Hi Brian,

I have a suggestion for the ticker (although it's already fantastic!)...

What do you think of adding a small space on/around the ticker for people's height?  Height makes such a difference in your goal, I think a lot of people would find it helpful & interesting to see people's height compared to their weight & goal.  I know there was a thread about height, but it would be so much easier to see it next to the ticker.

Good idea Julia !  That would be most helpful when comparing people's goals & progress to your own!

Poor Brian - good thing you are smart cause we depend on you for a lot, eh?   (that's my little Canadianism for today - been caught on it a few times this week)  :D

I think it is a good idea to have that as an optional field.  That said, I'm not sure where to put it.  It seems like the only place would be on the line at the bottom that tells how much you've lost and how much you have to go.

I've considered this:

Code Sample
167.4 lbs. lost, 0 lbs. to go (100 %), 5'10" tall


and this:

Code Sample
5'10" tall, 167.4 lbs. lost, 0 lbs. to go (100 %)


and am not sure what I think of either.  What do you guys think?  If you don't like either of those, any other suggestions on placement?

Thanks Michelle.   :p

Little things, like text changes, are fairly easy.  If it helps people get more out of it, then I vote it gets done.   :)

Thanks Brian! That was quick.  I like the second one, because you're still ending with the percentage lost.  :)

I'm glad someone else brought this up! I started a thread a while ago to see how many other women are the same height as me. I'm really curious about everyone's goal weight compared to their height.

I like the second style better too.

Aw man....I went to update my current weight so that my ticker would move and it changed to maintanence. I have no idea why I only changed my current weight. Can someone help me? I want to see my numbers. Thanks

You just chose the wrong link for your ticker.  Go back to your control panel and choose the first red link, not the second.  Regenerate and you'll be all set.

This reminds me that I need to ponder adding an option for the height on the tickers...
