Automatically subscribe to bugs I enter

Is it possible to automatically subscribe to bugs that I enter? Here's a scenario:

1. I enter a bug, assign it to Dana.
2. Dana replies by asking me for more details.
3. I never reply since I forgot to subscribe to that bug!

Right now I am only getting a notification when the bug is resolved -- unless I go into the bug and manually subscribe.

In my case, I can't think of any reason why I wouldn't want to subscribe to every bug I enter.

You should use the Assign feature to ask push the bug around like a hot potato.

Basically, you would enter the bug and assign it to Dana (Dana gets a notification.)  When she needs more details, she assigns it to you with a note that says "I need more details". (You get notified).  Then you give more details in the note when you assign it back to Dana.

The editing verb is for making changes to a bug you already "own".
