Can I stop JIRA making me a watcher of every issue I create/edit?

We have just installed JIRA 6.1.7.

This version automatically sets the creator and editor of any issue as a 'Watcher'.

We do not want this to happen.

Can you please tell me how to disable it?

Many thanks, Lesley

Look in your user profile for "autowatch" and turn it off. Consider doing the same in the default user profile.

Thank you :) - knew it had to be somewhere
