Take the Beeminder founders' money


I’ve currently got two active MIT graphs, but I’m only supposed to have one at a time, that’s part of the point of them, so I’ve had support switching me back and forth between the two. There have been a few days where both of those MIT goals have come up red and while I was working on finishing up general mercy stuff, fogwall kept being the one getting delayed.


Ah, I understand. Thanks for the answer!


Announcement! We’ve been talking for a long time about how to improve the dogfood bounty rules to encourage more people to watch our goals, to spread the love around, etc etc. Of course if it’s too effective as a marketing tool for Beeminder then it blunts the sting for ourselves… I guess that’s solvable by just letting the amounts at risk get ridiculous though!

Anyway, we’ve gone in circles about what the best system should be and failed to change anything at all so let me just pick a couple small improvements and we can discuss publicly what else is worth changing. So, here they are (I’m also updating the fine print at the top of this thread):

  1. You can’t claim 2 dogfood bounties in a row.
  2. New high water marks (highest dollar amount a goal has derailed at) must be claimed by someone who hasn’t claimed a bounty in at least a year.


My golden goose!
