Can I claim Chapter 10 parts 1,2 and 3?
I'm sorry, another reader claimed those sections just before you did. Is there another section you'd like to claim?

Hello! May I read Chapter 10: Part 1,2,3 and Chapter 11: Part 2,4 :D
Hello, I appreciate your enthusiasm! Welcome to LV! I'll sign you up for Chapter 10, parts 1-3 starting off. Recording and editing is more work than it may seem at first, so it's a good idea to start off with a small number of projects to get more comfortable with the process. Once you've submitted one of the three sections from Chapter 10 and you feel like you're ready to claim some more sections, let me know and I'll be happy to sign you up.

Before you start recording any chapter sections, though, I would strongly suggest completing a 1-minute test. It's not an audition - it's just a way to check for sound problems and to make sure that the technical specifications are set up correctly with your recording software.

Could you let me know what name you'd like to be listed under in the LV catalog?

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions about anything! :)
MariaYikes should be fine! Thank you so much I appreciate it. :D

:help: Sorry to be a pain, I have recorded the first section and am still editing it, can I just ask how I should introduce it? It's not a chapter as such and is section 0 in the magic window, do I say 'Chapter zero', or nothing at all and just read what's in front of me, do I even say 'translated by ...' as this part isn't translated...??? Please can you just word the introductory preamble for me as it should be?(As it stands I've said everything I can think of and will just cut out what you think is unnecessary!)

Thanks in advance!
You're not being a pain at all! :) I appreciate your attention to details. This is a good question since this project is a little odd with multiple prefatory sections. Here's what I would go with based on how I'm recording the preface:

"George Sand by Pearl Mary-Teresa Craigie, from Mauprat. This is a LibriVox recording [...] please visit librivox.org. Read by ____. Mauprat, by George Sand, translated by Stanley Young. George Sand."

I inclined towards keeping the "translated by..." (and being a bit repetitive with all the "George Sand"s) for consistency's sake.

Feel free to ask questions whenever they arise!
Great, thanks, that's clearer now! Will do.

Hi there- glad all was well with section13. I have recorded section 14 (chapter 9 part 2) but I am having a bit of a problem - when I used Checker, it said that it "passed with warnings" because of the file name. I have copied and pasted the file name and I have also just typed it in and it keeps saying that it has spaces but I can't seem to figure out what is wrong... the length is 18:32.92. Please let me know if there is something I can do to fix it.
Thanks - Gini

Hmm, the file name is correct, so I'm not sure why Checker would be giving you that warning. When I try to download the file, though, it downloads as an HTML file instead of an mp3. Could you try re-uploading it when you have a chance?

In the meantime, I've signed you up for sections 22 and 23. Thank you for claiming!

Section 0:

Time:17.15

Then I didn't ask you what to say at the end; I've signed off with Pearl MTC's name and said 'end of this section'. Hope this is OK, let me know if not.
