I propose this support group for all those currently unable to use Skype because of their recent technical issues. Apparently it's a UK/Aussie/Japan thing only, but it might be affecting some other folks. It's okay. You're not the only one with problems. We're here for you.

Yeah. At first it was the 'refreshing' sign that wouldn't go away, so I logged out. Then I couldn't log back in.

If you're having a problem logging in, got to the Skype Website and go on the "Skype for Web" thing that has "Beta" underneath.

It allows you to at least log in that way.

You don't need a support group, you just need a little patience.

Issues with Skype status and calling

By Leonas Sendrauskas on September 21, 2015.

Updated 15:00 UTC

We have identified the network issue which prevented users from logging in and using Skype today. We're in the process of reconnecting our users, and focused on restoring full service. The issue did not affect Skype for Business users.
Skype is still a giant steaming turd, but at least they keep their users up to date (via Help -> Heartbeat (Skype Status)) on unexpected problems.

Last I heard, there were a few people with troubles using the mobile app, but almost all my friends using the desktop version are back online now.
