Community Search Tag Interests

Community Search Tag Interests

Short, concise description of the idea
When a person enters an interest to search for new communities, the community with the most recent updates should show up first.

Full description of the idea
When I search for different interests, I notice that a LOT of old communities that haven't been updated for months (or years) shows up in the list. However, I know of communities that have the same interest tags, but they don't show up at all.

An ordered list of benefits
  • People will be able to find communities that match their specific search interest that are active, not dormant.
  • New communities that are active will attract more members.
  • If the most recently active communities show up in an interest search for every interest tag that is listed in the profile, then this will help to show others that there are communities on LJ that are active.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • The problem with the current tag interest search is that communities with little to no activity for such long periods of time lead people to think there are no active communities with the particular interest they are looking for on LJ.
