When you have created a contest, you get a link to allow people joining it . If someone clicks on this link, he or she should be able to join the contest.
Other solution to use foldit on your own research :If you are an academic you can download the standalone version of Foldit here: http://depts.washington.edu/uwc4c/express-licenses/assets/foldit/ Rosetta can only read PDB files that start with ATOM so if you tried loading in a PDB from the RCSB the Foldit standalone will probably have crashed. Just only keep the ATOM lines and then try loading that in!
