As you may have noticed the chatrooms subforum is gone. This is due to the website for the chatrooms deleting them due to inactivity. Had I known about this, I wouldn't have set up the chatrooms on that website. Obviously they weren't used that much anyway, but I still feel obligated to give the members of this forum some way to interact live with each other. So if anyone can recommend a site that allows free chatrooms without deadlines like this, it would be most appreciated. Until then, you can use the built-in chat, now at the bottom of the forum.
The second update is on our new alternative language subforum. I would like for alternative languages to have both a forum for discussing lojban, as well as an off-topic forum for people to discuss both in their native language. There has already been a French forum created, and I've now heard from multiple sources about a Japanese lojban following. I'd like to hear from our members about this. What language forums should be made? Help from native/secondary speakers in creating the forums would be greatly appreciated, as I don't like to rely solely on a translator.
I never quite understood the need for another chatroom; #lojban on freenode is very active and the best place to go for anyone wishing to talk in or about Lojban.
As for the language subforums, I'd simply wait until there is a high demand for a particular language. French and Japanese are good candidates, but I wouldn't add a bunch of languages that aren't going to be used.
