Thank you :thumbs:

One little thing, your file name is slightly off, it should be all in one word missminkssoldier. This is not a big deal and i can edit this during cataloging, so just for future reference :) thank you!

Here is Section 5 -- 23:59
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/miss_minks_soldier_5_hegan_128kb.mp3
Here are your notes:

15:36: Between 'only to see a deserted deck' and 'to go through with it all again' you're missing a sizeable section.
23:52: Ending silence is a tad too long. You should aim for 5 seconds, and you've got 7 seconds.

Also, as Carolin said, the file name should be missminkssoldier_05_rice_128kb

And while I'm here, a couple of observations:
  • You could not write a Chinese character like that nowadays...
  • You correctly fixed the at least three errors (I checked, 'queque' was in the original, but 'be' for 'he' and 'apace' for 'space' were both transciption errors)
  • Oh, and if you're not aware, in this instance, 'queue' is an archaic word for 'a plait of hair worn at the back'

Re silence at the end of the recording, the instructions say "5 to 10 seconds."

The PL says that there is a missing section. Can you guide me on how to fix that? Do I simply insert it and send the same file (with the corrected bookname, sorry about that)? Do I comment that it replaces the old file, etc.? Thanks.

In the first post, it says:

"There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording."

As for updating the file, you'll need to record the missing text, insert it into the file at the right place, then upload the new file, and let us know the new file length, and the link.
