So my general idea is that there are many people using and editing MMA pages on wikipedia that may not know about WP:MMA. I'm going to be keeping an eye on this page to find new people editing MMA pages - then I'll be placing the following message on their talk pages:


August[edit]

Hello,

I noticed you edited a page related to Mixed Martial Arts in [month], but you haven't listed yourself as a Participant on the Wikiproject for Mixed Martial Arts pages. I've decided to try to drum up interest to get more people involved!

Please join in and assist!

Don't forget to add {{User_WikiProject_Mixed_Martial_Arts}} to your page.
