Full description of the idea
The news and lj_maintenance communities should automatically be added to a user's Friends list when s/he first create his/her account here at LiveJournal.

An ordered list of benefits

  • This will really help people know what's going on with the site -- I know I didn't find out about news and lj_maintenance until I was using LiveJournal for a year or so.
  • Getting information directly from the source is better than things getting twisted around and stuff.
  • World peace.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Automatic adding of friends isn't something people may like.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I think DeadJournal does this already, no? I don't know exactly what needs to be done, though; I don't know the code well enough.
  • Tags: community membership, new users, site news, § implemented
