I've updated the MW - you need to switch the assigned to Ready to PL - there's dropdown there you can use to switch between assigned to ready to PL - this will display on your DPL's page so he knows to come.
He will then shift it to either PL OK or PL Notes
If things need fixing you will fix them and make the dropdown ready for spot PL and hopegully then he'll come back and listen and set it to PL OK.
It's actually really handy for everyone :D

The sections I have finished constitute about an hour and a half of proof-listening, so I'll wait to upload any more until Lomond gets an opportunity to proof-listen them all.

The first thing you need to do, Mark, is to no longer refer to it as "aging". It feels so much better, at least for me, to refer to it as chronologically progressing.

For some reason, I was not getting any notice that these were ready for me. I will get to them anon.

Greetings -

Sections 117 and 118 are now shown to be PL OK.

Wow! After all this time, I still remember your voice, its cadence and diction and your use of voices.

Curious. Why is the print under the MW so small? Is that on my end?

Should we be using the title "The Basic Bible" or "The Bible In Basic English"?

Well, apparently, the two names refer to their publication dates and the committees that worked on them. "The Basic Bible" is the American version, while "The Bible in Basic English" was done by a British committee 15 years later, and its copyright status is unclear. "The Basic Bible" was placed into the public domain and was given to Hathitrust. At least that's my understanding.

As for the small print, I don't know. It's always been pretty small as far as I can recall.

Chronologically progressing....I like that!!!! :mrgreen:

The small print is supposed to be deleted but since Genres and keywords were added to the template I thought it good for everyone to know what is going into the database so they can tell me if they want it changed.

Not wanting to be left out, Ruth, Zephaniah, and Haggai have joined the PL OK efforts.

We are off to a good start, Mark.

Thank you, Lomond! I hope I didn't overwhelm you with too much listening! :mrgreen:
