Hello,

I'm pretty new here, but I have a small suggestion for an edit to the "Newbie Guide to Recording" page on the LV wiki. Would it be possible to insert a link to the "LibriVox disclaimer" wiki page on the line below?

Quote:
Intros/outros: Chapter and title, LibriVox "disclaimer," full book title and author's (and translator's) name, chapter number and title, and any other important intro information. (It's a little different for poems!) ... text ... End of such-and-such, etc.


I would have put this in the discussion page on the wiki, but that appears to be locked. Anyways, I just thought it might have been a good idea since "what is the LV dislcaimer?" was a question that I asked myself while reading the page, and since there is already another page on the wiki dedicated towards answering that specific question.

All the wiki is locked - we did it after it was hacked and filled with links to Russian porn sites,
The wording of the discaimers varies a little depending on projects so people do need to get it from the first post of the project they are reading for each time

If that's the case, then shouldn't the "LibriVox disclaimer" page (which appears to be an authority on the disclaimer due to the wiki being locked) disclose that the details and precise wording will vary? If not, I think it would still be beneficial to include the link in the guide anyways, since this is likely the first thing a volunteer will read before they look at individual projects.

The disclaimer doesn't need to be linked in the Newbie Guide, since the information for each project is directly in the project. The disclaimer wiki page will not help the newbie figure out which intro wording to use on the project they're going to read for.

However, I did just tweak the Newbie Guide a little, to remove this portion from the bullet points: "All this information is in the project's top post; if you can't find or don't understand something, ask the Book Coordinator (BC) or Meta Coordinator (MC)." It is now its own paragraph, making it more likely to be noticed.

Thanks for mentioning it. :)

That sounds like a good change. Thanks for the prompt replies.
