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

#1
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?

I think you want the default watch state preference. That's a user preference:

You can run this query to set those two checkboxes for all current users:

Code:
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:
