Set Minimum Security to a Custom Friends Group

Title
Set Minimum Security to a Custom Friends Group

Short, concise description of the idea
Users should be able to set the minimum security for future entries to a custom friends group.

Full description of the idea
Currently, users can only set the minimum security level for future entries (http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=120) to Public, Friends Only, or Private. The Manage Settings page (http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/) should include an option to set the minimum future security to any custom friends group, such as "Default View."

An ordered list of benefits
  • Increased flexibility for posting
  • Natural extension of custom friends groups
  • Should be relatively simple to implement
  • Users with "Friends Only" journals can set their minimum security to their "Default View," effectively allowing them a more public-like journal without impacting their reading list
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Implementation time
  • Added bloat to the Manage Settings page
  • Potential confusion for users
  • Not useful for people who don't set a minimum security level or use custom friends groups
