Offsite userpics

Title
Offsite userpics

Short, concise description of the idea
Let users use userpics uploaded to an offsite photo host, rather than upload the offsite picture to the journal's space.

Full description of the idea
Let users use userpics uploaded to an offsite photo host, rather than upload the offsite picture to the journal's space.

An ordered list of benefits
  • With this method, you could allow users more userpics without using up Livejournal's disk space or bandwidth (that is why sites like flickr and photobucket were created in the first place)
  • For those with the know how, this could also allow users to create a link to an offsite picture that changes with each page refresh.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I don't see how this would cause any problems.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Just change the upload box to add the picture's link to the userpic list rather than uploading it the user's disk space.
