  • 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!

Hola Mario,

I am happy to set this up for you, but I notice that the text you link to only has the very first page scanned, the rest is transcribed to html.
We prefer full scans of our books for copyright reasons, and there are these (and more) on archive:

https://archive.org/details/lahijadeladelant00saloguat/page/n3/mode/2up (1866 edition)

https://archive.org/details/lahijadeladelan00seudgoog (1889 edition)

If you could read from one of these, we would very much prefer that! Just let me know.
Cheers, Ava.

Hello Availle, thanks for the quick reply. I understand the concern, and agree to read from one of your recommendations. I will select https://archive.org/details/lahijadeladelant00saloguat/page/n3/mode/2up (1866 edition). Please let me know what the next steps are.
Thanks and regards.

Okay, your MW is ready!

This is your first solo, isn't it?
Well, you have now been upgraded to "tender of the Magic Window" with lots of new responsibilities! Here is a quick how-to, let me know if you have other questions:
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Soloists:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window

Since you're reading this in Spanish, you should use the Spanish intro/outro as given here (Just add the appropriate title and author names)
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=LibriVox_disclaimer#Spanish

Let's stay here over the weekend, we may catch ourselves a DPL; but you can definitely start recording and uploading.

Have fun! :D
Cheers, Ava.

Thanks Availle! Yes, it's my first solo, and I am very excited. I've started recording, and will certainly review your recommendations.

I see you managed the MW, well done! :clap:

As for the notes, all I need in the end is the length, and there's no need for the italics either (won't show up on the catalog page anyway).

Also, even though you're now in a solo and can access the MW, you should still post in the thread when you've uploaded something. Helps the DPL see that there's something to do, and I know that you're still working on your book. :wink:
Cheers, Ava.

Please put the link and the length into the MW as you did with the first one. This is your job now :wink:

All you need to post here is a note like "chapter 1 is up" or something.

Sorry for being complicated. :D
Cheers, Ava.

It's quite the learning curve in the beginning, you're doing just fine don't worry! :)

Let's move us to "Going Solo" in the meanwhile.

    Hi Rachel, I am not familiar of the process to assign a DPL, and if Availle agrees, I will be very happy if you can join us.
