  1. Pledge vs pot

    I want to join a second dietbet but I have no idea what the difference is between pledged and pot. If it says pledged does that mean it's not
    Guaranteed that's the pot?

      • Increase max weight loss restrictions for DB10 games

        Currentlu, DB10 games have a max weight loss of 30% of body weight. That sounds like a lot, but I actually was concerned about losing too much. I understand the importance of healthy weight loss, but it is possible to lose a little more than 30% of your weight in 6 months healthily.

        I started out at 350. If I had started a DB10 when I began dieting in June, I would have to ensure that I didn't get below 245 by December. November now and I'm down to 260 and likely to hit 245 by my 6 month mark.…

          • At signup make and ADD button instead of a REMOVE button

            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 friendly

            • 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.

              • token challenges

                keeping people motivated within a transformer challenge by offering prizes for challenges within the challenge. example, instead of a token weigh in post proof (like pics) of four days at the gym or working out in one week. Players could use their tokens for a set and win prizes that way.

                • 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…

                    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!

                  • Weigh in tokens for all Transformers

                    Weigh in tokens for Transformer games should be usable across all 6 month games that a player is part of and should not expire at the end of a game.

                    • 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.

                      • Diagnostic personal assessments for transformer games

                        For DB 4s you give a diagnostic personal assessment that includes how many calories to eat to lose the weight in 4 weeks, what your BMI is, etc. I'd like to see that for the 6 month transformer games too. This is not a new thing to DB. I just want to see it for the DB 10 as well as for the DB 4.

                        • Mandatory 6 Month Bet

                          Make it so that if people want to join a 6 month bet, they have to pay for all 6 months and stick with it. Otherwise they can just do a single month bet if they can't commit to an entire 6 months. This would make it so people cant quit and give up and are "forced" to stick with it or lose their money.

                                • Token roll over

                                  If we have left over tokens from a previous DietBet please have them roll over to the new DietBet. You scale how many prizes you give out based on how many people submitted tokens. So you are not losing money by having the tokens roll over.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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!

                                      • Offer Challeges / Competitions for 2, 3 or 4 teams as part of the setup. Women vs. Men; West Coast vs East Coast; Family vs Family ....

                                        My suggestion is for a new game host to set up an option for multiple teams, that compete within the Dietbet. Participates can choose a team and loosing weight as a member of the team. The participate would be able to be neutral and not choose a team. The option would give Dietbet participates motivation to post weight loses more often; login to the website for current standings including top members of the team by percentage and added incentives to support their team of choice. Another option could be a monetary bump in winnings such as 60% to winning team…
