[change log] Add as contact link

Adding a contact from the Buddy Icon dropdown
Change happens. On Flickr it happens quite a lot, although it tends to be just the large stuff that gets the coverage, see Improved Contacts Management over on the main Flickr blog for example.

I’ve started [change log] posts as an attempt to highlight some of the smaller changes that go on.

And… the new Add as a contact link seems like a good start.

For quite a while now you could add someone from any page that featured their buddy icon. Hovering over it and clicking the down arrow opens up a whole selection of options, including adding them as a contact. It’s still a great way of getting to pages about that user or adding them as a contact from places such as group discussions.

As of last week Eric dropped a slightly more obvious Add so-and-so as a contact link onto the photostream page.

With the extra bonus of also saying what their current contact status is should you ever decided to change it.

Sometimes it’s the little things that make a world of difference, so yay Eric!
