Easier access to joined LJ communities

Easier access to joined LJ communities

Short, concise description of the idea
Is there a better way to access joined communities from the user homepage?

Full description of the idea

I'm having a hard time trying to access my joined LJ communities from my user homepage. It's just that LJ doesn't necessarily categorize them as communities per se since I'm not a mod or creator of the community. Surely there must be a better way to access (or go to) a single/specific community that doesn't require me to go to my friends page and/or to the add/remove friends page? It would be better if the friends and joined communities are separated and a new page/button can be added under the "communities" column from the user homepage sidebar.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Less mouse-clicks, less hassle.
    -You don't need to find the specific community from the add/remove friends page nor load and custom filter out the community from your friends page.

  • More organized.
    -Sometimes it just gets messy & confusing when seeing a combined list of friends and joined communities.
