Problems with Skype Name

I just created a Skype account. I had wanted to use JohnnyCNote, but every time I clicked on the button at the bottom of the page it would tell me to review the information I'd just entered. It never told me what the problem might be, it just went round and round and became very frustrating.

 

I tried it with a different browser and it said that JohnnyCNote was not available. I finally managed to create an account using JohnnyC-Note. Is there any reason it wouldn't accept JohnnyCNote (without the dash)? If it's not possible, then I'll leave things as they are, but if not I'll try again and create a new account since I've read that the Skype Name can't be changed.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated . . .

Re: Problems with Skype Name

The thing is that it didn't say it was taken when I first tried to sign up. It only said it was taken after I started all over again. I figure I'd let it go for a while and try it later and see what happens.

 

Thanks for the reply!

Re: Problems with Skype Name

as I said, the name is already taken, which means you'll never get it

if you use Skype to search for this name, it is found, and belongs to a fellow whose initials are JC (for privacy reasons I haven't specified the exact name)
