Imagine my disgust seeing some tall cat thing when I try to type out ":3". And the horror when I find out that (fubar), (finger), (wtf), and (hollest) don't do anything either.
My idea for the Windows client is for Skype to restore the (fubar), (finger), (wtf), and (hollest) smileys and remove the ":3" smiley (and reverting any other changes that were made that I haven't listed). Put the emote set back to the way it was in version 6.13, please!
My idea is, get rid of the new advertisement feature which has been put in and appears at the top of the screen when you're typing in chat with someone
Person you're typing to info here
Chat log here
The ad up top is HUGELY distracting. I don't mind ads on the contact list or on the status updates page, but when it's where I'm typing to someone its just unbearable.
This just started today for me and quite honestly it's making me want to switch to another provider for chat like things.
If there was an option to choose where you saw ads that would be acceptable as well, but right now this new thing with the ad popping up up top when I'm typing to someone is horrendous.
Hi, I have seen this system on "Facebook". It tells you if the person has read your message. It is a really useful feature. Just avoids spamming, harassing etc. It would also show you if the person/user is ignoring you or not.
Could you please add the same feature to Skype? It would be great.
How is the system working?:
You pm someone, If he saw your message without reply = It'll display this small line/message "Seen 00:00 PM/AM"
Thank you so much!
Basically, when setting yourself to Do Not Disturb mode, it would ask you if you wanted to receive notifications from certain people, or from nobody. This change would be useful if you don't want to receive notifications from everyone on your Contact List at a certain time, and just wanted to receive them from a few that you could select.
I am tired of having spammers ask to be added to my contact list.
Although I have in my settings "Allow IM's from = people in my contact list only" I still get the spammers who want to either spam me, defraud me.
I never chat to these people and always immediately report them as spam and decline the request. But I should not have to do this.
We need REAL privacy settings like we had in messenger as right now the current settings do not give you this.
I dont want people who are not in my contact list have the ability to pop up and ask to be added to my contact list - period!
many people I collaborate with using skype are very fast typers, like me. That means that reading a new message is a process of tabbing over, reading the message and tabbing back in the matter of about a second.
However the new message notification seems to be combined with a delay that results in the message still being marked as unread when tabbing back, which can be very annoying.
I therefore propose to remove this delay timer alltogether or at least give the skype user the ability to turn it off using the settings menu or a configuration file.
I know this has been discussed many times, but it would be really nice to add an OPTION (in the OPTIONS menu) that lets you make the close button actually close Skype. I'm not saying it should replace the current way or even be default. I would just like the option to do that.
It would be good to have the ability to set up a Skype meeting with specific Skype contacts and then also to have an automatic reminder for the meeting for all the participants.
Also to view inside Skype schedule of Skype meetings which you could postpone, cancel, decline, accept.
I have many contacts and would like to be notified only when certain people come online or go offline. But, Skype currently only allows for an "all or nothing" notification, so I am frequently notified about people that I really don't care about!
I'd like the "currently listening to" status back to show friends what I'm listening to. I'm often Skyping with friends and listening to music and they ask what I'm listening to.
I've always liked showing what I was listening to and I always used it back when they had the plugin.
It is inevitible that different people have different input audio levels. As such, I perceive that it is necessary to have control over individual volume levels for group call situations. Sometimes, certain people overwhelm others and the ability to adjust the individual volume levels would be really really useful. Even a mute function for when some people might be away but in a call and have unbearable background noise.
I see that you, employees of Skype, are having trouble using your eyes for basic activities such as reading, which is very disappointing, because who is then going to help us with our problems and ideas for improvement. I have the solution for your eyes though.
So maybe it is time now to stop the ignoring support you are offering us and instead listen to our ideas for once. It has been said countless of times, you can even google it if you dont believe me, that every day people keep getting frustrated beacuse of eye fatigue, you included apparently, and there is no way to get around it with your client.
I thought a company that is owned by Microsoft and which has so many users could show some respect to its users, do not take all for granted, all is not set in stone.
If you did not get my point you need to make us, all users, without charge, being able to change the appearance of the client. It does not matter if it is your own skype pre-designed templates that we may choose between or if we can just change the colours individually ourselves. As long as we do not have to endure the pain of the light.
We just do not want to strain our eyes just because you are too lazy to not having fixed such a basic feature already even though so many years has passed with similar posts like this one all over your archives. So go now fellow reader, contact your manager or what ever you have to do for the good of mankind.
Skype for Windows Desktop should use Windows Desktop Scaling. Right now, on Windows 8.1 with high DPI displays, Skype scales very badly. It is either very blurry with scaling turned on or is too small to see when scaling turned off. This negatively affects not just SMS and IM but also webcams.
Since Skype is a Microsoft product it should follow the Microsoft guidelines for desktop scaling, even if it is not a Windows 8.1 specific application. There are a multitude of other applications, like Firefox and Internet Explorer, that work perfectly with desktop scaling. Skype should do this, too.
Hi, My idea is to add custom skype groups or lists.
We all know of the "favorites" panel i guess you call it. I will refer to it as a list.
I would like to be able to take specific contacts, and assign them to a "list".
You would be able to create a list and put specific users into it, It's hard to explain.
For example, you see how favorites work, It would be like that.
However, with your own custom lists.
Now I know what you are thinking, and no. I am not talking about the setting your contacts to show a specific list like this:
I'm talking about that list, you create to show up similiar to the way the favorites panel works.
Please take my idea into consideration!
