Quick way to change where an entry is posted.

Quick way to change where an entry is posted.

Short, concise description of the idea
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to change where your journal entry is posted without having to copy it, delete the old entry, and open up a new "Update Journal" page?

Full description of the idea
Accidentally post to your journal instead of nakedparts again? How would you like to be able to just switch the journal that the entry's in instead of having to copy it, delete your original post, and repost it to the right place? I suggest that there be a drop-down box on the "editjournal_do" pages that allows for an entry to simply be switched to another journal. Since you can change the security level in much the same way, as well as your mood or icon, I don't see how this could be too difficult.

An ordered list of benefits

  • People would be less likely to see things that aren't meant for their eyes (be they posts meant for nakedparts or lj_abuse, etc.) ;)
  • Less likely to be commented at for accidentally posting "off topic" posts in community journals.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • A friend brought up the point that if someone were to gain access to your account, they could scatter your entries to community journals. Even now, though, they could just as easily delete them.
  • I'm not sure what could be done if there happened to be a comment to the post you need to move. I imagine it could either be locked to the post, or deleted entirely upon moving the original post.
  • I know that when posting to a community journal, no matter when the date is set, it automatically posts at the top of the community. If someone -were- to gain access to your account and scatter your entries to community journals, I imagine the posts would flood up the communities. But, hey, the same person could just as easily flood a community with a bunch of spam.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I imagine it could be implemented much in the same way as the security level change on the "editjournal_do" pages are.
  • But since I'm not the tech savvy type, feel free to kick me if I'm way off base here. :P
