I'm afraid I can't work out how to get into the Magic Window. Can you help? (Sorry to be dim - I'm a first-timer on this).

I'll get recording! Could you just point me to how I upload each section?

Carisa has offered to be my DPL. Do I need to do anything?

Everything you need to know is explained in the first post, including where and how to upload. If you still have questions after reading it, let me know.

I've already added Carisa in as your DPL. If you look at the MW, you'll see that she is listed there. When you upload your sections, you can put their links into the MW, making sure to add the run times in the notes section and mark the section Ready for PL. Then post here to notify her that there's something ready to be listened to.

I can't see the mention of Clarisa as the DPL in the Magic Window. Where is it?

On the first page of this thread in the MW, right above the start of the sections, I am marked as the DPL.

I have just uploaded the first part of The Idea of a University. The instructions say I have to post a link here - link to what?

That's not quite it, Andrew. You'll need the full url, not just the last clause of it. The easiest way to do it is to wait until the uploader gives you the hyperlink, then right click on it and choose "copy link address." Then you can paste it in the MW, in the Listen URL box, rather than posting it in the thread. In the notes box, enter the run time. Then you can post in the thread to let Carisa know that it's ready for her.

Nothing has happened since I uploaded the first chapter. Have I done something incorrectly?

Yes. Just uploading it is not enough. You need to link it in the MW. Please see my last reply to you. You may need to refer again to the instructions I gave you at the first, about updating the MW.
