Thanks for bringing to my attention your preferred way of subscribing and posting to the discussion group. I'm looking into mods for phpBB to allow people to continue using forums in the way that Jim and jan Male prefer, if it will be possible.
My reasons for moving the forums to my own domain were:
- To host the discussions and content on my own terms (instead of being dependent on a third party)
- To better organize the discussions into sub-forums, so people can choose to participate in the topics and sub-topics that interest them instead of being flooded with all messages<br />(This also lets me participate more actively in the discussions instead of being the elusive creator that only appears once every 3 years. I want to narrow the gap between my vision and development of Toki Pona and the community's wanting more information about my project.)
- To use advertising to recoup for the upfront unpaid time I've been dedicating to writing the upcoming book
Because it's taking me longer than anticipated to finish the book, I've begun publishing chunks of my drafts and content in the new Toki Pona wiki
, which replaces the old website. I'm also migrating relevant content from the old site to this wiki. When I feel the fleshed out content is stable and satisfactory, I will publish it in book format for all those of you who requested it. The book edition will also contain plenty of bonus material I have prepared.
I'm publishing the wiki content under a Creative Commons licence, such that fellow Tokiponeers can contribute their translations of my material in other languages if they want.
