I wanted to point out a huge difference in the way this system notifies you of new posts, vs the old system.
We heard the feedback on topic notifications. Not only would Gmail (the most popular email client) thread notifications for all topics, but the old system sent out way too many emails. It resulted in posting fatigue.
We have been able to configure the new system to NOT notify you of every new topic. This is, of course, configurable by you to change, both on a Topic (e.g. “Jade Rollers” & Category (e.g. “Talk”) level. If you want to be notified of every new topic, you can certainly change that.
We don’t want to inundate community members with stuff you are not interested in chatting about… we don’t want to try and force participation.
If you are a Co-Creator, we will notify you with a Co-Creator group message on Blogs and To-Dos to so you won’t miss out on a requirement.
