Applying even the more generous criteria proposed in the WP:CONLANGS draft policy (which was never adopted anyway), it still seemed to me that gjâ-zym-byn wasn't encyclopedically notable. But apparently the criteria for conlangs (and perhaps minor topics in general?) on the E-o Vikipedio are even more generous than the most inclusionist conlangers on the English Wikipedia ever dared to propose -- the idea being that Esperanto speakers are on average more interested in conlangs than English speakers. -- Jim Henry
