Forum bug : cannot sign in

hi,

 

when i searched for Skype Forum on Yahoo!, i was directed here.

 

But when i clicked "login" at the top of the forum, it presented an error saying that a re-direct was being used and that this is not allowed.

 

i had to copy and past the community.skype.com URL, close the browser, re-open it and then paste it in.

and this is the URL that the "sign in" button at the top of the forum attempts to re-direct me to:

Re: Forum bug : cannot sign in

Glad you found the Community - Welcome!

 

Internet research results can vary widely depending upon the particular words used in the search.  As you unfortunately realize, sometimes you find yourself misdirected.  One thing I have learned is that most product or service websites who host their own user-to-user forum or community will provide a link to that community in the Support or Help sections of the website, such as here: Skype - > Support tab on main page -> Ask the experts or Support home page.  To cut the chase, find the site map.
