We've made a change to the structure of the subject line for projects which do not already have someone who has volunteered to listen to all the chapters - a Dedicated Proof Listener or DPL.

All projects which have a DPL look like this: [GENRE/LANGUAGE] Title by Author - mc

For those without a DPL, there should be a tilde at the beginning of the subject line:
~[GENRE/LANGUAGE] Title by Author - mc

You may volunteer in the project thread to proof-listen just a chapter or two in projects like this.

Please still use the Listeners Wanted forum to advertise for PL's/DPL's. This is not a replacement to that system, but a small supplement.

The purpose of this change is to make it easier at a glance to see which projects have no DPL right from the thread listings. People who want to quickly PL a few sections wouldn't have to search quite as hard to find available sections to PL.

(And, as always, projects with DPL's will have their name listed at the top of the Magic Window in the project thread itself.)

Any questions or comments? Please post them here.

I live in the Philippines and when I post something it takes a day for me to get an answer ( like volunteering). Do I have to wait until I get an okay before I listen to a recording?

No, people often don't . If they have a spare bit of time at that moment it is better to do it then than not at all. And in the rare cases when 2 people do it , well the world doesn't end (It hasn't so far anyhow)

Don't worry so much about making "mistakes" - everyone makes them, that is how we all have learnt. Everyone comes here with different areas of expertise, all the books are different and have different ways of handling them and there are as few rules as possible - except the major one "Be Nice" and you fit that rule beautifully :D.

If a see a file that needs a PL listener how do I sign up to do it, do I just listen and write what needs to be fixed in the comments or do I have to be assigned first?

Thanks,
GenesisMyers :help:

If the project already has a DPL, then you should let that person do the listening. But if the project does not, and you are ready to DPL, then ask if you can. Just post in the project thread, the Book Coordinator will let you know that you can start!

As a DPL, you have a handy table where you can see at a glance what sections you need to PL.

- Go to your reader catalog page (or click on your name link in any magic window in which you're assigned sections as a reader)
- In the gray box at the top which gives all your reader information, there's a link, "Reader section details." Click on it.
- The Reader View tab shows the sections you're assigned as a reader. The PL View tab shows the sections you're assigned as DPL.

You can bookmark the Reader Section Details page, but you'll have to click the PL View tab when you want to view it.

Hi Tricia & team

I have a question about what's stated above: "For those without a DPL, there should be a tilde at the beginning of the subject line:
~[GENRE/LANGUAGE] Title by Author".

I found that's right, but more than once, browsing 'tilde' ads I have discovered they actually have a DPL or PL already (btw, either stated clearly in the MW or sometimes not that clear (?) meaning, no name inscribed, but some recorded chapters are marked pl-ok).

Any thoughts how can I find the relevant ones, i.d. those who really still need a DPL/PL?
Maybe that tilde should be removed once the project has its DPL? :hmm:


Thanks

Yes, they should be. But it's a manual thing, and it can be error prone. :)

The ones with some things marked PL OK but no DPL listed in the magic window itself - those don't have a DPL and still should have the tilde. So those are open for you to volunteer as DPL.

The only other way to tell if a project has a DPL or not (aside from combing through all the project threads) is to hang out in Listeners & Editors Wanted and look at the pinned threads there. However, sometimes these don't get moved right away when a DPL volunteers - again, humans are error prone. ;)

At least for the time being, there is another alternative . . . we are trialing a report listing all projects without an assigned DPL. It's available on the Project Status Table page in the Wiki here: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Project_Status_Table

Creating the tables is a manual process and its only done every week or so, so be aware that the info may be a bit out of date.
