Thanks elemtilas. It's true, I haven't been participating in the forums much. I do visit Isfendil's Discord server, though. And creatively, it's actually been a good time for me. I've been working on a single conlang, Nakarian, for the better part of the past year - the words I post here are for/from that language. I try to motivate myself to start a thread about it but my limited free time doesn't help...
