    Description

      Can we have  configurable defaults for announcement forums like we have for normal forums?

      E.g.

      Announcement forums have forced subscription by default. It can be annoying for users with non-editing rights to receive mails from courses they have passed/not taking in the current semester

      Another can be attachment count is 1 by default for announcement forums and we have seen in our system that announcements when carrying attachments need to have more than 1.
