Organization of Userpics

Organization of Userpics

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow users the ability to re-order their userpics, so they may be viewed in the order they wish as well as the added ability to sort pics by keywords.

Full description of the idea
I admit this idea is mostly for those of us who are anal-retentive. Previously, when 15 icons was all I could have, I was able to work around this by deleting userpics and then uploading them in the order I wish displayed. This is increasingly impractical (as a user pic collection grows). If this option existed it would allow users to sort/display the way they want (for example, by like icons). The code for this already exists, in the form of the links list (renumbering the order). Additionally, the option to display sorted by keyword could be an interesting feature (using a simple text link below the pics that says something to the effect of, "You may also sort and view the userpics by keyword by clicking here").

An ordered list of benefits

  • More control over display of user icons, allowing for the potential of better organization.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Not entirely sure how the display by user pic option would work. Since we're allowed more than one keyword(s) per pic, would the pic be displayed multiple times (once for every keyword associated with the image)? I think it should work this way, but some may not like that.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Idea accepted, integrated, and live code ran.
  • FAQ updated, as appropriate.
