Often the days that I think things were going well, I wasn't doing as well as I thought, and days when I thought it was going poorly, I could look back later and see that it was great progress.
I have taken a look at the site myself, and appreciate your concerns about certain features encouraging unhealthy habits. What I like about the site is how it makes no effort to teach its members how to meditate, leaving it up to the individual to practice according to their own tradition and as they see fit. While judging one's own meditation in terms of good vs. poor, productive vs. non-productive, can be misguided, the comment line needn't be used this way. Similarly, the rating field, where the meditator has the option of rating each sitting with a score from one to ten, can be used to rate the difficulty
experienced during the meditation. Both of these features, used this way, provide a record of one's past diligence which can serve to encourage the meditator when motivation is low and confidence is flagging.
May all beings be happy.
