Would there be a way, in order to add a feature to the MW's which would say how many sections are awaiting PL? In some group projects that get cluttered, it gets to be hard work for the DPL to find the sections needing PL, and how many sections need it etc. I know that we humans should be able to see these things, and they should be a DIY, but I'm just making a little thought, and thinking about a tiny improvement. But don't get me wrong, the MW's are a wonderful tool, and they're such an incredible help. Whoever created the system, did a great job, and it makes things nice and organized :9:

This wouldn't really be needed for SOLO projects though, but in some cases I think it might be helpful for groups. We have visually impaired DPL's, and wouldn't this little tool help them know how many sections the have left to DPL?

It doesn't show in the MW, but when the DPL goes to their own reader page and clicks "Section details," it will show them a tab for sections they've signed up to read, and a tab for sections they've signed up to PL. Here's mine, showing my many sections awaiting my PL: https://librivox.org/sections/readers/11084

I kind of, sort of, forgot about that. I guess that sums it all up then. No update needed after all, the feature is already there (in a different way). I'm not going to blame this on being tired though, instead this is rather a "wait, how did I not think of that?"

Thanks Devorah!

How can a user find out his/her own user number, please?

just click on your name in the MW or the catalogue page and it shows in the url - yours is 167, you are a real LV old-timer :D

If you're very careful, you should be able to sort the MW by Status. That'll sort all the "Ready for (PL/Spot PL)" into the same area.

I'm saying to be very careful, because if you do this and then drag-and-drop any section by accident, it'll renumber all the sections so that they'll all be in the new order! :shock: Then you have to drag and drop each section by hand and re-sort them manually!
