The Light Princess by George MacDonald (1824 - 1905).


This project is now complete. All files can be downloaded from the catalog page here:https://librivox.org/the-light-princess-version-3-by-george-macdonald/[/color]
( )

  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/697/697-h/697-h.htm
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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'll MC this for you - back soon.
Please don't upload until I'm back with instructions for you and then please just add the first file so the PLer can check the intro and outro.
It will be version 3 in the catalogue.

There is a steep learning curve for this

Now that you are a soloist, you will be your own BC (book coordinator). That means that you will enter the links to your recordings into the Magic Window (MW) (the scrolling window in the first post). Here is a document that explains how to get into the MW the first time:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxWB83bbALTQYjlENGZ0SVJUWWs

And here is another document that explains how to keep the MW up to date etc:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kVj409nG_E0XJ5UrrcL7EVx7Qyx-2UQ7dbw4mINi3XQ

You left out the number of sections and I didn't notice.
I added 4 for you and put the title in them to show what is required - adding the sections does mean you can add the titles as you go - I allowed 15 which is what the other versions had

See how you go.

Hi Anne,

So I tried accessing the Magic Window following the instructions you gave me, but the page I got directed to after logging in the last time says that I don't have permission for this area. Do you know how I can fix this?

Sincerely,
Simone

Grteat you have finished but.............Where are the links? You do need to post them and add them to the MW before they can be catalogued or PLed . Others no one knows about them.

I must have cross-posted - 11 had a misspelt file name - should be OK now.

The entries should have the time (length) and the status set to "ready for PL" . I have reset the status for you.

Thanks for stepping in , but this project has a Dedicated Proof Listener - there are a couple of ways you can tell - I know it's all a bit confusing at first. If you look in the Magic Window (the database nterface in the first post, you can see fiddlesticks name there , and also the heading of the project shows a tilde ~ before it if PLing is needed - which should be removed when it isn't but we are not always perfect.

Welcome to LV - I joined as a proof listener many years ago and I'm still here. It's always a good idea to post in the thread first - though I can understand you wanting to do it immediately and it can take some time for people to be online, especially on an international site.
