Unmark "receive information" by default on user creation #3316
This is a Feature Proposal
For those participants that don't tick the newsletter checkbox, now that it is a default option, I strongly suggest we add a modal when pushing the regitration button saying:
"Are you sure you don't want to receive a newsletter? Please consider again ticking the newsletter checkbox below, it is very important for us that you can receive occasional emails to make important announcements, you can always change this on your preferences [link to preferences] in the future. If you don't tick the box you might be missing relevant information about new participatory opportunities within the platform. If you still want to avoid receiving newsletter we perfectly understand you option and we shall always respect it. Thanks!"
Under this modal the checkbox should appear again.
