The good news is that I did take a database back up before the 'snap' so the data may be recoverable eventually. However, this is also a good reminder that if you want anything saved you should not rely on an internet forum.
Has there been any progress on this front?

Classical Ĝate n Tim Ar (hereinafter CT ) is a Tim Ar-O language and was spoken at the zenith of the Classical Period of Tim Ar history. It was the dom...

I created some new Tim Ar words and began work on a hieroglyphic script for them:

Why is "continents" in quotes? Are these really just large islands, subcontinents or continent-sized political units?
The first five are continent-sized political/cultural/geographic units that constitute a supercontinent. The remaining three are their own separate entities.
