Re: [OPEN]World's Story 4: Greece and Rome - kit

I have fixed and reuploaded section 52. New runtime: 2:45 And here is section 73 about Pompeii: https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume04_73_tappan_128kb.mp3 I was hoping for something less poetic and a bit more factual. But I guess with a mere 6:32, that's all he could do... :lol: Yes...

Re: SOLO: The Scottish Fairy Book by Elizabeth W. Grierson - dc

I'll be sure to get at least a few of these done Monday or (probably) Tuesday, when I get back from my trip.

Re: 2018 Christmas Carol Suggestion

Why not, but could I suggest you listen to the anniversary songs if you haven't done so before? I've never BCed one, just read the threads. And maybe ask someone like elizabby who has attempted chorus making, I think it's difficult to edit too many voices into the one bit, so your choice of Carol m...

Re: [GROUP] Twentieth Century Negro Literature-mas

Thanks Craig!

Yes, I'm very interested in hearing the rest of it. It has been slow so far, but I'm confident that at LV, if you launch it, readers will come. :wink:

Edit: And yes, Talks for the Times looks good as well. I think I posted it in Book Suggestions when I recorded this section.

Re: [grp-RELIG] Faces in the Fire- Boreham (d. 1959)-mas

A friend of mine who is also interested in Boreham just published this exhaustive list of his works on his own web page. I've bookmarked it for future projects. :wink: https://pioneerflame.com/2018/10/08/detailed-bibliography-of-f-w-boreham/ Very nice! I'd like to his his page for G. Campbell Morga...

Re: As a BC, how can I edit volunteers' files?

I agree with Anne. You should almost never need to edit a reader's file. In the books that I've BCed up to now (I haven't been counting, but probably somewhere near a dozen), I think I've only ever edited two, maybe three files. One was an instance where a reader disappeared without addressing the P...

Re: DPL time limit guideline

When a PLer signs on for a project, they have no idea whether they will have 1 section uploaded every hour, every day or every year so they have no control over their workload This is of course an excellent point. I am DPL for one project which I think hasn't had a single submitted section for over...

Re: DPL time limit guideline

Along these lines, it would be helpful to BCs to have a guide line regarding time limits. As a BC, I want to be respectful both of the fact that my DPL is a volunteer, as well as that my readers would like timely feedback, particularly the new ones. It feels a bit like a tightrope walk sometimes, tr...

Re: [Children NF]Insect Adventures by Fabre/Zimm - jo

Fantastic! I've entered that into the MW (magic window). I do already notice that the file name is incorrect. In the first post of every project, you'll see instructions on how to name your files. The easiest way to make sure they're correctly named is to copy and paste the example file name from th...

Re: [DUET]St. George and St. Michael, Vol 2 - thw

Great! Nevertheless, I will listen soon! Maybe not today, but soon. I've been wondering whether I should go ahead and record my chapters for this one, just to have them checked off. But I had a hunch I'd hear from you soon, as the weather got colder. :)

Re: [SOLO] - When Lighthouses are Dark by E.C. Brill - tg

I will summarize all PL results here and just update this post. All sections: only one or two sections of silence at end, instead of required 5. All sections from Chapter 2 onward: missing author name in intro. 1: Intro is missing "Chapter 1 of" at the very beginning. 5: missing chapter number at en...
