The fundraiser for money has been working exceedingly well with our
number of donors increasing 10 fold since 2008. What we need now is a
fundraiser for editors. I meet well educated professionals who use
Wikipedia but have no ideas that they can edit it. We need to run a
banner with the same energy we use to raise money to raise editor
numbers. This idea has been trialed to a limited extent here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Invitation_to_edit but the
effort did not have sufficient data crunching behind it to determine
if it works.
