All our non-forum content is public domain. Our forum content is not public domain, but it is a public forum; the wiki pages are not precisely public domain either. I enjoy fine distinctions, not to argue about them, but just to notice them. I like line drawings, too. :D

Oh! Well, if they *are* public domain, then I think we should oughta put a notice on those pages explaining that they are, so folks who offer up a tutorial or suchlike know clearly from the outset that they've just donated it to the public, stringlessly.

I'd assumed they were exactly the same as the forums.

i have no idea ;-) ... but i think the wiki (how-to etc info related to LV) is different from the forum, which is "personal" public communication.

i think i meant that editing would go much, much easier AND solo readings always go better in terms of coordinating & ending. certainly.

rita1075 has just sent me a pm and I must admit that up until now I hadn't realised just what a big deal Bloomsday was to so many people.
Various people had mentioned this project to me and my aversion to Ulysses had made me veer away from it even tho' I was intrigued by the special nature of the project.

As a result I realise very much that I need to ditch what I was going to do and should feature this project in this week's community podcast.

Sooooo
Could I make a special plea for an audio contribution from anyone who has taken part in this project so I can sew it together into a celebration of the completion of the project.

I was very pleased to be a part of this wonderful production! 8) A great job done by all!

If we DO do Ulysses again, I believe it's important that it have no "special rules," that is, we should keep to the 1% rule. On a second go, a "serious" (normal LV) recording would be of greater value than producing an interpretive "novelty."



(And it would no doubt be produced more quickly, particularly if broken into subsections for more readers to participate.)

.
Why would that be important? I think it would be nice to have a 'serious' reading, but it would be equally nice to have other (even more) experimental versions.

Alas, I disagree. I'd never replace any of these recordings. Any additional recordings should be just that, additions.

However, I see no problem in getting a 'serious' collab project done in, say, six months, with sections divided appropriately and an enthusiastic, organised BC and possibly a bit of headhunting. :)

Thank you, Dan. Do they have forum names, too? If not, I can include them in the catalogue page but not in the admin. Well, I could, with made-up forum names.

They do not have forum names, I believe I'm the only one of the group who does.

sorry I did not mean "replace"

I meant, it would be nice to have a clean reading of the book, as well as the chaotic one we have right now.

And with that, I do agree. :)

Thanks, Dan. I'll get that done later.
