Hey all,

I wanted to announce I'll soon be removing check-in scores from the application. Related things like the Email Threshold or the "Last Month's Scores" graph are either going away or significantly changing.

This change is for many reasons, but primarily because one of the core purposes of the Faster Scale is to help the user learn to name their feelings, to see the patterns in their behavior, and to foresee where they will go if action is not quickly taken. Shortcuts (like an easy numerical score) are self-defeating. It short-circuits the learning process the person needs to go through.

The most visible change involves the "Email Threshold". This feature sends an email report to the user's partners when they score above a value. Since I am removing the score, the "Email Threshold" needs to go as well. For now, sending partner reports will be a simple yes/no checkbox to ALWAYS or NEVER send a partner report.

When this change is rolled out, users that have enabled partner emails will be switched to always send reports _regardless of their Email Threshold value_. Likewise, users that do not have partner emails enabled (thus no set Email Threshold) will never have them sent.

If all goes well, I'm hoping to roll this out within the next week or two.

I just updated the blog (https://fasterscaleapp.com/blog) with slightly more detailed information.
