    Question Can't enter email in the Skype field

    I am trying to enter my Skype username which is actually an email.
    Unfortunately when I try to save it I get the following error message:

    You entered an invalid Skype name.

    Can you please allow to set your Skype name as an email?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but I just tried it as well and it still keeps on giving me the same error:

    You entered an invalid Skype name.

    Maybe You are using one of the new TLD's (Top Level Domains) which is "dot email" perhaps these new TLDs have not yet been validated by Skype? Or maybe You put a space after your email address.

    I am not sure what the problem could be, but send me a pm (private message) with your details and I will see if we can enter your details for you in the admin panel.

    To update the situation, I too got an error that the skype name was invalid when I tried to enter it.

    I wondered if it only allowed the name that shows so I also tried your name but it will not allow the space either. The help on that particular field in the admin panel says
    Skype names must be at least 6 characters long and can contain letters, numbers, underscores, hyphens, commas and periods.
    I do not know if this is a restriction that a change in the configuration can change or not, but I will look into it.

    Hi Rick,

    I saw you successfully added me on Skype.
    Not sure if it's related to the forum.

    Yes I added you to skype to try and determine what your skype name is.

    As an example, I have a skype name that is different then my email and you can add people by their skype name or their email address.

    I do NOT use skype very often, although it is a great contact tool when you need to have a chat with someone on the other side of the planet.

    I normally only load it up if I have a specific appointment or am trying to get in touch with someone that I know uses it regularly.
