Thanks, I understood this also, but what instructions 'below'? 'Below' where?

 

The instructions that I see in this thread are not clear, even if they are for a custom message besides the avatar.

Re: Creating a custom status? Default mood and time limited mood.

Hi,

 

I would like to set a certain mood only for a limited time. For example: "I am in Malta" but until Feb 2nd ...after this date the mood shall revert automatically to some Default mood, for example "Back home". The same concept can be applied to status .... I want to be "offline" or "not available" for the next 2 hours, for example (I am at the opera), then revert to "Available" 

 

thanks for considering my proposal

 

Aurelian

Re: Creating a custom status?

I fairly boggles the mind that this isn't an existing feature. I hope Skype takes this kind of into account as they merge with Windows Live Messanger. Because in WLM, setting custom statuses has been in place and use for a long time.

Re: Creating a custom status?

Didn't work for me, but I would like one of my custom statuses to be bathroom related, lol. Because one of them always is for other IM clients.

Re: Creating a custom status?

I understand that I can create a new "mood message" that would tell people that I've run to the store, but I have to open my profile to do that. Being able to create a custom status would mean that can change it from the icon on my task bar. We're not missing a feature, we want a new one - one that a lot of other message clients let you do.

Re: Creating a custom status?

Hey there

there's this trick for putting your mood message straight to your toolbar. 

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 11.16.46.jpg

Open the Terminal application (in your Applications/Utilities) and paste in this command:

defaults write com.skype.skype ShowMoodMessageInToolbar YES

and press enter. After that restart Skype and you have an easily editable mood message in your toolbar :happy:

 

Cheers,

R.

Re: Creating a custom status?

Thanks for the mood-at-your-fingertips tip for Mac.

 

How do you do it for Windows?
