  1. The ability to erase all contacts EXCEPT my favorites list

    I have so many contacts that I no longer need, but the only way to get rid of them is individually. I would like to suggest a way to clear the hundreds of contacts I no longer need at once without touching the contacts on my favorite list.

  5. Neutralized of blocking or expulsion function

    Good afternoon!, I wish to be considered in next skype software revisión this functionality:
    Allow an administrator user with the ability to restrict other users from blocking or ejecting other contacts who are participating in a conversation. Sincerely. Alessio Luis CONTI. Argentine teacher

  9. option to view my favourites only and hide chats and contacts

    It would be great if I could get rid of the alphabetical list of contacts and just show my favourites and any live conversations between them.

    I still need the option to search for and add new contacts or favourites though. I just want to be able to tidy up the screen once I have added a new favourite.

    Thank you for your help.

  10. Reply to new contact request

    Can you enable being able to Reply to Contact Requests BEFORE accepting them as a contact. I do not receive many requests. When I do, I want to ask them who they are and how they know me before I accept or deny them. What if they're an old friend I've lost touch with but want to talk to now. But I can't tell that unless I am able to ask how they know me!
    Is my only option to Accept them, ask how they know me, the Block them if I don't know them?

  12. I want to see my favorites when I select contacts -- not chats.

    Currently I can only see "my favorites" when I have chats selected. It would be more helpful to see my favorites when I have contacts selected.

  18. Japanese Mobile number as caller id

    Is there any way to add Japanese mobile number as caller id in skype ? If not, why it is restricted ? I have seen, many other countries are listed on that list of 'Add Caller Id' section.

    Do you have any plan to add Japanese number to skype caller id section? I have subscribed to a international call subscription. But my called person see 'Unknown' when I call them.

  20. Skype active status inaccurate...fix please.

    Skype doesn't show my contacts accurate active status until I close the app down and reboot it. Having to do this every five minutes which is getting annoying. Please fix it so it's correct. (Example, signs people out after 3 minutes etc, not stuck on something that isn't right.)
