Cannot create a new skype account

Hi

I want to create a skype account. Always after clicking the apply button, the boxes country and language and the two password fields are marked red. Skype name is okay and passwords are identical.

What's the problem? 

Regards

Hello!

Make sure that you entered correct information and If you checked the Skype terms and agree.

Also, you must provide a valid e-mail to Skype for contacting you if there's a matter with your account.

Have a nice day.

Re: Cannot create a new skype account

We should not have to create a really long and complex password we cannot remember for every site out there, why not a centralized place for passwords, a lot of sites are using facebook for that (which I think is the wrong site).

Another problem is that if you come up with a nice password that you use everywhere but it is kept in your computer unencrypted (with a decent algorithm) by a poorly design website, then your nice password accounts to nothing.
