    I am really tired of Skype. My parents can't use it half of the time properly, I have bought powerful simple to use devices on the planet to help them support these apps.

    After 3 weeks my sun worshipping mother who every weekend on Skype complained about the weather in Galway tonight told me she's looking forward to a bit of rain. She'll miss the sun but this heat is too much. Arizona in August has broken her spirit.

    @PLDT_Cares Hello! I've been having having problems with my Fibr connection for weeks now. It's very unstable and inconsistent, lags in game, buffers when watching streams and Skype calls are often choppy. Can I get my connection checked?

    Look at @Skype. @discordapp came out and yeah it has its issues sometimes but it’s INFINITELY better than Skype, making Skype basically dead to everyone except business folks now until Slack offers an audio call option. I’ll never open Skype again. Why should I? I’ve got Discord.

    @WizardWorld Can you please answer your customer service line? I need to reschedule my flight..and need to know times when @SamHeughan's Skype meetings are still available..very frustrated..too short of time for many of us to make travel re-arrangements.

    Polux is currently unable to create a ps4 party so we have resorted to skype for streaming but her skype is having volume issues so now she's reinstalling skype and let me just point out this is all a struggle for nothing because the prize is Akechi and who wants that.

    @equerystrian @grrl_geek @SQLEspresso @tonysebion @MADPASS @brijeetAkula We use Skype for Business at the moment, but honestly, it's pretty fragile (e.g. connection issues, camera adjustments, or a stiff breeze will cause it to crash). We're going to be experimenting with Teams soon and if that doesn't work out we'll be trying other solutions.

    @BabyWogue @Manuelgenoves @FlatpakApps It's a hit or miss with Flatpak, but they all have this issue. Spotify (when it works at all), Discord, Skype, Code. Even had issues with Firefox when I still used it on Flatpak. It does seem to be related to first daily boot though, but nevertheless unacceptable.

    @piet4freedom Hey hey calm down now. I never once claimed you couldn't get a woman and I selected Skype as its known software. Just thought because you keep contacting me we might aswell have some And you call women whores yet you started this to defend 1 because I insulted a woman

    @matteoOJ Nats tomorrow here as well. Crash course - skype me?. Stay the hell out of green if you can help it. Only room for 1 at table. Color ranks RW > BW > UR/BR/UB - then a big gap down to the rest. UG is slightly better than the rest of the bad colorpairs. GR/GW avoid unless dragon.

    @discordapp ''It's time to ditch Skype and Teamspeak. Discord is the only free and secure voice, video, and text app designed for gamers that works on your desktop and phone.'' I would love to ditch skype but man... You gotta fix those servers.. We have almost everyday a problem.

    @SkypeSupport 1, About feedback and support, Twitter is not a good place for that, you should have a issue tracking system as Bugzilla or Github; "feedback" in the software should lead user to such a system, not like a black-box

    @jilleburke @WizardWorld Yes, from Twitter. I have not received any email from @WizardWorld or response to several tweets or my email to customer service even though I purchased a Sam Heughan autograph. I am very irritated that the people who purchased $80 autographs cannot do the Skype. That’s lousy.

    @Iiboharz my main issue with mastodon is how it's basically what Discord is to Skype. It's isolating you even further into the specific community you generally want to be in & that's kind of ech, because sometimes you want that bit of exposure from the different communities surrounding it

  • marniwillenson
    Marni Willenson (@marniwillenson) reported from Chicago, Illinois

    @WizardWorld I understand guests canceling, even at the last minute, but your customer service is terrible. It says we’ll receive an email. I received no email. There are no instructions for autograph holders and we can’t so the Skype? And no phone number to call. Come on...

    hey, @skype, where did the "disable automatic login" option go in 8.28.xx? I really don't want leaving my account active everywhere / having to manually sign out each time. that's a serious privacy issue, you should understand it.

    @mattwilson_g @MrNobre @DidrikSoderlind @classiclib3ral Monopoly somewhat built into the system, you might say. Unlike email, where you can easily contact someone using another service, or phones where you can call people using another provider. It's not even intentional. Though Discord might be a success story against Skype.

    @werenotwizards @Skype @discordapp Things that a decade of computing has proven are unworkable problems that probably require magic: * Windows updates not reliably crashing my laptop * skype's basic functions * literally everything to do with printers * accidentally opening Photoshop and losing 4 minutes of life

    Would have thought by now that @Skype would have some kind of self diagnostic tool to pick up when it's broken. Honestly, the reliability has crashed into the sea. Used @discordapp last night and it was flawless. That will be me switching over then.
