    I've noticed that posts made by those with Skype information filled out have formatting errors; what used to be a little icon indicating online status is now an elongated rectangle of either text or a missing image. This throws off the alignment elements in the post and sometimes makes it wider than others.

    If there's a more general bug submission page, I'd prefer this post be placed there.

    I can confirm this using Safari on iPad Air 2 with iOS 8.3.

    It appears to be a resurfacing of this:

    It's because Skype discontinued the old Skype button (since May 20 I think?).

    On a message board I am a Moderator on, we simply changed the icon over to the static version. Granted, it no longer tells you when someone can be reached over Skype but it corrected the broken formatting as well as provided an icon that the less than technical could recognize and use.
