SignWriting List
June 3, 2011

Hello Charles -
I just went to the Brazilian Sign Language Dictionary in SignPuddle and logged in, and I had no problem getting all the buttons needed...

So I have given you a new password and I will write to you privately with it - then login with the new password and I bet it will work - it just worked for me -

Plus, to edit a sign, you do NOT touch the Create Sign box....that is only for new signs. Instead you click on a button to the right, called "Write Sign" and that opens the old sign so you can edit it... You will have those buttons when you login using your password...

Val ;-)

Stephen, I tried to go in and fix my signs but even in EDIT mode, all I do is go into "Create Sign" mode.  Is there something wrong with the server. I am trying to Fix signs and I don't want to have to create a sign from scratch.

I go to SignPuddle Brazilian sign language, I sign in so I can be an editor for signs. I go to a sign, and I touch "the create sign" box which usually opens the CURRENT sign box so that I can fix it.  Now it simply goes to Create sign, which means, effectively, I have to start over from scratch when I'm trying to adjust a sign.

Please check this feature, as I am doing a massive edit and ordering project and need to be able to edit, not be blocked, even from signs that I have put in myself, from adjusting them to be correct.

I'm going to fix these, as the arrows are not working in any of the posted listings on the LIBRAS sign puddle.

I agree, the simultaneous lines tend to be confusing, but part of it is to ensure that they start at opposite points on the wheel (like a bicycle) and move forward.  I've send this to Fernando Capovilla to check as well, as the dictionary citation seems to show movement forward (as you have written.

I just notice that this is not going to the list for some reason. It looks as though the reply feature is not going to the list like it used to. Hmm...

The alternating time symbols is basically saying that while both hands move on the same path, they start on the opposite ends. So the way that you have it written could work if both arrows were moving in the same directions. It still seems you have both on the same path starting on opposite ends, but going in the opposite directions. You actually don't need to have the timing symbols at all if you have the movement arrows correct. I also think it gets more confusing when you try to make it so that it works with the timing symbols, so I would personally write it this way:

Actually I can not perform either movements because the left hand is moving, from close, up and outward while the right hand is moving, from far, up and inward. So I would see it as either of the two following whether the alternating time symbol or the same time symbol is used.



The timing symbols that you purposed is actually where one hand moves while the other rests, so to speak, which isn't what was done in the video.

 This is the sign for Brincadeira (toy) in Libras (according to the writing on SignPuddle)

 I have added brincadeira with alternating motion to the SignPuddle.  I believe the other two signs need to be corrected. Note the hands move one and then the other, like a bicycle, not a rowboat. The difference is the simultaneous line.
