"Random" User Pic Selection

"Random" User Pic Selection

Short, concise description of the idea
Option for LJ to randomly change your user pic for all posts.

Full description of the idea
For those of us with more than one (if not several) user pics, there should be an option instead of "No Default Picture" or replacing "No Default Picture" that randomly changes our picture, erasing the need for keywords.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Shows an LJ user's variety and creativity in selecting/creating user pictures.
  • Allows lazy/indecicive LJ users to obtain the best of both worlds, by letting them skip the keyword process.
  • Adds color to community LJs, as each user could ideally use a different user pic for each post and/or comment they make.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Allows confused/easily mislead LJ users to rest easily. As a clarification, when I chose "No Default Picture" in the hopes that it would do exactly what I'm suggesting, I recieved several IMs and emails asking me where my user picture had went. If this change is not implimented, then "No Default Picture" should at least have a warning stating that unless a keyword is used, you will not display a user picture.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • To the uneducated LJ user like myself, it seems that merely a change in code would be needed to implement this. I eagerly await for my ignorance to be corrected by any developers who read this.
