I like the idea, and collaboration is pretty awesome. I see lot of persons mentioning they want to encourage team diversity, but I think this will
happen naturally or can be encouraged by specific side prizes such as 'best new team'.
I'd like to see the members decide their own team sizes as much as possible. The less rules, guidelines, application forms, and moderators involved
the better. In my head, I don't even see a huge issue with having solo teams. They will be at a disadvantage in research power, but it lets the
person test the waters and show what they can do ... and they're likely to be approached by a friendly team for next time.
The only minor issue I can foresee is there would need to be a limit for prizes so 300 Spartans can't show up and ask for an ATS tee. It might seem
backwards to allow solo teams in an event to encourage interaction, but I think in the long term the result will be more teams and more involvement.
