THE LIST: Members of Lla Societad dill Bethisad

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 constructed 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 chronologically. If there's an obvious discrepancy and you'd care to let me know, I'll rearrange. 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, conlang in italics, chief territory of interest in boldface, default territories or cooperative territories (in regular typeface), and finally any other area of particular interest such as mapmaking or detailing of technological aspects of life.

Many Members are quite active conlangers and conculturists outside of IB; with a couple especial exceptions, only their IB related interests are noted here.

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 Antispam 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 whose activity is only or primarily on the Wiki
