  7. Feature 1: Profiles

    By Default Skype should have standard profile segmentation

    1.Work - add/manage contacts, profile avatar, status, privacy, groups etc
    2.Personal - add/manage contacts, profile avatar, status, privacy, groups etc
    3.Market - a micro C2C sales, marketing, ads, listing, groups

    so that its easy to distinguish between contacts from each profile
    a contact can be in both profiles or blocked/not-added in a prfile

  8. Actually working GIF profile pictures

    I know that skype can use .gif and .webp, BUT there's no animation whatsoever, the only thing that it shows is the first photogram of the selected GIF. This could be useful in some ways, as well, it looks cool.

  9. Allow users to hide their birthday from view

    Users should be able to hide their birthday from their Skype profile. Allowing users to "edit" their birthday but not hide it completely is bizarre, and diminishes user control over his/her/their information. Let us decide what is and what is not visible on our profiles.

    p.s. Proposing that users change their birthday––that is, edit their birthday to a fake date––is hardly an a solution. In fact, the suggestion (received by Microsoft Support) is laughable.
