This is for posts which don't contain a particular symbol. You know which it is; it's what authors with constraints usually pick. Can you avoid this symbol, which is in so many important words? If so, try to show us all your skill by posting.

That's right. So your post is OK, but kind of short.

Also, you can say "don't count" if you want to.

occaisionally particular symbols ought not occur in writing.

any writing without said symbol is worthy of many props. that symbol is hard to do without.

Longplay, you should know that an additional worthy word for "symbol" is "glyph", so as to avoid vocabularly stagnation.

thanks. most of the words I could think of for that sort of thing would not do with this constraint. 'glyph' it is.

This is silly, folks. It's just an odd "i" anyway. As in "Bambi". Same pronounciation. Not using it constraints writing, okay, but it has no impact on quality.

That glyph is not simply a modification of "I". Only our lingua(I am using words in linguas not ours--I am able to do this, right?) has two vocalic symbols in such a way. Its original sound was magis(using Latin in this loco(again Latin)) similar to an "ay" or that in a main in this comic which isn't Sid. And that second sound I was saying is not first in that non-black rook's autonym.

(good god, that was hard to say)

Do you know of Christian Bok's []UNOIA? That man crafts a particular story with a particular glyph; a story for [], a story for "A", a story for "I", a story for "O", and a story for "U": http://www.ubu.com/cont[]mp/bok/[]unoia_final.html

What is this "this" that you claim is found by you and I?

It is a corrollary of what was said by you not in this post, or prior to it, but prior to that. 'I and you' was an allusion to a similar pronoun that had the symbol that is off-limits in this topic. Although this pronoun would, in fact, sound good, I could not allow it. (Also i wish that this forum was 'Chat with limitations')


this has a big quantity of difficulty with comparison to how it looks.

'limitation chat' would work. it is not ok to quantify with any old word.

Until now I did not try such awkward forms of wordplay. I think that a book, "Gatsby," of (minimum) 5000 words, has not our taboo glyph. But I know not who did author said book.

Also, a book known as "A Void" contains no taboo-glyphs.

Try for 200-plus posts in this topic; a similar topic on a forúm* I visit got up to 205 posts prior to fading away into oblivion.

En el léxico de México, un símbolo occure como el "símbolo común", pero lo no es el símbolo "e".

Es difícil escribir y no poder escribir un símbolo específico. ¡Dios mío!

*I did a bit of post-fixing. Forúm without that additional mark will turn it into this word, which sadly contains a taboo glyph.

URLs should not hold constraints like such in my opinion.
