I can't find the setting to sign me up for replies to my posts by default - is there one?

Hi, and to SCF.

If you initiate a thread, or post a response to someone else, it displays in MY SCF. Links at top..
If you want to follow a thread without response, click on the link above that says topic subscription.

<edit> There are lots of good threads here about scanning images
and using tongs and not fingers so do use the search feature too. :)

Only that there are lots and lots of good threads
of information for new stamp collectors here.
You said you were new to collecting. Most of us
newbies don't think about handling the stamps with our fingers,
and it is a serious issue to collectors.
My concern was actually the in quality of the scans you had posted being hard to see. There is good info about that as well.

Hi Taylor, welcome.

As far as I know there is no default setting (good idea though).

Subscribe as bfranton says or also when you Reply to a Topic using the link at the top instead of the quick reply option at bottom, there cpmes up an edit window and at the bottom of that there is a box to check to subscribe to thread or topic also.

Yesterday I went to another one of those local auctions held
in a neighbouring small town Community Hall but this one didn't just have the usual old furniture,
plates, prints, porcelain ware, Elvis memorabilia etc,etc but also stamps & coins.
There was a large table with about 25 WW albums, stock books and
a couple of country albums (France & Germany) nothing
spectacular for sure.
Four of the stock books had Russian/Soviet stamps and one had
a good selection of early Russian which was the only item
that had any interest for me.
Well to get to the point.
There where at least a dozen people (collectors ?) milling around the table checking things out including a woman who spent quite some time going over the Russian stuff and kept on pulling out stamp after stamp with her FINGERS.
OK she had long nails but really ???
Every time she pulled out another one I started to cringe and a few
times I was really tempted to tell her "Hey you're ruining the stamps
which someone else (me maybe) wants " but I said nothing.
Anyway I needn't have worried. SHE won all four Russian ones and
a couple of others too.
