I think absolutely! I'll say this; /u/kittybecca's current idea is very cool but definitely is something of an advanced project, as it seems to presuppose each participant's comfort with making a language on their own. Perhaps, as a first project engaged in by the conlang-interested among us, something closer to "just a collaboratively designed language" (as per /u/shanoxilt's original posting), without the additional layers of simulated history (at first, at least) and independent work, might be a better first project for getting each other on the page and for developing a communicative foundation.

What do y'all think? (I suppose this should be a top level comment).

Also, yeah I think a matrix channel is a good idea. I don't know how to make one, though.

I'm really really interested in making a language but I have almost no experience with this sort of thing. I study historical linguistics but don't really know much about conlangs besides they exist. Can i still participate and will you all help me?

EDIT: could we make a matrix channel for discussions? It seems like Raddle is on thin ice and I don't want this idea and collaboration to die out if Raddle goes down

With what level of extra-conlang metadiscussion do you envision the interlanguage being created? In other words, would we more be designing it together, using English (or whatever) as a meta-language to do so, or would we try to communicate with each other using the languages we've created individually, and let the interlanguage take shape from those efforts without it being collectively designed?
