I got everyone plugged into Meta, except Marie Harriette Frary won't come up in the search box.
I'm getting senile. I reversed her first and last name fields. :roll: Will fix, then add to the metadata so you don't have to.

Hehe :) That's alright, my brain is mixing things around, too! Weird times distract our processes.

I have a second selection for this collection, this one from Mexico:

The Legend of the Mulata de Cordoba by Thomas Allibone Janvier (1849-1913).

Enjoy! Anita
Anita, I wanted to provide the link for you to the next collection, which your section will start off: Myths and Legends Around the World - Collection 2. It is currently in the Launch Pad, until an MC picks it up for us. (Hopefully Tricia is available, but if not, someone will get us when they can.)

Hello!

I was wondering if I could claim section 11?

Would be only my second recording, but I am committed to quality.

Is section 10 claimed? And if not - can I book it? :-)
Edit - If someone can help me find the text tho. The link on the first post takes me to a slavic mythology book (good read, big fan).

Yes, thank you very much. :) I'm reserving this section for you.

Before I can officially assign it, I'll need to know what name you want us to use for your Reader Page in the Catalog (this is what the public sees when they're looking at audiobooks you have worked on.)

I see you've already had your system approved in the 1-minute test, so you're good to go here!

This project's text linking is quite different from the usual setup, since the sections all come from different texts. For section 10, the text is linked in the Notes column as "Source." But since I went to check it after seeing your comment, I grabbed the URL while I was there:

https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/48908

Welcome to LibriVox, and enjoy this first recording. :D

P.S. And thanks, I've fixed the first post's Source comment for whoever may be interested in the final section.

You bet! Section 10 is officially yours.

Here is your reader page: JustSeth :)

It will list all the projects you're a part of, both finished and in-progress. It also has a link to a list of all the sections that are assigned to you.

Let me know if adjustments are needed :)

Also - I named the author as "folk tale" as in "The Beginning, a folk tale". Sounds better than "by anonymous" but let me know if I need to swap that.

Thx,
S
