Remove community viewing options that don't make sense.

Remove community viewing options that don't make sense.

Short, concise description of the idea
When I'm viewing [http://www.livejournal.com/manage/settings/] as a community, there are several viewing options that don't seem to relate to communities. Why are they there? Should they be removed?

Full description of the idea
Show contextual hover menu-- isn't this only set on a user-by-user basis?

Show LJ Talk online status-- can a community be online and receive messages?

Receive email copies of LiveJournal news and updates-- if this was checked, would the maintainer be getting copies twice? What if there are co-maintainers?

Use image placeholders / Use placeholders for video content / View comment pages in your own journal style-- would any of these settings apply to the entire community if they were selected?

An ordered list of benefits
  • Viewing Options page would be streamlined.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Someone would have to change the programming to remove all of the extraneous stuff.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Look over the Viewing Options as they pertain to communities.
  • Decide which ones are actually meaningful and useful to communities, and which only really affect individual users.
  • Code things to get rid of the extraneous / moot options.
