kri, to explain why some projects might be abandoned, wrote:... We understand that life intervenes and is far far more important than helping us out at LibriVox. At the very least, I do, and I'm sure I'm not stepping too far to say the rest of us running around behind the scenes understand as well. All we ask for is a little notice if you've got projects that you're responsible for, and no guilt is necessary. Even if you decide that you're just not enjoying things anymore and don't really want to participate, we really won't think badly of it. It's important to have fun, enjoy yourself, and if you're no longer doing those things, let us know and we'll be glad to wish you well and find other people to take things over for you.
Sometimes a soloist or closed group will not be able to finish their project and opens that project for others to work on. When this happens, their MC will add the book to the list below, and move the project thread into storage. This thread is to advertise for either a soloist to complete the book using the existing files, or for an experienced book coordinator to convert it into a group project.

If you would like to pick up any of these projects, and use the existing chapter file/s please create a NEW THREAD in the Launch Pad, including all the regular information. You should use the solo/group template as appropriate, and post that you are adopting an abandoned project. You will need to wait for a new MC to sign up to the project, then they will be able to recreate the old Magic Window, including the links to existing files.

If you would like to read the original project thread before deciding, please post below, and any MC will be able to move it out of storage to Book Suggestions for review. You could also ask there if others are interested in helping! If you decide to go ahead with it, please create a NEW THREAD in the Launch Pad as described above.

If you decide to begin a brand new project, not using any of the old files, you do not need to post in this thread at all. Proceed to the Launch Pad and begin the new project.

Once an adopted project is underway, please check that your MC has removed the posts from this thread, just to keep things tidy.

If you cannot see the project thread, it is because it has been moved off the general forum. Post here to ask for an admin to move it back so you can see it.

The Juvenile Bible by Anonymous (abandoned July 2018)

Sections completed: 3 (PL OK)

Could you please move this back so I can see it? And if I preferred to do it as a solo, would it be possible to re-do the first 3 sections?
Kind Regards!
CJ

no - if you want to do it as a Solo you must set it up as a new project . This thread is about using existing files, not about getting the title done.
We try not to waste others work .

Does this change your mind ?

Maybe, if it is okay to say that out loud. I may finish up another project I am working on and see about taking this one on as a solo/new project.
Thanks!
Kind Regards!

Sure , you aren't saying anything about the reader, just that you prefer to do it as a solo. these abandoned projects seem to usually end up as a group project unless they are almost finished.

Hello there,

After sticking around for a week and actually recording a few sections, I suppose I am ready to go back to my abandoned solo. :) Could someone please move the Portuguese project Às margens da história to the launchpad (or somewhere more suitable, not sure :?: )? Thanks much! :mrgreen:

Moving to the Launch Pad in a minute or two.

You freaked me out - You had "À margens da história" as the title, and I couldn't find it ANYWHERE because I searched on "margens". But it's "margem". WHEW!

A little error:

In the entry for ...

Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry by Albert Pike (File from 2008)
Text: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/1947

The gutenberg link should be to book 19447
