I agree - sounds like a great idea! And please include, if you can, how to increase the mic input volume in Windows. :) I'll see what I can do :-) Would you/we want a video on how to add stuff to the MW, for BC's and soloists?

I like where you're going, but how about something more like "a proficiency in your languages of choice". Just to leave the voice quality out of it. Some people have a proficiency in reading and listening to a language, but not necessarily in being understood when they speak themselves. Being under...
