  1. Change the number of "weekly weigh in prizes" based on the number of people who weighin.

    I know several people chose not to participate in the weekly weigh in option because the game we are in right now is so large (2000+ people), making chances of winning very low. When many people in a single game buy tokens, the odds are low, yet DietBet has plenty of money to offer more rewards.

    For example: If 1500 people bought 25 tokens for $20 each, DietBet takes in $30,000, or roughly $1,200/weekly weigh in. The prizes I have seen offered are in the range of $100, so DietBet is netting $1,100 each week.

    If instead, a prize were…

    • Maintenance

      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...

        • Endgame Dashboard winnings calculation is disappointing

          During the final weigh-in period for the Transformers, the total winnings shown on your dashboard starts high and then starts decreasing. I think this is because you calculate the final prize as if everyone lost and then decrease it as people weigh-in and win. However, while it's a nice amount of money to win in any case, it's very, very disappointing to see the number go down as people win. If you are going to show a changing pot of some sort, instead show it as an increasing pot - start assuming that everyone is a winner and increase it…

            Definitely agree. This was a bug that we released a fix for this a few weeks ago. Thanks for telling us! And thanks for being a part of the community!

          • Allow us to see actual weights on our chart.

            I'd like to read my official weights, but
            1) Verified weights just say the date.
            2) Circled weights give weekly averages.
            3) anything close to the diamonds cannot be accessed, because the cursor only triggers the diamond status ("Initial Weight", "Goal Weight Round 1", etc.).
            4) I don't see my starting weight ANYWHERE (I can see the dot on the chart & be within a pound or two)... but, it would be nice to see.

            • Show round winners on profile graph

              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.

              • Easier way to see starting weight

                I think it would helpful to either have your starting weight on the game page under progress or on the dashboard. I know it shows how much weight loss and my current weight and I can do the math but I think having that number easier to see reminds me I never want to see that number on the scale again. Currently I have to either look at my scale picture or click on "players" and type in my own name to remind me of my starting weight. It would also help on the profile to be able to click…

                • Display whether you've already played 1 token for the week's prize drawing or not.

                  It is easy to forget whether or not you weighed in for the current week's prize drawing. Now, official weigh-ins let you combine with prize weigh-ins, but the dates to weigh in are different. A few days later I will have forgotten if my weigh-in was for last week's prize or the current week's prize. Because I weighed in for both like 1 or 2 days apart.

                  The only clue I have is to count the tokens used during that game (activity page), but then I have to think about the math. Haha! Sad, I know. But I'm sitting there…

                  • Tokens seem to have been a waste of time and money.

                    Tokens were not well explained when they were created and before the game started. It was stated that prizes would be drawn on Thursday. Leading me to erroneously think that I should use and weigh in and use my token on Thursday for Thursdays drawing.

                    So I wasted a token. Also, you can use more than one token in a week, but you still only get one entry, so what's the point in using two tokens in a week?

                    Also, the chances of wining a prize with a token are fairly slim on a contest that is as large as…

                    • I think DietBet 10 games should have a "proven" host

                      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.

                        I have been using my Iphone app to log into my regular diet bets. Does Dietbet 10 have a mobile app? Or is it supposed to show in the current one?

                          I like reading the discussions, but I get annoyed by the "Ate a salad" or "Ran 3.1" miles posted twice because the person linked RunKeeper and MapMyFitness. I would rather see this under an "Activity" filter. So then someone could filter You, Discussions, Dietbet, Everyone (discussions and Activity), Activity (just those types of updates).

                            • Weigh-in word should NOT change for one week's token weigh-in.

                              Since there is no financial benefit (no additional entries to the drawing) for multiple token weigh-ins in one week, why have that option?
                              ESPECIALLY: why have the verification word change even within the SAME DAY!!???

                              1) I log in to get the word (sometimes on my phone),
                              2) then I weigh in when I have someone to take the pic,
                              3) then I go to submit when I have the time & my word has changed!!
                              This is an unnecessary hassle.
                              Sometimes it is hours between 1 & 2 and/or 2 & 3. It shouldn't be all or nothing.

                              If…

                              • What are the disqualification rules for DietBet 10?

                                Each round has its own disqualification threshold. If you lose more than the allowed percentage of weight, you will be disqualified for the remainder of the game.

                                Round 1 – 12%
                                Round 2 – 18%
                                Round 3 – 24%
                                Round 4 – 27%
                                Round 5 – 30%
                                Round 6 – 30%

                                Also, you can be disqualified for losing more than 12% in any single round. This will be calculated using the last official weigh-in submitted for the previous round. For example, if you started with an initial weigh-in of 200 lbs, but at the end of Round 2 you had…

                                  Thank you all for your patience! After consulting with our health and wellness advisors, we have finalized a new set of disqualification thresholds for the DietBet 10 game.

                                  Round 1 – 12%
                                  Round 2 – 18%
                                  Round 3 – 24%
                                  Round 4 – 27%
                                  Round 5 – 30%
                                  Round 6 – 30%

                                  Also, you can be disqualified for losing more than 12% in any single round. This will be calculated using the last official weigh-in submitted for the previous round. For example, if you started with an initial weigh-in of 200 lbs, but at the end of Round 2 you had only lost 4%. This would put your weight at 192 lbs at the beginning of Round 3. If you lost more than 12% of 192 lbs in Round 3, you would be disqualified.

                                  If you have any further questions about this rule update, please email beta@dietbetter.com. Thanks!

                                  • I really wish there was a way to block a certain player's updates from my feed.

                                    Certain players just rub me the wrong way. It's nothing offensive or rule breaking that they are posting, but just clashes with me personally.

                                      You can now choose to “hide activities” from another user. We want to make everyone feel comfortable in the game and understand that different personalities sometimes clash.

                                    • Will you consider accepting Paypal for DietBet10?

                                      Tried signing up for DietBet10 but there is no option for Paypal. Will you consider adding this? I prefer to use Paypal for dietbet!

                                        Great question! We accept PayPal for DietBet 10 if you pay your entire bet upfront, in-full. PayPal doesn’t allow us to collect money on a monthly basis, so you are required to use a credit card if you want to play monthly.

                                      • Allow someone to enter more than one DietBet 10.

                                        Perhaps more than one DietBet10, but must be 2.5 months into the current one before starting another? Something like that.

                                          You can now participate in up to three (3) DietBet 10 games at one time! This means you can participate in a total of 6 games at once (three DietBet 4 and three DietBet 10 games). Each game is separate and unique with their own timing for monthly payments, round start/stops, pots, etc. The beta test game does now count toward your limit of three (3) games.

                                          Also, weigh-in tokens cannot be used across DietBet 10 games at this time. You can only purchase and use them in each individual game. So you’ll need to submit weigh-ins in each game separately in order to be eligible for each week’s prize drawing. Weigh-ins cannot be re-used across games at this time.

                                          If you have any other questions or have difficulty joining additional games, please email support@dietbetter.com. Best of luck in your games!

                                        • Provide private messaging option for friends.

                                          Provide a non-publicly posted private message (PM) option for people who are mutual friends. A friend and I exchanged email addresses in a posting so we could email each other some information, and in the brief (5 minutes) time the posting was up, before deleting the posting as planned, it had already been 'Liked' by some random creepy guy.
