Is this intended as a collaborative project?

MagiMaster, the fact that this language description is grossly incomplete, unattributed, lacks references, and includes the {{stub}} tag (which brings the text "Please help us by adding some more information" onto the page) suggests (to me at least) that it is your original work and you are looking for contributions to its design, from other users of the wiki. Is this the case? If so, please indicate so in the article and add it to the Works in progress list. If not, be aware that this wiki is not really meant as a drawing board for solo projects (see the text at the top of the Works in progress list) and don't be surprised if this article gets garbage collected. --Chris Pressey 04:04, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

I don't mean for it to be a solo project. It's an interesting concept, but I don't have enough ideas to finish it myself. In particular, I can't figure out how I'd handle flow control. Something involving how a particular permutation permutes 0 probably, but that's not quite enough to write out an example. MagiMaster 05:41, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
If you have a language idea and want help, I suggest you bring it up on the IRC channel. God knows we need something to talk about that actually involves esolangs. Phantom Hoover 21:29, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
You might look at the language Eril, which was designed specifically for solving a particular kind of permutation group. Flow control is constraint-based, and it can search for permutations by regular-expression. It looks like the website is gone, but the doc is archived on wayback: Xifeng (talk) 20:17, 5 May 2013 (BST)
