I wish the "A picture a day" thread was never closed. It was much less annoying than the current trend of "a picture thread a day"...

Ordinarily, I'd agree with the folks up-thread, but this sounds fun. I'll have to make a version or two.

Top: /ðɪŋ.ɗɔd.ɗɔd.vɾɪə̯ŋ/

Logo: /qo.ka.qo.ɾa/ + Flourishes
Edit: On second thought, one was enough. That took entirely too much effort. However, I did make two brand new characters for this. And, of course, the "please drink" slogan in Mandarin isn't rendered exactly the same in Vingdagese. It is more like "(they.sg) often drink, please" which is more like "please drink (regularly)."

Added in IPA for the characters

In Ular, it's relatively common to adapt foreign logos and add to them their Ular reading, mostly because most Ularians don't speak English (they learn Mandarin Chinese as first language, and Cantonese or Japanese as second language).

Note that the characters 革歌革朋 should not be read as in Chinese (gé gē gé péng), but rather as their Ular equivalent (kó kà kó lhár). 朋, although not matching the English pronunciation exactly, was used due to the positive connotation of its normal meaning "friend".

Okay... So, this thread is a LOT harder to understand without the picture.

I am sure what they actually meant is "don't spam the forum with daily pic threads" and not "remove the pic from the only one thread where it actually mattered".

I quote it if you prefer:
you don't have to make a thread beginning with an image
I understand in a forum we must respect the wishes of its owners...
The thread "pic of the day" was closed by Aszev before he answers my PM question about some detail to respect what he want... That is his prerogative... nothing to tell about...
End of debate...

Please don't put words in mods' mouths. The sentence you've quoted does not in any way imply you should edit existing posts.

No more need to discuss this in-thread. If you are unclear on what, if any, action you should take in this or other threads, you can continue the PM conversation.
