I have Skype version on my Macbook air. I used skype alot and it worked perfectly fine. But now it doesnt work at all. Im online but no one can see me, and all my contacts are offline, altough I know they are online. I have tried to reinstall Skype a few times but the problem remains. There is no firewallproblem because Skype works for my room mates which is under the same wlan-connection. What can I do?

BTW, my work Skype works just fine on the same computer, so I think it must be some kind of problem with my account...

Please create a new Mac user on your Mac, switch to that new user, log into Skype with the new user and let us know if that works.

Yep, seems to work fine on the new user. Any way I can get it to work on my old user? Would hate to have to switch to a new user, have a lot of settings on the old one...
