Request: Show hint when entering a positive rate for a whittle-down goal

#1

“To how many $unit do you want to commit yourself?”
“3 daily”
“OK great! I’ll get you set up. Wanna go to your goal page now?”
“Yes please”

Then you find that your YBR goes up rather than down.
Quickly you realise “Ohhhh I see what happened here. Leaky abstraction! Let’s change the rate to -3”.
And then you end up with this:

So you either

  • recreate the goal and hope you remember,
  • bug support about it or
  • open the visual road editor and hope you edit the right road.

None of which are what you set out to do in the first place.
