cases) compose messages in gothic, translate gothic, etc. I know that
some have also made little conversations and such. A while ago when
Eric and I first began this list on the gmx site, we tried to start a
chat room (gothic-l) on undernet but apparently it was not "active"
enough to be considered for domain. From early on, of course, we have
encouraged those who wish to attempt posts in gothic (including
translations for everyone).

I've never heard of any. It might be interesting to look into something
like that, a gothic language club in your neighbourhood. But i'm sure
you would run into problems of attendance and misunderstanding (gothic-l
tends to be misunderstood as dealing with the subculture movement
centered around death and darkness)

riddles, songs, poems, idioms, expressions, and translations of
classical works. The opus is still small, but I think we could assemble
something online if anyone is up to the task of extracting the
contributions made to the list compiling them. I will be losing my
csulb account in the spring, so I couldn't promise to use my space.
