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.255 votes
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.20 votes
Thank you for your feedback. We will take this idea into consideration. Please let us know if you have other suggestions!
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.19 votes
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.18 votes
I think it would be a good idea to disclose how many people have submitted weekly token weigh-ins and are eligible for the weekly prize drawing.11 votes
the notifications are not at local times for people overseas. I've missed my weigh-in time several times because of it. :( I feel this is unfair.10 votes
I think their should be 3 pictures for weigh ins. Scale, front and side. I was looking at my old diet bet pictures because I've lost about 20 pounds and it doesn't look like it. I do take pics for myself from the side and it's very noticeable in my stomach and backside. I'm nervous dietbet will think I'm cheating because I'm still the same size hip to hip but smaller front to back. My stomach is way flatter. Unable to see it pics.6 votes
When I weigh myself on a hardwood floor versus a carpeted area, I weight approximately 50 pounds more. It would be very simple for some one to take a picture of the scale of a hardwood floor, then a carpeted one and claim that they lost 50 pounds, when in all reality, the surface you weigh yourself on may drastically change the weigh-in results. They should be a precaution or rule that you must way yourself in the same area as before to keep results accurate.4 votes
Instead of having to REMOVE tokens when signing up, change it to a button to ADD tokens if you want them! This would create a more user friendly method and prevent users from purchasing tokens without realizing it. This would be a logical change especially since tokens are NON-REFUNDABLE. Another option would be a warning page that asks "are you sure you want to purchase tokens?" before submitting payment. Or make tokens refundable. I can think of a lot of ways to solve this problem that would be more user friendly1 vote

If someone weighs in before the last day and is at goal it should be able to count as an official weigh in one you reach goal.
I met my weigh in goal a week ago. I think that when an unofficial weigh in meets goal you should be able to submit it as a final weigh in. The reason I say this is I met my goal a week ago, my weigh in is this week but I think I am posing because I have gone up my usual 5 lbs that I do every month at this time. It stinks! I met goal and worked hard and will weigh that again after I am not bloated, but I won't benefit. Maybe allow weigh i in official up to 5 days before?

Thank you for your feedback. We currently allow a one-time early weigh in up to two days before the end of the game/round for players who are out of town.
Otherwise, players have the 48 hour window to submit their weigh ins. Currently, we do not allow early weigh ins otherwise and we hope this helps players maintain their focus and weight loss efforts.
Additionally, an important part of weight loss is maintaining that loss.
With that said, I will pass the suggestion on to the rest of the team. Please feel free to share other ideas!
