Introducing the "Me too" button

by Community Manager Community Manager on ‎08-11-2011 12:24 (10,405 Views)

When you came to our community in search for help with Skype this has probably happened to you already: Using the community search you have found an existing message which describes the exact same issue you are facing or asks the question you wanted to raise. Until now you had to reply with a "I'm having this problem as well" message. 

Entering our latest feature enhancement: You will now see on the bottom of the first message of a thread a new button which allows you to state exactly that:

Me_too_button.png

 

The idea is that we can find out much more easily which messages are most important to the majority of our community users and address them. In addition it helps users to tell if their issue might be a more widespread one.

We are currently testing this feature and might adapt it according to your feedback. How do you like it so far? Did you use it and do you find it useful?

I have had Skype for over a year. I only used it last year to talk to my daughter in Germany. I recently have a friend in Russia. I have been unsuccessful in sending a SMS text to their cell phone. The phone number, country code and area code are correct. What am I doing wrong? If I use the "verify" my cell#, will I get charged on my cell phone for sending SMS to Russia while using my cell # as the number listed in Skype?

I know you want us to read the other questions but I think it would be better to have the "Post a Comment" seen first.  It took me a while to scroll all the way down here.

Ok I need to change my username.  I can only see prompts for changing passwords.  How do I do this?

This is reall, really anoying.

Every time I click the "get more help" it just puts me back on the previous page.

I'm sure this is all set up to avoid having to give an answer to specific problems/questions

Before today skype worked just fine on my computer, but today it has been frequently crashing.  It wasn't as bad at first and it crashed after 2 or 3 hours interval.  However it constantly crashes right after I log in and it is very annoying.  It keeps giving me "Skype has stopped working" messages. 

I have tried to uninstall and redownload skype, restarting my computer but it still won't stop crashing.

This problem is annoying me very much and I ask that you send a fix to me and the many others that have posted this complaint.

Same problem but i am disconnected as soon as I begin a call.  earlier I saw a reference to a dowmload.  I can't seem to locate that entry again. The blogger claimed it cured this problem.  I recall this entry was posted today.
