        As you know, there is an “official” NakedExperiment Skype channel. Quite a few people (probably 3-5 per week) have found our community via Skype, but what I don’t understand is the 2-3 people per day who request permission to contact me (as is standard on Skype) and say “Hi” then, when I reply “Hi” never type another word to me. They are pretty much all male and mostly have avatar photos etc.

        This happening occasionally, I could understand, but it’s the vast majority of contact I receive on Skype.

          I don’t know if you are ‘missing something’ other than the fact that Skype has really much been replaced by programs like discord as a video chat community building resource.

            I’m not a skype user, so I’ve no way of seeing what a user sees when they connect by skype.

            But I think the problem may be that if something is thought to be a “chat”, they’re probably expecting to get a reply from a bot within seconds. Or they assume you have a hundred staff and one of them will answer within a minute. If they still don’t get a reply after that, they assume it’s out of order and don’t bother to come back later.

            Anyway, just wondering: have you tried asking them a quick question instead of just saying Hi ? At least then if they do eventually come back later, they may choose to reply with something more than just another Hi.

                I’ve tried that too, but no difference. Well, actually I had two people block me. I even reply to the people who open the conversation by posting a nude photo.

                Skype has been particularly effective this week. It’s attracted 4 people to the community. I just hope most of them decide to stick around.
