Re: New auxlang: Atlas

I also kinda meant "wow these are cool language names, what do they mean*? any other cool names, including those for conlangs you abandoned?" *well atlas is relatively obvious but I wonder if you had any specific meaning in mind :D and maybe it's not actually obvious of course. rodina mean...

I like the name.
Yeah, I find the names of both conlangs fascinating and it would be fun to know more about them :) I also wonder what other conlangs the OP has created ;)

Re: Super Challenge 2016-17 DISCUSSION THREAD

So any idea what happened to the tweets that were acknowledged but don't show up on the list? As for the characters, well we should be able to fix them by editing the items... the problem is that i don't know what they were in the first place :lol: :cry: (look at my slavic challenge, those in cyrill...

Re: Considerations on using dubbed material and the McGurk Effect

Honestly I'm so used to the lips not matching in dubbed L1 movies that I simply don't expect them to match. I definitely didn't hear da the first time, it sounded like a weird non-English consonant a few times and then the last one was a clear ba. With my eyes closed it was a mix of ba and argh I do...

Re: New auxlang: Atlas

When it comes to prepositions, I do think the English use is overkill :P The three meanings of "by" are really completely different. Many languages have less overlap than English.

Re: Super Challenge 2016-17 DISCUSSION THREAD

As far as I can tell, rdearman hasn't confirmed that the tweets have to be sent once again. You were the first to notice (point out) the issue so now it has to be investigated I suppose.

Re: The Super Challenge - Why 5,000 pages, or 150 hours?

This is where it began. After a couple of weeks we all agreed to change a book to 100 pages, for a more consistent comparison and to make it a more realistic goal (note that it was originally for beginners). From 2014 we changed it to 50 pages. I do think that the goal is kinda arbitrary, and I've ...

Re: Super Challenge 2016-17 DISCUSSION THREAD

This was a problem moving from the old MySQL system on the the latest version. There were changes to the way UTF was stored. But can it be fixed? :shock: If not, I sure hope you have a backup from which I can fix those ????????'s by editing :o Or maybe we can keep the old format until the challenge...

Re: Super Challenge 2016-17 DISCUSSION THREAD

Yeah Luso did refer to them. It does seems like some tweets that the twitter bot did accept have now disappeared. On my page there doesn't seem to be any tweets between April 20 and May 27. Also, the "special characters" (diacritics and cyrillics) are only displayed correctly for the newer...
