Confirmation Page for Adding Popular Feeds

Confirmation Page for Adding Popular Feeds

Short, concise description of the idea
When adding popular feeds to your friend page, a confirmation page should appear.

Full description of the idea
Currently, when adding popular feeds to your friends list from http://www.livejournal.com/syn/ they are added to the friends list and to the Default View (if applicable) in default colors. There should be a confirmation page that will allow you to confirm the added feeds as well as select friends list colors and which friends groups the feed will belong to.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Unwanted feeds carelessly clicked will not be added to the friends list.
  • Many users have specific friends groups used for syndicated feeds. They will be able to add popular feeds to those groups in one step.
  • Users will not have to take the separate step of changing a feed's colors after adding it to their friends list.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • One more mouse-click for users who would only want the default settings

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • A similar confirmation page is already in use when adding users or communities to the friends page from a user info page or when adding a syndicated feed by name or address. The same page could be used here.
