Hello, Roma! Your window is ready!

Just so you know, I tweaked a few things in your first post: I removed the "(or chapter)" from the disclaimer, because I suppose that for a collection it is better if all readers just say "section"; and I shortened the filename (the template always just defaults to the whole name of the book, which sometimes gets quite long!).

I will just wait for mleigh to confirm here in the thread they will DPL to add them, but other than that, we are ready to go! :thumbs:

Welcome to Librivox, a pleasure to have you here! From what I know, it looks like you haven't done your one-minute test yet, which is something we require all Librivox newbies to do before they start claiming in a project. Here is our Newbie Guide To Recording and One-Minute Test Guide to help you get started.
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Newbie_Guide_to_Recording
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/1-Minute_Test

Once you've completed your one-minute test, you're all ready to start recording! I'll have the sections reserved for you until you've completed your one-minute test. Let me know if you have any other questions. :wink:
