Swap out userpics

Swap out userpics

Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to replace a current userpic with a new userpic, rather than deleting and uploading a new picture

Full description of the idea
The ability to upload and "overwrite" a current userpic. This would associate any previous posts that used the old userpic with the new userpic, rather than resetting the posts to the 'default' userpic.

An ordered list of benefits
  • It would allow a user to update a userpic that was no longer content-appropriate, without having to manually return to all previous posts and edit each one to use the newer userpic.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • There may need to be some sort of consistent naming conventions to allow new userpics to overwrite old ones.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • The Manage Userpics page might need new option to select a userpic to over-write with the new file.
  • An "Are You Sure" warning for overwrite would be a good idea.
