Dear LordOider,

We had previously been communicating about my spoken version articles. I have the following questions:

(1) Per the Wikipedia guidelines the .ogg file names must be prefixed by en-...I did not know this when doing mine and so none of them are so named. Am I able to change the file names?

(2) My spoken version of the articles does not include language about the licensing of the spoken and written version of the article. I felt this was not necessary since this is denoted on the page one sees when one listens to the voice file. In the future I will do as directed in the guidelines. With respect to my already recorded files, is it alright to leave them as is?

Thank you,

Hey Matthew,
to 1: File names could only be changed by admins, so it has to be requested. As there are many spoken articles with "wrong" file names, you can also leave them as they are. The most important is, that you change the description to the template (including the license), as given in the guidelines and link your recording in the appropriate articles and under Spoken articles.
to 2: Note that these recordings will not only be used within the Wikipedia (e.g. the podcast). I can't tell you, if it's all right to leave your old recordings without the license information. I'd probably leave them as they are (No plaintiff, no judge).
