Re: CHAT: Conlang T-Shirt Dead?

Perhaps an official apology from Charles would help Fabian change
his mind.  Oh, and the reason I am writing the suggestion here as
opposed to Charles is because I do believe he has set up a mail
filter to be able to blissfully ignore my occasional comments.

Yes! Please Fabian! The conlang t-shirt is one of the coolest ideas on this list since I joined! And it would be like the coolest christmas gift ever! EVER!!! Do you hear that Fabian? Don't give up now! I have used exlamation marks after every sentence in this mail, so you'd better believe I really mean it! We are so encouraging you! Hoping for a soft parcel under the christmas tree this year. :) Daniel "If we don't change course we will end up where we were heading." - Chinese proverb <<<<<< Well, as to apologies, let me make one for myself; I may not have done much flaming, but I'm aware of accidentally fanning the flames, particularly at the start of the debate, for which I wholeheartedly apologise to the whole list. I also want to encourage Fabian to consider reopening the t-shirt project, and suggest that the final say on any aspect of the design of it should rest incontrovertably in his hands, and really ought not be discussed any further in a public forum. Speaking personally, I'd suggest that Fabian should accept private emails with suggestions, but need not be bound by (nor even reveal) any of them. This is an idea that has so much promise that to abandon it for any reason would be a great shame. I am aware that others on the list also suggested (in the early days of the project) doing all the leg-work in putting the t-shirt together. Perhaps, if Fabian no longer wishes to be involved, any other volunteers should discuss it with him privately, that he might coordinate a hand-over of information in the most effective way. ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
