[SOLVED] Readiness for BCing?

Hi,
I am trying to figure out if I am experienced enough to start my own project. I’m currently DPLing Woodcraft Boys at Sunset Island and have recorded portions of The Chinese Kitten, The Story of John Wesley, and the dramatic reading of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. I am also just about to do the title role of Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. Does anyone know, is this enough LibriVox experience to begin my own project? Thanks,
-JayKitty76

You mean, you want to do a Solo?

For my feeling, yes, you have enough experience. You can handle the MW because you did DPL and you participated in some projects, so, go ahead and have fun! :thumbs:

Yay thanks! I was planning to do a group project of Tom Sawyer once I’m finished with all my current projects. Thanks for the quick feedback!

A soloist is automatically the BC or coordinator of his/her project. This means they will maintain the magic window. But a book coordinator (BC) can be the person who sets up a group project and then oversees it, acknowledging claims for sections, putting the claims into the magic window, and things like that. Neither is very complicated or hard. You definitely can be a BC! Just ask for help from your MC (meta coordinator - magic beings who appear from nowhere). I have a video of being a BC but need to check it for currency.

Thank you philchenevert. I’ve watched several of your YouTube videos for Audacity and they are very helpful. Thank you for your assistance in this topic.

How do I see the uploads on the server for my project? Or is that just available to MCs?

You ask an admin to do it for you - or I think you can edit your own post to add it to the title (it's not a toggle; it's just text).

Oh, lookie there! It has been done for you! 8-)
