Short, concise description of the idea
Mods should be contacted for permission to feature their communities.

Full description of the idea
While the "LJ Spotlight" is a terrific way to discover new interests and people, when the mod(s) is/are non-existent or is/are no longer around, it gets very taxing with the spambots who are also attracted. In the long run thus causing members to LEAVE rather than join.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Limit spambots (and therefore spyware, malware, and viruses also connected to such issues).
  • Allow mods the power to decline, be able to be around during said feature, or change settings as necessary due to the anticipated flood of members.
  • Keeps LiveJournal a positive experience through proper management all around.
  • Would additionally keeps trolls and troublemakers from getting out of control, in other words limiting reports of personal harassment or inappropriate activity for LJ to have to sort through.
  • Empowering users to make their communities the sort of attractive network opportunity that would keep people interested in LiveJournal versus other Internet social platforms.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Taking the additional step of sending an email TO THE MOD, after a community suggestion, and waiting an assigned amount of time (a week or month perhaps) to get a response.
