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

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,

Still waiting for this one, although you can keep your stinkin' dollars. Gimme Euros or gold bars ;))))) (a thousand gold bars? Wow!). Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
