You have to give the whispers, like honey.

I waited! I found two dreams.

The ugly truth depends on more suspects, remember.

Truth is without a doubt the only one I remember.

Bless you for violations of the code.

It is not revolutionary, it is difficult to diagnose.

You are tucked away in hard decisions, to distinguish which g_d-celebrated ideas we can mention.

Congratulations on your decision to hide.

Saluton!

I am currently learning Lojban, Esperanto, and Toki Pona.

I noticed you wanted to join/start a linguistic cult. Common Honey is exactly what you desire.

    "I" "am (to be present tense)" "female" "changed (to change past tense)" "male" for trans for example (I really have no idea if this is how lojban works, I'm guessing)

Unfortunately, gender dysphoria and the transgender experience are way more complicated than that. It isn't that they are becoming a woman or a man; it is that they already are one but are taking the necessary steps to match their minds and their bodies.

Read Julia Serano's "Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity" and Antonio Demasio's "The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion in the Making of Consciousness" for an introduction to the basic ideas involved.

    And if that turns out to be a really long word then just shorten it like Esperanto's Mojosa (MOderna-Juna-Stilo, or Modern Young Style).

This does not work for Lojban due to its word-formation rules. Lojban requires what is called "self-segregating morphology", so any words that violate a certain pattern will wreak havoc on the rest of the grammar.

    I don't really see how LGBT terms would be useful often however, I mean, if you go to a party and meet someone you would say "Hey I'm CardboardLamp", instead of "Hey I'm CardboardLamp, I'm a color of race, sexual orientation, age, etc etc etc", unless you're at an event specially held for LGBT members.

Most Lojbanic expression happens through text in the form of chatrooms and there are a lot of bisexual people in Lojbanistan, so it is only natural to include them.

    And could you tell me what you mean by "retains mostly cis and heterosexual concepts despite known speakers"?

I am discussing issues of cisnormativity and cisgender privilege.

    And is it not about cultural neutrality? It seems like you want it to be diverse,

You can't be culturally neutral without diversity.

I don't speak Toki Pona, but I am aware of it.

It is a mystery-based game. Piece together the clues to solve it.

As I've said in the past, Nomic is one of those games that is extremely difficult to keep active. It requires invested and interested players, and a system to keep the momentum going.

Are we still playing? Please don't let it die before it begins.

Ratify PHILOSOPHICAL-SURFACE.

shanoxilt  ·  2607 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubnomic 2: Ruleset WEIRD-QUORUM - Rules on rules

    2.3 ratification of ruleset propositions shall occur 96 hours after the post of the next ruleset under the following conditions:

I really insist that you make ratification occur at a maximum of 24 hours.

shanoxilt  ·  2607 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubnomic 1: Ruleset CREATIVE-KEYCHAIN - Rules on beginning

I would shorten it to 24 hours maximum (or 6 hours minimum).

shanoxilt  ·  2608 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Hubnomic 1: Ruleset CREATIVE-KEYCHAIN - Rules on beginning

This is a common feature of this game. Unless you provide incentives to continue playing it, Nomic is quickly abandoned. Without a short time limit on ratification, people simply forget about it.

If translations count, then Klingon Pop Warrior's cover of "Kiss Me" should suffice.
