I would like to read Chapter 7: Waiting For the Pirate's Attack. This will be my first time recording and I would like to appear as lightstarx.

Ch 7:

Please be sure to use the correct file name format as stated in the first post. This isn't just me being fussy.
a) the file will not be stored with other files for this project (think of it as a large filing cabinet with folders for each project... this file would be a loose paper falling to the bottom and no one would know where to put it :? )
b) we need the 2 digit file number _07_ ... a file beginning with 7 would be filed in the 70s i.e. after the last section in this case.
c) the validator (what we use for cataloguing projects) would fail with upper case letters or commas included.
d) we need the author's name, not yours, to make it searchable in the catalog. You are already searchable, because you are in the catalog as a reader.

The correct format is always stated in the first post.

The volume is too low. We look for 89dB, with an allowable range of 86-92dB. Your file is 84dB. Please amplify by about 5dB. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_z607awyLw

There is a lot of background noise. Please do some noise cleaning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFSg9o37HMw

~1:17 transposed words "Is it possible" should be "It is possible" -- this changes the meaning and you read the sentence as a question rather than a statement.
~1:45 missing text: "although it is built upon a very weak and tottering foundation."
~5:45 missing text: "It is about time we were doing it, too."
~6:00 unclear: “I’ll attend to that telephone, old chap, and I will bring Chick out to you the minute he arrives. I’ll head off the women, too, and I’ll see to it that we are not disturbed out here to-night. I only hope the pirate will show up.”

Please do these edits and upload with the correct file name captainsparkle_07_carter_128kb.mp3
