We have created a new type of email called DEV Digest, which will help inform folks about some of the more interesting things happening on-platform based on the tags they follow. It's more for the casual dev.to reader than the folks who come back daily on their own. Feel free to turn off this email in your settings.
This email will go out "every so often" depending on how each individual member takes to it. Basically, we use an exponential backoff algorithm to send it less often if people have indicated through their actions that they aren't all that into it.
It will serve to catch folks up on things they might have missed since the last instance of the email. People like to stay up to date in a variety of ways, and this should serve a big segment of the community who lean on email.
Mac was primarily in charge of this feature and did a great job building all of the complicated logic that this sort of thing requires.
