After changing the layout, the information on the qepHom veb is updated.
The entire page is beign re-organised and updated. The major change regards the internal layout which is changed to CSS to get a better visibility on mobile devices. Lots of old infomration is removed, and all German information about Klingon is moved to the new website www.klingonisch.de.
A new word has been added to the List of new canon words. This word has been found due to the effort of the students of the eleventh qepHom. They had written a very long letter to Marc Okrand, so Maltz suddenly said that "the Klingon word for scroll is Qumran!".
After a long break, there have been a lot of changes and additions:
The group image for the 10th anniversary and the 11th qepHom have been added.
The registration for the qepHom veb has been activated. Until today, 14 attendees have registered.
The list of references of our Klingon teacher has moved to its own page. This list has been updated with recent activities.
A big change has run over the complete website, first in the german part, now also in the english part:
The complete layout has been changed to a somewhat more up to date look and the menu has been improved: All of the available information about the qepHom has been included into one single page: check out "Meeting".
The pages about the pa'logh qepHommey now include a few images, besides of the group image, so that you can see at least a little bit what happened that year.
See an example of qepHom VIII or qepHom IX.
A new category has been introduced simply as "Klingon". This includes some information about the Klingon language and will be expanded step by step.
One completely new category is the answer to a question that we keep hearing over and over again: "Why learn Klingon?". Here you can tell the world why you learn Klingon and you can see why others do it.
The imprint and other important information like contact information can be found in the category "About".
This year's attendees' list is now complete with 18 participants.
Anybody who likes to donate for the qepHom veb is definitely welcome to do so. We like to thank you for this, so you will get the official qepHom-Support-T-Shirt as a present for everyone donating more than 20 Euro. Mit den Spenden können wir das qepHom für alle noch abenteuerlicher gestalten, und auch die Nicht-Teilnehmer können sich mit einem qepHom-T-Shirt schmücken.
It took a long time:
We are proud to present the new and official qepHom-Saarbrücken-Logo!
It is hard to oversee the resemblence to the known logo of starfleet academy, and that's exactly what we wanted. The famous phrase "ex astris scientia" (science from the stars) has been adapted to "ex astris lingua" (language from the stars).
The pointy elements in the three corners remind of a klingon trefoil.
Below, you can read the word "Saarbrücken" for the place of the headquarter, followed by the roman number MMI (2001) for the year of the qep'a' in Brussels which I have organized, representing all the qepHommey that had been helt outside of Saarbrücken.
Next to mention is that this years qepHom registration is back online. This time, the rates for the rooms are listed seperately. For this reason, the small print has changed a little.
Step by step, the Klingon Language Archive is growing, but so far only in German. The first useful addition to see there, is a complete list of all available Klingon literature, in and about Klingon. (see it in german here)
Step by step, the page is growing:
The jeSwI' tetlh has been completed again. Finally, the ne'Derlan Hol 'ay' has been completely translated into dutch, and what's much more important: The Klingon section is now completely in Klingon. (both had been partially in english first)
Now new: Almost all of the website is now available in pIqaD for the really strong Klingonists among you!
Commercial notice: In order to announce the qepHom, a give-away brochure is available. If you know some people who might be interested, or you know a place to put them, we can send you some. (At this time only in German available)
The complete website has been re-arranged, lots of errors and dead links removed, and many missing pages added. Therefore it is recommended to only set a link to www.qephom.de to avoid dead links.
The information for the upcoming Saarbrücken qepHom No. 6 is now also available in english and the list of participants has been updated; we are now expecting eight guests, and we are sure that many more will attend.
Now new: the tiny Klingon-Quiz.
Soon also available in english, a possibility for everyone to test his or her abilities in Klingon, but it's also interesting for those who do not know what Klingon actually is.
Next, two more radio reports are online now, and two articles from the newspaper about the fifth qepHom.
Last but not least, it should mentioned that the sitemap has been set up to date.
In order to stay tuned and also show the development of the site, this "news"-page has been established.
To avoid spam, there is no more @-symbol on this website, nor any direct mailto-link. Therefore, the contact-page has been established.
Infos on the upcoming qepHom V have been published, and pictures of the summer-qepHom are set online.
Information on the summer-qepHom is available.
veSbe's report about qepHom IV is finished and online, just like some other changes and links.
This was probably the first appearance of www.qepHom.de - it doesn't matter for the internet if you capitalize or not, but in Klingon, the H is always capitalized so I always write it like this.
