Inactive Communities

Inactive Communities

Short, concise description of the idea
Are inactive communities purged from LJ system?

Full description of the idea
Since only 500 communities are listed per intrest search:
I have noticed that there are commuities that are made and never updated. Or, there are comms that haven't been updated in close to a year. Is there a way to purge inactive comms say within a year if they have never been updated, with a notification going out to the owners of these comms?

An ordered list of benefits
  • It would help new communities get their names in the intests list that are new, and could possibly thrive better.
  • So when a person types in an interst in the find box, they won't just see a few communities that are updated daily and a vast amount that have not been updated in almost a year, to never updated.
  • The newer comms won't get completley overlooked and die a slow death becaise they aren't old enough to be listed.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I really don't see any draw backs to this, I have been a part of other boards, and communities off LJ that have done this, but they send out a "city wide" message letting people know that they are getting ready to purge, so if they don't want the community gone, they need to have action on it.
