Hello Ingvild and Anny -

I like your version of the writing of the sign, Ingvild...I can read  
that. Years ago we used to place a plain Nose Line in the center of  
the Facial Circle to indicate that the movement happens in front of  
the nose, even though the actual arrow is really written to the  
side..so your writing is similar to that...

But regarding placing writing choices in different SignPuddles...that  
is exactly what I do all the time...the various SignPuddles that are  
open to the public are meant to be the forum for discussing how to  
write a specific sign from a specific country...they are not formal  
published dictionaries...but a place to discuss...

If people would like to purchase a private SignPuddle space just for  
their dictionary, that can be done anytime...but to create another  
SignPuddle open to the public yet again, is not necessary... since we  
already have around 40 of them...it costs us time and money to setup  
another SignPuddle...so I think we can use what we have right  
now...just put your name down as the source and the editors from that  
country can decide what to do...that way if you see a sign from  
French-Switzerland which you wish to write, you can place it in their  
public SignPuddle for discussion, and it is easier for them to have  
it in there rather than have to add it later...it is a blessing  
really, that you took the time to write a sign from their country...

When I added my versions to the French-Swiss SignPuddle, I put my  
name down as a source so that Anny knew she could throw them out if  
she didn't like some of them...

I am creating a new SignWriting Shop where people can pay for a  
Private WebPuddle with a credit card in any currency on PayPal...so  
in time I believe some groups will choose to have a private one where  
no one from the outside can add a sign...but the public ones will  
always be free and open...  Val ;-)
