    • 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.

      • Allow us to choose which photos are shown while still maintaining the option to hide others

        I would like to be able to lock my scale photos but unlock my full body photos. I think that it would be nice to decide if we want to show or hide pictures as a group rather than have to show all or hide all. My full body pictures are very motivating to me and I think being able to show off my progress would be motivating to others. BUT I still want to maintain my privacy and not share my actual weight at this time.

        • Post the specific No-Lose Guarantee for DB10s

          Can you edit the rules or "how it works" page for DB10s to clearly state the No-Lose Guarantee and what it means? Too many people think that if they lose a round, they have to drop out of the game. More people would keep going if they knew they could get it all back. Make the guarantee easier to find.

          • Make it easier to weigh in.

            When my weigh in is not accepted, like face not showing enough. Don't change the key word on me tomorrow. By the time I get the news the next day that I messed it up, then I get all ready again to do the picture with my spouse helping, the word is changed and I can't even tell until after I download the first picture. Really? Another extra loop of weighing in? So I have to take pics twice and upload twice each time? Am I missing the easy way to see the word? And I can't easily minimize the…

            • 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?

              • Would like a category or prize for people that have made good improvement during a month

                This would be a consolation prize for people that didn't make their cumulative goal but made good progress. The prizes could also include just a ribbon by their name that displays until they reach their cumulative goal, or something like that, doesn't need to expensive.

                  • Why aren't measurements as good as scales?

                    A few suggestions here to have an option to include measurements. The argument that people don't have access to sophisticated measurement tools (such as a measuring tape and a diagram of where to measure?) doesn't fly with me; very few scales are going to be accurate, either, and even less so when it comes to body composition. A person's weight can fluctuate over five pounds in one day.

                    • 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.

                      • 3 pictures

                        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.

                        • Dashboard should have custom weight goals apart from %ages.

                          In DB10 dashboard, the rounds show date left, pot size, round dates and monthly goal in percentage. Custom weight goal in kg/lb (per user preference) should also be added to this game progress for each round in DB10 dashboard.

                          • Weigh-In Areas Differ

                            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.

                              • 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…

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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
