my head started spinning with all the billions and millions of war cost :shock: to think that this money could have been used to actually make the world a better place instead of destroying it needlessly :( well...people will never learn

The eye-witness report from the Russian Revolution was a great chapter though. Both excellently narrated and PL ok, thank you, Jim

it sounds perfect, excellently narrated April, thank you so much. No errors detected and PL ok right away :thumbs: no looking forward to the next instalments of "Kitchener's Mob" (sounds like a soap opera :lol: )

hello and thanks for your section, which is excellently narrated as well. :thumbs: It was a pleasure to listen to your voice and the text was rendered word-perfect. :) I think you were recording a bit too loud maybe, because there has been some clipping off, I would suggest setting the microphone to a bit lower input range. But it didn't distort the sound, so all is well this time.

However there is one bit that you need to correct, it only needs a re-recording of the intro disclaimer. The rest of the text is perfect and does not have to be touched. Simply re-record the intro and paste it into the correct slot:

> for the intro disclaimer, could you please use the "full disclaimer" ? (this is mentioned in the Magic Window for your section - the short intro is only for very small sections). So please, say all the following:
“Section 12 of The World War.
This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org
Recording by atelo
The World’s Story Volume XV: The World War, edited by Horatio W. Dresser.
Section 12: The second German mobilization (1914), by Geoffrey Pyke"


> at the end we leave a standard of 5 seconds of silence - you have over 7 seconds, could you please cut out two seconds ?

then simply reupload with the exact same filename, then the old file will get replaced with the new

Thank you, great start, hopefully more to come
