Watch/Unwatch link on News navigation strip and profile

Watch/Unwatch link on News navigation strip and profile

Short, concise description of the idea
Other communities have 'watch this community' and 'stop watching this community' links on the navigation strip. News does not. It should have one there and perhaps on the profile as well.

Full description of the idea
News is automatically added to the Friends list of new users. Some see it there and would like to remove it, but don't know how because they are not yet familiar with the appropriate profile button. Clearly labeled links on the navigation strip and profile would be helpful to them.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Less confusion for new users
  • The navigation strip watch/unwatch links would be consistent with those for other communities, making things simpler for those who are accustomed to using those links.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I assume this was removed along with intentionally removing the 'join' link. It might not be easy to remove the join link while allowing the watch link.
  • With the labeled profile link, people might think they can't remove other friends because those friends don't have that link.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • tickeh.
