I approve!
I was playing around with my user pics and apparently all my postings that had my other pics have all been switched to my default. Not that there's anything really wrong with that. I like my default pic. It's why I have it as my default. Erica looks so adorable yet slightly dorky and I love the look of joy she has on her face which is exactly what I want to convey but I like my Nick and Nat one too and that one gets a lot of use.

I knew there was a chance they would switch but I thought I was in the clear. All I was doing was redefining keywords without actually changing pics. Oh well. I'll change back the pics on my journal but it looks like my postings on other journals will be stuck on default.

I've seen the first two episodes of New Amsterdam on Fox and gotta say that I'm enjoying it. His constant references to his partner that hint to his age are a bit on the annoying side but so far that's the only that irks me. His been a history teacher (like Nick in "Spin Doctors") and apparently he was a Civil War doctor (like Nick in "Unreality TV") as well. And then of course there's the homicide cop angle. Oddly enough rather than feeling like they're ripping off Forever Knight I enjoy seeing New Amsterdam explore similar veins.

Someone seriously needs to write a crossover fic. Nick spent time in NYC during the 1960s. He and Amsterdam should totally cross paths.

I believe the way it works is that the keywords must remain exactly the same, but the pics can change. That is, you can load new pics and name them with your old keywords, and the old posts will pick them up because they are anchored to the keyword. But changing keywords breaks the links. Try loading your old N&N pic with the same keyword it had before, and see if your old posts pick it up? So you would be able to load a new N&N pic with the old keyword, and it would replace the old N&N pic wherever you used it, too.

(wiliqueen advised me early on to use generic keywords, so I could replace pics later if I wanted.)

You might be interested in amaka's post about New Amsterdam, which took offered the interpretation that the character's "hints" are instead an almost compulsive truth-telling, perhaps linked to his recovery from alcoholism. ~shrug~ Your mileage may vary.

Ah I see. Thanks! My N&N pic was a tad bit on the dark side so I tried uploading a lighter version with the same keywords and it worked. Good advice from wiliqueen.

Oh now that's an interesting interpretation. I'll be sure to drop by and read her take on it. Thanks for the heads up. I seem to recall visiting her journal a bit when I first hoped on livejournal.
