Hallo, Hokuspokus!
Da bin ich also jetzt bei Legamus gelandet. Habe den "Fussball" neu editiert und möchte ihn gerne hochladen. Dabei kannst Du mir sicher weiter helfen. Dies hier ist mein erster Post bei Legamus.

Liebe Grüße

Cool, thank you!

I don't have anything else lined up, but for future reference, is there an upper limit on the number of contributions per collection per reader? Some of the Librivox collections have a cap (like the three poems per reader in the monthly poetry collections), and others don't.

There are a lot of interesting stray poems and stories out there, but I don't want to dominate the collections.

No there is no limit. I'd rather have one reader filling all the collection than waiting for years for it to fill up.

Hello Hokuspokus,

Your response has made me happy! I found something else for the collection, and it's ready for PL!

Section 05

'The Tragedy of the Sioux' by Chief Standing Bear (1868/1869-1939)
Text: http://gutenberg.ca/ebooks/standingbear ... -00-h.html
Duration: 24.49
MP3: https://upload.legamus.eu/simple/files/ ... oux_el.mp3

No rush for you or anyone else to PL, but I thought it was a really exciting and topical piece of writing.

Thank you for the recording, Erin. What a great text. So very sad and still so up to date. Very well read.

Thank you for the recordings, Erin.
I have a extremely busy week right know. I'm afraid PL will take some time.

I'm in no hurry at all, and I did upload a lot at once.

These can wait. They've taken decades to be recorded, so a few extra days now makes no difference!

I hope your week goes well.
