"Skype me" did not work?

Hi all,

I have been using Skype for just a few days and successfully tested it with an existing user. I also did the ten second phone message test, and it worked great.

I am wanting to talk to other Spyke users who happen to be online as the same time as me. I have read in some forums where Skype users set their stats to "Skype me" and almost instantly get flooded with contact requests. I thought I would try that, but here I sit in "Skype me" mode, and nary a call. I am not even sure how to find out who is in "Skype me" mode.

Can any one help?

You should change your nick to something other than 'serialkiller944'.

Or your sex to "female".

(I have not got any calls, but my female friends say they get bugged regularly.)

All these responses have been amusing. Really! :)

But can anyone answer my second quesiton? How do I find out who is in "skype me" mode? Obviously anoucing yourself as available to be skyped has to be listed somewhere. Is it in teh Skype program itself, or somewhere on line, or.....?
