Please use this template to post a new solo project. See also the FAQ in the New Projects Launch Pad forum.

Copy and paste this into your post, and click "Preview" to see what it looks like and to make changes. Replace all the items in bold as applicable (not just the information in the "temporary paragraph"!!). Leave remaining info for the MC to edit. Please make sure you include all information required in the temporary paragraph.


[size=150][b]Title by Author (Birth and Death Dates of Author) [/b][/size]. [Translated by Translator](Birth and Death Dates of Translator).

[quote]Introduction text here, no spoilers please! Write your own or use Wikipedia. (Introduction by xxxx)[/quote]
[list][*][b]Target completion date:[/b] date

[*][b]Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the [url=][u]PL FAQ[/u][/url]):[/b] Standard, Word Perfect, Special, Translated Text (delete as appropriate)

[b]IMPORTANT - soloist, please note:[/b] in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record 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).

This paragraph is temporary and will be replaced by the MC with the list of sections and reader (Magic Window) once this project is in the admin system.
