Spam the carp out of it and all the people in the group will be like, "WUT?" but the thing you do need to make sure of is to spam with comments worth reading like a batch of controversial questions or asking for good techniques or whatever. Just make sure you just don't spam with "LOL" "Trolling" and stuff like that.

ok first up, if a group is sleeping, ie dormant, I'd say just about anyone associated with it has left and forgotten to tell anyone. "trying" to revive it might be a waste of effort on your part.

however, all groups go through lulls, because in the end we have other stuff going on elsewhere.

My advice would be to just find something relevant to add to any open conversations. As was pointed out before trolling wouldn't do you or the group any favours, but a few thoughtful comments not only makes it look like "someone" is still interested in the group, but might elicit replies of a similar level of reflection.

start a challenge or competition, or ask if anyone is willing to participate and has any ideas for one. BUT PLEASE CHECK THE GROUP RULES FIRST. A couple of groups I'm in do not allow members to add conversations, moderators lock them to avoid the group getting crowded by off topic discussions.

I'm glad you didn't just post a link to the group in question, as to be honest most people would have seen that as spam and asked for the discussion to be locked.

I had a sleeping group :)

I revived it by inviting a TON of people. Then we started a RPG in the group :)

I'm so happy that I am the creator of a pretty popular group :)

I hope you have good luck with yours :)

In one of my groups (it never died but it's still going) I create 'group challenges' every month. Each one is like a contest without a winner and each will have restrictions e.g, size limits or colour restrictions. This way builders improve their skills and the group is kept alive.

That sounds pretty fun. That's a great idea.
