I know everything in here has been said before, but just to get it in one place:
The Road Editor is almost a great premium power-user feature, but actually using it right now is difficult and frightening. On one side are “road can’t get easier in akrasia horizon” errors, which don’t explain why Beeminder thinks I’m making the road easier (and I almost always disagree with it), and on the other side are mistakes that make the road harder (in a way that can’t be undone) or even insta-derail me.
Between these is an infinitesimally small target of edits that don’t change my road within the akrasia horizon at all, but change it in the past or >7 days in the future. I’m almost always trying to hit that target, and I almost always fail unless my edits affect only the future at least 7 days out. If I do manage to edit my road in approximately the way I want to (I frequently just give up) it’s by making the road a tiny bit harder within the akrasia horizon just to get rid of the (IMO inaccurate) “road can’t get easier in akrasia horizon” errors.
I understand that you want to redo the road editor to be graphical and shiny and all, but can we please get these in the meanwhile:
- An “I know what I’m doing” button that lets us disable akrasia horizon enforcement temporarily for a goal with >7 days of safety buffer;
- An undo button that we’re always allowed to use (not just when the road is broken).
