  2. Allow conversion of Skype name to "live:.cidnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn" format.

    If a person, say Fred Blogs deleted their Skype account (or Microsoft account), then comes back to Skype a while later...

    They can't be live:Fred.Blogs anymore, they'd be live:Fred.Blogs 1 or maybe 27 .

    I took to creating an alias in Outlook.com that was my cid number as shown in OneDrive URL

    e.g. onedrive.live.com/?id=root&cid=nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

    I've noticed there are many live:.cid Skype names now.

    Not being the 'one and only' is not so nice too.

    And so a button to a one way trip to convert to live:.cid would be a kindness.

    Even if it's put as a OneDrive URL, as…

  8. Delete Skype w/o waiting period

    Delete Skype/Microsoft account without 60 day waiting period. Newly converted anabaptists from conservative groups will have quite the struggle otherwise.

  10. Get to pick quotes

    Like when u don’t have quotes it says when u were online
    So in that part they should put a selection of quotes to pick from. There should be at least a 100
    E.g quote: ‘diamonds aren’t a girls best friend, it’s the friends that are diamonds’

  17. Bring back the feature to unlink your skype from your microsoft account!

    The option to delete your skype account without deleting your Microsoft account should be a feature! This is that you can't unlink your account. What was like "hmm you know what would be a good idea? Having to disable your Microsoft account in order to delete your skype account." Like honestly y'all are ******* for not having this option

  20. Profile name or username

    I've encountered a problem that requires your help. I am Asif Iqbal. At present, I am freelancing in graphics design alongside education. In the workplace, I have to communicate with domestic and foreign clients. That's why I chose Microsoft Skype as a mode of communication. I use the convenience of my self-banding (asifuix) so clients can easily find me! However I cannot change my Skype name (live: .cid.e309485a45ea9105). I need a username to match my own banding. I hope you give the right solution and cooperation.
