IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded 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!

No, Is it often done or expected that people recruit a DPL? In my couple of projects so far, people have volunteered.

No, it’s not expected. Some readers have DPLs they have worked with on previous projects and have agreed ahead of time to work with again. If you don’t have one, you need to add a tilde to the title line, so prospective DPLs know you need one.

At the top of the first post, towards the right, but it might be fairly central depending on your browser, you’ll see a stubby little pencil icon. That lets you edit the first post. Then you select the title and add the tilde at the beginning 8-) You can als edit the blurb, but if you do that, let me know as I have to change the project page.

Please enter a chapter title… if there isn’t one, it should be chapter 1.

Thanks.

Sorry about the chapter titles. I was going to put them in later then I forgot it.
