    Hi there,
    what is the best way to invite users to participate to a thread?
    Is there a way to invite a number of people at the same time to save time?

    The forum currently doesn’t have such a thread invite feature.

    Once you have a post count of 100, you can PM up to 5 members at once.

    This limit is still low to ensure the PM is specifically relevant to each person receiving it.

    In the forum context, it's important that each thread's subject is clear, accurate, and descriptive. Then when each member visits, it's easy to see which new threads are of interest and within the realm of knowledge one can contribute to.

    If there are one or two existing threads that are closely related to a new thread (but where the new thread is still distinct, warranting a separate thread), a note about the new thread can be posted in the related thread so those subscribed to it get a notification automatically with a thread update email.

    Thank you, I understand the reasoning behind that.
