Increase number of allowed friends filters
Short, concise description of the idea
Currently each user has a maximum of thirty allowed "friends groups." This number should be increased.
Full description of the idea
I propose that this number be increased on a hierarchical basis. For example, free users could remain at thirty, paid users could have fifty, and permanent accounts could have some number above that.
An ordered list of benefits
Generally, this would allow for increased flexibility in the use of filters. As different users use them in different ways, this may be a service some of those users would be willing to pay for. Some more specific possible uses include:
... allowing users with large friends lists to have a larger number of subgroups than is currently possible.
... allowing users to use friends filters to communicate with individuals more easily by allowing people to have more individual groups on their lists than is currently possible.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
Possible disk space issue.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
I'm not a programmer, but I'm making the assumption that this would be fairly easy to implement. It may only be a matter of changing a few lines of code.
Depending on how the current "friends list" becomes divided into the journals you read and the users who are allowed to read friends-only entries, this may or may not be relevant subsequently. My recommendation would be to implement it as a part of the change.
