The List

From IBWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

The List is the roll of all the Members of Lla Societad dill Bethisad and is considered as writ in non-erodable stone. It describes who's who and who is in charge of what. Older Members tend to be those who had staked out a physical territory and/or an invented language. Many, especially newer Members find themselves in charge of concepts more than specific locations. Most older Members have also looked into concepts as well. I think this is starting to provide needed depth to the project. The project is no longer just a list of countries. We're starting to see what they're up to and what they're thinking and believing in as well. A very Good Thing indeed!

Even though a particular Member might have claimed an especial country, this does not mean that he "owns" it exclusively. Others may seek to contribute ideas or offer to collaborate. Still others may seek to work on a territory laid aside by an inactive or less active Member.

Much of IB is still unknown: there is still a lot of room, not so much for new countries as for the undiscovered landscapes of politics, art, culture and the like.

Ill Bethisad has been a going concern since November 1997 (when it was known as the Brithenig Project) and has accrued eleventy-six Members. Of course, not everyone who started with us is still around -- people's interests wax and wane, while others have only stopped by for a quick cup o tea before moving on.

Location of members

Membership is based on willingness to play amicably in Andrew's Sandbox - Ill Bethisad - an imaginary world akin to the primary world. Members need only the desire to take up a region of the world and populate it with their own invented cultures and languages, taking into account the general outline of history as it stands and working within the principal of w gegraphotai gegraphotai / quod scripsi scripsi. While Andrew Smith's Brithenig language and the country it lives in are a bit older, dating back to the early to mid 1990s, Ill Bethisad (or the Brithenig Project as it was known early on) as a communal project really got going in late 1997 and early 1998.

Members are required to pay a £6/-/- annual fee, wear ceremonial robes and tricorn hats to all official functions and must above all else bring their imaginations to bear in the project. The Annual Semiannual Tertuil lla Societad, or Society Dinner is held quarterly. Nonpayment of Membership Dues will result in the hiring of a Helvetian chef yet again. This is a threat!

The List is arranged mythochronologically. If there's an obvious discrepancy, kindly fix. The typical information found in any given entry is the Member's name, Brithenig pseudonym if applicable, pertinent honorifics, in brackets []: activity status, month and year of membership, activity on the Sessiwn, invented language in italics, chief territory of interest, default territories or cooperative territories, and finally any other area of particular interest such as mapmaking or detailing of technological aspects of life.

Many Members are quite active geopoets and language inventors outside of IB; only their IB related interests are noted here. Kindly refer to Sprongs Peerage for other pertinents.

A denotes "active Member";

C denotes "candidate Member" -- someone who seems likely to hang around as a positive contributor to the project, who after a time will be made a regular Member;

D indicates Defender of Ill Bethisad, member of the Anti-Spam League.

H indicates an honorary member, a status granted for certain special circumstances, like the anti-spam warriors on the old wiki;

I denotes "inactive Member", i.e., someone who might still maintain an IB related conlang or conculture page but does not actively participate in day to day discussions;

O denotes "occasional contributor", i.e., someone who offered a single idea or helped with a couple areas and then withdrew from activity; also someone who pops in occasionally

R denotes "retired Member", i.e., one who has more or less permanently withdrawn from the project;

S indicates member of the reconstituted Sessiwn;

W indicates a Member who is actively a member of the Order of the Tireless Wikiwardens

F indicates a Member who is active at ill Pub New the Societad's pub of preference, Face Book (just head down the lane and turn right at the pub, it's first pub on the left, after the pub).
