Chrysophylax Default message aside, welcome :D Perhaps once you've gotten all comfy and settled the mysterious maintenance gnomes will bestow the magistrate upon thee. ;) Chrysophylax 15:53, 12 November 2012 (CET)
It is demanded now so my conquest of the internet can proceed! :P
Holy shit shit needs to be wrked on xD as soon as I can I will start going crazy on getting thigns up to standard with templates and all.
I have placed the following message at the walls of a dozen prominent members:
This site is being evacuated, due to the extended period of downage. We are instead moving to the more stable host Linguifex. Work is under way importing and adapting the wiki to our needs. We'd therefore be truly happy should you decide to export your language there! :D
All the best, / Waahlis and the rest of the administration.

I know only one person, though it should be in Serbia then but he could mask his IP or something. Rostov is the name he goes by Emperor Zelos 13:42, 13 November 2012 (CET)
- Hm, doesn't sound like Rostov-na-don from what has been experienced of him (gnomes speaking). Nor do the IPs match-up. I'll keep an eye out. Or eight. ——— Gnomes. (talk) 13:49, 13 November 2012 (CET)
He is the only one I know of, anyone else I cannot think of Emperor Zelos 13:51, 13 November 2012 (CET)
I like my hypothesis better, you being a spider :P Emperor Zelos 14:43, 13 November 2012 (CET)
wee bit cliché, it needs to be language related! :P
But good non-the-less. Emperor Zelos 16:35, 13 November 2012 (CET)
I really do struggle find the joy in such attacks. Waahlis 17:25, 13 November 2012 (CET)
There is none, but lets make htis the best Conlang wiki there is
Your AT templates.
These AT templates of yours should not be listed in any other category than [[Category:Experimental]] until they are accepted by the community or administration by voting. I have changed a lot of them, but the rest is up to you. Waahlis 19:37, 13 November 2012 (CET)
Something made them be all ugly. Do you know if anyone has messed with the CSS lately? I can't seem to find any changes that could explain the sudden eugh. Chrysophylax 20:16, 13 November 2012 (CET)
Nope, it worked after i had with the CSS to do yesterday or the day before, but Waahlis have been going crazy with his work so he probably accidently stumbled upon some cord he shouldn't have pulled Emperor Zelos 20:18, 13 November 2012 (CET)
Most probably, I've moved a template. I couldn't be bothered with redirects, so by changing a template in the Template:Usebox, you should be fine. Waahlis 20:32, 13 November 2012 (CET)
Light the torches and fetch the pitchforks and let's bring mob justice to Waahlis!
:P Emperor Zelos 20:34, 13 November 2012 (CET)

Vote and discussion and opinions and miscellaneous
Hey, you! Yeah, you!
I call for a vote! Waahlis 13:43, 5 January 2013 (CET)
Here's what I say to it! <url>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuKgtqP8kr8</url>
I don't get it... :( Should I? :( Emperor Zelos 21:08, 20 January 2013 (CET)
Contionary testing grounds
As requested, here's the contionary testing ground for you: ethnema.
Translations are left out, but feel free to add a section! If you could enable the tables they have on wiktionary that'd be great, as well! :D Waahlis 21:15, 20 January 2013 (CET)
How is like we had on the old wiki? it is the only one I can do without more java Emperor Zelos 21:10, 20 January 2013 (CET)
I see. I am no good with coding, so I didn't now... :/ Well, if so it is excellent!
Waahlis 21:15, 20 January 2013 (CET)
I want the whole add shit thing, but we need to java....HILLBILLY! you do that Emperor Zelos 21:30, 20 January 2013 (CET)
2. The huge/complex script at wiktionary is at the moment out of reach for my skill set. I am not particularly good at JS at all. So, again, I reiterate Waahlis' suggestion. Let's have a nice cookie-chat with the wiktionary people. Chrysophylax 22:32, 20 January 2013 (CET)
You're right, they are not the same. I am just lazy.
But You do it how you want/can, I'll fix the templates around as thats my field :) Emperor Zelos 22:34, 20 January 2013 (CET)
Changed it again. Tell me what you think. :) Waahlis 15:49, 13 February 2013 (CET):

