I'm here, I must've missed some messages apparently...  I don't remember writing that, must've been a long time ago.  Based on my catch up reading, and pictures of the sign, I think I was aiming for a highly emphasized version of MANY.  It would be one movement, strong hold at the beginning, then 'exploding' out to the open 5's...

One < mean fast, so two means really fast. 

CW is Cherie Wren. My understanding is that she's around but also very busy with life. (Aren't we all to some degree? GRIN)

The < indicate the hand opening suddenly, I thought twice. Perhaps i was misinterpreting CW's intention as whoever CW is does not seem to pipe up and say. I think I've got something wrong here.

I cannot get into SignPuddle Brazil at all today. It says that signbank.org is down.

Hi Charles,
yes I agree – the hands look good now. On the other hand I am very surprised to read that you want the reader to understand that your intention is a “double movement”.
I saw this spelling never bevore to indicate a double movement. I would rather prefer to movement-arrows for each hand. I was wondering and thought that you focus on rocket-speed writing two dynamic symbols ..;-)
All best

Betreff: Re: Many

I think this is correct now. The double < on both hands indicates a double movement. Is there any way to delete the other sign in error. I thought I was an editor on SignPuddle for ASL. One cannot produce CW's original entry without error.
