Please stop this immensely stupid and pointless propaganda!!! This is at least your third or fourth violation of Rule No. 1 in a few days. It sounds like you really can't figure out how the world has ever been able to turn around its axis without Ygede. Let me ask you a simple question, Andrew: what are you trying to achieve with these messages? Are you trying to convince people to learn your language? Then you have definitely come to the wrong place. The Conlang List is a place where all kinds of conlangers meet, because they share a passion for language and create one themselves. We create languages because we enjoy it, because we can't live without it, for the sake of beauty or intellectual game. But I'm pretty sure none of us conlangs because he or she believes to save the world with it. And I'm 100 % that nobody here is waiting for the language that ends all other languages. Has it ever occurred to you that people actually might feel offended if somebody enters the list and with a lot of pooha announces his own language that is better and more promising than theirs? How on Earth do you expect to be taken seriously, then?! Now, you are welcome to share your thoughts and experiences about conlanging, and to ask questions that might help you improve your language. That's what we are for. Just do not try to convince us that your language is better. Apart from the fact that it is not true, such kind of nonsense just doesn't belong here! And if you are trying to recruit speakers for your language, please to that somewhere else. Believe me, other places will suit your purposes better.
