As you know, the Book and Meta Coordinators need to know from each reader under which name (and personal URL, if applicable) s/he would like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue.

Although all BCs ask for this information, often readers forget to send it together with their files. I have created a wiki with all readers' names and their catalogue info, that I am aware of.

Book Coordinators: would you update this wiki with any other readers you have for your projects?

Readers: would you make sure that the information we have about you there is correct (update if necessary)?

In future, we can all just refer to this wiki if we're missing a name. :)

Here's the link to the wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/ListOfReadersCatalogNames

I'm not a book co-ordinator, but I am a reader currently working on a solo project of the book "The Good Soldier". My name is Richard Grove and my website is http://www.rgrove.com

I go by the screen name of gToon. If you could add me to your list, I'd appreciate it. :D

I'm adding you now, Richard -- my first time editing the new wiki :)

Thanks Kara.

Perhaps I should have made this clearer: the new LibriVox wiki is a communal effort - everyone can edit and update any page! :)

However, if you're nervous or don't feel like doing it, just post here and someone will add you.

Sorry, I should have read more closely. I'll go to the wiki and see if I can't figure out how to add my information. Thanks for your quick response, Gesine. :D

I've done that, Heather.

I've added all I have from the Short Poetry Collections 3 and 4, except for Robert Garrison and Eugene Pinto ... I'm not sure how to handle him.

Looks like Robert and Eugene are in there as they should be. I've tweaked a few things just from the top of my head but I'll go through later more thoroughly and add people from weekly poetry projects and other things I have coordinated.

This is great! Thanks, Gesine! I just added a few of the Fables folks who weren't already listed.

I also should have mentioned this: I linked to this page from the List of Volunteers page (which is on the 'wiki homepage') - here: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/ListOfVolunteers

This may not be the best place and I may not have done it right, so if someone wants to move it, please do!

I noticed a number of names and pseudonyms were being highlit as links.

A few days ago, I asked Squiddhartha about "{{{}}}" appearing in the middle of names and he said that wiki interprets adjacent lower+upper case letters as links, so you need to separate them with this mess if you want them to be displayed as ordinary text (he did mention another way to do this, but I couldn't get it to work):

http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1404&start=30

I've added the curly brackets to all the highlit names I noticed.

Please watch out for this if you're going to add a Mc or Mac, or a name with mixed letters.

Thanks,

Peter

In addition to {{{}}}, you should be able to use `` (two *backward* quotes -- the key is usually in the upper left of the keyboard, along with the tilde ~).
