Announcing: a new plugin for selfie advatars

Have you ever wanted to have a collection of profile pictures and be able to easily change your profile advatars?   Well now you can do it … just type this plugin command anywhere in your thought and all of the pictures in that thought will inherit a button … click the button and that will be your avatar.
 


 
Caution:  Make the thought private … or anyone who click it will get your avatar.

it just dawned on me that we could collect a selection of generic avatars for antonymous geeks to choose from.

In general yes … but plugins won’t work on the cartoon maker you know. It is not a thinking.domain thought … it’s just a regular web page.

i wasn’t even thinking of the cartoon maker.   just a though, probably in this group … go there and choose your avatar … for people too lazy to take their own picture.  

incidenally, i’ve noticed that gif or png images with transparent backgrounds show up the best for advatars.

Yes. For security on the image api I prevent serving images through it that are not in /media … I suppose I could allow the emotions through though … they are safe.

Yes you can. Mine tigger avatar is in the wild.
This is for local url’s on our server. We don’t want people to be able to use the image api to serve back just any old thing from any place. If it did, it could even be used to examine our source code.
