I totally understood the name without any confusions but was a bit amused by (for me) great coincidence of similarity of your name and the Welsh word "beth". Love that part.
To determine who's speaking on Skype you have to watch the blue line below the person's window. If the blue line appears it means that one person is speaking. if there are more persons speaking at the same time or there's any more strong sound comming from ones direction, all those windows providing the additional sound will have that blue line below aswell.
To determine the names - usually the people on Skype (at least those I have in my contact list) have their real names and sometimes even surnames and if you hoover over the one's window with your mouse, you'll see the name appearing for a short time. This way I hdelp myself with determining the names of the participants in the middle of conversations until I remember the names. When session is finished you always can open the group window (by doubleclicking on the group) and take a look at the participants. They're all named below the group name in the window and if they don't appear you can simply click little arrow which shows something is hidden beneath it and streach the content hidden withinn this arrow.
In hope @ramblingjohn and @brigitte won't mind having their faces on here in order to demonstrate things, here's the picture when you see John talking while me and Brigitte are listening to what he has to say..
You see John has that blue line I was writing before below his camera stream window while Brigitte and me have none.
To see the participants or take a look of what was going on in the modst of conversation if anyone had written something into the message window or to determine how long the session was, you can see as follows:
Well, I hope this helps with understanding and finding some things. As I've written on that last picture, pin your eye on the duration of the conversation. I'll just say Llongyfarchiadau i chi bawb! as majority of you were active in the conversation but if even only mostly listening, for approximately the whole 2 hours excdpt of those who joined later and those who went off a bit earlier.
Special congrats to you @onomatopoeicowl as you've been on for approximately 2 hours, mostly listening but when there were only few of us left you've showed your speaking skills aswell. I've said in the conversation already that you're speaking very well using the wide range of words and sometimes it appeared even I don't have all that repertoaire of the words you have. And as I see things you really need just a bit more speaking practice and wualla! a fluent Welsh speaker you will be
I don't know for how long you're learning @margaretsteinmann (I probably knew but have forgotten though) but you did superb work too, leading conversation all along the time you were in session.
All the rest you know you're doing extreamly well without me telling you this and @PeterG you're pro in comparrison to me ...
So Chiers to you all and chiers to John who organizes all this every single time and to Brigitte who managed to come along if even returnihg home late, to Stella who decide to join us and to Phillip who always has interesting questions to ask. Brilliant team all of you!
Did I forget someone .. hope not ... ah ja, @henddraig, congrats to you as you were using Welsh almost all the time in the conversation and @Jane obviously had the best connection of us all since her stream was very clear in deed and the mixture of clear speach you have and the excellent connection gave one the feeling you should talk a bit more next time.
