It would be convenient if there was a online program you could instantly edit existing mood icons with.
Full description of the idea
I'm not sure where I encountered an existing program like this -- maybe on Angelfire or some other easy-to-use website builder -- but instead of taking a lot of time to make your own set, wouldn't it be convenient to have a simple paint program online where you can edit existing icons and save them to your account?
There are, of course, some minor technicalities. This feature might be limited to paying users, as an online program would take some time to make. Custom moodsets would probably also have to be limited in order not to take too much space on the server. If each person got one set of .gifs they could alter at their will (including mood captions), it would probably be more than enough.
I think the benefits far outweigh the possible problems. For one thing, it would give members a better opportunity to create their own simple icons, as some people's computers lack a program with which to edit .gifs. Secondly, it would further diversify the LiveJournal community, which is ideal since every LiveJournal is unique anyway. Finally, it would also give even those that feel themselves "artistically challenged" to have an opportunity to make and express their own artwork, no matter how simple it is.
