Limited memberships to "official" LJ communities

Limited memberships to "official" LJ communities

Short, concise description of the idea
Limiting the communities that official LJ communites such as suggestions, lj_biz, and others could be members of to other official or very similar communities would maintain the officialness of such communities.

Full description of the idea
Browsing through several of the "official" LJ communities, it appeared that the communities were members of other, much less official communities. For example, "lj_biz" is a member of "fuckfest" and "smalltits" neither of which make sense to me. Similarly, "suggestions" is a member of "lry".

An ordered list of benefits

  • Keep official communities official
  • Prevent image of sponsorship of any particular communities or ideas by LiveJournal
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Seen as imposing censorship?
  • Difficult to define official communities from unofficial communities posing as official
  • Enforcement
  • which communities are ok to be a member of?
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Go through and remove whatever communities are agreed upon as extraneous
  • Set forth a written or understood policy for future reference
