Anyone else has that problem? I try https://login.skype.com/account/password-reset-request and I get redirected to http://blogs.skype.com/en/.


Skype had some major problems. In some regions you are still being redirected to http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/StatusUpdate/ which itself redirects to the blog.

The same issue when testing with Web-Sniffer:

Connect to on port 443 ... ok

GET /account/password-reset-request HTTP/1.1

Connection: close

I guess you either need to wait, or contact Skype support. Without faking your whereabouts there's not a lot you can do about it on your own computer.
