Show the Community Maintainer for Open Communities

Title
Show the Community Maintainer for Open Communities

Short, concise description of the idea
Add a link along with the join here link to contact the maintainer.

Full description of the idea
Currently there is no way for the community maintainer of an open community to be identified. However, the maintainer has an important role to fulfill. If there is a problem only the maintainer can ban users or delete entries. Therefore the members of the community need a way to contact the maintainer.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Better run communities.
    Easier identification of responsibility if a maintainer is allowing Terms of Service violations.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Loss of anonymity, but I do not think a maintainer of a community has the right to anonymity about it.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Add the link that already exists for closed communities to open communities, while keeping the join here link.
  • Tags: community maintenance, profile/userinfo, § implemented
