  5. Allow blocking chat for a contact without blocking contact.

    I meet with children who distract themselves sending me chat emojis. It would be great to be able to disable receiving chat messages from individual contacts. Many people will appreciate this feature which would be unique to Skype (I think?)

  6. DON'T COUNT MESSAGING A CONTACT I HAVE SEND A CONTACT REQUEST BEFORE!

    DON'T COUNT MESSAGING A CONTACT I HAVE SEND A CONTACT REQUEST BEFORE AND WHO HASN'T ACCEPTED MY CONTACT REQUEST OR DECLINE MY CONTACT AS "SENDING A CONTACT REQUEST". So that it won't take spaces of how many contact requests users can send contact requests on Skype without risking their accounts getting restricted.

  8. Transfer all contacts between accounts (bulk)

    Please add the ability to transfer all contacts to a new account (i.e. a different account owned by the same user) in a single bulk action, to aid in the process of consolidating/merging accounts.

  11. Mutuals-only chat requests

    I get a BUNCH of spam messages to my work Skype account. Can we get an optional feature that makes it so that inbound contacts must have at least 1 mutual to contact you?

  13. Temporary Block/Mute

    In the old Skype you could easily block someone temporarily (eg family members who are being annoying or spmming you whilst at work) but they still remained in your contacts so you coudl easily unbock them when you have more time for them - but the new Skype makes this a long winded procedure - could blocked contacts remain on the contact list OR a new "mute" function be brought in. This is wasting hours of my time every day :-/

  16. Add AOL to the list for contacts

    Not everyone uses, or wants to use, Outlook as their default Microsoft email platform. Allow AOL to be added as a default email service provider! It's old school, but lots of people are old school. Old school got us to where we are today.

  17. recording

    Hi,

    I'd like to retrieve my recording. How can I do that.
    I had a recording on 23 October.
    I do need it please.

    The recommendation is for longer time frames, or to have these retrievable from history file.

  20. anonymous contacts abound

    right now, a person who enters a contact name is faced with figuring out which of the 3, 4, 5 or 6 presented (anonymous) contacts is the friend. currently, with OPTIONAL photos (or stupid photos) and no OPTIONAL location, it could take weeks to figure out which contact is the right one. skype currently breeds mistaken identities and name hijacking. right now, the skype contact method is a failure.
