Flash User Icons

Flash User Icons

Short, concise description of the idea
Flash is everywhere on the internet and forums and messageboards allow it for their user pictures, so why not LJ?

Full description of the idea
As much as it's nice to be able to have animated GIFs for our user pictures, I'd personally like to be able to make small flash animations to use as my user picture. It'll look better than the animated gif and give users the option to make their LJ look even better.

An ordered list of benefits

  • It'll give users the chance to make their LJ look better.
  • It would be a nice feature for paid users (as an incentive).
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • There would have to be a sensible limit to the size of the .swf movies
  • The dimensions of the movie could be enforced automatically knowing that it was a flash movie.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Adding a further extention allowed as uploadable for the user pic.
  • Storing the flash animations just the same as the current userpics.
