Can't you just lie about your data?

Well, if you were the type who would falsify your data to weasel out of paying what you pledged on your Beeminder goal, then you probably would've rolled your eyes and walked away a long time ago, certainly before making it to the depths of our help pages.

We've written a few blog posts about weasels in the past: Combatting Cheating, Weasel Heart-To-Heart and Fake Data is the Devil.

If I think I'm going to be tempted to cheat, do you have any recommendations?

Sure!

  1. Use automatic data sources via our integrations
  2. Our No-Excuses Mode can prevent you editing autodata (it's complicated)
  3. Our partners at Boss as a Service can send Beeminder data that they've verified about your various tasks
  4. Showing off your graph to family and friends so that falsifying your data is effectively lying to them

Some combination of those can help keep you on the straight and narrow!
