Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded 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!

Jo, when I click on the book title on the reader page it doesn't go anywhere. Might be me (internet is up and down) or might be something you need to set??

Sorry, Tom. I forgot to go back and add the thread link in the database entry. Should be fixed.

Also added Jim as DPL, so I'll move the thread to Going Solo.
