    Thanks for the heads-up, AmazonSEO:

    I will notify the Admins and point them to this thread.
    I'm sure they will look into it and see what can be done. :)

    Hi AmazonSEO

    Skypenames can't contain :'s we verify Skype names against current Skype requirements.

    From Skype
    "What is my Skype Name?
    Your Skype Name is your unique username for Skype. It must be between 6-32 characters, start with a letter and contain only letters and numbers (no spaces or special characters)."

    The SKYPE name you're trying to enter "live:blackhatexperts" isn't a valid Skype name and therefore won't be accepted.
