I will be on vacation during a weigh in. Is there anyway I can weigh in early using tokens so I don't have to go searching for a scale?1 vote
Please send us an email at email@example.com and we can look into this for you! Thanks!
What about adding an additional incentive/payout for players who maintain the weight loss for an additional amount of time? I like that the last months' goal is essentially to maintain the lost 10%, but I'd cheerfully kick in some extra cash for an additional few months of accountability while building better eating/exercise habits...406 votes
For each game, list the weigh in dates. I'm confused if it's the same date each month (feb 10, march 10, april 10, etc) or is it 4 weeks?
List the actual weigh in dates for each game. People travel a lot especially with the summer coming up and it would help to know if a game is a possibility or not10 votes
Thank you for your feedback. We will review this idea. Please let us know if you have other suggestions.
Given that these are longer games, it would be really helpful to have a proven host: for example someone who has successfully hosted previous games or someone who is a diet/fitness expert. The host could also be a dietbet employee. Another idea, applicable to ALL diet bets, is that hosts be rated (for open games) at the end of each DB and these ratings be shown when they post a new one: to show if they have been active, supportive, knowledgeable, etc.38 votes
I think it would be great to show the round winner on the profile graph like it does for individual games. I know it shows "verified weight" but everyone's weight is verified so you can't see who won and who didn't. I think it would help support those who didn't and celebrate with those who did. Maybe using a solid orange dot with a blue circle around it or a different colored dot to separate it from 4% games.63 votes
I wish there was an app for iPad13 votes
Good news. The app is now compatible with iPad. We still have work to do to improve it’s design and optimization for the bigger screen, but it’s now accessible through the iPad app store. You can also download the iPhone version through the app store filters, which will look much better proportionally.
Enable weigh-in's for DietBet 10's on the app!0 votes
Each round goal should be on your dashboard. Your originally beginning weight should be easier to locate on your profile page.0 votes
Each game;s name should be different even if it is just adding a number to it if you keep it the same title
Each game should have a different name. I joined 3 dietbets with the same name - Bet Big to Win Big (keep the same name but add a number to them) It is so confusing to have all the same. Always have to do searching of details: dates, statistics, to know which one I am looking at. Simple fix "Bet Big to Win Big #1, #2, #3, etc. etc. etc.1 vote
Hi there! Thanks for your feedback! Because of suggestions like this, we now include the dates in many of our game names. We hope this helps you! Thanks!
A list or chart to see when we use our tokens for weigh-ins. It'd be nice to have an easy way to see when we use them.1 vote
Hi there! Thanks for your feedback! There is a box on the right hand side of the website for your game that shows all your Token information. We hope this helps you in the future! Thanks!
Hi there! Thanks for your feedback. We have had several updates to the app since you posted this so hopefully the app works better for you now. Please feel free to share any other suggestions!
As its set up now, in order to use a coin I have to go onto my computer, take pics from my phone, send pics to my email, open & save them to my computer, go to dietbet & submit the photos then go back & delete my pics off the computer. If coins showed up on the mobile app, all I'd have to do is click for a coin then submit my phone pics. As it is I'm not getting all my coins used because it takes too much time. Thank you.1 vote
Hi there! Thanks for your feedback. You are now able to submit a token weigh in using the app so you should be all set! Thanks!
It's not an idea really, there should be an easier way to post official weigh ins for the 10% game. Without the prompt, how do I submit my photos and weight? I've posted them on my game's feed via a comment (publicly) but would prefer to do it like I would in a 4% game.1 vote
Hi there! Thanks for your feedback. During the 48 hour weigh in period, you should always receive the prompt on the game page to submit your weight. If you do not receive the prompt or if you accidentally close out of it, we recommend refreshing the page. Also, there should be an orange Submit Now button on the screen. We hope this helps!
For 6 month dietbet have each milestone goal weight by due date listed in my profile -1 vote
Hi there! Thanks for your feedback. If you go to your Dashboard, you will see your personal goals laid out over the 6 month period. We hope this helps!
Just got a weigh in rejected because I had multiple words. I am in two games. I used the website to upload, and it allows for one weigh in to be used for multiple games.
Can multiple game token weigh in's be allowed like on the website?1 vote
Thank you for the feedback. We do know allow weigh ins to be re-used from the app as well as the site.
Please let us know if you have other suggestions!
What can be done to get members to engage more? there are over 400 in my group and literally only a handful of people post.
I feel like we're in the group to support and engage and my group just isn't active at all.1 vote
Thank you for connecting with us. Some groups are more active than others and we understand that it can be frustrating when you do not feel as supported as you would like. If you have specific ideas to encourage engagement, we would love to hear them!
My hesitation about participating in DietBet 10 was that I am already (and only barely) within the healthy weight range for my height and age. I would like to make sure that a 10% weight loss from here is healthy and feasible.2 votes
Thank you for your feedback. While we do not provide personalized coaching, we do have limits in place that do not allow players to have a goal that would place them below a BMI of 18.5,A BMI < 18.5 classifies you as “underweight” according to the National Institutes of Health.
We do also offer shorter games, the Kickstarter (4 weeks) and are running a beta version of a Maintainer game.

I don't like how after the months goal is over you cannot see the goal anymore. Is there anyway to keep that number visable?2 votes
Thank you for providing your feedback. We have made some changes to allow players to more easily view the goal for a round that has just recently ended, while also viewing the upcoming goal. This is visible on the main game page.
Additionally, you can always review your goals and progress by going to the Dashboard of the game.
Please let us know if you have any other ideas!
This is for both DB4 and DB10 posting comments that exceed the limit - when an alert is received for exceeding the 1000 character length, it would be helpful to provide the number of characters that is in excess.2 votes
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. At this time players can input up to 2000 characters. Once they reach that point, they can no longer input characters.
It took me forever to find the unofficial weigh in link. I realize you are a business but don't try to make more money by tricking people into buying "official" weigh in tokens.6 votes
Thank you for providing your feedback. We have made changes since your original post, so we hope that this has resolved your issue. If you feel this is still unclear, please let us know.
