Welcome to /r/conlangs! This subreddit is focused on the discussion of conlangs, tools and activities to aid you in the construction of your own conlang, and creating a community environment where we can all enjoy conlanging together.

While this subreddit is not restricted to accomplished conlangers, a certain level of expertise is expected. We recommend that you lurk for a while to learn the basics.

Rules

1. Civility
We ask for this subreddit to remain a place of discussion and polite debate about conlangs. Do not use insults, especially those of a personal nature.

2. Topic and relevancy
We ask that all posts be on topic and relevant to conlanging. Meta threads are of course an exception.

3. Discussion and questions
We ask that you formulate your questions in a way that promotes discussion. Please keep the close-ended questions in the Small Discussions threads.

4. Disallowed posts
Repeated and frequent posts about a single conlang will be removed, do not spam the subreddit with a single project and let others have their space too. Low-effort posts are equally disallowed.

5. No Cross, No Crown
Posts about religion or politics are only allowed if they focus on the conlanging aspect and coining words for concepts. This subreddit is not a place for political or religious debate.

6. Adult and shocking content
Adult or shocking content has to be signaled by a special flair. Porn and gore are still forbidden on the subreddit, but we understand the need to form vocabulary for those topics.

7. Post-specific rules
For some types of posts, we are establishing a set of rules. This is in order to promote discussion and constructive feedback about those posts.

Script posts require more than just a picture of the script. Please provide a sentence in it, its translation, explanations and background information for the script.

Collaborations can get a full post if you already have a decent amount of material about them, for instance an outline for a grammar. Otherwise, please keep them to the Small Discussions thread.

Phoneme inventories posts go in the Small Discussions thread. Seriously, if you just want to know if your phonology is sound, ask there.

Natlang re-orthographies follow the same rule as the phoneme inventories.

Appeals

If you feel your content has been wrongfully removed, you may message the moderators to appeal the decision.
