I wanted to post this document somewhere, and this seemed the most relevant thread to do it:http://fiatlingua.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/fl-00000C-00.pdf
I really recommend you all take the time to read it, partly just because it's quite interesting. There's stuff about how a conlang community should work to allow for the language to grow and live, and why communitites fail, and stuff like that.
One of the points the author makes is that for a language to truly survive, there must be no governing body - anarchy is the way to go.
I find myself agreeing with him, but I also would note that we're not necessarily in the stage of Solresol where we truly have a 'baseline' language, and for that to happen we definitely do need a system of agreeing upon standards. However, it may be that once we're done with that, the governing body should step aside, being in some sense 'obsolete'.
He also says that there shouldn't be a set of rules about the language, that everything should be defined based on usage. I do find myself disagreeing - I really think in our case it would be very valuable to have a set of immutable rules (trying to keep them as general as possible, but still existing). Perhaps that's because we're trying to 'revive' a language, instead of 'constructing' one, so we probably want to hold to some specific parameters?
Anyway - the article is good, and it's just some food for thought. Especially since our community tends to go through these phases of very minimal activity - it'd be nice to fix that.
