  1. What is a group code

    The SuperBetter community is very diverse in objectives and very American in cultural values; especially in the forums. It would be nice to be able to promote a group code in my profile that is culturally, linguistically and possibly objective oriented; this might be a something like 8 chars for local, 8 char for cultural categories, 8 char for objective type and 8 char or more for SuperBetter applications. The codes could be used to improve relevance in the forum;providing improved filtering tools. It could make seeking allies easier for people who are feeling sensitive about their objectives.

  2. Use Super Better to help people experiencing the pain of divorce

    I just saw and enjoyed Jane McGonigal's Ted talk. I wonder whether the Super Better game might be used by people experiencing the emotional trauma and loss of divorce to ease their pain and faciliate their transition to a better future.

  3. Jane - I adore you - thank you for your Ted Talk

    I have had a lifelong interest in trauma recovery. I've had a brain injury (physical - concussion) plus brain injury (couple of incidents leading to PTSD.) I cannot wait to play your game and share with others. God bless you for your point of view and work.

  4. Construct this around other age groups! And Toddlers!

    I posit that this wonderful app should not only be constructed for adults, but for toddlers, tweens, and teens! I have a four year old, an almost three year old and an infant. Yes I breed football teams (all boys). I digress. This is an amazing game that brings gamification to life! Should we not be spreading these important ideas to our children? (If my auto spell puts ramification one more time…mer!lol) Please think about making it available for Toddlers!

  5. Hi I'm Jayson Powers, and I'd like to donate an android port

    Hi, My name is Jayson Powers, I've contacted Jane M. on Facebook, left a extremely long explanation, anyhow, I'm wanting to give an android port of the website, I have all the time in the world, if you see me popping from place to place on the site, I'm just getting a layout, no hacking, lol. If someone gets with me I could give them info on a bitbucket.org repository (private), I have a temp one set up. Any questions contact my email and I'll get back with you.

  6. SuperBetter for Kids

    I'm a full-time teacher, and I was just thinking about how cool it would be to have some quests specifically designed for elementary-age kids. These quests only take a couple minutes and could easily be part of our morning meeting time. I can always modify the existing quests to fit my Kindergartners, but I think it would be fun for them to have their own special quests and a way for us to track our progress throughout the year. Start building that resilience from a super early age!

  8. PTSD is not the opposite of a positive mindset

    The intro to your book contrasts ptsd with post traumatic growth and asks the question, "what makes the difference between buckling under extreme stress and flourishing because of it?"

    Your answer is, essentially, a positive outlook. This suggests that ptsd can be avoided through having the right mindset.

    Ptsd is a physiological reaction to extreme stress. You might as well suggest that diabetes or brain damage can be avoided with the right mindset.

    While a positive outlook can make it easier to live with ptsd, and to achieve post traumatic growth, the suggestion that it will fix or prevent ptsd…

  9. Use in teaching

    I am thinking about how I might use this with underaspiring, undercofindent and poorly organised students. I will let you know how I get on.

  10. Make the SB ipod app available for older Ipods!

    I have friends who would love to use the Superbetter app, but they can't because it says their ipod doesn't have a camera. A lot more people could use the app if it were available for older iPods!

  11. Make a Google Chrome app for SuperBetter

    Google Chrome apps work like bookmarks for your internet browser - websites are represented with icons that show immediately when you open the Chrome browser. A SuperBetter app on Google Chrome would allow people who use Chrome to be reminded of SuperBetter & easily access the site.

  12. Go Nonprofit, get Bill Gates to get you servers and support.

    The last few weeks I've had much difficulty logging on and using the site. Someone suggested it might be a traffic issue, and I log in before 7 am and everything is working pretty well (still have that comment post glitch where I have to refresh to see that something has posted). I have a master's degree in public and nonprofit administration and think this might be an avenue to make SB sturdier and better without going commercial.

  13. archetypes

    I have not played the game, but I read Jane's TED talk on it and find the approach and her story wonderful. I'm a freelance screenwriter and instantly wondered if archetype characters such as described by Joseph Campbell or in Christopher Vogler's book "Mythic Structure" might make the game even more accessible worldwide as these characters and story points have been found to exist all over the world.

  14. Make it work more than 10% of the time.

    It's a downer when you just completed a Quest(s) and can't sign in or post to SuperBetter. Kind of defeats the purpose of the program.

  15. Weight loss - superbody

    Hi Jane... you have a fan here ever since I watched your TED talk. Bravo. I wish I had known about your game when I had depression.

    The problem I'm takling at the moment is weight loss, and I've come across something in my readings that makes me think you can help. I hope you're intrigued. It's not a huge problem (forgive the pun) - I need to lose about 10kg. Problem is I can lose 5kg, and then I get distracted and put it on again.

    I have been reading "Influencer" by Patterson and Grenny. It looks at what…

  16. A guide for users without iphones

    It would be helpful if there was a system like Superbetter that can be taken with you throughout the day- for people like me without an iphone.

    While the site can be accessed after I get home from my lectures, the reinforcers from quest completion and the like come many many hours after the behavior they're reinforcing. I love the site/game, but this delay will hurt its effectiveness.

    Previous to discovering this site, I was working on a token reinforcement system based loosely off of Skinner's work. I'd track my "points" with marks on an index card, and arrange a…

  17. Mobile health market data

    Hi,

    I'm researching data on mobile market health apps for a university project.

    By any chance do you have any figures?

    BTW I love your game ;)

    Have a great day and thanks a lot!

  18. kickstarter for android app

    If you guys ran a kickstarter for creating the android app, I would absolutely back you guys. This is an incredibly progressive idea on personal growth and wellbeing.

  19. Booklet or App for kids counseling

    I'm a school counselor. I've created a small booklet that I use to apply these concepts with children that I work with. I shared this with one of the teachers that I work with who has a difficult class and she uses the concepts daily in her class. I cited you on the booklet, and I hope it's okay that I have done that. The booklet works okay, but I would love to have a better way to use SuperBetter with my stuggling kids. The concepts are so empowering and fun. If it would be possible to have an app…

  20. SuperBetter as a basis for mental health treatment in teenagers

    I am currently working to use the structure and foundation of SuperBetter in my job as a Skills Trainer for teenagers(13-18 yrs) in a mental health treatment facility. Unfortunately, since we do not have the resources, nor would it be safe to provide each client with a computer, all resources need to be transferable to paper.
