The Seven Seas by Rudyard Kipling (1868 - 1936).
This is a collection of some of the poetry of Rudyard Kipling, These poems are centered around travelling, many of which may have been written by Kipling during his various travels. ( Carolin)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/27870
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Awesome!
May I claim 1-8, or if that's too greedy, 4-8, or whatever works? Any combination works for me, I'd just really like to do 7 and 8. :D

Great, i have signed you up! Note that the magic window will always have your forum name, but i have entered Alejandro Arias in the database and it will be on the catalog page :thumbs:

You can get started on proof listening! As you are the Dedicated pl now, you also get to access the magic window. To access it for the first time, click on bc admin under the magic window and just pretend you forgot your password. The system will generate one for you and emaail it to you. You can change your password once you have logged on.

As dpl, you needn't worry about any of the fields in the mw except for the drop down menu with the pl status on the right next to each section :)

One word of caution though, it is easy to accidentally drag and drop sections out of order in the magic window, so be careful :)

Have fun and please let us know if you have any questions!
