I signed up for Skype three days ago - I came back today - had to re-sign up - half hour later I'm still not in the directory - neither is my brother who has been using Skype for a year.
I'm having similar problems. I am clearly signed into Skype, and the member directory is not "seeing" me - not seeing my sign-in name, not seeing my e-mail address, not seeing my full name. I am sitting here next to my husband, and we just Skyped with friends from my computer, when my husband tried to add so that we can Skype, he was not able to find me anywhere.
This thread is becoming dated ... in the Windows version of Skype, the "Directory" of old is now Contacts -> Add a Contact
