XF 1.2 Watch threads when creating or replying set to Yes for everyone

After my recent move to XenForo from phpBB3 I randomly checked active members of my site in admin and all of them had set that as No.

All the newly registered members have this set Yes by default.

I wonder how could I change this to Yes to all already registered members?

It requires an SQL query.

Code:
UPDATE xf_user_option SET default_watch_state = 'watch_email'
That will set it to watch thread with email.

Code:
UPDATE xf_user_option SET default_watch_state = 'watch_no_email'
That will set it to watch thread without email.

However, changing existing member options may annoy your members, it would me.

Thanks Brogan, well I see your point, but I had no time to explain my members all the features of XenForo yet. This way they will be notified and I am sure they have the option have to opt out in email.
