Welcome to the third issue of our "Community News". These news reports give you an overview of what has happened in our community in the past week. I am looking forward to hear how you like these and what additional topics you like to see covered here.

 

Community chitchat

 

The big news in the beginning of last week was the crash on sign in problems for some of our Windows users which brought quite an increase in visitors to our community. We also asked for help in pinpointing the cause for this crash by supplying logs. Some users  shared this information and helped our development team to get it resolved. Thanks a lot for that.

 

Thread of The Week

 

Here's a little overlap with the Member of the Week (see below) but this brilliant thread is just to valuable to leave it unmentioned. Take a look at the "Skype technical errors Megathread" with a detailed description of Windows tech problems and their solutions. Epic.

 

Post highlight

 

A very good explanation on how to start a new thread by Power User Primemover: Help Us To Help You! (How to Start a New Thread).

 

Member of The Week

 

This week's highlighted member is NoxxeR who just signed up a week ago and brought new input to the Windows boards. His highlight is the "Skype technical errors Megathread" where he explains the most common problems and their solutions all in one condensed thread. Great stuff, thanks for that NoxxeR also on behalf of all the users you could help with answers to their questions.

We have seen quite an increase in Friendship requests on our board with the same name. While this might seem like a handy way to expand your contact list please also don't miss the easy ways to discover friends of your's that are already in Skype. Our Skype support pages have detailed guides on adding and importing contacts.

 

Thread of The Week

 

Every now and then community users are asking whether it's possible to transfer Skype products like subscriptions or online numbers from one Skype name to another. Ours truly Andre explains what's possible and what not. A revealing read.

 

Post highlight

 

Skype customer support is people answering and helping with your Skype questions. And just like you they like to hear a nice "Thank you" when they did a good job. Thanks to User "BeachWood12" who took the time to say "Thank you" to our support staff "Keiko".

 

Member of The Week

 

This week's highlighted member is Saber who has helped especially on the english Mac boards and helped overcome quite a few installation issues. Thanks you Saber also on behalf of all the users you could help with answers to their questions. Keep it up!
