    Default Skype name invalid

    I don't know if anyone else is having this issue but when I try to put my Skype name into my profile it gives an error saying its invalid.

    My Skype name is live:snugglefox

    Did you put it in the Instant Messaging section of your profile?

    No, that's a complete stranger I don't know called Bernard Baker's Skype name. That's why if you search snugglefox you will get 2 results but if I put snugglefox as my Skype name here when someone clicks it they will get Bernard Baker.
    My Skype name is exactly live:snugglefox because I use my Microsoft account.

    Have you tried using Skype name on the login screen?

    Do you mean login to skype with my Skype name?
    No it only lets me login to Skype by clicking Login with a Microsoft account and then entering my email address and password.
    On Skype if I login to my backup account (which is also a Microsoft account) it shows my Skype name as live:snugglefox and searching live:snugglefox will find my account while searching snugglefox with find both me and Bernard (whose skype name on his profile shows as snugglefox).

    I think the problem is that the forums were programmed back before they introduced the Microsoft account feature to Skype.

    I'll see what happens if I put it in my MSN Messenger handle since Messenger merged with Skype if I recall.

    Edit: That didn't work. I tried putting the Skype name in and it said that was invalid, I then tried my email address and it let me but then if you click add to contacts or send a message it will try to open it in the Messenger application (which was retired recently if I recall).

    The issue is the :, I'm afraid. Looks like the way they handle the code for that can't handle those kind of characters.

    Is it something vBulletin needs to fix or can a BMGF technician fix it?
    It works fine for my profile on a different website.

    All you need to login through Skype is a Username and Password
