I think that for tp dotsies should be reformulated. As has been noted, we need only four dots to do the tp alphabet. In that context, it would be useful, I think, if the vowels all sketched out the standard, making it easier to spot the difference between high and low, especially for free-floating dots. Of course, once a scheme is hit upon, the patterns of the 120 or so words would be quickly learned and the details unimportant except for proper adjectives. I haven't done any details on this, either working out the best vowel choices nor what would make the various words most distinctive.

It hasn't been stated here already, but it should be noted that you can edit it right on the site.

Personnally, I don't find dotsies particularily interesting. But if someone where to think up a better scheme for toki pona I'd be interested to see how it looks/works.
