I'm not the site owner, but can suggest that spreading information on the existence of the Oera Linda book in the first place is a very valuable thing. There are lots of people out there interested in ageless philosophy, European cultural history, Norse sagas, Vikings, Goths etc that would benefit from hearing about the work (regardless of what they come to think of it). Asha Logos videos are a good entrypoint.

I. A volunteer from Denmark has recently offered to help editing and subtitling videos, in particular interviews (2 Dutch ones are planned for this month). This is wonderful. Volunteers translating/improving the subtitles would be welcome to support this project: German, English, Dutch (when I lack time), Scandinavian languages other than Danish, etc.

II. Another main project with high priotity:
Production of Ebook (and eventually printed book: paperback?) with the now ready fully revised translation, without transliteration and footnotes. I think of distributing this version free of charge. Help I could use:
- someone with good Adobe InDesign experience to help design it
- ideas for a new cover image, edition title
- someone who can help write a good, short introduction to it

III. Production of audiobook. A volunteer (a Frisian-Canadian mother) has offered to do this, but we have not yet started (test-) recording. Advice from someone with experience/ technical know how could help.

IV. The structure for an OL wiki has been set up, but we could use good content creators to get it started. Initially it was set up to support the making of new translations, but this will rather become second place that first.

V. Besides two studio interviews and two audience presentations this month, I am still selling and shipping books of the 4th edition. This still takes much time. For future printed editions, I could use help, in particular distriobution in the USA where most books go, thus far. I have found a volunteer who may set up distribution in US which will significantly reduce costs and shipping time.

At the moment I have much to organise myself, but I will every now and then post requests for help here.

Many thanks to all who have helped before and/or who are taking initiatives by themselves!

Since the free ebook (translation only, working title: "narrative edition") will be distributed widely, it should be designed well. Who can help realize this in both PDF and EPUB?

For the next print edition (fully revised, larger numbers), a volunteer good at working with Adobe Indesign would be most welcome.

Also, ideas for new cover images (various editions) would be appreciated.
