As instructed, I am trying to upload a zipped image file of the title page from my 1754 edition but cannot see how incorporate the file into a forum post. All I get is the opening and closing tags for a link. Do I just enter the full filename and path to my desktop please?
Cheers

Hi Nick! I'll set up the Magic Window for you. You can upload the zipped image file to my uploader folder, just as you would upload an MP3 file, then post the link from the uploader.

Magic Window (MW) is in place!

As the soloist, you're in charge of it, so here's all you need to know about the Magic Window:
https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Soloists:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window

To gain access you'll need to set up your own password. Start with "Accessing the System – First Time Login" to create your password.
Once you have an MW password, you can use it for the uploader, too (forum name + MW password).

It's a lot of information, so please ask if anything is unclear or if you're having trouble creating your password. Basically, you fill in the Section titles, and whenever you upload a recording, you put the duration in the Notes field, enter the file url, and mark it Ready for PL in the last column. Then also post in the thread that you've added new files in the Magic Window, so that all project activity is recorded in the forum.

Thanks Rapunzelina!

I'm on it - having difficulty getting an email sent to reset password but I'll figure it out. If not I'll come back to you. I presume that the system has my email address.. I could not see it in my profile...
Cheers

I got the title page image, thank you! If this online text is the same as your book https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A46439.0001.001?view=toc

maybe you'd prefer reading from that than handling your book - I'm always a bit afraid I'm going to damage an old fragile book by handling it...

Are you able to access the Magic Window now? You can get inside from the link "BC Admin" under the Window. Then you can fill it in with the section titles and enter the link, duration, etc.

I'll move us to the Going Solo sub-forum in a bit!

Thanks very much for the link. It does make it easier to read but I like using the older text. There are one or two minor textual differences I've noticed but in reading it I realise my rendition lacks a certain flow in parts so will rehearse a bit the subsequent satires.

Yes, I've accessed the magic window and will try to do the necessary adjustments later.

I just had a listen to the first Satyr, and I have entered it into the Magic Window as PL OK!

As for the different translators, please do as you see fit, all options are acceptable. My suggestion would be to mention the specific translator for each satyr, in the intro of each section. So, for example, if you're using the shortened intro for the second and subsequent sections:
"The second Satyr of The Satyrs of Decimus Junius Juvenalis, translated by ******. This LibriVox recording is in the public domain. etc."

And for the last section and end-of-book statement, maybe "End of the 16th Satyr. End of the Satyrs of Decimus Junius Juvenalis, translated by John Dryden and others."

Both the second and the third Satyrs are PL OK! Very well done!

(I've removed the accidental section 17)
