Joseph Staleknight just sent his conlang group an e-mail inviting
comments on his Langmaker page, and initially, I found this
kind of bizarre.  As I knew them, Langmaker pages for a given
conlang were very short, giving specific answers to specific
questions, and providing an external link.  Then I took a look
at his entry:

http://www.langmaker.com/db/Sarga

This got me to thinking: now that Langmaker is a wiki, why
can't all the conlang pages be like this?  Why not expand them
to include examples of case declensions, orthography, verb
paradigms--a little mini version of an actual website dedicated
to the language?  To the curious that want to take a look at
languages but don't necessarily want to go through an entire
website, this might be quite helpful.  And since Langmaker is
better known than any of the other conlang wikis, I think it's
a good way to get language info out there.

I realize that this idea may have occurred to many already, but
just in case, I thought I'd post.  Now I'm going to go and start
reworking all my Langmaker pages.  :)
