Change default user pic for phone posts

Change default user pic for phone posts

Short, concise description of the idea
Easily change the default userpic when making phone posts.

Full description of the idea
Under the post-by-email settings is an option to select a userpic to use by default. That is, anything that comes in from the email gateway will use that userpic unless told otherwise.

Last I knew, a similar feature exists for post-by-phone (at least I remember it being mentioned when the feature was first introduced). However, it is not an option within the settings page for it. It involves giving the userpic in question a special name, one which I can't remember and does not seem to be mentioned in the FAQ anywhere.

My suggestion, therefore, is to add an option under post-by-phone settings that does the same thing as the post-by-email setting for the default userpic.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Easier to select the default post-by-phone userpic for those who wish to use it.
  • Make more people aware that the option even exists.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I'm sure I'm missing something simple with this, but I can't think of anything wrong with it.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Minor modification to the post-by-phone code.
  • Changes to FAQ and documentation.
