Thank you, mikey. I guess I don't know what the BOINC authors mean by 'Community.' There is the BOINC Community and there is the Rosetta (in this case)Community.
I really want the default should be for 'immediate email notification' as I can protect myself from almost anything except too much protection. :^) Optimistically yours, Stepo
P.s. What does the 'Subscribe' button do in this Forum?

I have been through considerable pain because I was not notified of the arrival of an important hoped for but unexpected personal message. I quit my TEAM because of this. I knew perfectly well that it was optional whether to
receive notification of personal messages and I was sure that I had opted in to that. Now I have discovered that 'default' is no notification. Perhaps for TEAM PLAYERS default could be 'notification' which then could OPTIONALLY be switched off? I have rejoined my TEAM. Also - now I have to figure out whether so-called 'community' preferences affect all projects or must be set for EACH project.
Also - I am rather helpless at Bulletin Board Forums and there is a good chance that if anyone replies to this note I may not be able to find said reply. I'm just throwing out this suggestion on behalf of tentative or newbie type team member users of which I am a perennial. Optimistically yours, Stepo
