    @fwosar @malwrhunterteam Escalate with your account manager if you haven’t done so already. Took me over a month going back and forth on emails to finally get someone knowledgeable enough to help troubleshoot on a Skype call.

    My character manages on 3 health to run his happy ass down the hill, and kill the final drau. All I hear on the Skype call is my DM groaning. “You guys, why do you never freaking ease up. You were supposed to be kidnapped! Go get the bard.”

    josephine coyle (@foodiecommuter) reported

    @SkypeSupport Thanks will consider it. Why didn’t Skype just tell me that instead of simply cancelling it and sending me wrong information about why? Can you feedback this poor service to directors?

  • fujifilmshooter
    Per (@fujifilmshooter) reported

    @lacesoutdan And I am trying to get my colleagues back to Skype instead on Slack. Skype is free with pretty much the same functionality we're looking for across all teams. But I know, deep down inside, that I will fail.

    @superlinguo @pewterbaw @chasing_ling (Unpaid, obviously, but I can use my network to help find people to interview, and then you get half an hour or so on skype with them and send me a write up for ATL, you can see what the style looks like from previous interviews)

    @Skype Trying to delete decade old accounts that I made in High School is nigh impossible. I don't even remember my current pwds!! Why don't accounts w/out billing info have expiry dates? Or why don't you guys have a direct customer service contact?

    @SkypeSupport I get system notifications when the message eventually arrives. It's the delay that's the problem and I know I'm not the only one with this problem.

  • PeteNorth303
    Pete North (@PeteNorth303) reported

    @SkypeSupport It's an ongoing issue and restarts don't solve it - but really more concerned as to why my Windows PC version it unreliable. Not getting notifications or anything so missing important communications.

    @_thepapajohn Skype: Go to the tools drop down menu and click on options and uncheck the Start Skype When Windows Starts or something like that. I am not sure on Spotify since I don't have it but I think its something similar to that.

    @SkypeSupport : I'm long time user of @Skype for international calls and new app is terrible for it. For example, what I need: find a contact from my address book. What Skype does: searches for Skype users. I'm ready to leave.

    @ynnahs_ This one time I was in a video skype call and my drawer opened by itself. I heard it, turned around and it was open. Everyone looking at my cam said they saw it open by itself. My room is haunted. It also knocked down the top shelf of my closet before.
