I would only recommend reviewing proposals that you're interested in
reviewing. You might end up ranking a proposal that another mentor has
asked a student to clarify or improve. That might give it a lower
score than it ultimately deserves. Think of it as a very slow race

You should be able to turn off email updates on your Profile page. It
took me a while to figure that out too.

I'm not either :) It changes from year to year...
