Index issues

The main reason why I currently describe the Twisted Conlangs index
page as experimental is because I need time and experience to find out
about the problems that can arise in maintaining such an index and to
develop policies for handling those problems.

It seems obvious to me that if a particular link is listed on an index
then this is tantamount to a promise that a person can follow that
link in order to find more information about the feature on account of
which it was listed in the first place. Otherwise, what is the point
of listing it at all?

For this reason, it strikes me as reasonable to ask that the conlang's
website should document said feature in at least a moderate amount of
detail (i.e. beyond merely mentioning that it exists, and enough to
provide at least a vague idea of how it works in practise).

I invite comments and discussion on this issue.

I've also received an indexing request in which the link is to a
web page that appears, so far as I can tell, to be blank. I don't
believe that indexing it is an option under those circumstances.
