To spruce up the front page, I've decided to add featured articles (amongst other things.) The idea is simple: much like Wikipedia's featured articles, you nominate a page and it gets featured. I'll try to rotate them once every month or week once things get rolling, though at first I'll take whatever I can get. Please submit a one-paragraph summary and I'll insert it appropriately on the front page. (Whoever submits first gets the first slot—we can do voting for the next one after that, once things get rolling.)

I nominate The Shape and Makeup of Ki Kuriku for being interesting and also reasons. I also leave it to the nominee to summarize their own work.

The universe is a cake; void, atmosplane, ocean, crust, mantle, molten liquid, iron slab, all held together by the slab's magnetogravitic field. They all extend out to infinity along the x and y axes, while the void extends into infinity along the upper z axis. Landmasses worthy of a real-world terrestrial planet, called toli (sg. tol), dot the endless ocean like islands - brought up above the surface of the ocean because of the all-important metaparticles, finicky little subatomic particles that can transmute into any other particle.

Perfect.

For the record I'd like to aim to have a new thing every month or so to start off, so keep writing! I'll bump this in June looking for the next feature.

May's almost over, so I'm looking for possible nominations for a June article! Anyone have any thoughts? (And if not, why aren't you writing?)

And... no one's suggested anything, so I'm going to nominate Şerau Teršelainja and The City of Umam. Neither is perfect, but I think with a bit of polish either could be excellent. Thoughts?

Şerau Teršelainja is good but almost unreadable due to lack of translation (glosses really don't make for good conveyers of meaning).

Still I second it, because I have an irrational dislike for the city of Umam and also I want to wait with nominating other things until they are more fleshy.

I was working on it yesterday, had a small introductory blurb added, but then I took an arrow to the knee and lost all my work. I'm going to attempt to fix it up again today. Yes, with a free translation.

Any progress on that polishing?

A bit belatedly, but yes!

It's that time again! Looking for article nominations. Anyone got anything finished?

Well, I have written some articles, of late, but self-nomination would be terrible.

This post might even itself be terrible. I'm not sure.

I did write what's probably the second- or third-most complete description of the history of Phrygian on the Net. (That should tell you something about what we know of Phrygian...)

Okay... it's been another month, and, honestly, looking through things I'm pretty darn tempted to put up Matrix's Salenzis from Maikros, or perhaps one of the pages within it. Pretty pictures, lots of text, coherently written. Please, please, please, anyone else, don't be afraid to self-nominate.

Has anything turned up at all?

Because if not I would like to nominate my own Creation Story and especially its translation into Kangshi, which I should be happy to finish and spruce up for you in the next few days.
