Kevin,
I added you as co-BC and I will keep an eye out, too.
Have a good day.
-Amy
Thank you!
What? What's that? Why are you shouting?

I'd like to read sections 8, 9 and 10, please
Kathrinee, I am now serving as a co-BC while Elsie is busy studying and I would like to know if you are still interested in recording these sections. I know a lot of time has passed by, so I will certainly understand whatever your decision. It does look like an interesting and important topic, however, and your help will always be much appreciated.

Thanking you in advance.

My name is Kirby Evers
Kirby, I have stepped in as co-BC of this project and am very anxious to be able to share all your hard work here on LibriVox. Did you ever upload your recordings onto our server. (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to transfer any of your files from SoundCloud. And I don't think I would know how to do this anyway! Haha!)

Anxious to hear from you. (I listened to a bit of your recordings and they sound nice!)

Hello Kevin,
I´d still like to record these sections :) I have been superbusy the last month, but hope I will have some time over the Christmas break!

Kevin,
Will you also be acting as DPL or are you looking for help there?

EDIT: I know you are busy trying to finish a few projects before the first so I PLed Rita's two sections.

Rita,
Sections 11 and 12 are both PL OK. Great work!

Optional note for section 12:
Increase volume to match from 15:16 - 16:28

Thanks, Linny! I updated the MW with Rita's claims and your PL results.
I have added you as DPL so you can access it now, too. If you don't want to be DPL, I will remove you.

Has any decision been made regarding Kirby's claims/recordings? I don't quite understand where we are with this.

I will PM him, of course, and try to understand what he means by soundcloud and all of that.

Of course, there are other sections we can work on in the meantime, but I'm trying to think ahead.

Hi Kevin,
His recording on soundcloud aren't mp3s. I pmed him to see if he will upload them to us as mp3s. He did Sections 1-5. I re-opened his other claims. Hopefully we will hear back. If not, the sections can be opened up again. Do you agree?

Yes, of course.

I'm looking forward to doing a chapter or two myself in the new year.

Thank you!

I've bumped the volume a bit on the section you indicated. I hope this does the trick.

It was just bugging me so I redid it. Hope this fixes it.
