Feature Request/Idea: Provide an ongoing accounting of all the money I have not given to Beeminder. It could be called the Fun Bucket graph, or Fun Bucket account, etc.
The point is to implement some kind of reward system into the mix.
I’ve read about the previous ideas of payment up front, and Beeminder paying people back as a “positive reward”. I understand there’s some debate about how useful that would be or perhaps how difficult it might be to implement.
So what I’m suggesting here is that providing a reflection of all the money I have not paid to beminder, that itself is somewhat equivalent to the reward of moving money back and forth, so this idea might be a low cost way to implement a rewarding feedback.
One could use this graph to actually reward themselves for having achieved progress. For example, one could move the corresponding money, or a fraction thereof, from checking to savings, or make a purchase that they have been saving up for.
