Weekly Submissions: How many is too many?

8 posts in this topic

We've had a busy few weeks submission-wise, with six or seven people submitting weekly for the last couple of weeks, and I'm wanting everyone's feedback on whether it's too busy. It would be nice to be able to accomodate everyone during busier weeks, but only if it works. So, what do you guys think: Does it? Did you find that you were getting enough feedback with the increased numbers? Did you have trouble keeping up (though of course, you don't have to respond to every critique every week). Let me know what you think.

My opinion should count for little since I'm currently not what you would call an active member. But were I actually critiquing, I still wouldn't be able to keep up with 6-7 submissions per week. I'd end up doing two to four, and maybe possibly getting to the rest at some hypothetical future time where submissions are few and free time is abundant. In other words, I would never get to them.

Of course, RE has never worked on the expectation that everyone will crit everything, but during the times that I've been active I've always tried hard so to do. It never felt right to expect others to crit me if I didn't reciprocate.

I like five.

If the previous weeks are any indication, looking at my backlog, I'd say that five are enough.

I'd also say that five is a good number. There are weeks when I can do more, but on average five a week is more than enough.

I'd agree with everyone that five is a good number. Particularly now, when school is starting, many of us will have less time to write and critique, and while I might be able to keep up with five a week, more would be too much.

I'd agree that more than 5 might be a bit much. I've still got a backlog of stuff to critique from the last two weeks, although the start of the school year has a little to do with that also :)

Thanks for the feedback, all--sounds like we're pretty much unanimous in thinking five is a good number. We'll try that out for a while. :)

(If you meant to comment and haven't had a chance yet, I'll still be checking this thread, so don't feel that the ship has sailed.)
