Official Geographic communities
Short, concise description of the idea
All new members are automatically subscribed to an official, moderated community that represents their geographic area.
Full description of the idea
The idea is that there will be several geographic communites; say UK, France, Germany, Russia, etc. These would be moderated and would be "opt in" rather than "opt out".
- Would provide a central forum for new livejournallers
Would provide a regional focus(currently LJ still feels very USA centric).
Could be used to build on the new partnership that LJ is undertaking. I currently suspect many of the UK independent readers may already have left or abandonned their journals.
- The communities would need to have heavier moderation as they would be official.
Some people will no doubt object to having to opt out.
