Don't prompt to watch an already-watched community
Short, concise description of the idea
When you join a community which you are already watching, you are still given the option to watch it. This is confusing.
Full description of the idea
When you join a community, you are given the following prompt:
Press the button below to join the "Community Name" community. Uncheck the box below if you want to join the community without seeing community entries on your friends page.If you are already watching this community ("watching a community" means it is added to your friends list) then this checkbox does nothing useful* -- unchecking it does not remove the community from your friends list. It should not show when you're already watching the community in question.
Add "Community Name" to friends list.
* It does do something -- it triggers a bug the removes your custom colors for that community -- but that's neither useful nor related to this suggestion.An ordered list of benefits
- Less confusion.
- Less paperwork for the Department of Redundancy Dept.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- Check if the user is already watching the community in question.
- If they are, don't show the checkbox or the part of the prompt related to it.
