I will set this up. That will give you a MW into which you can enter the files.

In Listeners Wanted, there is a template for advertising for a proof listener. Just make sure you put [C] to imply you have finished the recordings.

All set. I have started filling out the MW for you. I suggest you complete that before heading over to Listeners Wanted :mrgreen:

Things yo momma never told you:
In the MW Notes area, the simple HTML mark ups work!
in the first 3 sections, I have inserted <b>...</b> and <br> tags in order to make the Chapter numbers and titles stand out more clearly. Maybe later today, I'll try further to make the font color style mark ups work... they don't right now.

FYI the notes section doesn’t get included in the catalogued version. Section titles need to be in the title column.

Thanks, Lynn. I asked Michele about that last night. But I'm not going to undo the Notes changes only because it might be helpful to the PLer(s). I'm still trying to get the Title column to act similarly.

NOW they do!! I have a very important phone call to make in a few minutes, but after that's over, I'll insert the better info into the Title column. I've already fixed Section 01 title as a proof of feasibility.

Lynne,
I'd like to load the first 7 sections' files into the MW, but the link to upload files is not present in the first post...yet.

When will that happen?

It’s there. It’s between the information on file name and the MC. The format looks different since our last upgrade.
