Proposed protocol/convention for using the Note field


This is something I started doing at some point and recommend: Always add a note to each promise with the context or the medium the promise was made in. See for examples.


  1. You know where (Slack, email, hangouts, etc) to grep for the URL if you want to see the context.
  2. When rogue promises appear (crawler spam, user error, people trolling you) it’s easier to distinguish from the real promises because it doesn’t have a note.

Open question: Should the UI encourage that with specific fields for whom a commitment is to and where the “I will” statement was uttered?


I’d like to have a prompt for that context. I think it’d be useful. Esp for further-off commitments.
