Network Restored

We sincerely regret our network outage.

The network is fully restored.

The outage was cased by actions of an AT&T technician. The nature of his actions made it very difficult to trace the error.

We will work towards adding redundancies to our network.

Again, we sincerely regret the outage.

Improved Logging, Fewer Errors

We have recently improved logging of errors from the browser.   This has allowed us to have new visibility into errors that occurred within the browser.  We have corrected a couple of important errors.

Our web pages have a large amount of script code that runs within the browser.  Until now, many errors with this script were not trapped or logged.  The reasons is that the script itself needed to load before the error could be trapped or logged.  We have updated this system to phone home with more often.  We can now have some visibility into errors where the pages did not load completely.

Please let us know if you see any errors trying to use the site.

Chart Trackables, other new features

Thank you for being a user. Today we've rolled out a really nice batch of changes for you.

  • Trackables have been moved from Preferences to the main page because as of now...
    You can chart them! It's our new favorite feature (sorry Photo Timeline) to be able to see things like hours of sleep, and glasses of water in line with weight and feeling indicators. What a great way to detect patterns and the relationship between different wellness factors. Once you've filled in a few Trackable entries (from your normal Enter Weight form) have a click on Options to see this information on your chart.
  • Who is 'username3882'? Let others see your real name instead of your login name. For the Chart Sharing and Together pages if you've provided your real name that's what shows up for others to see.
  • We've upgraded the ? help popups to provide more information in a clearer way. If you think we should add to or improve the help on our site send us a message at
  • Now Together groups with lots of members (like over 100) are possible. Before this change things were a little too sluggish for our large groups. The Together summary, below the chart, is now the place to go to add/remove people from the chart. We've added a last entry date column to the summary, it's handy to sort by to see who's made recent changes.
  • As we increase the capabilities of WeightChart the effort of doing more can begin to slow things down. In this release we've optimized many pages to load and run faster, in some cases it's a dramatic change. We hope you've never thought about performance on WeightChart, improvements like this are made so you won't.
