Flickr Threads How do you get those Buddy Icons

It adds name_reply and icon_reply links at each of the comments under your photo. When you click on the link, the buddy icon html code will be added into the Add your comment box, where you can show nicely who your replies are directed at. Experiment with preview and you will get the hang of formatting your replies in no time. (Should work on photo and discussion thread pages).

It skips over deleted accounts and only offers the name_reply link if the contact has no personalised buddy icon. Unfortunately this might conflict with other GM scripts that you have installed and I have no time to test them yet.

You need to be running Firefox Web browser install GreaseMonkey Extension and and the script from flickr thread.
