    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I first started recording this with the intention of putting it in the Short Nonfiction Collection, but it seems likely that this recording will exceed an hour, and seems to me enough to warrant its own slot.

I agree. It can be a standalone project. I'll MC for you. Back shortly with your MW and some instructions for editing it. :)

This project is now set up in the database. Since this will be your first project as soloist/book coordinator(BC), you will need to set up a password for access to the workflow system so you can enter the information into the section compiler which then appears in the "Magic Window" in the top post. Here are some links to detailed instructions for logging into the system and setting a password the first time, as well as for entering and editing information in the section compiler.

First Time Logging in to the Workflow

Instructions for BCs and DPLs

A version of the above is also in the LibriVox wiki in case you can't access Google Docs for some reason.

BCs - How to Update the Magic Window

Please also note I have shortened the suggested filenames and the intro.

If you have any questions, let me know. I'll leave this thread here in the Launch Pad for a day or so longer before I move it to the Going Solo forum, to see if a DPL (Dedicated Prooflistener) volunteers. Looking forward to working with you.

Please also fill in the MW when you get a chance. It may help attract a DPL :)

I PLed section 1 for you. While you noted that the intro / ending were not complete I have repeated that in my notes.

Missing text
"Section [number] of How to grow the peanut. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
If you wish, say:
"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
Say:
"How to grow the peanut : and 105 ways of preparing it for human consumption, by George Washington Carver. [Section #]"

Ending:
At the end of the section, say:
"End of [Section #]"

There should be ~5 seconds silence at the end of the recording.

Thank you Linny. I'm sorry to say I can't finish this in the time I originally hoped, because of school. I'll have to wait until next summer to do so, but I already have the bulk of the recording done. I mainly need to edit.
