Disturbing problem with favorite media

Little did I ask Alex how to highlight the profile photos on the profile. He replied, simple, playing with favorites.

Ok, I did some tests and I found this method finally great at first. But I think in practice we are going to have big problems with this system.

You know that there is everything on the internet, all types of people, good people and people less well, and bad people. I made a screenshot of a case that is likely to appear regularly.

Let us assume that the profile "tester123" clearly shows regrettable ideas on his profile. For illustration, I took an extreme case, but it could be a profile already disturbing only in the description.

Then this person has the possibility to show on his profile the picture of any other member, in this case, the photo of my friend Emma.

Obviously, Emma has visited Tester123's profile and seen her photo in the midst of other foul-smelling photos. Emma then comes to see Admin and tells her she does not agree and asks how she can remove her photo from this place.

Admin must answer, sorry but that is not possible. Emma then asks, but you Admin, you can do it? Admin must answer, no, sorry, I do not know how to do it.

Of course, in a case like this I would delete the profile of tester123 and the problem would be resolved, but there will be more subtle cases, that's for sure. It seems to me that everyone should retain control of his images and be able to choose or beside which they may or may not appear.

Perhaps a method to respond to this situation has escaped me, if so, tell me?

    • If someone wants to post someone's photo in his profile he can open another profile photo save photo on the disk and then upload as their own, and it will look the same as on your screenshot.

      I think that if someone break rules on the site then his profile must banned and deleted. 

      Favourite photos is some alternative way to implement profile photos, but not the best way. We'll create separate module or functionality for profile photos, or maybe it will be some 3rd-party module for this, which will work better then just favourite photos.

      • Yes, and your example demonstrates the problem.

        Somewhere you explain that since in any case it is possible to do it illegally, then as much as the site proposes it in a legal way (Legal? Must still see ...)

        To a photo thief, I can explain to him that what he did is not legal, but in this case, he will answer me, so why does your site offer me to do it?

        I repeat your system is great for all photos, but poorly suited for personal and private photos.

        The problem is that there is no way to distinguish between the two.

        As I said, I took an extreme example, but I'm afraid that nobody will appreciate finding his picture on someone's profile especially on the profile of someone he does not like, whatever the reason.

        Admin can not remove people's profiles simply because they do not appreciate and only for this problem.

        Look at a simple request for friendship, why do you accept it or why do you refuse it? Because there are reasons or not.

        I can refuse a request for friendship, still happy, but not that I publish my head on a profile? Or is the difference, for a third-party visitors, he will think those two are friends because they have their photo side by side.

        I think that's a bigger problem than you think. When something does not like a site, 5% of people will talk to the admin, 95% will delete their account.

        I may have an idea, I do not know if it is good and achievable, but I submit it anyway below.

        Thus the author could decide for each object whether he accepts or not whether he can be favored by him alone or by everyone.

        So admin can tell author, uncheck the photos you do not want to see elsewhere and even do it himself in some cases.

        • Thank you for the explanation. Then form point of view favourite photos can't be used for profile pictures. We'll think how to add profile photos functionality in future versions.

          Thank you for the suggestion, but it's better to create separate feature for profile photos.

          • I allow myself to relaunch this question because it is main problems that forbids me to migrate my dolphin site to una. Can I expect a solution in v9 final?

            • This feature is under the question:

              https://github.com/unaio/una/issues/979

              We're still considering to add it some of future RCs
