:That might be a good idea. In the meantime, the Hikoomayii story happened, which, since we take ages here for anything anyway, could be moved to its own page somewhere and made the featured creation. I think we can all agree that it deserves to be that at some point.

:It's the latter. As for which form to use with a definite time adverbial, I think that without any other temporal constructs in the same clause, either goes, simply because non-fixed reference forms are -- hence the name -- unmarked for time. So if I say:
[g this]oro[/g][g -LOC]-wag̃o[/g] [g yesterday]buwa[/g] [g hole]jabsu[/g] [g be]uru[/g][g -AOR]-∅[/g][g -3s]-g̃[/g]

Old Inggirian Verbal Morphology (Part 1)
:(crosspost from my universe, boo)
The inflectional verbal morphology of Old Inggirian divides itself, albeit not neatly, into three sets of forms: bound forms, nominal forms and finite forms. Finite forms are those forms that carry personal marking, and nominal forms are those which may head the body of a relative clause. The finite forms, apart from being the only ones to carry personal marking, may only appear at the end of a sentence or clause. The nominal forms, although frequently ...

:I think it is again time to look for something else to put on the front page! Current strong contender is Comrade Twabs' [http://anthologi.ca/?id=260198|entry] into the Heterodoxy Series of conlanging advice, which gets my vote. However, since his work has graced the front page for several months already, alternatives are of course very solicited.

:Annie has essentially no userbase outside of the people on IRC, presumably also as a result of the fact that it was so unstable before. Conlanging has also strongly remained on the Zeeb because there are things going on there and unlike new posts on a PHPBB changes to Universes here are not broadcast to other users, which is p bad on a "sharing things" view.
I guess also that nobody advertises this site anywhere, probably for the above reasons.
I guess my new year's resolution ...