Heeelloooouu....! Waahlis 11:16, 15 February 2013 (CET)
HIII! looks awesome Emperor Zelos 18:16, 15 February 2013 (CET)
Excellent. I'll interpret that as having the administration on my side. I declare Faccia our new Main page! Waahlis 21:57, 15 February 2013 (CET)
How are you?
What did I miss?
(Why am I spacing the sentences out? :P)
But, seriously, what can I help with?
I am fine, thank you, glad to have you back.
You can help by making articles, check out my guide for con-scripts and such :) Emperor Zelos 07:26, 2 March 2013 (CET)
Yea, I saw your script guide. I do have to say, it was really good.
Anything you have knowledge in :) Emperor Zelos 19:08, 2 March 2013 (CET)
I'll probably due it when the time is right Emperor Zelos 06:34, 3 March 2013 (CET)
Reply: Rinap Tenses
Yes, indeed... Thanks! It's confusing how in Finnish we talk about having four tenses: present, imperfect (apparently also called preterite), perfect and pluperfect. On the other hand, aspects in Finnish are rare. So I'll change the 'imperfective' into 'simple past', right? Did you happen to notice any other mistakes (since I bet there are)? User talk:Juhhmi
Whazzup? :) Waahlis 18:29, 24 March 2013 (CET)
Took you long enough! :P hows things comrade? Emperor Zelos 18:36, 24 March 2013 (CET)
Sorreee, I'm a busy man... :P
I'm good, deciphering an old grammar for Asaari, which is too complicated for me to understand. And I made it. :S
You? You seem to have something of a Umbrean renaissance? Waahlis 18:39, 24 March 2013 (CET)
No excuses! Back into the coal mines!
What do you mean a renissance? Emperor Zelos 18:44, 24 March 2013 (CET)
Asaari, yeah. :p You haven't seen it? :)
Oh, I meant a sudden renewed interest in it. :) Waahlis 18:50, 24 March 2013 (CET)
I am in the phase of it :) It is getting closer and closer to completion and I can now taste it. Emperor Zelos 18:53, 24 March 2013 (CET)
How nice. :) I'd love to see some more examples of it though. :P Waahlis 19:41, 24 March 2013 (CET)
I will do it once I feel the basic shit I can concieve is done :P Emperor Zelos 19:46, 24 March 2013 (CET)
Sounds reasonable enough. :) Waahlis 19:59, 24 March 2013 (CET)
I am currently attempting to decied wether its V or S framed, fuck choices Emperor Zelos 20:59, 24 March 2013 (CET)
Verb framed for Asaari. Just love it. Attian was satellite framed, so I want a contrast. :) Waahlis 21:08, 24 March 2013 (CET)
I love verb framed, yet I am torn because I figuredo ut a system to easily derive direcitonal postpositions from locational ones a feature I really don't want to lose yet I cannot think of a use for them if I go verb framed. Emperor Zelos 21:10, 24 March 2013 (CET)

How it works is, let's say you wanted to write, "I'm eating bread." You would take the verb for eating (Which i haven't decided on yet), then since it's present tense, you draw a horizontal line above the verb with a dot in the center. If you didn't have this, the verb would be an infinitive. Next you add the person below it, in this case one dot since it's first person singular. A hyphen to the right would make it plural (we). There are four persons, the extra one being for singular anyone and for plural everyone. This is one symbol. The next symbol would be the bread symbol (A hemisphere with a vertical line in the center) with a symbol below that looks like "n" which makes it an object. The nice thing about this is you can switch them around, and it'll mean the same thing. The other grammatical symbols I have are the logical symbol for not (Meaning opposite) above the symbol, a "d" above a symbol to make it possessive, and a hyphen below a noun which is not a pronoun, which like with pronouns, makes the word plural. I'm also considering adding + and - below verbs to replace adverbs (much and little, for example much below running would make it quickly running, so it's "much" in the most suitable context). This pretty much makes nouns and verbs the only symbols that aren't grammatical.
To answer why they look geometrical, it's because I had simplicity in mind. They only look marginally like what they actually represent. If I had made them look like what they represent, I'd likely end up with something extremely similar to Whiteoglyphics. To explain the symbol in the center, to speak, The circle represents a head and the arc represents the speaker's arm, or the sound coming from his mouth. If you added an exclamation point between the two, you'd get to command.about half the verbs I have have a head, and only five verbs do not have body parts (is (=), move (->), change(->|), add(+), take(-)).
I have started, an almost finished, a new Main page. The old one broke when zoomed, was already too large for the window in certain browsers, and did not work at all on mobile devices.

Tried on my iPad, works fine, i approve it.

First Linguifex Relay
Here's the torch. I wish you all the best.
I think I need to forfit this, 2 days just isn't enough time. Emperor Zelos 06:53, 8 September 2013 (CEST)
Hi Zelos! Would you mind voting for the featured language? :) We've reached a stalmate. :P Waahlis 19:41, 22 January 2014 (CET)
Done now Emperor Zelos 19:57, 22 January 2014 (CET)
Thanks for the help
Sorry to have (nearly) blanked my page. I'm so excited to have an entire wiki dedicated to my language that I got carried away. You are completely right. I love linguifix and am very happy here, but I've decided to make this my main project for the foreseeable future. LCS was kind enough to offer me space to go hog wild. But I do love this place too! --Aquatiki (talk) 04:25, 12 May 2014 (CEST)
I am sad to se you go but I hope you'll have fun :) Drop by sometime if you can! Emperor Zelos 06:35, 12 May 2014 (CEST)
