So, about a week late, Welcome here!
Well, I see Jan already answered before me :((( . That will teach me: working
during worktime is a Bad Idea(TM) ;))) .

Well, it all depends on the questions you have yourself. If you give too broad
a presentation, we'll give too broad replies (Jan already explained that). If
you have questions, just introduce particular points of your conlangs you want
our input on, and make bigger introductions later. Personally, I love big
introductions of a conlang, but not everybody does ;)) . At least, always add
specific questions. The usual "comments/questions anyone?" is often too broad
to provoke useful input.
(As long as it proceeds beyond the
> an idiot" point,
Nah, you'll never hear that here. This is the most flame-free mailing list of
the web (despite what the folks at World-building are saying ;))) ). We reserve
our "you are an idiot"s to auxlang politics flames ;)))) (a rare beast on this
list, they are explicitely forbidden). Of course, if you happen to be a gay
bearded left-handed Lithuanian, then that's another matter ;))))) .
and especially if it consists of "I love your work,
> a thousand dollars, send me your book.")
Still waiting for this one, although you can keep your stinkin' dollars. Gimme
Euros or gold bars ;))))) (a thousand gold bars? Wow!).
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
