Flickr Contacts Organiser Greasemonkey script


This script allows you to organise your flickr contacts by adding tags to them.

You can tag any flickr user they dont need to be your contacts in order for you to tag them. You can even tag users that have blocked you or that you have blocked.

The tags are stored locally on your machine and are thus private to you.

To tag a user you can either do it from the contacts page, where a +tag link will be added next to users icons, or theres also a "Tag this Person" menu item added to the BuddyIcon menus.

Once youve tagged some contacts, if you go to the contacts page you can view the contacts listed by tag, there is also a select box called "Current Filter" You can change the filter to view photos from those tagged users.

The current list of available filters are:

  • Most recent photos
  • Earliest photos
  • Most recent videos
  • Earliest videos
  • Recently favourited photos
  • Most interesting photos
  • Least interesting photos
  • Most interesting videos
  • Least interesting videos
  • Random photos

    Updated: 19th April 2007

    Fixed a bug that on occasion caused the tag datastore to get corrupted. now if the script detects a corrupt datastore, it will automatically fix it.

    I also added ability to backup and restore the tag datastore via flickrmail, which means you can back up your datastore to your flickrmail account and then import your tags on another computer. These functions are available via the "Tools/Greasemonkey/User Script Commands" or "Tools/User Script Commands" Menu

    Updated: 4th May 2007

    Added "Recent photos of this user" and "Interesting photos of this user" filters. These do a tag search for "me,selfportrait,flickr:user=username" on the users photostream.
    Added recent+interesting "Photos tagged with..." filters I Fixed the "testimonials they wrote" filter. Also fixed the intermittent stream duplication bug.
