TO DO LIST: (as of December 16)


- Make the site accessible
- The menus are out of control AGAIN. Fix it!
- Add descriptions for the sounds without one and check if it is a duplicate (In Progress)
- Format Time and Temperature recordings (In Progress)
- Add NEW SOUNDS!
- Add corresponding WORKING phone numbers (In Progress)
- STOP ADDING THINGS TO THE TO DO LIST (Never gonna happen)

Until this is complete, you may notice things moving around. If you can't find something, please use the search


DONE LIST: (as of December 16)


- Add the 1.1k sounds
- Make category for sounds with corresponding phone numbers
- Make category for scans
- Double check tags (Forget it.)
- Figure out what to do about the menus
- Sort "Unsorted"
- Check for duplicates (Yeah, right. I'm never gonna do this. lol.)
- Sort Telephone Company Types (Wired, wireless, voip) (Never mind. The site is convoluted enough, thank you very much)


ON SUBMITTING SOUNDS


Submitting sounds is encouraged and always appreciated. This site would not be possible without the many people who have contributed directly or indirectly.

However long ago, I "audited" the site to separate the wheat from the chaff. As a result, not all the sounds were readded and similar sounds will not be added to This Is a Recording if submitted. Below are some guidelines for submitting sounds. You can submit any sound you like. However, if they do not follow the guidelines they may not be added to the site. If you are unsure whether or not a recording follows the guidelines, you can submit it and I will review it.

1. No rando linemen recordings. I know, these are cool because they are rare and unique. However, they just don't fit into the site because I'm trying to use 'official' recordings.
2. No CLEC recordings. I can't archive everything. lol.
3. No recordings with no corresponding telephone number. I need the number to verify or rerecord, if necessary.
4. Please check if the recording already exists and please do not submit duplicates.


Caveats:
These are the exceptions to the rules above. These would be added to the site.
1. Recordings with a common voice (i.e. Pat Fleet, "Anna")
2. Branded recordings (i.e. Recordings that name the phone company. For example, if it is a rando lineman and during the recording he says Ameritech.)
3. ANACs. There are a lot of ANACs on CLECs. Many of them with that snotty, nasally voice. If you know what system that is, let me know.
4. Duplicates of poor quality recordings.
5. Anything that's really interesting, funny, unique. If it's something special, please allow me to review it.


Please submit sounds here. Thank you in advance. I will add it as soon as I can. Your patience is appreciated as this can be a slow process.

Thank you again to those of you who already have because you helped to make this site possible.

CORRECTIONS NEEDED


If you see any errors, please Please PLEASE leave a comment on that blog post (or email but I prefer the comment because it makes it a lot easier for me) so I can correct it. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Including reclassification of a sound, requesting a rerecording (which may or may not be possible), suggestions for groupings of sounds, whatever. If you have an idea on how to make this site better, please let me know
