Talk:Lost Conlangs

From FrathWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Recently I was able to access a LangMaker page that contained the Babel text and translation for the Avench language. I extracted the information on the page to a word document, and thus was able to save it, but the information has since disappeared, and the link I followed to get to it has reverted to the disabled image described in the language's current entry. What is the standard operating procedure for documenting archived conlangs that have information available, but in such a manner that this information cannot be linked?--Pasafatu (talk) 13:56, 10 October 2013 (PDT)

I would make a page (here in Frathwiki), for example, Avench, copy and format the information and make note of the original url and that the link is currently broken. If you like, you could try contacting the language's creator (if known) to ask permission to do this, or if he has any other online resources. I.e., the language may not actually be lost!
