kri, to explain why some projects might be abandoned, wrote:... We understand that life intervenes and is far far more important than helping us out at LibriVox. At the very least, I do, and I'm sure I'm not stepping too far to say the rest of us running around behind the scenes understand as well. All we ask for is a little notice if you've got projects that you're responsible for, and no guilt is necessary. Even if you decide that you're just not enjoying things anymore and don't really want to participate, we really won't think badly of it. It's important to have fun, enjoy yourself, and if you're no longer doing those things, let us know and we'll be glad to wish you well and find other people to take things over for you.
Sometimes a soloist or closed group will not be able to finish their project and opens that project for others to work on. When this happens, their MC will add the book to the list below, and move the project thread into storage. This thread is to advertise for either a soloist to complete the book using the existing files, or for an experienced book coordinator to convert it into a group project.

If you would like to pick up any of these projects, and use the existing chapter file/s please create a NEW THREAD in the Launch Pad, including all the regular information. You should use the solo/group template as appropriate, and post that you are adopting an abandoned project. You will need to wait for a new MC to sign up to the project, then they will be able to recreate the old Magic Window, including the links to existing files.

If you would like to read the original project thread before deciding, please post below, and any MC will be able to move it out of storage to Book Suggestions for review. You could also ask there if others are interested in helping! If you decide to go ahead with it, please create a NEW THREAD in the Launch Pad as described above.

If you decide to begin a brand new project, not using any of the old files, you do not need to post in this thread at all. Proceed to the Launch Pad and begin the new project.

Once an adopted project is underway, please check that your MC has removed the posts from this thread, just to keep things tidy.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

If you cannot see the project thread, it is because it has been moved off the general forum. Post here to ask for an admin to move it back so you can see it.

OK, folks - here's a weird, advanced BC project for someone. A post from back in 2008, in an obscure corner of the forum:
One suggestion for a text, is that we carry on with Freaks on the Fells. I've not finished editing what we did last time (with Sibella), but it was fun...

The files are located here: https://librivox.org/uploads/abandoned/freaksonthefells%5bNK%5d/

It seems like it might be started as a dramatic reading. Would someone want to take a listen to these, see what has been done, and maybe eventually finish that off - either as a DR or as a straight group project?

Tricia,
First file...
8:17 a line is misplaced. Should be:
“Good-night, Jack, I will!”
End of Story 2, chapter 1
Story 2, chapter 2

File 2 is PL OK.

This was set up as a DR. I don’t know what can be done now for vc or to confirm that each reader has a LV account.

What has been recorded is Story 2, chapters 1-4.

What remains is:
Story 1, chapters 1-21
Story 2, chapters 5-10
Story 3, chapter 1-2

If we can figure out what to do about the voice credits for these two files and if nobody wants to continue it as a DR then I could take it as a group project. I could continue it as a DR but it will take me a few weeks before I could get to the scripts. It's 73k words so this would be a long running DR.

Thanks, Linny!

Is that misplaced line somewhere else, or is it something that we could just say, "The rest is correct, and this is an ancient file, so we're going to overlook the one mistake"?

Regarding finishing it up: one could probably just finish up Story 2 as a DR, I'd think, rather than doing the whole book. Then either Stories 1 and 3 could be left out completely, or they could just be done as regular group project work.

The voice credits: I'm thinking in the intro/summary we could just put that these were old files found in the cobwebby corner of our uploader, and that we don't have regular voice credits (or perhaps even catalog entries) for it. It'd be nice to put them in a cast list and give them section/catalog credit, but it's probably not required for such a unique situation. :)

The misplaced line is there. A simple cut and paste it in at the correct place followed by a spot PL will take care of it.

Story one I certainly see possible as a stand alone project. Story 3 is only 2 chapters so it may be best to keep it with this story 2.

It will take a little investigation to figure out who the voices likely belong to. That's going to take some work.

I'll leave it alone for now and see if anyone is willing to at least take on story 2 as a DR. When my schedule clears and I have time to start on scripts, and if nobody has yet claimed it, I'll take it. I can't remember ever having a DR make it to the abandoned projects list. I'm glad you found it. I hate to see good work go to waste. :thumbs:
