Thank you, Arielle!

FYI - I know the MW is not up to date with links. I have not had time to focus on it - I'm going to aim for working on it tomorrow.

I have no completed chapters on my laptop.

I also have no recollection of which chapters I'd promised to edit, but I've got free time, so feel free to assignment some.
Truth,
James

James, now that I think about it, I'm not sure you ever uploaded any chapters, you just said that you would do some. So that's all good. :)

We haven't been assigning chapters, I think - rather the editors were doing them as they had time. Just post before you start, saying "I'm editing chapter 15" or something to avoid duplicating work. :)

I'm wondering what to do about the cast list for the catalogue page - nearly everyone read a package of a lot of small parts, so what if, rather than listing them all, we did something like was done for Comic Tragedies - "Black Beauty: Arielle, Actor 1: Ricky, Actor 2: Joe" or whatever, and so on? Or listed the main parts - though I'm not sure who that would be - and then after that, "Additional roles read by..." and list everyone's names, like was done for Five Children and It. Or we could go the regular way, which would be pretty easy, and I like being able to credit everyone the same way, but it would make for a pretty crowded page because there are such a huge amount of minor characters. What do you all think? :)

Oh, and I'm going to see if I can find someone to read James Howard's missing lines. I've got a couple of voices in mind which I think will be similar enough.

I'm not sure what chapters Arielle had edited. I edited Chapter 1 (which was PL OK except that it needed the cast list), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, and 15.
About the cast list--I agree that it's huge! I'm the person, though, that will want to know exactly who played the third cook or the second crowd member. (Crazy, I know, but it's true!) I'm not sure how to balance giving everyone credit and making it not crazy long. Maybe it would be better to have the DP as a separate file just so you could have everyone?
Here's the chapters I'd edited:

Guys, this was such a pleasure, thanks for having me as part of this project.

Adele, in answer to your question above, I had only edited chapter 12 and already reuploaded it with the rest of my chapters.

I meant the list for the catalogue page - the recorded one should include all the parts, I think, and that way if anyone wants to know who played all the little parts, there is a way, but we don't have to have it all twice. :) (I like your idea of having it in a separate file - usually I prefer it to be included in the first chapter, but in this case it might end up as long as the whole chapter!)

Super awesome! Thank you for being part of it!

I have someone who is going to record James' missing chapter for us, so I think we are almost all ready for editing :thumbs:

Chapter 8 is now ready to edit, by the way - super thanks to Tomas who recorded James' missing lines!

I thought I'd do a pass at editing, and Chapter 8 is missing two lines that should be Squire Gordon's:

"Well, my pretty one, well, how do things go with you now? You are a good bit happier than when you came to us, I think."

"We shall make a cure of her, John."

The second line is read by the reader for James Howard, which is fine except the first line is totally missing, so in my opinion we may as well have the reader for Squire Gordon record both if he's available.
