  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • Add a way to search through posts.

            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.

                  We have recently added a new community section where users can join/create groups that aren’t related to games and read/write blog posts – complete with a category for “recipes”. Check it out and comment with any further suggestions.

                  We’re working to improve our comment and other sections soon.

                  • DietBet 10 Fast Track

                    Cut the time in half to 3 months and first two rounds you lose 3%, last round you lose 4%. Some people can lose 10% faster than 6 months.

                    • 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!

                      • Lose 15% in a year.

                        A new option for people who need to lose more. With a more gentle slope. I feel the current 3,6,8,9,10,10 would need to be adjusted for people who want to lose weight slowly in order to adjust their lifestyle permanently.

                        • It should be easier to find / see my target weight for each round

                          Today's the day to weight in at the end of round 2, but nowhere on my profile or the game page is today's target weight. Rather, it shows the target weight for the *next* round. It's almost like they did this on purpose so some people will forget their target weight and accidentally submit a weigh-in that is 0.1 pounds too high (and lose). Pretty stupid. All 6 target weights should be easily discoverable (without having to recalculate them on my own).

                            We should have a fix released for this soon so that the round goals do not change in the sidebar progress module until AFTER you’ve submitted a weigh-in for that round.

                            We’re also going to add the goal weights into the progress circles on the profile’s dashboard so you can view all goals there without having to hover over the graph.

                              Definitely agree. So sorry for the delay on this. It is entered to be fixed soon so that the round progrses stats and goal do not change in the sidebar until you’ve submitted your weigh-in for that round. Please comment with any further feedback so we can continue to improve.

                            • Show the "True" Pot Size

                              I think there would be less confusion and fewer questions if the "true" size of the pot was shown, meaning, it would be great if DietBet showed the pot size with their cut already removed.

                              • It would be great if there was a version that tracked measurements rather than weight... to lose fat/gain muscle

                                I'm at a weight that would be considered healthy but am looking to replace (a lot of) fat with muscle. That may involve losing a couple of pounds but may not... measurements are what would tell the real story. If you had that I would join today.

                                  • I would like to be able to add credits ahead of time to cover the upcoming rounds

                                    I would like to be able to add credits/money to my account before upcoming rounds to cover the fee, rather then just having to wait until the first day of the round when my credit card is charged.

                                      • It would be a great idea to have a wheel of fortune like they do on Sparkpeople. Every day you weigh in , write, exercise... you get a spin

                                        Create a wheel of fortune like on the sparkpeople.com site. And when you weight in, comment, exercise, lose weight, write in journal... then you get a free spin. The spin will be for points and the points accumulate and you can buy virtual or real gifts. On Sparkpeople they have virtual gifts.

                                        • PayPal monthly payment

                                          I was wondering if this could be added as an option as I live in the UK so paying via credit card would incur an additional charge every month from my bank for paying in foreign currency.

                                          I am not in a position to pay upfront so this is stopping me from being able to take part.

                                          I have other recurring charges that I pay on a monthly basis through PayPal so I would appreciate if this option was available here too.
