  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/2516
  • 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!

OK, this is set up.

As you probably realized, you do not put yourself in as translator when starting a new project. (You don't put yourself into that template at all, aside from your name as the writer of the intro/summary.) ;)

If no one comes along to DPL, I may be persuaded to do it. But first I'll give others the opportunity. :)

Thanks! I didn't add myself as translator. I edited it out when it appeared, then it came back again. ??

Good day!

Weird. Maybe it's some sort of intermittent bug. *shrug*
