New LJ User Tag Functionality

weather: slight showers
outside: 9°C
mood: amused
Gotta try out all the cool LJ toys. =) I read it this morning from lj_nifty and pne. <lj user="..."> will now automagically detect the type of user and display the LJ User entity accordingly. <lj comm="..."> works the same way for backward compatibility.

<lj user="bride"> : bride
<lj user="weddingplans"> : weddingplans
<lj user="timbray"> : timbray
<lj user="news"> : news
<lj user="diannaandbill"> : diannaandbill
<lj user="planetjanine"> : janinedog

<lj comm="bride"> : bride
<lj comm="weddingplans"> : weddingplans

Of course, this takes away a lot of the customizability from control freaks (like me) who must have everything just so. What if I suddenly feel like representing myself with a community icon to demonstrate that I am a harmony of the many voices inside the one? What if I want to use the "syndication" icon to make a white-glove-slapping remark about someone being a loudmouth? What if that "news" icon is just so cute that I want to use it for more than just the LJ News community? =)

In those cases, I'd just use allah_sulu's ljl33t tool to create my own LJ entity.

Every time I think I might be the biggest LJ nerd on the block, I read your journal and take comfort; so long as you exist, I will forever evade that scarlet letter. ;)

sigh, i don't really like the 'renames follow' part...perhaps as a renamer i would, but right now i'd like to see all the renames a person has had! hehe. although i occasionally get confused
