Move "join community" link.

Title
Move "join community" link.

Short, concise description of the idea
Move the "join/leave community" links on the community userinfo down to the bottom, just above where the "memories" link is located.

Full description of the idea
A lot of communities post their rules in their userinfos, but, often, people tend to just click the "join community" button at the top of the page without even reading past the second sentence of the userinfo.

My suggeted solution is to move the join/leave community links further down, towards the bottom of the page, so that new members are forced to at least view (and hopefully read) the userinfo before joining the community.

An ordered list of benefits
  • forces people to view the userinfo before joining the community, which is good since most communities keep their rules in the userinfo
  • will reduce number of posts against the rules where people's excuse for the post is "they didn't know" about the rule (ie didn't read it)

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • the joining link could be difficult to find, depending on its placement

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • it could be set up just like the memories, pictures, interests, etc. on the top of that list (but for communities only, obviously) with a bolded header of "members" and then links for "join" or "leave"
