Section 1 is now PL OK!
Think Kazbek has addressed your question pretty well.
Feel free to refer to Tina's solo project 儿女英雄传 (where I also do the PL'ing) viewtopic.php?f=12&t=77548
if you're unsure about the conventions here!

Hello, I did another recording at 00:50.
Link here: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/msw025_shuxiang_du_gx_128kb.mp3
I decided to do it in my home dialect(Southwestern Mandarin, Chengdu dialect) because the poem is about a great person who once lived in the area, and the poet also lived there. But for authenticity, I searched up some stuff on the net and tried to recreate older versions of Chengdu dialect, which has evolved rapidly over the past century, so this is quite a bit different from the dialect actually spoken in Chengdu nowadays...... Apologize beforehand to any PLs out there
Section 2 - See PL Notes
The volume is 92.2 dB - slightly out of Checker's targeted range (86-92 dB) - so it's a "pass with warnings".
What I usually do as a reader is let this app check my recording before uploading. An alert would pop up if anything's wrong, be it volume or format. https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Checker
You can also check the volume right within Audacity (if that's the app you're using), while using the amplify/de-amplify function. There is a plug in for that! https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Measuring_Volume_within_Audacity
There's also some background noise, which you can fix using "noise reduction" in Audacity.
Content-wise, everything looks good!
As for the accent issue, I happen to have non-volunteer friends who speak the dialect and are glad to lend a hand.
But not every single time in the future (if this is going to be a regular occurrence), though - they're still students with really hectic schedules!
