The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This discussion was created before the implementation of the Language proposal policy, and it is incompatible with the policy. Please open a new proposal in the format this page has been converted to (see the instructions). Do not copy discussion wholesale, although you are free to link to it or summarise it (feel free to copy your own comments over). —{admin} Pathoschild 02:58, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

  1. Oppose until people willing to work on it are found because the proposer, who doesn't have an account on Meta like they should, seems to be proposing languages for the sake of it. Nikki 19:45, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Maybe this language could survive thanks to Wikipedia, and native speakers could refind interest towards it. Languages often disappear because speakers believe that they are not important, but this is WRONG! All languages are important.-- 20:17, 30 April 2011 (UTC)
