I’m moreso a filler because I have my own conworld with multiple languages spoken by different peoples.

What do you call a conlanger who has two conlangs, one for decades, and has made precious little progress on any of them?
I’m that kind.

I mean, the loyalist description gets into specifics about progress, but I'd still say that category fits best.

The last time I posted here, I said I was a scrapper, which was accurate, given the categories that had been listed at the time. But given I've been working almost exclusively on Silvish for several years now, it seems I'm more in loyalist territory. And now with me deciding to work on the Silvish dialects (of which there are many), there's even a soupçon of filler.

Looking at the archetypes available now, I might have classed my past conlanging as perfectionist. There maybe wasn't a final vision, but I had a strong sense of each new conlang improving on the previous one.

Is there a category for “perfectionist to the point of catatonia”?
