How many groups are you in?

I'm in 4, but am curious to see if that's above/below/about average. Also - do you have one or two that you tend to be more active in commenting/checking other members logs?

After trying many, I'm down to just one now. I really like my group and I just couldn't click with any others. Two disbanded while I was in them - everyone but me left - just lack of interest I think.

5 groups - 1 extremely active, 2 pretty active, 2 quiet
4 teams - none as active as any of my groups; just too big i think

Two groups, three teams. They have different flow... some will be very active and then get quiet, others are always quiet.

I am in a Weight Watchers Team and a Natural Foods Team. They are both very active and the members are very helpful.

3 groups, one team (another enthusiastic 50 day workout challenge member)
I have been in 2 of the groups for almost a year-I have found that groups cycle and are sometimes more active, sometimes very quiet, so having 3 means at least one is busy. A more interesting question might be, how many groups have you joined and quit (I know I have joined and quit at least a dozen until I found a good third group) It takes a while to find a good fit-to newer PTs, I would recommend not being afraid to readjust til you find a group(s) that fit your needs and works for you.

Another interesting question is how many groups have you started and stuck with until they were going? I have started a few groups and the ones I started were the most successful. Maybe it was a pride of ownership or whatever, but they are great groups.

3 groups -
1 very active - I love these gals,
1 moderately active,
1 not very active at all

I have been in a handful of others that just didn't work for me.

I'm down to just one. I was in another one, but I like it when it's the same members for the most part. The group I'm in has managed to stay intact for several months, so I feel like I'm putting all of my energy in with them and it's paying off.

3 groups, and I think 8 teams.
I definately like the team aspect more. I just can't get into the groups, especially when people don't say much or leave every other day or week. I'm tempted to do away with groups due to lack of communication. It's funny, but my teams are more active, and I'm more active in them too.

3 groups and 2 team. Have been in 1 of the groups for almost a year! Like the groups for more connection and the teams for more information and general support. This is a great web site- it has changed my life.

What's this "bump" thing?

That's funny that you would post this today. I just quit all of the groups that aren't that active and I'm down to one. I wish there was a way for PT to delete the members that aren't active in that group so it's easier to know who's current. Not a big deal I just like having thing streamlined and getting rid of the extra members that aren't doing anything.
Sorry, I'm using the terms "groups and teams" interchangably because I can't remember which one is which as I write this.

Getting rid of the members in the "Teams" that's what I meant.

i agree - i think it was mentioned in another thread earlier this week that they are no longer getting rid of inactive members so now they are just preventing active memebers from joining.

bump is what you do to bring an old thread back to life (bumping it up the list)

When I first started pt I was so excited that I joined about 8 groups. But it didn't take to long to realize that not many members were as active as myself. So I decided to start up a few groups of my own. Later to find some members that joined were just not as committed. So I decided to look around the blogs and find what I was looking for and then just invite them into some private groups. And now over a year later I have only five groups but wonderful active and committed members. As far as teams, tried three teams and they all ended up rubbing someone the wrong way.
