[SOLO] Maid Marian by Thomas Love Peacock (1785 - 1866).
To follow ( Martin Geeson)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/966
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I thought I had posted this in the Launch Pad. It is a new solo. I have already completed the first chapter and am hoping for an MC and DPL.

Could an admin please move the project to the Launch forum...

You're most welcome. It's all set up. If I've forgotten anything or you need anything let me know. We'll stay here for a day or so in hopes of getting a DPL.

Have fun! :)

Good to see you back too! I wasn't sure if this was your first or if you had been doing some short works in group projects. One more maintenance thing for you to do is to change the status to "Ready for PL" in the MW.

Thanks for joining us, Dave. Your MW access has been granted and as we have a full roster I'll move us to Going Solo!

Just checking in here because of our server crash of Oct. 13 which rolled the forums and database back to Sep. 15.

If you posted anything after Sep. 15 in this thread it is gone. If you uploaded any files they will need to be reuploaded. I do hope you kept them. Here is the link to the info thread if you want to follow it:

I'm doing a sort-through of all my active projects. It's been a while since we heard from you Martin. Can you just post once to let me know that you're still interested in this project?
