Thanks! That's the intention.

Yes I do. And I've added two links to the imho best collections
of links to conlangs.

Well, I don't want to add too much. I just want it to contain
the most basic, most important and best links.

Yes, but Langmaker really belongs in the "General" category
since it contains a little bit of everything.

Yup. I thought of both this morning, and when I to my joy
discovered that both of them are regularly updated, I added
them both. [Thanks also to Yitzik for pointing out Richard
Kennaway's site as well.]

Yes. I think I've added the most widely used and recommended
sites, but if you have others which are better, please do tell!

Unicode and Fontmaking programs might be of interest. Those
could be added under "Writing systems". Links to grammars and
courses to natlangs could be found through "Yourdictionary.com",
but there is perhaps need for another site like that.

A new category "Mailing lists" would be great! Good idea! If
you could collect the links, I'd be ever so grateful. Wasn't
there a posting about the different mailing lists recently?
And of course, Yitzik's weekly mail contains addresses to
all the "workshops".

Thanks, I will!

(And I've started making a grammar for my new conlang, which
has a name now: Piata.)
