XF 1.1 How do I set it so that users get alerts on threads they've posted on?

I see on other Xenforo forums, that when I post on a thread, I always get an alert when someone else post on the same thread. On my own xenforo forum, how can I set it so the default for all my users is the same?

UPDATE xf_user_option
SET default_watch_state = 'watch_no_email'

You can set the default for new registrations in your:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> User Registration -> Default Registration Values

And here is a query if you want to retroactively watch all existing threads:
