I see what you're saying, and for active members who don't come to the forum very often, it's a great idea. We could mention news tidbits like the upcoming Jeopardy matches with IBM's Watson or upcoming challenges.
But I think we started talking about such things as a way to reach out to inactive members. If they're inactive though, what are the odds that having a subscription link here on the forum will be effective in reaching those people? I don't know. Maybe a lot of them are still active on TPU and just not interested in BOINC or WCG. I can see how that would be possible but I just don't know if that's a realistic expectation. There probably isn't any harm in giving it a shot, but like I said, that's really CP's call as team captain.
