Ch. 5, please.

May I read "Part One, Chapter 5." That makes more sense to me, but I will do as I am told. Or maybe "Chapter 5 of Part One"?
I agree, part number, chapter number. I'll put you for chapter 5.

Saying chapter first, and then part, could give the impression that chapter 5 is broken down into multiple pieces.

It seems that we are a bit short of PLers these days. I'll go ahead and move us out of the Launch Pad do that things can get rolling, but you may like to advertise for a DPL over in Listeners Wanted. I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to do it for you.

Do you still need a DPL? If so, I will do it for you. If I DPL, can I still read a section? I would like chapter 6, if possible.

Thanks,

M

Thank you, I'll add you to chapter 6. Did you mean section 1?

It looks like you are requesting based off of the section numbers in the MW, is this correct? One of these was requested just before by another user.

I put your name to two of these, please review and let me know if correct.

Hello
Just checking to see if you were still in need of a DPL, because the tilde is still there.
Let me know!

Yes, I did mean the Chapter 6 in section 1. Thanks. Kevins has graciously volunteered to PL the chapter for me if I DPL the rest.

I have a question regarding tables. There are two tables in Part 1, Ch 6. One is a short one with profit/loss figures based on the value of the slaves. (I cringe as I write this.) The other is a lengthier, even grimmer table, with numbers of individuals shipped and delivered, showing the % loss. Do we include these or not? The numbers do not appear elsewhere. I have no idea how to read a table.

Question on footnotes: Do we exclude the footnotes that only cite references and include those that have explanations, or do we include all, or none? I looked at other projects from the past and it seems that it has been done differently on different projects.

Thanks for any insight.

Hi, I would like to claim “Part 1, chapter 9: Touching the Causes of certain Marvellous Results”, if there is place available.

Sorry, you just missed it. It took me a day or so before I was able to change it.
