Re: In Honour of the 14th Anniversary of LV, plz proofread and make ebooks on PG written by fourteen different writers?

"If you really want it posted, could you write a short paragraph that an admin could copy and paste to the blog? Most of your posts on this thread are entirely too long for the purpose, and the nature of the post would need to be more mildly stated in order to attract serious notice." Mildly stated?...

Re: In Honour of the 14th Anniversary of LV, plz proofread and make ebooks on PG written by fourteen different writers?

No, I don't bend! I cannot, and will not, delete my request for transcribing, proofreading and uploading ebooks to Project Gutenberg. Among the replies, some people have said that recording audiobooks or prooflistening audio files is an easier task than proofreading ebooks for PG. Then, how about th...

Re: In Honour of the 14th Anniversary of LV, plz proofread and make ebooks on PG written by fourteen different writers?

Another question, or, should I say, scenario, to ponder: Why should blind people be denied of participating in many LV song collections, such as a Christmas Carol Collection or Opera collections? If the carol or opera is available as an accurate, accessible ebook on PG, I and other blind people can ...

To LV siteadmins, I repeatedly ask you, please post my request to the LV blog.

Why is any siteadmin not listening to my plea? Why? Please, give me a satisfactory answer. Until then, I don't have any choice but to post repeatedly about my initial proposal for the ebook conversion for PG.
