More About Pixie by Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey (1857 - 1917).

Quote:
Not enough information available at the time to write a summary. ( )

  1. Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21122

  2. 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!

    Magic Window:



    BC Admin

  3. The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!
    START of recording (Intro):
    • "Chapter [number] of More About Pixie. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Say:
      "More About Pixie, by Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey. [Chapter]"


    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:
    • "Chapter [number] of More About Pixie by Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey. This LibriVox recording is in the Public Domain."
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"

    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:
      "End of [Chapter]"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of More About Pixie, by Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey. "

    There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

  4. Example filename moreaboutpixie_##_vaizey_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. moreaboutpixie_01_vaizey_128kb.mp3)

  5. Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file. Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
    • You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: maryannspiegel
    • When your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

  6. Any questions?
    Please post below

Hi Judi,
I put it in the MW. Maybe it was just having a bad day. If not, I'm sure MaryAnn can help figure it out.

Judi,

I've checked the settings behind the scenes, and everything looks good.

If you get a screen that says "you don't have permission", click on the "log out" button and then try logging in again.

Sometimes the system bounces us out and we need to log in again, but it doesn't tell us that directly, we need to snoop around to get it to give us a login screen.

MaryAnn

Hi Judi,
I was very confused at first. Great intro for a new character.

Chapter 1 is PL OK.

One optional note for you this time.

1:03 It required all the cheer that the new friend could give to hearten the invalid when once more she was sent back to counterpane land, with a big cage over the affected part to protect it from the bedclothes, and all manner of painful and exhausting dressings to be undergone.
I listened a few times but I hear harden

Happy November! :D
