Is Frathwiki intended to include auxlangs, like Glosa, Esperanto, Loglan and my own Ceqli?

Yes. —Muke Tever | 07:24, 23 Aug 2004 (PDT)

...Um, so how is it not a place to promote auxlangs!? I'm interested as my main interest is 'practical' conlanging ( esp. Folkspraak). Xipirho

Describe, yes. Push, no. —Muke Tever | 15:47, 3 January 2007 (PST)

What FrathWiki shouldn't be

  • A place to describe well-known creations such as Esperanto or Tolkien's worlds. They got their own forums, and besides Tolkien is well represented in Wikipedia. We could have a page linking to Tolkien language stuff on Wikipedia, though. BPJ 14:10, 6 Jun 2005 (PDT)
  • Oops for got to mention my edit here.

A name suggests what something is. I'm curious why this Wiki is called the "Frathwiki" -- any particular meaning to "Frath"? I would infer a sense of the purpose of the Wiki from its name, but I am not familiar with "Frath". Interesting name!

Hmm, I never noticed this comment x.x "Frath" just happened to be my domain name (for various reasons), and as this was the wiki I was putting on it, the name just followed. (Of course there are a couple of other wikis on now, so it's not the frath wiki anymore...) —Muke Tever | 15:47, 3 January 2007 (PST)

Conlangs otherwise described?

I have a website with some pages describing conlangs I thought worth putting info on. Is it acceptable to add this info on this Wiki as well? And how about pages copied from the site, which already are under a license compatible with putting on here? -- BRG 14:39, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes. It's acceptable to make pages about languages described elsewhere here. Just make sure that anything you add that you don't have the rights to personally has its license followed; some of them can be pretty weird in their requirements (for example, cc-by-sa requires a link to the cc-by-sa license, name of the source/author, title of the original work, link to the original, and relationship to the original [e.g. 'incorporates text from...']--all that can fit into a template, of course). —Muke Tever | 14:21, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
