Well, it started out as a collection of our langs, but it seems to have changed since then. At least, I think it started out with just our langs. I'd personally prefer only our conlangs, after all, you wouldn't have Michelangelo or Picasso in a collection of paintings by a particular group of artists. But, that's just my two cents, and a seemingly very minority opinion. -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
