Changeable User Tag Icons

Changeable User Tag Icons

Short, concise description of the idea
Give users the ability to change the default user tag icon throughout LJ so that whenever someone sites moskevyu , it actually looks like userinfoaxey.

Full description of the idea
Instead of being limited to moskevyu, users could alter their settings within the Info interface or in the Customize pages so that they appear as userinfoaxey, or use any other appropriately sized and formatted icon. Users could use a variety that LJ has designated, or they could upload their own images into their galleries and link to those.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allows users to jazz up their online IDs an extra enth.
  • Allows users to compliment their LJ icons and LJ themes with similarly-themed mini icons.
  • Gives users a small extra difference in tag lists for meme posts and whatnot where several users are linked to and they all look like moskevyu.
  • The ability to import their own LJ tag icons could be used as an extra incentive for users to purchase paid LJ accounts.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • LJ will need to devote a small amount of storage space for icons that it offers to users.
  • Users may be confused as to which graphic formats are good for this purpose. Users will want the option of using either small static icons or small animated ones.
  • Users will need size restrictions, otherwise user tag icons may get big enough to disrupt an LJ author's intended format for an LJ post.
  • Format restrictions may be necessary to keep users from being able to sneak malware in under this option.
  • Some users may be tempted to use this option for icons that are inappropriate for younger audiences.
  • Author is not familiar enough with the way LJ is constructed to see actual code or implementation problems with adding the option for users.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • This option could be implemented in the admin console.
  • It could be implemented in the user management menus relating to LJ themes or LJ user pics.
  • It might also be implemented in the same manner that applies to customizable mood themes.
