An excellent suggestion Nemo. I will study how to do this and modify the first post tomorrow. In the meantime, feel free to use the abbreviated disclaimer.
EDIT: I checked this out and have decided it would be best to just continue using only the official disclaimer. Spelling out all the various variations of intros for different lengths would be much to confusing, at least to me.

Hi thanatos and a big welcome to LibriVox! :D I have assigned those sections to you but before you record any of them, please make and upload a 1 minute test to be sure your recording set up is OK. Instructions can be found in our Wiki and in the first post of this project but Here is a video that may help too: How to Make your 1 minute test.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlaRY_-bcfs and then How to Upload your 1 minute test How to Upload your 1 minute test

(You may post the link to your test in this forum and I will see it much more quickly)

I also recommend Getting To Know our Forums Getting To Know Our Forums :thumbs:

Here is section 43, The Fairy Island:
https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/bookofelvesandfairiesforstorytellingandreadingaloud_43_olcott_128kb.mp3

It is 02:32 long.

(I'm not sure if I pronounced 'Tylwyth Teg' correctly; if anyone has any suggestions I'd happily change it.)

‘By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense-desires,
Is not born again into this world.’

Whoops. I did indeed forget to shorten the file name. Thanks for those contributions. I'll put them into the magic window for proof listening.
EDIT: I will shorten the file name but you don't need to do anything, I will fix everything in validation. Now when do I get my prize??? :roll:
