Does anyone know of an online community anything like this for conlangers?
I guess to some extent if I were to make a language for a country I'm going to map, it'd be slightly relevant here, or at least at the CBG (which seems kinda dead?), but I figure it'd be nice with a friendly bunch of folks like around here, focusing on language construction and such.

The CBG isn't dead at all. Its just much smaller and tighter knit than the CG. In fact the CBG has a resident linguist (limetom) if you want to contact him about conlang ideas. He's already done a bit on the topic.

Nice to know - I guess compared to this place, most small communities seem a bit slow-moving Also, I suppose, showing off your half-way-done map is going to draw a lot of ideas and comments because it's at least somewhat likely you'll finish, while showing off a half-done compaign world will give you mostly shrugs. They are quite aplenty, after all, and most never go anywhere. Ah well...

Thanks y'all - going to register on the zompist board, looks like they know where their towels are
I'm hoping to start work on a conlang and blog about the progress using my WordBuilder app.
When you get a chance, can you report back on your experience there?
I had a looksie at their forums, and even though I've spent a good bit of free time over the past couple years studying and learning what I can about linguistics, I still found a good chunk of what I read there rather confusing and opaque (granted, studying over two years only in your free time still = relative noob), and the general tone occassionally off-putting.
On a semi-related note... how capable is your Word Builder (still haven't had a chance to install and play with it) in taking an existing word bank of imagined words and mutating them in patterned ways to form new words for a child language of the original language that provided the initial word bank?
I think, therefore I am a nerd.
