Now that I cleared up the mic issue, I re-re-recorded Chapter 0 and hoped we might be able to use that instead. Would that make a lot of extra work in your case?
well, since it's barely 3 minutes, the "extra" work in this case is not very significant
so if you are really unhappy with the quality, then yes, you can reupload it and I'll listen to it again. To me the audio sounded fine though.
And indeed, usually we have a policy that once a section is PL approved, the reader should not reupload a new version. This is, as you suspected, because of the extra work involved. Here it doesn't matter much, but with chapters of almost an hour's length, this extra work would be very significant and we try to avoid such extra strain on time and work.
We also try to prevent that some readers may never be happy with their recording and keep reuploading
So we usually ask them to only reupload when they are happy with a section and not before that.
That said, of course it's up to the reader/DPL discretion. If both parties are ok with it, then it's not forbidden, but it's not encouraged, for the above mentioned reasons.
So bottom line: yes you can reupload Section 0
Third time I will listen to that one, I will know it by heart soon
But I hope you are happy with all the other sections. Did you use the new microphone there already ? Good thing you noticed it immediately.
