I received a confirmation email. Does that mean I've been chosen to host?

No. Every person who registers with Ripple Street (meaning they sign up for Ripple Street using a member name and password or using Facebook, Twitter or Google) receives a confirmation email as part of their registration process. This helps us to verify your email address and for security purposes to make sure you're...well...YOU!

A confirmation email is also sent after you complete each House Party or Chatterbox event application. 

These are just courtesies to let you know we received your information. However, neither of these are host notifications of selection.

You can control your email preferences by going to your "Settings" (available in the top-level navigation of the site at all times), then scrolling down to the section entitled "Email Newsletters".
