This community is for English speaking users of Skype and other VoIP applications to talk to people and make new friends. It is also to discuss issues with Skype and other VoIP programs and hardware like sound cards/headsets/microphones, etc.
The primary motivation for the creation of this community is that, until now, there are no other Skype communities on livejournal where English speaking users could meet and make new friends and discuss issues related to Skype and VoIP, because all of the other Skype communities, at the date of this writing, are primarily populated by speakers of Russian or other closely related Slavonic languages.
People who are not native English speakers are welcome, but the lingua franca of this community is English. Every post must be in English, and if you post something in a language other than English, you must provide an English translation. By all means, don't be shy! Come on in and meet friends to practice your English with!
This is also not intended to be an "alternative lifestyles" Skype community, for people who are looking for phone sex or just trying to hook up. I'm not going to play internet police in here and tell you you can't go looking for those things, but I'd like the posts in this community to be safe for families/teenagers to view. As such, please put all "personal" or "in search of" ads, as well as posts that involve derogatory language, behind a cut tag.
Posts that contain more than one picture or nudity/other material inappropriate for underage viewers should also be placed behind a cut with a clear warning as to the subject matter given.
Please keep all posts on topic.The whole purpose of this community is for English speaking Skype/VoIP users (or those who want to learn/improve their English by finding English-speaking pen/phone pals)to meet, chat, discuss issues, and have fun! What you do after that is entirely up to you!
Obviously, these rules will evolve as needed.
