Stepping in to clarify a couple things:

1. I personally always swallow the word when it's written D---d or D---, as that is the way the text is written and the way the author intended it. While this isn't as serious as a reader omitting or changing a derogatory racial term in a text, it's still (IMHO) changing the text to agree with today's sensibilities rather than reading the text as written. So I don't counsel people to change the text when reading, even in a case like this.

2. LibriVox is reader-centric, so please, in standard PL, do try to err on the side of the reader. :) There's a fine line, I know, between wanting to help a reader improve and overstepping that fine line of "no unsolicited criticism." :? We're all doing our best, and we appreciate both the readers and PL'ers that are giving it their all yet work to strike that fine balance.

That said, some readers do appreciate thorough and detailed PL'ing and coaching as to how to make their recordings better; and when they want it, they should ask for it rather than just going with "standard" PL. (Some say, I hope we change the wording from "standard" to "basic" or "baseline" PL, as that is what it is - the bare basics.)

(Here's a run-down on the levels of proof-listening as well as a note about "fine lines": https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Guide_for_Proof-listeners#Levels_of_Proof-listening )
Usually I agree with your wise viewpoint, but not on Damn and Damned. It makes no sense at all when someone who hasn’t read the text listens to something like Der-uh. In print? Fine. Not when read.

Jane -

I think you need to revisit the text. Where I said Der-uh I think was actually D___ Ah.... and it sounds like D.. Ah... as the person in the story was interrupted.

Lovely reading Alan, loved the dry wit that you brought to life beautifully. I particularly enjoyed the bit about the shell ricocheting off the biscuit and killing a Turk. Nicely done, made me laugh.

Gidday Tricia,
Here is Section 31, A Confession of Faith

https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/anzacbook_31_various_128kb.mp3

File Size: 1.9mb
Length: 2:6.20

Thanks for letting me be part of the team, please let me know how I can improve.
Have a great week,
Paul Stewart
Very nicely read.
But could you pay more attention to the requirements on silences at beginning and end?
* Too long silence at beginning (max of 1 sec required)
* Final silence not the full 5 secs required
Lastly, Please remove the first verse you read (So though your name.... CEWB) because this is the final verse of section 30, and has nothing to do with yours, other than appearing under the page heading.

Just a couple of oopsies here:
# 20 has almost 1.5 secs at the beginning. Please reduce to less than 1 sec.

#30
Nice reading.
But an Oops! you''ve left out the final verse (after the picture). This was highlighted in the MW

#70 Oops! Again, you've only read the first 2 verses. There are more beyond the picture, as said in the MW
