So I'm in a Skype chat. I'm the host. And one of my friend's has the admin powers. He can kick anyone. End the call. Or even remove people from the group. And he himself can't be removed. He admitted it's a hack thing, but wont tell me what it is. Please help! I want to know what this is and how to stop it! He's making this so annoying.

EDIT: Being more clear here. I know I'm the host and owner of the chat because I initiated the first call to a friend of mine, and then added him in myself later and created the group chat. I do "/getrole" and it tells me I'm the "MASTER" of the chat. And I have all the admin powers. Yet I don't have any power over him. Everyone and everything else, I do. But not him. He has the same power I do. And more. He can kick me from the chat, even though I am host/owner/creator/master of the chat. I can't do ANYTHING to him.

This isn't anything to do with hacking.It's the admin features that can be used in a Skype group chat. Since he most likely made the chat, he has these powers. If this is getting to you, you'll need to make a new group chat and add your friends in, so that he does not have these powers.

Type /help into the message window to see the commands that can be used for a better understanding, there are 5 levels of power that can be assigned to users of the group chat.

Please also note that just because you are hosting the call, that does not make you the admin of the chat. The admins are always the first two people who were chatting and formed the group in to which the other members were added.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I was hosting it. I did /getrole on myself and it told me I was the "MASTER" and I know I created the call because I do every day. We talk almost all day. I call a friend, hang out on Skype, then when he gets home from school, I add him to the call. Every day. I am ALWAYS the host and admin.

You will need to /getrole him then. See what role he has. If you are the master you will be able to set it to something more appropriate so that he cannot mess around with the channel. If he was the person person you added to the call then he will also have Admin rights.

I did /getrole on him as well. It said "CREATOR" and I tried to /setrole USER on him, but it didn't work.

Although I know for a fact that he isn't the creator. So how did he get that role?

In that case, it must be something, try making a new chat and move your friends in to that chat instead. If he gets it again, I would report it to Skype.
