I would like to claim section 49.
This is my first recording and not sure which is the most used method of listing myself? gtlldavis or Greg Davis?
I'm also new at using this type forum, so if you get more than one message, forgive me.
Thank you in advance for your patience!
Greg

Welcome! I'd love to have you on this project! :D

It's up to you how you choose to be listed. Many people do use their real name (I am one of them), but it's also perfectly normal to just stick with a user name or pseudonym. Some people use only their first name. I'm not sure I could tell you which is most common, but all are fine. If you do plan on including a credit, like "Read by Greg Davis," for example, in your recordings, then that's probably also how you'd want to be listed in the catalogue. That way, listeners who like your recordings will be able to find more of them easily. :wink:

Edit: Also, let me know if you have a website or blog you'd like linked to your catalogue page.

Lets go with Greg Davis.
I'm 70 and proficient with the internet but not a wiz kid, my webpage isn't finished yet but in the works.
thanks

Great! I can assign that to you shortly, when I get home. I'll also try to PL this tonight or tomorrow. What is the run time, please?

Thanks, Greg. The MW is updated, and I did assign section 50 to you. You're welcome to begin on it whenever you're ready, but if you'd like to wait until you receive feedback on your first one, I understand. I hope to have some feedback for you by this evening.

I started reading section 50 and I found a few places where instead of a name he had ______, no letters or abbreviations. How do you want them read? Maybe the word (blank)?
Looks like things are shaping up!

Yes, just say "blank." In other places, and you may have already seen those, he may say something like Mr. G_____ or Mr. T____y. Those you would just read as "Mr. G" or "Mr. T Y," respectively.

I just finished listening to section 37, and am about to start yours. But I got distracted by a reference in section 37 that Rev. Asbury made to a book he'd been reading. Look! Isn't it interesting??? https://archive.org/details/cu31924028008765 :lol:
