In the Language Subforums Management Discussion 2018 thread I wrote:All I know, by the way, is I am very much in favor of splitting up the NAIL forum. My "specialty" (if one can even call it a specialty) is in Iroquoian language. Where as I have dabbled a bit in random other NAILs, and am willing to help people find resources and other non-linguistic things, I am no help to people otherwise. I don't say this not as a negative outlook on myself, but rather was a fact.
I know Northern Iroquoian languages. But that doesn't mean that 1. The other languages encompassed by the NAIL subforum shouldn't have a home, 2. Nor am I unwilling to help anyone with any of the proposed language family subforums.(I'm not sure if I should mod any of these forums, but we don't have mods for every forum already, so....idk. Yes, I agree we should ideally have mods for every subforum, but this isn't a perfect world.)
I just think that we should play to the mods strengths, not make it something were people assume I know Lakota and be able to help them, for example.

And about being lonely in the subforums, well, there'd still be a general NAIL forum for the other language families and as a possible hub since games would be pretty dead in the subforums.
I feel the same say about Iroquoian.
