Set reply notification to Instant automatically?

Is there a way to make the "Thread subscription" option at the bottom of a post default to "Instant email notification"? I prefer to know immediately when a thread has a new post.
EDIT: ...and I forgot to set it to instant again...

In your control panel, go to Edit Options, there's a drop down menu:
Default Thread Subscription Mode
1. Click My LQ
2. Edit Options on the right hand side
3. Scroll a bit down and you'll see it.

Thanks! I guess I should've looked harder, I was on that page earlier and missed it *sigh*.
