Sorry the old ones had to be destroyed for the greater good.
Well, scitte.
Good thing the Wayback Machine exists, I think I left one or two ideas perish.

Re: What have you been reading lately? (non-linguistic ed.)

The Changeling Series by Steve Feasey (2009 +). Got hooked on the first volume (German translation I grabbed from my local library) and now I'm reading the other volumes in English – accents included. Additional info: It's contemporary/urban fantasy, featuring werewolves, vampires, angels, and othe...

Would anyone care if I started conlanging again
I would care, positively.
Come back to conlanging and conworlding if you have the energy and time to do so. [:)]

Re: West Saxon Grammar Sketch v 0.0.1

I'm definitely subscribing. I saw an older version of this on the ZBB and directly took some inspiration from it for my own Wínlandisch [ˈwæɪ̯nˌlandɪʃ] (Gothic -> “West Saxon” -> “English”), but I'm stuck in between Old and Middle Wínlandisch and didn't pick it back up since 2015 or so… Anyways, I'd...

Re: Weird Dream Thread

I dreamt that I played a game very similar to Sim City 3000 – what differed was that I could add extras (central heating for a few Simoleons, for example) to the buildings, which would improve the quality of life for my Sims.
Should I go to EA with this dream-derived idea?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Aided by a creative outburst while I was listening to some music, I drew the (near-)perfect picture for my Conlang Cards this year.
The only thing I have to do is to exchange some buildings and add some text (and re-draw it in ink).
