    Invalid Skype name?

    Every time I try to add my Skype name in my profile settings it just tells me it is an invalid name? What gives?

    My Skype: live:boomer00oo

    You are using your outlook email as your Skype?

    EDIT: It works, but now it is adding someone without the live and that's not me. I don't even think that's a profile that exists.

    Yeah, vBulletin® is broken like that. You cant have any prefixes in your skype name. My advice is to put your skype is your signature.

    Edit: you already did that.

    Just leave your Skype button on your signature like what you just did and don't bother to put it on the MPGH option area.
    Live:boomer00oo and boomer00oo are two different Skypes. This is the different like what Ameer said about using outlook as your Skype.
    If you do not include the Live, then that is not your account.


    Please be aware of imposters. I do not own a Skype account and I will NEVER contact you outside of MPGH.
