thats great!

to be able to sign you up, i need to know under which name you would like to be credited :)

in the meantime, could you please read the guide for proof listeners, and you will get access to the magic window, heres how that works i am the bc and i do everything in that article, you only have to use the pl drop-down menu (see below), but it will still be good for you to know how the magic window works :)
Changing the status of a section

This is a new feature which eliminates the need to type “PL Needed” and “PL OK” etc in the Notes field. This information will now show in the last column of the new MW.
To change the status of a section, click in the status column. Use the down arrow to expand the list and then click on the appropriate status.
(Alternate method: Click once to expand the list, then type the first letter of the status (i.e., P for PL OK) and hit enter to save.)

How to use the new status designations:

Open - no reader assigned
Assigned – section assigned to a reader
Ready for PL – file uploaded by the reader and ready for proof listening
See PL Notes – proof listener has listened to the file and posted edits for the reader
Ready for spot PL – The reader has made the requested edits and the file is ready for the proof listener to spot check
PL OK – file is ready to catalog

Note: The section compiler rows will not change color. When you go back to the forum, Open sections will appear blue in the Magic Window and PL OK will be green. Ready for PL and Ready for Spot PL will have blue text, and See PL Notes will have red text.

Not quite sure what to say - what's the usual? My name is Katina, and I use my Forum name across the internet for other usernames.

I read all that information - thanks for sharing! I feel more like I know what I'm doing :wink: I do have one question: "We try to catch things like long silences" Thus far I've just been basing "long" as in my personal experience as a listener - "would I think something happened, did the computer freeze etc.? If yes, it's 'long' if no the pause is satisfactory." Does that sound about right? As a BC do you have a set number of seconds you prefer pauses go no longer than? I saw in some other topics the BC would say "pauses no longer than __."

I listened to "Pearls" "Rosa, Dying" and "Sunrise from the Mountains" They are all fantastic and ready to go! Thanks Larry!

thats exactly the right way to look at 'long' pauses. i wouldnt give you a certain number of seconds, since the context can make a difference. if the pause is in the middle of the sentence, three seconds can be 'long', but if it is the pause between two paragraphs, where the second paragraph starts with "the next day...", an artsy break of three seconds is perfectly fine and often necessary.

put 'long' pauses you found strange into the pl notes -- if the pause is not excessive and the reader disagrees with your assessment, he or she is not obliged to edit.

under which name you will be credited in the catalog is totally up to you. ill sign you up for now with iamKatina, but i can change this if you like. there was a discussion about this recently, maybe youd like to read: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=55768

now you should be able to log on to the magic window. follow the first time log in instructions in this wiki article: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window and let me know if it works :)
