I am! Does that disqualify me :oops:
Absolutely not & welcome to Librivox(lv). I hope that you will enjoy it. There are alot of wonderful people who volunteer at lv & they seem to be most willing to help when requested.

First you need to take the 1-minute test:
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording

I have also included a section that is well worth your reading.

I will keep in my mind which sections you would like to record. First you must do the 1-minute test to ensure that you are technically set, correctly. Once you have passed that please do let me know and then I will put you in the mw as the reader.
Hi April,

I FINALLY passed the 1 minute test and I am ready to be assigned my sections to begin reading :D :clap: :P

Stories from the Trenches: Funny Tales the Soldiers Tell by Carleton Case (1857 - ?).

Carleton B. Case is well known for wit and humor, as the title of the book leads one to believe this book will follow suit. This book is in the public domain in the U.S. according to bibrec. (April6090)
    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/49653
    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!

      END of recording
      • At the end of the section, say:
        "End of [Chapter #]"

        Note: If your section has multiple stories please leave ~1.5 seconds between stories.
      • If you wish, say:
        "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of Stories from the Trenches: Funny Tales the Soldiers Tell, by Carleton Case."

      There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The latest version of Audacity is recommended for noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3
      storiesfromthetrenches_##_case_128kb.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is the section number (e.g. storiesfromthetrenches_01_case_128kb.mp3)

MM, would you mind editing your last post to remove the MW and other information? It is a little confusing to me.
Sunday is a good PL day for me.

Hi !

I'm sorry I cannot say I know what the "MW" is? However, no I do not mind making any edits needed!

Thanks!

My apologies! I forgot you are new to our membership.

The 'MW' is the Magic Window, that funny chart-like thing towards the beginning of every thread.

Let's forget about your worrying about any edits to your previous posts for now.

I'm looking forward to hearing your work. I bet it will be great!

Hello I apologize for not explaining the mw better. Kevin has explained it well though, thank you Kevin.

This is how it breaks down:
I am the bc (book coordinator); I posted the book so I am the person who okays a reader for whichever selection(s) they choose to read once they pass the 1-minute test it is theirs to read.

Kevin is the Dpl (dedicated proof listener); he listens to each section once the reader has posted it to this thread and posted the time it is as well. He will then mark it pl(proof listener) okay or list the edits that should be made for it to be pl okay.

Linny is the Mc (Master coordinator); she has knowledge to help with any issues that may crop up once she has set up the mw & people are reading sections. She is also the person who "closes" the book once all the sections are pl okay.
Then of course there are the readers.

All are necessary for each book on Librivox.

I can put the posted finished sections into the mw and mark it that is ready to be pled. Actually I do think that Kevin & Linny can do that as well.

I do hope the above information is pleasing for you & not overwhelming to read as you do seem like the kind of person who would like to know just a bit more?

Also if Kevin and/or Linny would like to comment on what I have written, please do. :D

As much as 'master coordinator' sounds interesting MC actually stands for Meta coordinators. The name comes from metadata, or MCs. We provide help and advise Book Coordinators, and take over the files with the completed recordings (soloists are also Book Coordinators in this sense, as they prepare their own files for the Meta coordinators). The files are then prepared and uploaded to the LibriVox catalogue and Internet Archive, in a lengthy and cumbersome process.
