guidelines
 - Encourage use of pictures and videos
 - As part of content review: separate "get an idea" and "get excited" from "get involved" (multiple levels of the page?)
 - ask teams to write text for people they know they can get excite
 - also write a paragraph for NEW contributors, also do a video, stress that we are an open project
