Will I be able to make bets without using the keyboard on Manifold?

M$62 bet
Currently betting requires using the keyboard to enter a non 0 number in a text field. Will Manifold add a default non-0 bet amount and/or provide UI Pills with some suggested choices for the bet amounts before Sep 1, 2022?

Deciding how much to bet requires the sort of mental math that at times prevents me from engaging with a market, or just picking some default amount like M$10 or M$20. Also leads to avoiding markets where the profit potential is low (given limited manna). Assuming that prediction markets benefit from more people engaging, I'd be curious how people think about bet amounts; and how important it is that people are currently required to think about it; and pick a "smart & rational" amount. Compared to just deciding YES/NO and Manifold picks a reasonable default - adjusting the amount is left to power users.

Another proposal for betting without the keyboard: by sliding on the graph! https://manifoldmarkets.notion.site/Proposal-Slide-to-bet-c649ab13a8c24ef8bcbee78c2c618956

Haha we're definitely drifting off topic, but redoing Comments is a whole other bag of worms, see "Threading" here https://www.notion.so/manifoldmarkets/Comments-46d9337debd3425281303b3d509b9e86 Would always love to get your thoughts~

>I think "undo" is much much better Yes good point, and agreed. And tangentially, one-level nested comments would be nice!

Haha I'm actually a bit skeptical of "confirmation" as a pattern, I think "undo" is much much better. And good point re: just on the bet field. Our DPM fee schedule used to permit free undoing of trades as long as nobody else had participated in between - would love to see if we can re-enable this now that we're on CFMM

@Austin: Yes, I like this direction! You'd probably still want a confirmation, so maybe 2-click :) And if you don't end up going with up/down style on the whole question, could still do that on the bet amount field itself.

Curious what you think of this @AkhilWable: https://twitter.com/ManifoldMarkets/status/1517389584358813697 I was inspired by your earlier product suggestions to create this haha. More discussion here: https://manifoldmarkets.notion.site/Proposal-1-click-betting-f6b05c8598634240948131d450f14792

Haha, yes, bad question phrasing on my end! From the description: Will Manifold add a default non-0 bet amount and/or provide UI Pills with some suggested choices for the bet amounts.

My computer's even letting me click and drag the number from the date field! Idk if this is in the spirit of the question though.

just select "1" from "Sep 1, 2022" in the description, then right click paste in the amount field :p
