This is ridiculous.
I can't believe the tone of 'Neil' - clearly everyone is frustrated with this ridiculous feature and it needs addressing.
When I come to shut down my mac, my efforts are always hampered by this absurd dialog box.
HOW CAN WE TURN IT OF??
It is not only a problems with Mac, but also windows. They released a new version update a few days back, and this annoying dialog is still there.
Oh, this SO deserves a kudos. Bump! I just wish it wasn't posted under Mac, because I'm running Win7 and yes, the dialog from hell pisses me off too.
This is something I have been trying to get rid of for a year now. I just figured it out. I am running Skype 126.96.36.199 on a Mac. I was not keeping any chat history as I am sure most of us are not. When I changed that setting in preferences to save chat history for 1 month the dialog box went away when I quit.
Now I don't want to save my chat history nor do I want the dialog box. But given a choice between the two I would rather save my history rather than having an update fail due to the dialog box.
Hope this helps. One of Neil's posts gave me a hint. Thanks Neil.
I've had to edit your posts as they contravene Skype's guidelines.
I would be grateful if you would bear this section in mind.
"You are expected to maintain a helpful, respectful tone when posting. Opinions are welcome, but they may not escalate into flaming and rudeness against Skype, its staff, other forum members or any other party."
I'm surprised to see a moderator edit a user's contravening statement as soon as he posts, but not work on to solve the root cause of this issue. I believe it is because of which this topic is getting lenthened and delayed.
It simply means that Skype developers know that the problem exists, but don't want to solve it.
