Add Communities To Filters When Joining

Add Communities To Filters When Joining

Short, concise description of the idea
When join/adding communities as friends, add the same "add this user to your custom groups" dialogue that appears when simply friending them.

Full description of the idea
At present, when we join/friend communities, we do not get the same options as when we simply friend them to add them to our custom filters. That has to be done in a separate step. This is inconvenient, and where people have custom default views and forget this step, it can actively interfere with the user's participation in the community they've just joined.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Ease for the user by eliminating a step in the process of adding the community to filters.
  • Possibly slightly lower strain on the servers (fewer page loads in the process).
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • I can't see any real problems with this.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • It would be necessary to combine the existing coding for the Join/Add Community and the Add Friend dialogues. Possibly some conditional statements in the script to accommodate users who wanted to join the community without adding it to the friends list, but it seems to me that that's probably already covered by the script in the existing dialogue.
