If Phil has login info for the "official" donated LibriVox Zoom account, he could maybe share that info with the other admins. Then, as long as at least one of us is available to host, I think we could easily use that account. I'm sure he'll be able to chime in on that when he gets a chance to take a break from unpacking.
Here is Zoom's information on Changing The Account Owner, setting up permissions, admins, etc. By my reading, each account is affiliated with just one email address, and that is Phil's at the moment.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but an account (Phil's gifted account) would sign in with a login (email) and password, right? So Phil could share his email address and password with the meeting host. The account doesn't need to be officially signed over to a different user.

I think anything like that would require discussion amongst all the admins. I understand this is being talked about on facebook so that people do not even need to be LV members so maybe that would be a dangerous path to start on. I'm not anti-people who want getting together to have a chat about LV but feel strongly official business should be conducted in the forum so everyone can see it and comment if they wish there.

Yes, of course all the admins would need to be ok with it. I only mention it as a possibility so that perhaps we can begin discussion on it.

I'm going to be starting a week long dog/housesit with a whole menagerie of animals (2 beagles, possible grandma's foofy dog as well, 2 parrotlets, 3 backyard chickens and a hermit crab) ...

I’m sorry that you won’t be at the meeting this Sunday, Colleen. I have this great picture in my head of you sitting at your computer with all sorts of critters on your head, lap, flying around, etc. Sort of a Zoom event with a lady Doctor Doolittle. :)

Lordt. I'll either be in the chaos of trying to pack up all my stuff and move over there, or the chaos of getting all the animals settled in. Trust me, you don't want two confused baying beagles with you all on the Zoom! They settle down after the first day, but arrival and settling in is crazy! I'll miss you guys though!

I do not visit the Facebook site so I didn't know this. I am actually not terribly comfortable with non-LV members attending our Zoom sessions. Phil initiated it but I still don't understand the rationale. I like it being "just us", and it isn't hard to become a member.

Could someone give me the Facebook page addy?

That mother and daughter, something like MZKay, were from the Facebook "LibriVox Readers and Listeners" group. They joined the forum after having been to a Zoom meeting.

I can certainly do that.

I'm not seeing any activity in the Zoom meeting. Is the time Noon Eastern? - or Central? - or something else?
