A lot of people are using skype now to make calls over the internet, and I know a fair few here on Ozzu that have it. Maybe it could be an addition to the Contact section of our profile, it might help bring fellow Ozzuians closer together and also might help when trying to explain something to someone (a big block of instructions on a page is sometimes daunting).

Just a suggestion :) What do other people think?

I'd disagree purely because if people used Skype to contact each other for help then the good information that Ozzu provides through the current layout will start to become lesser as time goes by.

No thanks. Why change a winning formula?

Agreed. Same reason Ozzu doesn't (and hopefully never will) have a chat room.

I see your point, but I didn't mean to use as a replacement for ozzu, just as a little extra push if needed.

I like the idea, But also at the same time people would start using that more than the forums.

How is adding skype different to adding icq, msn, yahoo and aol messengers? I don't think people would use it more often than the forums penguin, they're useful for different tasks.

Besides on Skype you can also text chat too. I don't see the harm in adding a button for skype.

I don't think having a field for Skype is any different than having one for Yahoo, MSN, or email past the technical aspects of those services.

I'm not saying he does, but I'd be willing to bet Bigweb has this on his list now.

phpbb3 includes a field for Jabber. It could probably be easily changed to skype.

Nien! I'd much rather have a Jabber field than a Skype field.

Then again, I'm probably somewhat outnumbered on that.
