Thank you, Kevin. I'm going to open it as a group project. It will be a day or so however. At least chapter 4 needs to be split up. I'm working on word counts and PLing the completed sections now. Were you interested in reading or DPL?

Tricia,
It will take a day or so to get this ready for readers. I'll BC it for a group.

I've changed the first post to be yours, so that you can edit it. What I'd suggest is to make a new first post using the template generator and replace the existing post (keeping the project number for the MW) with the new group project code.

New project code added to the initial post. Initial post updated.

I'm still working on PL and word counts. I'll need to add some sections to the MW but the link to the MW is not working.

Reading, I think would be best right now. I`ve at least one solo project to DPL that is to start any day now and I want to be able to focus on it.

This one was one of my MC projects, so I'm happy to pick it up again. If I can find the time, I might even read some. :wink:

OK, you should have access to the MW now. I marked the existing sections PL OK based on your notes. As long as you upload with the original filename, the links in the MW should be good. I'm leaving the rest of the changes in the MW for you. If you need help with anything, let me know. I will wait to move the thread to Readers Wanted until you tell me it's ready to go. :)

linny, how would you like us to deal with the references to the drawings (figures)? I'm including them now as I record, but can easily remove them during editing. Just let us know, please.

Please DO NOT read text figures or plates. I put it on the first posting but I'll add color to it. As far as the references to the figures I'm ok either way. I'll leave that to each reader to decide.

Thank you. I think the references can largely be ignored. That is, not recorded.
