So like many I am addicted to MFP and think it works pretty darn well, especially given the price.

I'd like to see better graphs, there are some decisions you folks make re: the origin being zero and scaling that are "interesting" and actually make it difficult to see the data itself.

It would also be nice to choose to make the graph public or private or even let it be embeddable on outside websites.

But mostly, I'd like a feature similar to what Google Finance charts does, where I can add notes to specific days on the chart saying: "Took my steroids", or "Attended Eating Contest", or "Taco Bell induced Weight Loss". and then have those noted and available for me to see later. This would actually be incredibly helpful to me in tracking A) my diet, and B) my weight and C) Various Medical or Biological events....

Well, I think you have great suggestions for the graphs! I came here to also write my suggestions about it! I mean, The graphs are way better in the iPhone app than on the website. I don't understand how you pick the origin but it's terrible! It should fit better the data. Also, I don't like that weight is displayed in straight horizontal lines, it should look like in the app (or any other graph) and you should connect the data (maybe adding interpolation would be interesting). I use the one here when I want to see more than my last 3 months (specially when I've been away and haven't been able to check in) so... Please please! Improve the reports!

I personally want to export the data to either an Excel spreadsheet or a csv file.

I would just be happy if they fixed it so the weight scale is a little tighter.

Right now when I show a 7 day progress report, the scale is from 280 to 200!?!?

My actual weight for those 7 days vary from 238 to 234.

My changes in weight are really hard to quantify.
