Finding communities on LJ  
So um there's probably a London community on here, isn't there? Can anyone point me to it? There seems to be only a search function to find people-and-communities, and I can't be arsed wading through pages and pages of users who somehow have something to do with London to find an actual community for it.

Alternatively, if anyone happens to be driving from London to Edinburgh before tomorrow (Sunday) night, you could make me a happy man. But I'll probably just get the coach, realistically.

London in what context? Meet up London? Stay in London? Shop London? Sights London? Tourist London? Londoner London? I love London? I hate London? Central London? North London? South London? Ethnic London? Arts London? Architecture London? Alternative London? Clubbing in London?

There ae loads of London coms, but what are you needing?

I was specifically thinking it might be worth looking to see if anyone was driving to Edinburgh, but I'd be quite happy with pretty much anything. Is there a big list somewhere? How can LJ's search facilities possibly fail so badly on this one?

Cripes, you're right. That is a very, very, astonishingly bad restructuring. DO YOU NOT HAVE EYES, SOFTWARE ENGINEERS????

Ah found the way though - for future reference - http://www.livejournal.com/interests.bml?int=london

Thank you translucent, whoever you are!

That pretty much does it, although there are an awful lot of largely irrelevant communities listing London as an interest! It is a pretty interesting place I guess. To add insult to idiocy, I see there is a community search feature which is only available to paid or 'Plus' users. Maybe *that* is competently done? I wonder!

It looks like lalondontown is *probably* the only active, general-purpose group for Londoners. But who knows?

Ah I'm Sarra, sorry! One forgets!
