https://librivox.org/the-sea-its-stirring-story-of-adventure-peril-heroism-volume-1-by-frederick-whymper/


Everything about the sea: history of ships, famous mariners and life on shipboard, adventure, shipwrecks and daring rescues. ( Kikisaulite)
    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/39341
    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.

Ok, all set!

I removed the info about ID3 V2 tags as it is no longer necessary. The tag info is automatically filled in during cataloguing and anything that is in there will be over-written.

If I've missed anything or you need anything else, let me know!

Bon voyage! :)

The MW is now filled with all the necessary information, word counts and chapter division etc.

We are now open for claims! :clap:
And a DPL would be most welcome!

I'll leave us in the Launch Pad for a day or two to see if we can attract a DPL here.

Kristine,

I'll move us over to Readers Wanted. If we get some sections in before we have a proof-listener we can always advertise.

I will just listen to them myself, so no big deal if a DPL does not show up.
