My Contacts status is not Showing Correctly....

For a contacts status to be visible (and not showing as a question mark ? symbol), they need to make their presence visible on the web. Get the contact to open Skype, and then click on Tools, Options, Privacy.  Then they need to tick the "Allow my status to be shown on the web".
