How to Join a Community in LiveJournal

A community in LiveJournal is a group of members who post about a theme or topic of common interest – this is a great way to link up with like-minded people, and share your own opinions and ideas. Join a community in LiveJournal in order to read comments and entries posted by community members, and make community-wide posts of your own.

    Click the “To join this community, click here” link at the top of the community’s info page. One possibility is that you will open a page letting you join right away; in that case you will instantly have access to the privileges of the community. You may, however, have to be approved by the community maintainer, delaying your access until they’ve had a chance to approve you.
