Nitpicking punctuation in Beeminder's copy

This is about as minor a complaint as can be, but the inconsistency has really been bugging me. Compare:

Dialing your road means changing your commitment starting a week from now

Ratcheting means reducing your amount of safety by making the bright line jump closer to today’s datapoint

Post-derail respite (formerly “days of mercy”) is how much safety buffer you automatically get after derailing.

The third ends in a period. The first two don’t. I suggest ending them all with a period, making them into proper sentences. Or remove the period from the third, if you must. But having two of them be one way and one the other is completely nuts.


Agreed! And this use of the bugabee section of the forum is very much endorsed. Thank you!


Fixed! :heart: :heavy_check_mark:
