  1. Activity Wall posting - progress bar or some other "working" indicator

    When posting to the Activity Wall, after I've hit the Post button, it would be nice to see a progress bar or some indicator that the Post button click registered, until the post actually shows up on the wall.

    • Option to enter info more quickly

      I love SuperBetter! However, I have a slow internet connection, I don't love waiting around for pages to load.

      It really drags me down and slows down my motivation to use SuperBetter when I have to click on Quests, wait for quests to load, click on a particular quest, wait for it to load, click to say that I've done it and then repeat dozens of times for powerups, bad guys, etc.

      I love using SuperBetter as a way to give myself credit for working on goals, for doing difficult things, one small piece at a time. However, what would…

      • Method of undoing

        I am constantly misclicking, accidentally completing quests I didn't do, vanquishing bad guys who are still kicking my butt, etc. I would like to be able to UNDO this activity and have the points revoked. Is there a method?

          • Time zones.

            I live in New Zealand. My tasks get reset at odd hours. Would love to be able to set my time zone so that my start of the day isn't 8pm at night.

            • Portrayal of Women

              I am interested in using SuperBetter as a tool for staying physically and mentally fit while having to finish a long and arduous project. The idea for this site and the way it is arranged is fantastic. However, when I have emailed a few friends to tell them about the site, all six were first struck by McGonigal's stage make up and unnecessary cleavage. For a self-help (or self-acceptance) site, McGonigal's styling seems to have missed the mark, appearing either threatening or comically bad.

              Here's an email excerpt from a male friend of mine:

              OK. I'm glad it's not just…

                This has been a great conversation, and we appreciate the different perspectives offered here in the comments. We’ll keep these notes in mind when we approach future video content.

              • Add Note

                Sometime quests require you to think and list out something, would it be better to have a note that I can record down something? it is good that it can remind me and help me to think more

                (I am not sure whether it is exist or not)

                • Tracker "begin" button not working

                  I just wanted to let you guys know that while I love this program... I got one compliant. The "begin" button isn't working on the tracker portion on the secret lab. It won't work on either my laptop or smartphone

                  • Posting pictures to Activity Wall

                    Many of the quests ask you to post a picture to the Activity Wall, but there is no way to directly upload the picture at the Activity Wall.

                      Hi Jimmy – we’re working on changing the wording in the Power Packs to reflect that you can upload the photos as a Power-up while we work on direct-to-wall photo uploading. Thanks for pointing this out!

                      • General Speed at which activity can be recorded throughout the day

                        I have as an Epic Win 'To eat more healthily in order to reduce my cholesterol to in turn reduce my risk of having an heart attack'. This means that I have a whole series of daily quests such as ' Eat walnuts', take 'Fish Oil supplements daily', 'Consume 100g of tofu or soaya related fermented products' and 'Reduce my red meat consumption to one per week'.

                        This means that I like to record the achievement of a quest when it is done. Right now the process is really slow via my MacBook what with logging in, choosing the quest,…

                        • In ally role some of the navigation options seem inconsistent

                          Context you are both a hero and an ally and are logged in, but select the "ally" role at the top of your screen.

                          Some of the navigation options seem inconsistent -- the quests/powerups/etc. - take you to info about yourself, while others take you to info about the hero you are an ally to.

                            This seems a bit flukey (we’re not able to reproduce getting sent to your own info when you’re in ally mode) – but we totally agree that ally mode needs some serious TLC. That’s why we’re redesigning it from the ground up – stay tuned!

                            • Need a "getting started faq" or something simpler

                              The community pages encourage you to view the faq right off the bat, but there is too much information -- there needs to be a gentler introduction to it. If nothing else, have the first question in the faq be "How do I get started."
