Names Shared With Temple
I've done a lot of research and have about 1500 names give or take shared with the temple. Most of them are on lines related to Utah pioneers (not famous ones), and so there are a lot of church members who are connected to these people.
However, I have found that a lot of the names (I would say about half) that I share end up being done on temple lists at my local temple (I live in Utah, so, you know, temples have a lot of business). With the new 300 person reservation limit, I want to make sure that other relatives (as opposed to the temple system) have the opportunity to do the ordinances (because I know there is no way in heck that I'm going to get them done myself). I know there isn't a way to do that right now, but are there any workarounds that I could use to make it less likely that any given name ends up in the temple system?
Also, am I correct in assuming that names shared with the temple don't count on your ordinance total?
There is a new feature you may want to check out,\ called 'Family Group'. Look at the article below, and the related articles listed at the bottom.
Good luck in creating a group.1

When you look at your reservation list you will see that for one individual their individual ordinances: B,C,I,E,SP are on one row. If you also have reserved the SS for that person, it resides on a 2nd row. You are now able to have 300 rows (not persons) in your "My Reservations" list. The Shared with temple list has no limits.1

Just in passing ...
Short Answers: ('Workarounds') Unfortunately, NONE that I know of; and, ('Share') NO Limit.
Like you, I would love to know/'hear' about any 'Workarounds' too ...
As, to "Share with the Temple System", NO there does not appears to be any LIMIT.
[ And, those "Share[d] with the Temple System", do not count for one's NORMAL "Reservation" Lists ]
[ ie. either, the 2 Year Period; and/or, the 90 Days Period ... ]
That Said ...
Here is a Article in the 'FamilySearch' "Blog":

Reservations limited to 300: WHY? More participation: HOW?
I know that this does not help/assist.
Good. I've noticed that names that I unreserve just... sit there without anything actually getting done. Thx for the clarification.0
I mean that when I share w/ temple names get done as opposed to just sitting stagnant when I unreserve.0
I've seen that, hopefullu I can figure something out there.0
