      Description

      In the "Forum defaults" admin screen (Site administration → Plugins → Activity modules → Forum), there's no setting for "Subscription mode", hence, the forum setting form defaults to 'Optional subscription' as the first choice option for 'Subscriptions'. Maybe in some cases there's the need to have a different default. I personally would prefer 'Auto subscription'.

      Being able to specify the default value for newly created forums would be a useful feature.
