How much experience do you need to be a Proof Listener? Not that I want to be one, just asking for the future if I can't record for some reason. Thanks to anyone who answers!

Not much. Follow the instructions on what to check for, and it's pretty straightforward.

(It takes more experience to be a checker of newbie tests than a DPL/PL.) ;)
Mystery/PulpFic: Dope, by Sax Rohmer
The one that started them all: Self-Help, by Samuel Smiles
Elizabethan Poetry: The Psalmes of David

Oh ok! I started checking newbie tests, thinking that was easier. Maybe I can DPL instead sometime. Now that I think about it, it makes sense. I'll see what I can do. Thanks!

You can proof listen to your duet if you wish by checking each other's posts. But please read the proof listener wiki information.

Ok. I'll see if Noori agrees to DPL each other's reading. I will read the wiki, if I can find it.

The PL info in the wiki is linked in the first post of every project - and the wiki is linked at the top of every forum page :D
