Haunted London by Walter Thornbury (1828 - 1876).
All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/haunted-london-by-walter-thornbury/

London: one of the oldest and most populous cities in the world. Surely it holds a few secrets within its ancient walls and the stories of ghostly presences abound. ( Lynne Thompson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/41580
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thank you!

Edit: It looks like this is your first time as a DPL. I've added you to the list of proof listeners.
I suggest you read the wiki guide, if you haven't already: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Guide_for_Proof-listeners
There is a very useful quiz at the bottom, which I thoroughly recommend.

In order to access the MW, follow the guidelines for BCs... http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window
You will mostly be concerned with the drop-down on the right-hand side.
Any questions, just ask.

Thanks for getting me set up. I did some PL'ing for Michele Fry last summer but this is my first DPL
adventure. And you are right, the quiz in the PL guide is quite helpful.

I've listened to your section 0. Everything is fine except the checker gives the volume level as 87.8.
Is that close enough or do you want to boost is slightly?

You will find me far less exacting than Michele - she tends to ask for word perfect PLing, whereas I ask for standard (which means you don't even need to read along with the text).
As for volume, anything between 87 and 91 is fine (and gets evened out during cataloguing). The latest version of Checker is even more lax, allowing 86-92.

Ah, I thought I saw something that said 89+-1. Now that you mention it, the checker didn't complain, just told me what it was. As soon as I get myself properly logged in I'll mark section 0 as PL OK. :thumbs:
