  4. private Conversations and notifcations of same

    when a private conversation has either not been utilized prior to being expired and the user no longer wants that type of conversation or it has expired, there needs to be only one notification about each of these circumstancesl Moreover, the notification in question needs to be easily deleted just like the non-private chats.

  7. Allow us to lower the volume of the ringing!

    Seriously, I have to use headphones if I don't want to wake other people up with it, only to find out that even then it just about destroys my eardrums! Why did you toss the ability to lower the ringtone volume for mobile?? What were you thinking?!

  18. add optionnal comment when tagging someone for status change

    Skype: Add optional comment field when tagging someone for status change... Then show comment with notification of status change.

    When we tag a lot of people, sometimes we forget what was the reasons for tagging them. This added comment would be nice to remind us.

  20. Notify when a user changes status to active

    Hi,

    There is a very important feature which is missing in Skype for personal use (andriod app).

    If it is possible to include a feature where if any of my contacts changes status from one state to another i should be notified instantly at what time it changed the status, then old and new status. It will help a lot.

    I will really appreciate if skype includes this feature.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Abhishek J
