Some Poems of Roger Casement by Roger Casement (1864 - 1916).

This project is now complete! All audio files can now be found on the catalog page for this project http://librivox.org/some-poems-of-roger-casement-by-roger-casement/
This is a small volume of poetry by Roger Casement. Casement was a diplomat for years, active especially in Africa, where he witnessed the dark side of British Imperialism. He began to devote his life to human rights, and is still recognised for his important work particularly in the Congo and in Peru. ( 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.
      Please note that we handle a one month deadline for poetry projects!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/53162
    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.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

      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!

I'd like to take Section 1 "Introduction by Gertrude Parry" and Section 11 "The Irish Language."
I've read your Note concerning the Librivox intro for Section 1. I'll follow that format.
:D
Thank you!

Hi Carolin,
I'm ready to upload the Introduction, but I'm stumped by this message for the upload:

"You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: yy - yyyyy"

There is no yy-yyyyy as MC in the selection.
Wouldn't the MC be Carolin?
:help:

Here's the introduction for PL. I went ahead and uploaded it to Carolin as MC. On the instruction page, it says yy-yyyyy, but I think that's a mistake.

I'd like to claim section 4 and 5. I'm a very new reader. (I've only done the 1 minute test so far. :D ) So, it might take me a couple of tries.
