We added a few new features this weekend:

Competitions administration – for fine-tuning your walking competitions.

Group autolinking – add a pound sign in front of your group sign, ie #portlanders – similar to how you refer to usernames via the @username syntax. These two bits were borrowed from Twitter – great stuff.

Also, we’ve added a new type of competition – Goal Challenge on Step averages

There are essentially two main types of competitions:

Goal challenges challenge everyone to strive for a certain goal – such as walking 100,000 steps in a week, or keeping an average above 8,000 for the month. Everyone who meets this goal ‘wins’.

Normal competitions have only one winner, whether it’s a group or an individual.
