While I'm sure we'll miss you, this is just a _bit_ melodramtic!

Well, I've never gotten any substantive feedback for any of my
posted languages either. [Generally no more than "cool language",
etc.; but then, what more should I expect?] I've learned not to
expect any because I don't expect people here to drop everything
and immerse themselves in my languages.
How do you (or anyone here) expect any truly meaningful feedback
from what's posted in a couple messages and from people who have
not learned the language?
With all due respect, it is not and never has been "unacceptable"
to share languages and ask for feedback. What _is_ unacceptable
is to come off with an attitude that we, as a group, owe you this
You might want to join that proposed in depth conlang dissecting
group that was discussed a little in the recent conlanging cum
art / schools of conlanging thread. The premise would suit your
needs, as there would be someone willing to learn Mujai and
thoroughly critique it.
