Hi,
I want to search for online users on skype or msn messenger or yahoo messenger or a very widely used messenger , but I can not , the only way I found that there is a site telling online users for skype but telling only the Gender and Age , but I want also a way to find out where they are from , for old versions of skype , there was changing mood to "Skype Me" , but it is not working now , So what Is the solution ?

There is no way to search for all online users for any service.  That would be a major security hole.  There are ways to find out if users you have "usernames" for are online, but that is about it.

There may be a website, but I doubt it would be up-to-date.  In case it helps, skype-me might do the trick...

What is not working?  As I said, anything would be a security hole, and closed up if it got around.

Any luck?  I really doubt it can be legally done.
