pot would be split like it is in the DB10 and monthly weigh-ins too.

      I regularly see people say that either a 4% loss in a month is too fast or 10% in 6 months is too much. This would be a great middle-ground!

      • Require DietBet10 participants to pay at least HALF the total amount up front.

        By the fifth round, there could technically be NO pot at all, if only the winners are left in the game. People drop out as they become discouraged, sometimes, rather than dig in and keep trying. Not only would the "half-the-amount" commitment encourage people to continue trying, and be more likely to succeed, it would ALSO more properly reward those who do.

        • Official time

          It would be wonderful to have a kind of "official clock" somewhere on the website of Dietbet. I'm living on a totally different time zone, and sometimes its annoying to check out whether the new day has begun on Dietbet or not. Official time would make my dietbetting easier.

          • Round winnings should be credited to your account immediately so you can use them on other games.

            If you win a round, that round's winnings should come back at that point. 5 months into the game there could be $75-$100 in winnings that can't be reinvested into other games because they are locked up.

            Freeing up the dough means more players will play more games. Since DB gets a cut of every bet, more bets means more money for DB too!

            • Have a competition for maintenance only open to former diet bet winners at their goal weight.

              Since the key to dieting is maintenance for long term success - It would be nice to be able to stay with diet bet even once the weight is lost and have a forum to stay competitive keeping the weight off. I realize this might be tough to monitor - so perhaps it should be open to prior contestants who have won from diet bet? Sure would be nice to be held accountable at maintenance too.

                  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.

                  • Create a continuing weight loss bet

                    The bet concept is working well for me, and I would like to repeat the process after this six-month period is finished. I could just start a new DietBet 10 round, but that doesn't seem like a good idea. The DietBet 10 is clearly geared to people who are just starting to lose weight and therefore will drop a lot of water weight quickly at the beginning.

                    It would be nice to have a continuing weight loss bet that you could "graduate" to at the end of the six month period. I would structure it such that your starting weight…

                    • Healthier weight loss goals

                      Losing 3% of your weight in your first month might be easy for those just starting their diets, but for people who have been dieting for weeks or months it is too high. If I am to lose 3% in the first month to win round 1 I need to lose just over 2 pounds a week(I weigh 268), which is above what dietitians recommend for most folks, and certainly a hard goal in any case. I think the Round goals for winnings should be

                      Round 1
                      2.5%
                      180 pounds(4.5 lb), 250(6.25 lb)

                      Round 2
                      2.5%

                      Round 3
                      2%

                      Round…

                        This would be great to find resources people share like links, articles or particularly awesome comments or ideas, or challenges. Or specific people's posts. It's difficult to scroll through, especially in an active game, especially in an active DB10, to find a specific post you remember liking or wanting to remember.

                        • DietBet 10 "All In" game

                          In addition to the regular DietBet 10's, have a DietBet 10 "All In" game where everyone pays up front. This way, people who want to/have to pay monthly can still play but those of us who want some higher stakes, pay up front. I wouldn't care if there was no discount.

                          • I think the site needs a reconstruction - e.g. improved comment section and a section for recipes

                            I think the comment section is very chaotic. Good advice, interesting stories etc. drown in "have weighed in and lost" and "ate a salad" posts. It works against an active conversation. Further, it is so difficult to find older posts - so I usually give up having some chit chat with my fellow losers.

                            I would also think that an entire section should be allocated for recipes.

                              • tokens in one pool for all my challenges

                                instead of making tokens only available for one challenge, they should just be put in a pool on my account. I can use them on any diet challenge rather than specific to one. As a participant, I can use them everywhere and not worry about having purchased too many and possibly not use them all, and as the dietbet sponsor, you are more likely to receive more money as I will probably buy more to cover all my participation.

                                • I think you need to Limit the Weekly Weigh In Prizes to only 1 per person.

                                  It only costs $20 to buy the tokens so 1 prize per person should be sufficient for anyone. It makes no sense for one person to get multiple prizes.

                                  • Put prizes related to fitbit/jawbone up etc early in the game

                                    Would like to have prizes that help you lose weight early in the game and prizes that help you keep the weight off later in the game. If you have prizes that would help us the most, please give those away in the early prize rounds.

                                      • Separate Official weigh-in details and reminders in Email Settings

                                        Please separate "Official weigh-in details" and "reminders" in email settings. I understand why Official weigh-in details is required, and I want to receive emails to remind me that I need to weigh-in, or that my weigh-in was accepted.

                                        It is really annoying though that I receive so many "Reminder: Weigh in regularly" emails, sometimes two days in a row, sometimes twice in the same day, often the day after I just submitted an official weigh-in. I want to change my Dietbet email to my spam email instead of my regular one but I'm afraid I will miss an official weigh-in!
