Tiffany - do you want me to mark Dusty's chapter PL OK - it's an incorrect word, and it doesn't look like there has been any log on from the last time they posted here? Do you want me to try to PM and see if we get a response?

What was the word, was it significant? I cannot find the note.

Due to a deep freeze of -50 C give or take (making the internet spotty at best) and a nasty headache I have been unable to do much proof listening. I hope to be able to catch up next week.Thanks for your patience!

This was the note: At 13:04 - I hear: Stretched on the board of his back. It should be: Stretch on the broad of his back.

So it was read Board, it should be Broad. It sounds a little strange, but it's not really a technical problem. :lol: :lol:

Thank you, Mary!

There is a technical issue: The volume falls outside of the target range (86–92 dB) at 85.2 dB. 89 dB is the ideal volume, please increase the volume of the entire piece by 3.8 db.

I noticed that you left out the swearing (the d-----n) stuff. We know that what was written was the word damn, and that at the time, it was censored, as are most swear words (and sometimes names, towns, etc). I hear that you left the words entirely out, and it sounds odd to me, as it gives a very odd pause and then an unrelated word after - which will confuse the listener, since there isn't the visual of knowing that there was a censored word. If you're uncomfortable with the cursing, you can put "blank" so, say, "Blank him" or even "D him", which still sounds strange, but doesn't give that odd pause. I know you're fairly new at this, and this question comes up a lot of how to deal with the blanked out words, so know that you're in good company, because I think we all have struggled with this question at one time or another.

I have added the time stamps of these places. I think I got them all:

5:45
7:57
8:24
13:42

Once the volume is corrected and you've added the blanked out words in some manner, please reupload with the new time and we should be good to go on this chapter.

Terrific job - these chapters are hard to read, and all of you readers are just killing them! :clap: :clap: :clap:
