      I have to agree with this one. In my first DietBet, I lost something like 40 pounds and it was entirely do-able with strict discipline. In my second, I lost the additional weight successfully but it was MUCH dicier and MUCH more difficult, and I had to stay at an 1100-calorie level which was arguably too low, and work out 2-3 hours 6 days out of 7. I've therefore hesitated to sign up for a 6-month Round 3, though I have more to drop to get to my final goal. A slower-paced option would be great. People could choose whether to go balls-to-the-wall (especially for initial efforts), and take it at a more 'livable' level for later efforts ... which, by the way, would also lead up to adjusting one's efforts for a 'maintenance' level DietBet once one becomes available. It's a progression.

      Short version: "It’s not the speed at which you lose weight that matters, it’s the method. [...] There’s nothing wrong with dropping pounds quickly — as long as you’re doing it smartly."

        Though I won't expend a vote on this, I nonetheless think it's a good idea, and an easy-to-do improvement. A little extra clarity in the rules is SO easily accomplished, is always a good thing. This suggestion seems like something a developer could add to the Rules text in about ten minutes, total including checking in the code), to gain a big helpful effect.

              Re your query re filters versus searches ... Well, yes indeed, I love the new filters; they're great and help a lot. But yes, I agree with Katherine Bates that being able to search for particular people's posts, or topics and keywords one remembers having seen, would be awesome. Certainly in the "nice to have" category rather than an absolute prerequisite, but very nice. :)

                I think the idea is meant to promote deeper commitment, and higher reward, and isn't meant to be mean-spirited. I can see how some folks might find it so, though I don't. I think we'll let the votes it gets (or doesn't get) play out to see how folks take it, and whether they believe it would ADD to the game, overall.

                Yeah! This would ensure that the pot for that last round is commensurate with the 6-month effort people put in! The "half-the-amount" required to pay in should be set aside for the last round's pot, since half the pot is set aside for the last round, anyway, in the current rules.

                  I've learned just recently how important such an added type of game could be! Would LOVE to have this one considered as a specific implementation of the broader 'create a maintenance game' idea on which work has already started. This seems like a good way to handle it. :D

                    If I had more votes, I'd devote one here. It's a nice idea, and I'd sure like to see them in my Profile page, to remind me of my friends and their kind support, going forward in time.

                      I don't feel strongly enough about it to vote for this one, but I think it's not a bad idea to have DietBet support a side-view picture ... it really DOES show changes that aren't at all obvious with a front-view picture. Perhaps just as an option available to members, that they can choose to use or not. I have to admit that it *is* more motivational for me to see my side view changing in the mirror far more than the view from the front.

                        I guess I can see this as reasonable. But I have to point out one downside -- the point of the raffle is to buy extra motivation for yourself to weigh in regularly. Once you win a prize (for some people, the very first week), all further motivational benefit would be completely lost. Perhaps, instead of being disqualified entirely for future prizes, you could apply a formula that DIMINISHES their chances of winning again but doesn't eliminate it entirely. Like, if you win a prize, you are now 25% less likely to win again -- but at least the possibility (and the motivational value) remains. You could apply a multiplier factor to each participant to achieve that result.

                          This would also make better sense for those participating in more than one DietBet, when those games overlap in time. For instance, for the first game one could purchase the 20 tokens to cover it's weekly weigh-ins, but THIS change would allow one to purchase just enough tokens to do ONE weekly weigh-in on the SECOND game, after the first one finishes. It's opens up the choice.

                                I agree. Based on information people have chosen to make public, this would be helpful. For me, I'd love to be able to search for participants who live near me, so I can inquire whether they'd like to become workout partners.
