Alphabetising option for userpics

Title
Alphabetising option for userpics

Short, concise description of the idea
Currently, there is no option to alphabetise userpics on either the allpics page or the manage userpics page.

Full description of the idea
The only option for ordering userpics right now is upload order. I'd love for there to be an option to order them alphabetically by keyword.

I believe this tends to become more of an issue when a user has more than just the six default icons - there are many userpics to scroll through and no real order to them.

This has been discussed previously (http://community.livejournal.com/suggestions/502655.html) but as far as I can see, nothing came of the suggestion. However, that was a long time ago.

I recognise that this suggestion brought up some issues in 2004, which I'll address under 'problems and issues'.

An ordered list of benefits
  • 1. Better organisation: neater pages. It would be so much easier to find userpics pertaining to the same or similar subjects or made by the same artist.
  • 2. It will be easier to see what userpics have been uploaded for a specific subject if the keywords are orderly.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • 1. As brought up in the previous suggestion, this could pose problems for those who have more than one keyword per userpic. Which keyword would the picture be alphabetised by?
  • 2. It could be time consuming to implement this feature.
