  3. Bot-friendly logs, so we can extend skype features with own apps/scripts.

    Ability to dump incoming interface-visible actions (ALL interface-visible actions, including exact chat words, transfered files in base64 dumps, etc) to a log, so that various user-editable scripts can do a variety of useful things, such as:

    -Ring a different kind of ring when certain users try to contact (aka the "Girlfriend/boss distinctive warning sound" feature half the users want. This should come by default as an example script.

    -sound notifications for keywords (several keyword lists, each list having its distinct sound). Good for sellers, parental control software, and law enforcement types.

    -Actual local history files (chat and files)

    -Antivirus file…

  5. Please return the setting in 8.34 version in downloading files in certain contacts.

    Please return the settings of 8.34 in downloading files. Start from 8.36 up to this latest version we feel so embarrass because we need to wait the file has been downloaded before proceeding to another contacts.

  6. ALLOW CALLER-ID FOR LANDLINES, AT LEAST THOSE W/SMS CAPABILITY

    ALLOW CALLER-ID FOR LANDLINES, AT LEAST THOSE W/SMS CAPABILITY

    RIGHT NOW IT FAILS TO REGISTER LANDLINES AND WEBSITE FAILS TO EVEN NOTIFY USER

    ALSO, THE NEW SKYPE (ON BROWSER) NEEDS THE ABILITY TO DRAG/EXPAND MESSAGE BOX VERTICALLY AND HORIZONTALLY (WHICH ALSO HORIZONTALLY STRETCHES THE MESSAGES ABOVE) FOR BETTER VIEWING ON MONITORS LIKE OLD SKYPE 7.41

    Also restore 7.41 features like the Muppet Mojis, AWAY STATUS, and ability to pop out chat window (separate from contact list)

  10. Proposition for new Polish voice for Echo Sound Test

    Sorry, but I'll get it streight: Polish Echo Sound Test voiceover is just terrible (bad articulation, mounching, terrible voice tone...)
    But I am an voicover actor and instead of lamenting, I have recorded my own version, and I wanted to share it with you.
    I am asking for an answer, because my ears are bleeding :D

  12. sound option disabling automuting of host computer sound

    As far as i have found out Skype will recognize that a piece of audio is coming from the host computer and mute "the sound from the computer" even if you try to loop it around into the input (scroll down).
    my setup is as follows 1. my input is an external soundcard.

    I am trying to get my youtube to go into the computer via my external soundcard like this: computer output (youtube)>mixer>external soundcard>computer imput.

    i cannot use the "share screen and sound" option, because then the sound from the computer and my guitar are out of sync, since…

  15. Improvements for people with eye dysfunctions

    People with Macular Degeneration and Blood Vessels Thrombosis are not able to change to font to the desirable size nor to bold it nor nothing!
    Very close relative of mine has these terrible conditions and makes the usage a real struggle!
    It is ridiculous and can be considered as a discrimination - it is surprising how your team can change the settings without considering such disabilities?!
    Please do your best as this requires almost no efforts to be adjusted!
    Thanks in advance!

  20. checkbox not to remember sign in credentials

    introduce checkbox "not to remember sign in credentials". It is frustrating to sign out picking a choice to forget details all the time with bunch of prompts for "yes" and "no"
