Custom "currents" per community

Title
Custom "currents" per community

Short, concise description of the idea
Instead of simply "music" and "mood", replace it in the client with a variable that the community's moderator feels is relevant to their targeted group. For example, "Calories" for a weight-loss group or "Movie" for film discussion communities.

Full description of the idea
My idea would be that when you specify in your LJ client which journal you wish to post in, its "Currents" (Music, Mood, etc.) would change with it to something specific to that community. This wouldn't prove to be extremely useful, but I feel it would give it a more custom feel when creating a community. Say, for example, in my community the poster could have the option to post their computer specifications or their case model. This would save a lot of needless space in the post where they would have to explain all of this information, so they could just get to the point with what they're telling.

An ordered list of benefits

  • The ability to express important information upfront in any post.
  • Customization of a community gives it a more personal feel.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • The idea of custom "currents" has been thrown around before, but never for this reason (to my knowledge)
  • Clients would have to be updated to make these real-time changes as the current journal to be posted in is changed.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • LJ would have to feature the ability for a community's moderator to customize their community's "currents".
  • Clients would have to be updated to make these real-time changes as the current journal to be posted in is changed.
