Tarzan and the Ant Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 - 1950).

All files are available on our catalog page here: https://librivox.org/tarzan-and-the-ant-men-by-edgar-rice-burroughs/
Lord Greystoke, Tarzan of the Apes, is embroiled in thrilling adventures among the tiny, warlike Minunians. ( Matthew Reece)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61837
  • 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!


    Magic Window:



    BC Admin
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    No more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!

    For the second and all subsequent sections, you may optionally use the shortened form of this intro disclaimer:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • Only if applicable, say:
      "[Chapter title]"
    END of recording:
    • At the end of the section, say:

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of Tarzan and the Ant Men, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. "

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

Thanks to you both! It hss been a while since my last solo... Can you please remind me how to access the MW? I tried the BC Admin link, but I am not sure of my credentials and couldn't find them in old threads or messages.
Thanks-
Matt

Try your forum username and forum password combination. If that doesn't work, you can enter only your username and click Forgot password. You will receive an email with a link where you can create a new password and then log in :)

I can never remember that myself. You do go to
https://librivox.org/workflow
and login with a different password but I don't remember what I went through to set that up. I find it helpful use two different browsers and let them keep things sorted out for me - Chrome to fill things in the Magic Window and Firefox to visit forums.librivox.org.

Hmm... tried this, but the password reset email isn't showing up. Not even in my spam folder. :(

Sorry to be a pain!

Update: Ava is helping out with the access issue. Turns out, the email address that workflow was sending reset messages to was an obsolete one. Should be up and running soon. :-)

EDIT: I updated the MW with the link and Ready for PL status, as well as editing the MW meta for the first section. Please let me know if there is more or less I should be doing for each section. :-)

A couple notes -
The file name should be https://librivox.org/uploads/dii/tarzanandtheantmen_01_burroughs_128kb.mp3 - you left out the "_128kb" bit. You should upload the chapter again with the proper filename (unless Diana, our noble MC, jumps in to say this can be fixed at publication time.)
You should include the segment length (24:21 in this chapter) in the Magic Window "Notes" section. I've fixed it for you in chapter 1, you can do it for the rest as you upload them. (The chapter lengths and the calculated total running time are needed for the final published book when it gets into the LV catalog.)

At around 4:33, I hear 'by the scintilating gleams' - the text says 'by the scintillant gleams' (yes, I'm reading along!) - This doesn't change the context of the story a bit, so it's no problem.
At around 13:34, I hear you swallow right between "not brought him good food" and "nor beer" - there couldn't be a better place for a gulp!

I've marked the chapter 'See PL Notes' - I'll change that to 'PL OK' once you're uploaded again with the correct filename (be sure to change the 'Listen URL' in the Magic Window as well).

We're off! A good read and an exciting first chapter. I knew I would like this book - I can't wait for the Ant Men to appear.

OK - filename corrected, uploaded, and updated in the MW. I left the audio issues as-is, but I am happy to edit them if necessary.
Thanks!
