    Sykpe is closing down it's username service!

    I have just spoken to the Microsoft customer service for Skype. The reason I came in contact with them was because I wasn't able to choose my own username upon registration. It used my e-mail and put live: in front of it. I don't know if anyone really needs this information but I thought I might as well let everyone know anyway.

    The only way to currently create an account with your own chosen username is here: https://login.skype.com/registration

    I tried asking when they would be removing the feature and they replied with:




    -

    It turns out that creating an account with this method gives you the error below when trying to access Skype web client:

    The only real difference is that now you cannot choose your own username when creating an account. Instead it will use what is in front of the @ in your e-mail and stick live: in front of it. Apart from that, nothing changes.

    Clicked on thanks instead of reply >_> Enjoy your free thanks. Make sure it was worth it!

    Anyway, this does stop the freedom of choice unless you are creating an e-mail just for that account. Also, having live: in front of everything is quite annoying.

    I like usernames though, I don't wanna fuck with that email shit. xD So will our usernames change or is it just the new accounts that are affected?

    I do not think it will change. I started the conversation with the employee with "How do I create an account with a username I can choose." They sent me this link and told me to save it. They told me it will go soon and judging by the way they were talking I don't think current ones will be changed. I think they would have mentioned it as well because that was what the whole conversation was about, but I did not directly ask that question.

    Doesn't matter much to me, I made my skype years ago and won't be changing for a long time.
    I'm not surprised they're doing something like this.

    My only Skype: whaisom3d
