Langmaker.com was a website run by Jeffrey Henning that acted as a database of conlangs, neographies, and other resources related to conlanging and conworlding.

In March , 28, 2006, Jeffrey Henning transformed his site into an interactive wiki.

Extract from the main page, March , 28, 2006.

"For years now, most of the content of Langmaker.com has been submitted by the readers of the site, with Jeffrey Henning acting as an editor.

It seems only appropriate to make Langmaker.com's content fully interactive now, in the form of a wiki, where each of us as peers act as the editors.

We hope you will create an account here and continue to contribute as you have in the past.

With your help as a contributor to the wiki, the content of Langmaker.com can grow much more quickly and thereby better serve the conlanging community."


Langmaker began as Model Languages, a newsletter published by Henning between 1995 and 1996,[2] in which he attempted to better publicize the hobby of conlanging and to explore various issues and questions related to conlanging. Shortly, Henning moved to a website format. He began not only discussing and commenting on conlangs but also cataloguing them in a comprehensive database, with overviews of the languages and links to their respective websites. Henning ultimately began adding neologisms; babel texts; neographies; books on languages, linguistics, and conlanging; and other general resources to his database. Langmaker has been viewed by many as an information and activity hub in the online conlanging world.

Henning has since left the maintenance of the site primarily to its casual contributors and administrators, who continued to contribute up until Avril 9, 2006 when the site become inaccessible. In January 4, 2008, the site was locked.

As of November 11, 2015, the domain name has been bought .

The actuel owner of the site is Fethi Güler and its language is turkish.
