           Summary: Topic subscription defaults wrong in forum
           Product: Websites
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All

            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Normal

Description of problem:
When replying to a forum post I expect to be automatically subscribed to that
topic in order to get a topic reply notification by email.

At present the forum appears to be set up to *not* send email notification
unless the subscription link is clicked.

What is very confusing is that the subscription link looks like a check box
that is *already* checked to enable subscription to the topic.

This bound to confuse users - it has me!

Can we :-
1. Change the default to always send topic reply notifications.
2. Change the icon to not give the impression that notification is already

Without this the forum will be dead IMHO.
