Burn It Group Question

I know that several people have expressed interest in being in more than one Burn It group so that they can get more music. I may change the group sizes depending on how everyone feels, so take a minute to vote and let me know how big you want your Burn It group to be.

personally, I feel that if some people want to participate in more than one group then that's their prerogative. but if I get put in a group with 6 or 7 people, spend the money to send that many cds out and still receive only a couple of half-assed cds b/c everyone else is too lazy to do their part, I'll be pissed. I hope I'm not the only one that feels that way. it's just a real waste of my time and money if people aren't going to participate after they sign up.

I would prefer larger groups, because in the end you only get 3 CDs. (It would be different if everyone got your CD too - send 4, get 4 back.) I still think that people should be allowed to sign up for 2 groups though, if nothing else.

Ditto what girl said. For the last 2 Burn-It's, I haven't received all my cd's but I'm still eager to participate. I'm hoping bigger groups will be the answer this time around...

32 votes so far. 14 say stay. 18 are for higher and of those 11 are for at least 2 more. Interesting.

It might just be easier to let people sign up for 2 groups OR pick how many they want to exchange with? (I don't know how this interferes with you keeping track)

you know... i agree with mail 4 get 4 back... last time i mailed 4 and got two back, and one of them didn't even follow the rules. i am going to bow out of this burn it, only because i am not big into soundtracks and scores... but i definitely think you should get back as many as you mail out... and kim, if you have everyone mail one to you, then you can maybe mail a random one to someone whose group failed to meet the rules? just an idea.

I think Allie has a great idea with mailing a random one. Kymberlie, if you need help with this, I'd be glad to help.
