Replace one User Image with a new one

Replace one User Image with a new one

Short, concise description of the idea
Can we have the ability to replace one user image with another? That way we could check a box (like the Delete one) and then select an image to upload to replace it and it would replace the old one on the older entries and comments instead of going to default.

Full description of the idea
The coding that makes entries remember User Images by keywords makes it cumbersome to change icons. It causes a problem if you don't want to have to remember what number you've named the image so that when it's replaced the entries don't loose their themed/fitting icons. Changing an image's keywords also can't be done easily because then any posts or comments you've made go to default. If the coding can be changed to allow users to replace one image with another then that would help people not to have an all defaulted journal if they change images.

The larger question brought up by this: Is there some better way to make posts linked to User Images instead of keywords?

An ordered list of benefits
  • Easier to replace images
  • Don't have to resort to naming User Images with things like #1 or Sad or Happy so that your older entries don't lose their icons
