  4. Organizing contacts the way we want in Favorites &, then, Skype keeping contacts in alphabetical order, like before. No suggestions, please.

    Let us be able to organize contacts the way we could in V7, especially with "Favorites". I have six in "Favorites" and I love being able to organize them from top to bottom, with who I need to talk to the most. Someone special is at the top and I'd like them to stay there, above anything, including suggestions. On Skype V8, Skype's suggestions were at the top and "Favorites" were underneath and not how we organized them, either, but all out of order. How it was organized in V7 was perfect. Thank you.

  7. Please don't include previously-deleted contacts when refreshing the contact list using "Sync Contacts"

    Whenever I refresh my contact list under "Sync your contacts", all the contacts I previously deleted reappear and have to be manually deleted again. Please make the sync feature more intelligent so that previously-deleted contacts don't appear when you refresh your contact list.

  8. change the dots to something to show status of contacts to aide those that are color blind

    Instead of using color dots (orange, green) use characters such as a star or sun. People that suffer from color blindness disease can't tell the difference in a green dot or an orange dot. A star or similar character would leave no doubt what the status is of a contact.

  14. hide contacts phone number

    The user should be able to hide contact's skype name and phone number.
    It's a privacy feature. Say I want to allow my friend or partner to use my skype for calling my contacts but don't want to allow him copy my contacts Skype ID and Phone number, then I check on "Keep my contacts' profile private" which disables checking the profile details of my contacts without entering password.

  16. Ref: Mutual Contacts

    Hi,
    Your suggestions in Skype of lists of contacts which have mutual friends is a total breach of privacy, there are many reasons why this should not be shown to others or myself, on most occasions people do not want others to know of mutual contacts and even if one does not know to which friend the mutual contact belongs it can be easily found out and causes a lot of arguments and suspicions and jealousy. It’s practically the same as putting mutual friends in the newspaper for all to see, who came up with this ridiculous option? Please get…

  17. Incorporate the manual deletion of call logs and suggested contacts in the next updates of the Skype app.

    After removing someone from your contacts, you don't really want to see them on your call logs, people list and suggested contacts, especially after the ending of relationship. So an option to remove these contacts from these areas would keep many Skype users happy as they'll entirely remove the contact from their profile.

  20. Notify when contacts has deleted and/or blocked a user, and, send a notice when one closes account

    Basically, inform users of important account actions that effects their communication with anyone on their contacts list. Why does it have to be a secret? To not know is a bit rude, and for many, it causes unnecessary concerns, so why not inform people when a person has been blocked or deleted from another’s contact list, and if the person chose to delete their account? It’s as simple as, “[username] has blocked you”, “[username] has deleted you from their contact list”, and, “[username] account is currently/permanently closed”. It would really be helpful to know these things. Thanks!
