Is Beeminder at all amenable to offers to pay $x for a feature to be implemented (or bug to be fixed)? Sometimes I’d pay $20 to have something right now instead of whenever you get around to it. Other users could offer additional amounts, so it could end up being a sizable amount (or not, if no one cares enough to pay).
Could implement it as a goal that I’d intentionally allow to derail if the feature gets implemented…
I would chip in 5$ for a bounty to build a “long view/short view” switch that would alternate the graph between a 2-week period and a 2-months period
Great idea to start this thread! I once got so excited about a proper mechanism for feature bounties that I grabbed bountable.com.
Proposed convention in the meantime: click if you’d also chip in at least $5 for the stated feature.
I would also chip in for this, if I could could set the durations of “long” and “short”. I don’t particularly have use for a 2-month view, but I do have several graphs where I want views of “last few weeks” and “since the last time I re-launched this goal”.
Also, I’d suggest that if this is ever implemented, there be a max per-user bounty that’s less than the bounty to actually implement the feature. Otherwise features could be entirely dominated by a user with more money than sense.
By the way @dreev, this
a) is easily implemented if you just enabled the “experimental” SVG(?) graph in the goal view
b) would sound nice as “custom graphs” in the list of premium features
Would definitely pay for this, although I think it’s potentially a bigger idea than just a beeminder feature.
