Hello k2attack, arpee hasn't been active on this forum in nearly four years, most of the threads you link to have been dead for twice as long, and you also link to a website that's apparently only on the Internet Archive. Yes, I would say those conlangs are dead, at least online.

Bon Wen had some potential. Around 2009 Arpee created Bon Wen, which is like Toki Pona (a 120 word language) but has 500-600ish words (Arpee created it as an international auxiliary language). Arpee tried to update/improve Bon Wen a few times, so Bon Wen is one of the conlangs he has worked most on. But later he gave up on Bon Wen. The other languages are like 18-to-100-word-languages! Arpee hasn't been active for a while though. Arpee has been critical of existing IALs e.g. Esperanto, Ido and Interlingua, but believes conlangs like LFN, Glosa, Neo Patwa and his own conlangs have more features of a "fit" global auxiliary language.

Bon Wen was like a pidgin/creole/patwa and had an international vocabulary, simple phonology/phonotactics and a simple grammar with no weird word ending changes (inflections/declensions). Compound words could be build by combining root words.

Well, I hope arpee eventually got his conlangs to a place that satisfied him, even if they aren't somewhere we can see them.
