LJ user experience grumble... 
30th-Jan-2012 02:47 pm
So, I've been having a very odd problem with LJ's new visual icon selection tool on commenting pages, and a cursory google search doesn't turn up anything specifically about this in the midst of the general (largely justifiable) complaints about the new commenting interface. Basically, about 7 out of 10 comments I make with the new interface end up posting with my default LJ userpic, instead of the one I've carefully selected in the whizzy visual selection tool. This is irritating. I mean, my default icon is generally fine. That's why it's my default. But the other ones would like a chance to play, too.

Is it just me? Is there a fix?

Not just you. I don't know about a fix, though.

Hmm. I haven't had that problem, but I hate that the visual browser apparently lists them in the order I uploaded them, rather than alphabetically by tag. I can't find anything anymore.

Yeah, the display-in-upload-order thing is a fairly rookie user-interaction error: assuming that a means of indexing data that's meaningful to the software is meaningful to the user. (I also have a feeling that they probably didn't do much testing using accounts that have scores of userpics.)
