    What is the EC on daily dares? can't find it anymore

    Hey,

    I saw that in the past daily dares have an EC section, now they don't, but people still refer to them.. am I missing something or just uninformed?

    Hi, EC means Extra Credit. It can be anything, if you feel like you have put in some extra effort. Think about plank hold 2 minutes for example. Did it in one go, or increased time, or you did harder version? Then you have earned EC

      When Darebee renamed the Daily Dare into exercise of the day the Extra Credit was removed - with the DD it was always doing the exercise in one go, no stopping. So when doing the exercise of the day, EC still means doing it non stop.

        Am I the only one who thinks it's sad that it was renamed? Somehow, 'Exercise of the Day' sounds uninteresting to me and I mostly ignore it now. The name 'Daily Dare' on the other hand usually tricked me into thinking 'oh yeah? See how I'm going to smash that dare!'. Nowadays, I look and think 'eh, can't be bothered'. Even when I think I want to get that 50 DD badge, I just don't get to it.
        It's probably a me-problem.

          Thank you all!
          Up until now I thought all daily dares are meant to be done in one go, that's why I reported in my check-in thread I sometimes managed to do half...
          Probably should have picked that up from the general darebee mindset (every exercise counts, totals throughout the day).

          I feel as if I unlocked a capability in a video game, now I can go for the quest of earning this badge

          And regarding the name - Daily dares are much better, totally agree lofivelcro

            lofivelcro It's not a "me-problem"! I feel the same way. But things sometimes have to change even though we don't like them. I don't generally go the Exercise of the Day anymore either. But then, I've got that badge!

              I feel the same lofivelcro , and there are others who agree. But it's an experiment, Neila or Darmer explained it some time ago in another thread. The idea is to make it feel more accessible for new people, and they'll revaluate the choice once they have more data. Who knows!

                Yeah, Anek, I've read that post by Damer some time ago, too. But for me, one of the great things of the Daily Dare was that it was called a 'dare' but still felt doable most of the time. Gave me a real kick even when I wasn't very fit or just a beginner in those things. Tbh, I think nowadays 'accessibility' often has a bar too low. That's only my opinion, of course.
                But interesting to see that I'm not the only one.

                  As a newbie who isn't in very good shape, "Daily Dare" sounds challenging and exercise of the day sounds boring. It's hard to find a catchy soundbite, I guess.

                    Laguiri I'm interested: Do you think 'Daily Dare' sounds too intimidating? Does it keep you from attempting them? I'm genuinely curious.

                      Well, the change happened when I knew of the existence of the website but I wasn't really using it. I had no idea of my own capabilities, so I didn't know if, say, ten push-ups is a lot or a little. The expression just sounded "advanced".

                        Interesting take, Laguiri. Tbh, I often look at the DD, or EotD and think to myself 'no way'. I've been mostly looking at the exercises themselves when it was still called Daily Dare but, like I said, I kind of lost interest after the name change.
                        I wonder if a completely different name, some kind of middle ground, would be an idea, like you've suggested.
