This makes me delurk! Sorry for replying late,
I'm recieving mail by digest.

For those who don't know me: I'm from Holland
(Boudewijn and Irina introduced me to conlanging
when we were still at university) and on this list for
about three years.

Recently I haven't had much time do make/finish
a conlang ( I'm still busy with my result from
the Nine Project started by Danny Wier, just to give
an impression of my slow pace). So the fact that
there is no time limit (like in the relays) appeals to me.

<< On the the language topic, what level of family are
people interested in? Indo-European level, or Romance
level (I believe Andrew Smith prefers the latter)? I'm
willing to go either way. >>

I think I would like to opt for something differrent:
I would like to devise a pidgin or creole based on
the language. Is this okay too?
I just have to think about the other languages it
comes in contact with.
This is important because it means something to
the next question:

<<  And is this going to be an Earth language, or an
alternate world? >>

I go for an alternate world. This leaves me free for
choosing characteristics of other languages.

<<  Any other ideas you guys have for details needed to
begin are welcome... >>

Is there a grammar and/or some texts available
to start with?
