When I have used this in the past the convener has been able to generate a
direct link to the call for Skype users. As it is, while experimenting with
doing it this way in Skype with the users entering the number, I've been
totally unsuccessful at entering the room number from the edit field. I
think the more accessible way to use this service is to register and then
Skype will generate ID's for moderator and participants that activate from a
link and do not require you to find some elusive place to enter the room
number. Other than the standard edit field, I don't know where you'd enter
