I got a spark of inspiration for my ehw #conlang tonight and I ended up adding a new vowel (/i/ with orthography <ie>) and some additional utility markers: "nie" /ni/ ties an adjective to a noun to create a new noun rather than just describing the noun, and "in" /ɪn/ as the present-participial adjective marker to pair with the pre-existing "ed" that behaved as a past-participial adjective!
I also brainstormed a writing system, but it's not quite ready yet.
This is great:
I don't really *want* to start a new #conlang since I have so many incomplete ones, BUT I really want to make a personal conlang for general use... hmm.
Oh, nope, false alarm. I was viewing the site from http instead of https. I'll have to contact people with accounts who haven't logged in since before the 2.0 update so I can set up auto-redirect to https soon...
I just noticed that somehow I broke public libraries on #Lexiconga with the sync fix I uploaded earlier... I'm not sure how, but I'm looking into it now.
Wow! Someone just donated $60 for my work on #Lexiconga! That's so amazing!! I'm so happy it's helpful to people other than just me! 😃
I just *finally* fixed an issue that's been a problem in #Lexiconga since last July that prevented words from syncing updates correctly between devices/browsers, and the cause was so stupid that I'm embarrassed I didn't fix it sooner.
Essentially, I was telling the program to check if a value existed, and if it *did* exist, that it should *not* use it. Oops. 🤦♂️
Anyway, I'm glad I finally got that taken care of! Extra thanks to the user who submitted an issue and got me to really look into it!
I still need to redo the cool cursive script I had before updating everything, but that'll be a pretty big project now that the letters are so different. The next step, though, will probably be to move everything into a font so the RTL display doesn't freak out anymore...
Whoops, failed #Lexember again lol
