Disable Skype Status

Is there anyway to disable the Skype status from displaying? In my opinion this is just as bad as the ads because every page I view on the forum it goes out to Skype's web site to get the status. Yesterday I had over 150 hits to Skype's site. And today it's not working (broken images) and it's slowing down OSNN.

Thank you.

I mean from this site. EP is making Skype's status available down by the contact icons (for WM, YIM, AIM, etc.).

Regardless if it's broken. The whole idea behind me wanting ads free viewing was to cut down on the amount of traffic this site consumes when I am viewing from work. My superiors see the same reports I do and I don't care if OSNN shows up, but the ads and now the Skype status is another thing.

The other icons (Y!, AIM, MSNM) don't check for status do they?!

Silly fecker vB devs. I'm sure there must be a way to turn it off. *slaps EP*

Y!, AIM, and MSNM do not check status. I'm sure some think I am being an ass about this, but it's just as annoying as ads when it comes to the stats/reports.

You're not being an ass, there's simply no need to probe for the users status.

Where's them admins when you need 'em?

Removed the addon while I wait for an answer, hopefully it will be addressed before the next release - where it will be a forced addition.

Can't it be disabled that people are allowed to enter their Skype information, in turn pseudo-disabling the feature? (Just in case no answer is presented pre-upgrade and forced feature)

Just a heads up that with the new version of vBullletin came the new Skype system, so I have actually removed it from the template until the issues can be resolved.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
