Recycle Codes

Recycle Codes

Short, concise description of the idea
If you decide a community you have is useless, you can delete it and get the code back.

Full description of the idea
I posted about LiveJournal on a site I belong to, called photoSIG. It is a huge site for photographers. Many of them are interested in joining LiveJournal, and I simply don't have enough codes to invite them all. (They had 1000 people log on in the past 24 hours, 654 photos posted, over 4,000 critiques posted, 270 message posted. It's a large site.) Not everyone wants to jump into something new and paying for it right off the bat -- what can I possibly do? Even the owner of photoSIG wanted a code, thankfully I had one. I also have a community or two that I could stand to delete, they aren't really getting any traffic. This would give me a couple of more codes to give out to other people if I could get the code back if I delete the community.

An ordered list of benefits

  • More people could join LJ without thinking badly because there is no free trial period, and it is invite only (this is generating a LOT of negative word of mouth).
  • Journals that are taking up space can be deleted, this encourages people to get rid of dead wood. I know people with a few journals, they keep changing the names and such, if people had a benefit of getting rid of them they might do it.
  • These extra people joining LJ might actually become paid members, generating more revenue. (Some of these photographers have MONEY. You have any idea what some of these lenses cost?)
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • There would be more people joining LiveJournal as free users, straining resources.
  • There would have to be some way of generating the codes for recycling a community or journal.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Decide if it makes good business sense to broaden the horizon for a more public group of people (these people arent really 'friends' of mine, I'm just trying to help out a different community), and then find some way to generate a code for every journal you recycle.
