I know I can get done the tale of Ulysses and the Cyclops by the end of this weekend, yet I'm afraid the section it would occupy will already be taken. Is there a way I can ensure that the work I'll do on this story has a spot in this collection?

Hi, Nathan! Welcome to LibriVox - I'm very happy to help get your first recording incorporated into the project! :)

Thank you for including all the information needed for the MW, and making a good file name. This story will get PL'd in the morning.

I need to get your Catalog Reader Page made. This is the page that the general public sees when they look at your name from the published audiobooks. Let me make sure what you want me to use as your name on that?

Some of us use our real names, others use their forum work names (the one your posts uses), others make up another penname.

Regarding making sure your second story won't miss getting a section:

It would be really strange if all of the remaining sections fill up before this weekend. Even if they do, though, I will open Collection 7 as soon as the last section here gets a story loaded. This is a popular collection with readers, so I make sure we always have one running. Linny and a couple other MCs like overseeing them, too, so we never have to wait long for someone to activate the new collection's MW for us. :)

So - no worries! Even if we have an unusual super-run on this collection's sections, your story will absolutely get a spot. 8-)

Hey!

Well I wouldn't mind being mentioned by my real name, Nathan McDonald.

Thanks! :thumbs:

Super :)

Here is your personal Reader Page: Nathan McDonald.

You'll see that it lists all the projects you are a part of, both complete and in-progress. It also has a link to the lists of all the sections that are assigned to you for recording and/or prooflistening. Very handy!

Yes! This is a very nice addition to the collection!

You're a natural, Nathan. Love your voices, and this recording is very fine. :clap:

The only edit needed is to bring the volume down a bit into the decibel parameters LibriVox has to use. Right not it comes in at 93.8 dB. It's an easy fix. :)

I'm only familiar with the Audacity software. If that's what you're using, here's how to fix the decibels:
  • Open the recording
  • Click Control-A to select the entire track
  • From the Effects drop-down menu, select Amplify
  • Type -1.5 in the top box (ignore everything else)
  • Click OK
Now you can re-export the file to mp3 and upload the new file the same way you did the first time. Don't forget to post again. :)

Hello! I've recorded and am editing my recording, but I'm not confident that I introduced and closed it correctly. The story is "The Mysterious Servant: The Story of a Young Man Who Respected the Dead," and it's from "A Book of Finnish Fairy Tales and Folk Tails" by Parker Fillmore. I think I introduced it correctly after listening to a few examples of other recordings. At the end, though, should I say "End of The Mysterious Servant: The Story of a Young Man Who Respected the Dead by Parker Fillmore," or should I repeat the title of the larger work? I appreciate the guidance!

Maddie

Hi, Maddie - ending with only the name of the story itself is absolutely fine. You won't need to include the source book's title. :)
