Friends Suddenly Became Pending Contact Request

A friend of mine who had appeared "online" earlier tonight suddenly became "pending contact request". What does this mean? Am I deleted or blocked by him? How can I solve this problem?

 

Thanks!

I had the same issue. It means that this person has removed you from their Skype contact list (but hasn't blocked you).

I have just had the same issue whereby many contacts became "request pending" most of whom would not disconnect me! I think skype has been comprised? I suggest that the forum managers escalate this issue....!

did you find out what has happened? what did you do?

just last night, I saw my friend's name with a very unusual spelling on my contact list, and then it seemed he'd removed me written: "this person has not shared their details with you, resend contact request!"

kindda comforting that I'm not the only one having this problem

I have the same issue. Did anybody get it make work correctly?

Is this Microsoft's touch?

I have the same problem. And I can't find any answers or solutions here. I can chat with these suddenly 'pending contacts', but I can't call them. They can call me however. But it is very annoying.

Same thing, I started Skype on a machine I had not used in a while. Skype prompted me to upgrade itself, and failed to upgrade (error message about not being able to overwrite). So I deleted the old version, and downloaded and installed the newest version.
When I started it up, all except a couple of my contacts say "Pending contact request".

I also encountered this problem recently, Skyping from Mac to a Samsung tablet, where a friend was suddenly not accessible for video calls via the contacts menu. I also googled without finding aswers. However, I managed to solve the problem myself by clicking on the person's icon. Then options came up for both video call and phone call, and it was also possible to send a contact request. Hope this helps!
