    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!

I can MC for you. I'll be back in a moment with your MW.

EDIT: There you go. I shorted the file name. It's automatically entered but should only be considered a suggestion. I matched vol 1 that is in the catalog. The automatic one was awfully long. :shock:

I also took the dates out of the intro/ending. It's also an auto populate thing.

Do you have a DPL lined up? I added a tilde in case you needed one. We can stay on the launch pad for a couple of days to see if one claims you before we move to going solo.

I'll add a note now to the multi volume posting.

So far there is no French, no singing, and no large numbers.
It's a little disappointing, isn't it?
