From MoodleDocs
  • This allows a user to be subscribed initially to forums
  • A user with this capability will receive notification emails from force-subscribed forums
  • This capability is allowed for default teacher, non-editing teacher and student roles
  • This capability is not set for default admin, course creator, Manager (2.0) roles so they don't receive unwanted forum subscription emails (i.e. emails from every forum that has forced-subscription). If this is set for any role that is used at system level (e.g. admin, course creators, Managers), assigning users to these roles will take a long time because users will be subscribed in forums in all courses.
