[quote="lubee930" ] Jo, if you (or anyone else) would like to check my fixes, you are more than welcome to do so.[/quote]

I checked and I think they are OK. Good job! Glad you could save the file, and that we're about to finish this project. I want to recommend it to some friends. Any way to remove the "Abandoned solo" tag from the first post? It somehow taints the first impression, and with all this effort expended, it certainly isn't abandoned any more! 8-)

Oh, Michele--glass half full, glass half full!! The "Abandoned solo now adopted as a group project" is nothing but positive in my view! The audio book didn't fade away, but now proceeds!

At any rate, I don't believe that it will appear on the catalog page for the book. It may need to be in the first post of this thread in order to document the history of the project (I see it on other projects as well)--I'm not sure. I'll remove it, but if Jo lets us know that it should remain, then I'll put it back on

And thanks for taking a look at my fixes on Section 02. :)

ETA: And, not to mention, Michele, that sometimes a solo project has to be abandoned when "real life" issues happen for the soloist--no negative connotation there at all.
Kind regards,
Lucretia

"Abandoned" is a negative word, no matter the reason, but it is pretty impressive that abandoned projects can be rescued, and I think knowing the history of a project helps us new BC's see how projects unfold. Even keeping the history, then, I'd still prefer to see something more positive on the masthead like "This abandoned solo has been resurrected by [BC Name]! Please help us complete this project."

Thanks, Jo, for resurrecting this great project for us to work on, and to all who worked on it. I feel like we really accomplished something and I've already sent the link out to several friends.
