issue with group formation

#1 by GergelyH

Hi All,

I am working on an experiment where participants interact in groups. I had some issue with group formation. I form groups on arrival and use a wait page as the first page of the app (following the sample code on this topic). For some groups it takes a while to fill up. so it happens that some of the participants probably move away from the computer or does not pay attention while waiting. Then once the group is formed, they do not pay attention and others have to wait a lot (get stuck on some page or if i add timeout, then the person missing will make the group to drop out). 

Is there a good way to solve this? I thought of adding another participant to the group who is waiting and remove the one failing an attention check. But how can I implement this once the group is formed?

Any ideas would be very helpful!
