Yes, I'm a conlanger. And yes, most of my projects are auxlangs. I'm a member of both lists, and do see the reasoning behind separate lists because of the different issues involved. Conlang is mainly geared toward lingistics and language engineering where Auxlang deals more with the practicalities of various approaches to auxlangs and their promotion. People aren't shy about evangelizing their favorites either.
