The 128kb file does not have the correct tags. I didn't notice it until I was uploading it, but I figured I could fix them in the backroom after the deriving finished up.

It only fixes the entries on the page , not those on the file :(

The cover for this project changed.
I don't know how to change the M4B.
Could someone please help.

In the Errors thread, one of the listeners pointed out that part of chapter two of The Loss of the SS Titanic hadn't been properly edited. That's https://librivox.org/the-loss-of-the-ss-titanic-by-lawrence-beesley/

There were four or five corrections that needed to be made, amounting to something over a minute. The chapter is now 39 min 32 sec (from 41 min 01 sec). TriciaG has uploaded the corrected chapter to archive.org.

An M4B file was created from the first version. Would it be worth the effort to upload a corrected M4B?

The reader for this project noticed a repeat in section 11 after cataloging. Corrected section 11 has been uploaded to Archive and is currently deriving. Posting here in case that sort of change matters to the team here.

[And I will post separately in the cover thread about the rederive somehow messing up how the cover shows on the Archive page.]

Thanks MaryAnn.
It's because it was catalogued before Archive's latest changes which are fine until you rederive it. now it needs a a title_yymm_itemimage file to stop it using the pdf

I'm about to rederive an old project. Is Cruise_1606.jpg good enough, or how should it be named now to prevent the problem?

Tricia,

Use Cruise_1606_itemimage.jpg instead.

As an alternate you can edit the file type to Item Image on the Internet Archive metadata page.

This project, https://librivox.org/dodos-daughter-by-e-f-benson/ , has had chapter 8 replaced. The original chapter 8 was from another book in the series. I don't know if you also need to update the duration, but it is now around 9:22:04.
