N.B. The article in this issue entitled 'Queen of Conscripts' (pp. 20-21) displays images of various constructed writing systems purporting to be the creations of the artist known to the online constructed languages community as 'Serali'. Developments since this issue’s release have thrown the authenticity of this attribution of the scripts into doubt – namely the 'Tirin' script (images now removed) having been discovered to in fact be the work of Jeff Anderson ('Akumu'), and properly known as 'Tiri'n'. Several more of 'Serali's' writing systems (not featured in the Journal itself, but formerly found on the website referenced in the article, namely www.xanga.com/blue_frog88) had similar charges of plagiarism levelled against them; Serali has since renounced any claims of ownership of these scripts. The other scripts featured directly in the article have not, to the Editor’s knowledge, been revealed as definitely plagiarised, but if anyone has evidence to the contrary they are encouraged to contact the Journal at curlyjimsam@aol.com.

The staff at Conlanger.com are treating this incident with the utmost of severity, and would like to confirm to the general public that we in no way encourage or tolerate plagiarism. The Journal would like to apologise to Jeff Anderson in particular, and to the respective creators of the other scripts should at any point in the future these be revealed not to have been Serali’s own work.
