Re: Because nobody's perfect ...
Considering that I'm still a Klingon n00b, my first try at anything Klingon was trying to translate an email sent to me in all Klingon.Â I failed.Â Miserably.Â My translation (with help of the Klingon Dictionary) was very off when I finally obtained the English translation of the email.Â My second try was asking for the email.Â In Klingon.Â Again, failing.

Subject: Because nobody's perfect ...
A question thrown out to the board, veterans and newcomers all - but mostly to the veteran Klingonists: a question inspired by the recent dreadful attempts at Klingon in the article published by The Sun newspaper.
No matter how good you all may be today, at some point in the past - whether you came to TKD in recent months, or in 1991/92 when the White Book came out, or even as far back as 1985/86 with the publication of the original Little Blue Book - we were all newcomers to tlhIngan Hol.
What were your first formal stabs at tlhIngan Hol; and if your younger self were to present them to you today how would you feel about these apprentice pieces?
