Tips

  • Send a few invitations on a regular basis.
  • Be patient. Things take time to develop.
  • When publicizing, do not copy and paste multiple messages to Talk pages. This type of advertising is like spamming, in the way that it creates extra work for patrollers, and may lower interest in your project or contest.
  • Invite a few editors that have contributed to similar articles or tasks in the past.
