    Use of tense after the verb "suggest"

    "In your articles, you have suggested others to add more to the list..." Is it grammatically correct that a to-infinitive is used after "suggest"?

    I would say this is incorrect.

    "In your articles, you have suggested (that) others add more to the list..."
