      Description

      mod/forum/view.php When an admin is viewing a forum, s/he normally has the option to change the subscription mode to "Everyone can choose to be subscribed" or "Everyone is subscribed to this forum". This action link actually describes the current state of the forum. Despite the presence of a tooltip and a help window, this UI item is not intuitive: an <change state> element should never be labelled as a <current state> element. A more accessible and usable implementation would be:

      This forum currently <current state>
      Switch to <change state>
