This task is about consulting with volunteers from across the Movement to learn what they think of the initial automatic topic subscription experience (T284836 + T262103).
This particular consultation is intended to help us answer the following questions:
1. Do Senior Contributors find it intuitive that they are automatically subscribed to conversations that they: A) Start and/or B) post a new comment in?
2. Are Senior Contributors confident in their understanding of the following?
-- A) The impact automatic subscriptions will have on their on-wiki experience
-- B) What abilities they have to configure how automatic topic subscriptions work
-- C) Where/how they can know whether they are subscribed to a conversation or not.
-- D) What impact checking/unchecking the soon-to-be renamed `Watch this page` checkbox has. //Context: T290712#7353382.//
