It can be easy for a vibrant, engaged community to exhaust itself chasing a lot of new ideas that never really work out. You should always ask yourself how a new tactic will contribute to the goals of the community, and whether it is, in fact, the best way of advancing them. You also need to ask yourself how to trial the idea and what other things you will have to reallocate time and energy away from in the name of your new project.
