Skype Rooms: Skype Public Chat Room vs Group Skype Chat Rooms Compared
Need A Skype Public Chat Room aka Skype Group Chat Room?
On the current version of Skype, it is no longer possible to make a Public Skype chat room from a menu that we had prior to v 3.8. As of Skype v4 and Skype 5, the menu choices (Group vs Public Skype room aka Skype chat) are gone. You can still make Group Skype rooms, but you will not have the control of being a Skype Room owner or Creator. The good news - I can still make a Public Skype chat rooms for you (or show you how for a small fee)- see bottom of post.
Whats the difference between a Group and Public Skype Chat Room?
Lets compare a Public vs a Group Skype Chat room. Some things you can have with a Public Skype chat room that are not possible with a group Skype chat room are :
- Pubic Skype Rooms List You As the Creator of the Skype Room in the Profile - Group Rooms Do Not Name You Creator
- Pubic Skype Rooms Have a Join Chat Link "Copy Link to Clipboard" Button in the Skype Room Profile - Group Skype Chat Rooms do not
- Pubic Skype Rooms Allow you to Lock Topic and Picture So Only You Can Change it, ANYONE can change your topic or pic in a "lowly" Group Skype Room
- Pubic Skype Rooms Can Have Guidelines, aka Room Rules and Resources INSIDE your chat room: Examples - Welcome Message, Purpose and Rules of Your Chat Room, Resource Links to Your Websites and Videos, and Your Training or Meeting Schedules, etc - make your room valuable enough to charge for membership!
- You Control if you want and who you want to be your room moderator hosts, helpers and can approve who can read only or read and write and when with a Pubic Skype Room, not so with Group Skype Rooms
- You can turn a room off and on when you are the creator of a Pubic Skype Rooms - Allow posting on your topic on scheduled days
- Joining Permissions: Joining allowed or not, members can - Read, Write, Neither, Either
- Removing Members: You and Your assigned Room Moderators can Kick or Kick and Ban people from your Pubic Skype Rooms - not so with Group Rooms
- In Pubic Skype Rooms you can Set Member Roles such as Hosts, Helper, User, Listener, Applicant (learn commands, I set up for you, or automate with a room bot based on SQL membership level)
- Once Joining rules are setup, a Pubic Skype Room can be listed at my Skype Chat Directory here or made a featured Skype Room for a small fee. This is a great way to setup a Skype Chat to build business on Skype!

It's Far Better To Be The Creator of Your Own Skype Chat Room Then to Make a Skype Group Chat
So, you may wonder about your chat room and you may ask, "But I Made a Skype Chat Room with my Skype 5 (or 4). So What Kind of Skype Chat Room Do I Have?"
You Have a Group Skype Chat Room
If you do make a Skype room in Skype v 4 or 5 it will be a group chat. You know because you can not do these things. You will not have the above powers which only Skype Public chat rooms give you as the owner and Creator of the room. You CAN still have a Public chat room and be the Creator and have all these controls even with the latest versions of Skype (4 and 5).

Review of Skype Pubic Chat vs Skype Group Chat Room Comparison
If you need a multi person Skype chat room, and you want these controls, these "super power", such as you listed at the top of the room as Creator, or you want join links to place on a site or blog or to send in Skype IM, or to be able to set roles such as Hosts and Read Write Joining Permissions or the ability to remove or ban members or control who can join ... then I can make you the Creator and owner of a legacy style Skype Public Chat Room. And yes, I can do this even if you and your room members are on Skype Version 4 or 5. FAQ: Will This Still Work For even newer versions as Skype upgrades? My Skype Chrystal Ball says .... well, we will just have to wait and see if it is still possible.
