1.Community 2nd birthday wrap-up.
Another year has passed and the Skype Community is 2 years old.
Huge thank you to everyone for celebrating with us! We truly believe in you, our community members and look forward to our next missions together!
Because our community wouldn’t be a community without its users we decided to take this opportunity to introduce you Tamim, Skype Community member who knows this place better than his own pockets ;)
I had a chance to ask him about his story:
“I am a graduate student in Computer Science and Engineering. I am finishing my final year of study. I am 30 years old and have more than 10 years of experience in telecommunication field as Network Administrator. I have a special knowledge in VoIP technologies (Unified messaging, Software, IP centrex, softswitchs...)
In 2001 / 2004 I was very ill and I needed to stay at home for bed-rest. So I was looking something to communicate with my friends. Then I found Skype. Also, I was looking to be in a community with people of all races and different backgrounds so that I can better relate to people in my social life.
I have been troubleshooting from 2001 / 2004 for my friends and acquaintances. When I was new with PC, I faced several problems - every time I sought help from others. But their solutions werehard and tough to newcomer. So I decided to help others in easy and shortcut methods which will be very easy to cope new users.
Troubleshooting is my passion, I have been through technical troubleshooting for over 10 years now. I am of course willing to support others with my contacts and give advice based on my experiences and background”.
Once again- thank you Tamim for all your hard work!
After several months of work in the secret Skype community labs, we are pleased to bring a fresh new look to the community. One of the guiding principles behind the update was to enable you to access what matters to you easily. You’ll notice a wealth of information right on the homepage, from the latest announcements, the top kudoed authors and recent solutions. Additionally, in discussions where a solution has been identified, you’ll be able to see the solution right at the top.
Let us know what you think in the comments, and please keep the feedback coming. Is there anything that doesn't work the way you'd expect it to?
