    Мои родители живут очень далеко, и у них нет возможности вместо windows xp поставить новый windows чтобы установить новую версию scype. До последних дней всё работало. Но тут вы сделали "добро" и закрыли их скайп. "Молодцы", я поставлю родителям другую программу, и помогу перевести всех их друзей на неё. А уж если scype подсовывает своим пользователям такое дерьмо, то и не стоит он того чтобы им пользовались. Да и не заметно каких либо улучшений. Гадко стало.

  13. Change skype user name

    Make provision for changing user name without having to give your real name or email address, just like in Facebook...

  15. More status options!

    Add more status options like in the old days.

    The statuses would be:
    Online (of course)
    Do Not Disturb
    Away
    Busy
    Invisible! I think it gives people a lot more options to express what they're doing. :D

  16. SKYPE NAME "live:.alphanumericals"

    Please let us edit our Skype Names. The current format is complicated to be sharing to others especially for interviews.

  17. Make an edit button to change your skype name for those who have live: before their user or in general an edit button to change your user

    For those of you that are annoyed by your weird user with the live: thing in front of it or for those who don't like their user anymore, you can finally change it.
