Montmorency, it's good to see you posting here. No, it isn't a fluke. It's because so few people are using the site now. HTLAL is a mere shadow of itself these days. It's a "dead forum walking". It's still alive, but its life has gone to here. People finally got fed up enough to do something about it. Hope you enjoy the new forum!


Thanks @iguanamon . :-) It's certainly nice to see so many old names, and some formerly "banned" returnees.

It's understandable that people have stopped being active on the old forum. My worry about that is that this perhaps makes it more likely than otherwise that FX will finally pull the plug on it. And as I think we all know, there is still a wealth of good stuff there, that it would be a shame to lose forever.
I don't see a solution for this. Well, I see a few theoretical solutions, but none of them will work without the full co-operation of you-know-who.

If I have understood you correctly, here's an okay Azeri keyboard: link

Re: My new username: It comes from this song by Şövkət Ələkbərova:


Allow me to translate the first stanza:

Pıçıldaşın, pıçıldaşın ləpələr
Bəlkə mənə bir sözünüz var sizin
Buruq qazır mənim ömür yoldaşım
Qayıdırmı qucağından dənizin


Whisper, whisper, waves
Perhaps you have something to tell me
My life partner is drilling a well
Is he returning from the sea's embraces?

I meant whether there's a standard for replacing symbols with smth more easily available, like ae for ä in German.

I was just on HTLAL this afternoon and found this site...and not as much new on HTLAL as I would have hoped. I've done a few things with languages in the past few months and years and am coming very close to getting a bit more serious this summer about a "new" language. I'm very happy to see this board active.

Thank you for the welcome, Serpent. I posted on HTLAL on and off over the years. When there were fewer posts, I ended up posting less and less often. It looks like I'm far from the only one in that situation.

I've got 5 posts now but don't see anything under my User Control Panel to link my account at the old HTLAL site... :|
