not a beautiful or unique snowflake

Can I just say that the handling of userpics slightly irritates me? One, it turns out other people can see the keywords for your pics. I didn't know that. Fortunately, there's nothing embarassing or awkward in my keywords, because, despite the fact that they're called "keywords" and you can edit them individually, if you edit the keywords for a picture, you'll lose all existing appearances of that picture in your journal. Apparently it stores the full text of the "keywords" in that journal entry/post, so when it no longer matches anything, back to the default. Addendum: maybe this works right if you separate your keywords by commas? I can't remember whether I tried this and it didn't help so I changed them back to avoid breakage, or if I never tried it. Anyone? huskyscotsman? Addendum part 2: All is well. Use commas between them. I think I didn't test it because doing so would have broken all of my existing pictures. Sadness.

I mention all this because a bunch of ifmud have been following in the paid-member-with-lots-of-user-pics route, and I don't want them to make the same mistakes I did back when.
