Edited and revised chapter 6, thanks.

Chapter 6 - The Stubtails Run Away - See PL Notes

The ending silence is now just about 1 1/2 seconds. It should be around 5 or just a bit more. Could you add 3.5 seconds of silence (or your room's background noise) to the end and upload again?

I like the voice you gave mother Stubtail.

At ~5:57 your microphone catches a puff of breath on the 'p' in clothespin. This is just a note - something to be careful about in the future. A home made or commercial pop filter in front of the mic - or moving the microphone a bit off to the side so it's not directly in front of your mouth, but still pointing toward it - can help prevent popping 'p's. There was just that one place where I heard you puff into the microphone, so it's nothing to panic about. :-)

Here is the version with added silence at the end.
Thank you for the feedback about the 'puff', I will look into it for future recordings. Glad you liked the voice of the mother!

Chapter 3 - Neddie and the Bee's Nest.
The file name should be neddieandbeckie_03_garis_128kb.mp3 and not neddieandbeckie_3_garis_128kb.mp3.
Everything else about the chapter is fine. Larry, should pianoroll upload this chapter again with the proper file name or will you be able to fix this a publishing time?

Chapter 20 - Beckie and Her Cough Medicine -
The overall volume of this chapter is too low. Checker reports a volume 85.2 dB - it should be somewhere in the 86 - 92 dB range. If you amplify the chapter by 2.5 dB and upload it again it will be fine. (Everything else is OK.) The chapter will be marked See PL Notes until then.

Hi loon. I can fix the filename.

ETA: Link to section 3 is now corrected on the server and in the MW. I went ahead and marked it PL OK since that was the only PL note.

I apologize for my delays. Due to sickness affecting my voice and holidays I have been unable to complete my assigned Chapters. I will be doing them soon hopefully and will submit accordingly. I know i had not hit the "2 month" mark but wanted to give an update as I know the ones I have are some of the few not completed.

Hi! If section 4 is not yet claimed, I would be glad to take it. This will be my first submission to LibriVox, I'll consult the help material and let the appropriate party know if I have questions. Thanks!

Thank you!
I've put you in for these.
Since these are orphaned section that we need to finish the book, we'd like to see fairly quick turn around on them if you can. :)
