LiveJournal staff and volunteers use many official journals and communities to:
- improve the site and help users
- announce important events, features, and site changes
- improve the site's documentation and text
Some of these communities have open membership so anyone can join and post entries
. Others are communities with closed membership
so only staff or senior volunteers can join and post entries; you may still add them to your Friends list
so you can see new entries on your Friends page.
