How to use this template

  1. Copy the template below and paste it into a new topic in the Listeners/Editors Wanted forum. For a subject in the thread, please put "IP - Listeners WANTED: Title by Author" (IP stands for In Progress. Leave out the Author if there's no room).
  2. Modify the template so it fits your project, according to the notes below.
  3. Click Preview in the post to make sure everything looks OK.
  4. Post the topic. An admin will be locking the thread later to make sure volunteers post only in the project thread.
  5. Whenever there aren't any new sections that need PL, please edit your post subject to say "IP - Listeners FOUND: Title by Author." When new sections are complete, simply change the subject back to "Listeners WANTED." It is quite frustrating for potential PLers to look through Listeners WANTED threads with no open sections! When you've found a DPL, please contact your MC and ask for the PL thread to be deleted from the forum.

How to modify the template

  1. Go to your project thread. In the first post, click "edit" on the top right to see the code of the post.
  2. Copy the genre (and language, if other than English) from the subject of your project thread and paste it into the template.
  3. Copy the summary/description and paste it into your template.
  4. Delete 'solo' or 'group' from this sentence as appropriate: "This solo/group project is looking for proof-listeners." Delete the following sentence about DPLs if you're not looking for a DPL.
  5. If you want more than Standard level PL, copy the appropriate level & instructions from the PL FAQ.
  6. Replace 'link' with the real URL of your project thread.
  7. At the bottom, you can see the code for the Magic Window. Find the same code in the middle of your project post. Replace the #### between the brackets with the numbers you find in your project post and your Magic Window will be displayed correctly.

[*]Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file (10 if the recording is more than 30 minutes long)?[/list]
