As an experiment I'm trying out asking this in the new Beeminder
Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/beeminder/
Question of the day: We need freebees (goals that start with $0
pledged) so people can get up to speed with Beeminder before putting
in a credit card. But once you get it, your credit card is in, and
you're beeminding for real, is there still value in having freebees?
Do they just water down the point of Beeminder, or do they help in
lowering the activation energy for starting new goals and lead to more
goals with real pledges in the long run?
If you're amenable to participating in a Facebook group, please answer
there. If you're not then answer here! (The ratio of answers here vs
there will serve as a meta straw poll on the value of a Facebook
group. We also have a Discourse.org forum almost set up but are
procrastinating on some loose ends with it. That will be a separate
Bottom line: What do you think of freebees, and, as an experiment,
please answer on Facebook unless you dislike Facebook. Thanks
