I completely agree with comments above about the teams... the teams are great but there should be some sort of system to ensure even distribution of abilities. Seems like the same folks are always in the top scoring teams. Kudos to them for working super hard! (Truly, not sarcastically!!) I’m glad they have tons of time to spend working on this but not all of us can do so. It is frustrating to know that no matter how well we perform, we still won’t ever be in a top group. In the 2016 SAT I was able go go go with no problem. This year I had a five year old who needed emergency surgery on Monday morning after spending most of Thursday to Sunday, writhing in pain. I was up every 4 hours around the clock for 4 days giving pain meds...I was tired!, Sourcing went to the bottom of my priority list, unfortunately.
Maybe have 3 hangouts per day, with a larger amount of prizes at each one, instead of having one every 3 hours. I realize there are time differences, but maybe having one super early, one midday, and one late, could cover everything. It would also give people more time to claim their prizes between hangouts.
I love the idea of having another source of chatting. Maybe for events only, we could have another G2G category/board? All event advertising, recruiting, and team communications could take place there. There are currently 8 boards, perhaps we could add #9 and only open it for events? I’m not sure of the logistics of it, so it’s just a suggestion.
I also like the theory of making sure all team members get email notifications for their team thread. Again, not sure the logistics, but if it were possible that would be great.
All in all, I love the SAT and CAT. They are a lot of fun, and I can’t imagine what it must take on behalf of the team, to pull it off. You can’t please everyone and that is expected. Thank you for all you guys do, you rock!,,
