    @FurKaruFam @monsteresss If she closed out the chat after removing him, there's no way to open up the history 'less they're in a server together. Discord should really fix that & make it an option to open up old chats just in case for situations like this. You can do that on Skype and Skype sucks.

  • Whytfdidumake M. (@Whytfdidumake) reported

    @CMoviemaker And I'm not sure how we'll do it? Skype? I'd have to do some sort of call type thing, but I'd be down.

  • CyberDuckBot Cyber Duck (@CyberDuckBot) reported

    The one i’m using at the top of CE, not the screen is lit doesn't really tell you you're using find and replace in notepad to try and fix something, and end up being a complete ****? skype home won't load and it actually worked pretty nicely.

    Anyone down to Skype/FaceTime?

  • agw1437 A.G.W. 🇬🇧 (@agw1437) reported

    @taniabusschau @Phoebejoy1611 @RachelWardbooks The assumption that everyone can cope with computers/emails/Skype seriously disadvantages the old. My mum can do these things (aged84) but forgets etc and I’m able to help. When IT goes wrong in old age people just give up. So worrying.

    internet issues might be the most mald inducing thing other than operating skype

  • _DanielSinclair Daniel Sinclair (@_DanielSinclair) reported

    This is terrible news for Chinese students, and it plays right into Beijing’s objectives. Many will be unable to attend online classes, whether by G Suite, Microsoft Teams, Skype, or Zoom from Mainland China.

  • SoupHeat The Self Hating Wrestling Fan (@SoupHeat) reported

    @SkypeSupport I’ve tried to attempt to reset my password on both my phone and my home computer and continue to get the same message about there being a temporary problem with the service. This has been going on for MONTHS. How do I reset my password so I can get my account back?

  • WankyBot Wanky Bot (@WankyBot) reported

  • AFredston Alexa Fredston (@AFredston) reported

    has anyone else's computer been crashing with alarming frequency these days? I can't tell if this is a Mac issue (on a 2016 macbook pro) or a result of running VPN + remote desktop + slack + zoom + teams + webex + skype on top of normal work...

  • SoupHeat The Self Hating Wrestling Fan (@SoupHeat) reported

    @SkypeSupport I’ve tried to attempt to recover my @Skype password on both my phone and my home computer and continue to get the same message. I’ve deleted & re-installed the app so I have the latest version on my phone. This continues to happen & I want to know why. Help please?

  • AlexandraMH_89 Alex (@AlexandraMH_89) reported

    Someone who I won't name (not my firm) when covid first hit rang a colleague on Skype and they videoed their conversation as a test. Said conversation involved insulting/mimicing local CJ. Who they then sent the recording to in error.

  • Casper042 Dan (@Casper042) reported

    @MicrosoftTeams Any chance you can fix the Headset Microphone integration on the Windows Teams client? In Skype for Biz and now in Zoom as well, when I press the Mute button on my headset it toggles the mute in the app as well. With Teams I have 2 different mutes to deal with.

  • ChrisTheTim Ziggy UK (@ChrisTheTim) reported

    @bdsams MSFT are riding the covidstorm well and I think will double down on cloud and use the positive cash flow to shutter underperforming divisions. Mixer is gone, Skype maybe swallowed into Teams, they could sell Series X and S at $399/299 and absorb a coupla billion loss no problem.

  • GRACIE_63 PATSY DUNCAN (@GRACIE_63) reported

    @scgovernorpress It almost 6 months since I'v seen my son. He's in the nursing home at Loris SC. It is past time to get a plan together, I need to see & hug my son. I skype 2 times a week, my son is down/depressed, his talk is like a baby you have to figure out what he is saying.

    @WSbVljxm6CcjtFP yes but not working her imo same no +971504126473 and whats app no +971504126473 call skype better baby

  • KaraLG84 Kara Goldfinch (@KaraLG84) reported

    I can't beleive that us trans people are having to prove that we're real. This whole thing just reminds me of an ex friend screaming down skype at me and a friend "you're play acting. Like they all are". before hanging up. :(

  • IAmGoldenHolden Auntie Em Hates Racists and Bigots (@IAmGoldenHolden) reported

    @InOrderOfImport @AndMeaghanSays I was once late returning a Zipcar cause I locked the keys and my phone in the car and had to skype customer service to get them to open the car. That was a fun day.

  • MantheyJakob Jakob Manthey (@MantheyJakob) reported

    Yay! I finally gave my laptop for repair and maintenance, which means I had to switch back to my old machine: - I can't send any emails - skype is not working - windows asks for updates all the time - it's sloooow This will be a very productive week!

  • leoniedelt Jen (@leoniedelt) reported

    @Kirsty_Brimelow There appear to be several errors... 1. Education was not consistently provided. I can promise you that, I have 2 state educated kids and I did all the work for 9 weeks 2. Right to physical familial contact didbt breach right to family life? Nonsense. Skype is not a substitute.

  • KissyKot Over smaak valt veel te twisten. (@KissyKot) reported

    @creativelytired @CityApologetics @mehdirhasan To be fair most skype calls go like this: "Can you hear me now?" "I can only see the ceiling, move your camera down!" Ain't nobody got time for that....

  • larsmedicares LARS MEDICARE (@larsmedicares) reported

    @SkypeSupport We are unable to use one of our skype accounts. It is showing "Your account has been restricted from using Skype's paid features." we have provided all the details that were needed. The account got released but after 2 hrs we are facing the same problem.

  • Hapa127 Hapa (@Hapa127) reported

  • BananaPro101 Banana Pro (@BananaPro101) reported

    @theSirToasty ile zero has developed a dan base 8 years of hardwork and dedication, 1.5k videos. Tons of sponsorships, to lose it all to a skype conversation 5 years ago, ZeRo isnt the only victim after all, he Apologized, it still doesnt fix it, While he is my idol he still shouldnt get away

  • TheTeshTube Tesh (@TheTeshTube) reported

    @RinSinn Thanks, luckily it was a skype meeting and it went decently, the parts that were bad were IT and HRs fault (locking down my account and forgetting to tell me to renew security background checks) so if I can't work when it starts up again it won't be my fault

  • nelle_valentine Nelle 🧡 | #blm | my life matters (@nelle_valentine) reported

    13 UK universities are gonna go bust if they don't get financial help... WHAT?!??! How can you be charging £9k+ PER YEAR PER STUDENT and talk about needing financial help. Students are still paying FULL TUITION for SKYPE LECTURES. Dismantle all of it. Tear it down.

  • bossutdlove wolfhound (@bossutdlove) reported

    Tryin to Skype someone the address I’ve been given comes up as a different person in San Jose I called the office to see if they could sort this out and happened to say “I’ve no idea how to get there of course” Tumbleweed. This is the problem with working with young people…
