  6. enable the old system with a profile photo where you could shrink or stretch it to fit in the window and please use the old square frame

    enable the old system for a profile photo where you could shrink or stretch it to fit in the window and please use the old square frame which was much better than the present stupid fixed size circle where the photo has to be adjusted on the profilers PC before using.

    Please let us pick a Skype Name when we first create an account. This feature was available before... We need this feature back. Please give us this feature to select a Skype Name of our choice when we first create an account.

    If possible, please give the existing users the feature of changing their Skype Names for at least one time for a certain period of time.

  9. Edible skype id name

    Allow users to change their id for other users to find them easier then the random generated codes. For whatever reason its not allowed to edit only when first signing up which is odd and not very user friendly

  15. Birthday Notifications

    Hello, in the past you had birthday notifications in the contact list and the system messaged you when a friend has a birthday. You stopped this some time ago and I also reported the issue over a year ago and it still didn’t get fixed. I’m hoping you can fix this feature so it’s available again, thanks.

  17. Hiding Profile

    You should be able to hide your profile so no one can see instead of having to close and delete account. I just want to take a break not start all over.
