For example, if I had been creating Blarth, a conlang, and I had a question--could I ask that question here, or is it limited to conlangs that have been around for a while?

From the Tour:

Constructed Languages Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for designers and users of artificial or invented languages

(emphasis mine).

So, yes, questions about problems you are experiencing creating your own conlang are definitely on topic.

However, if you want a good answer you'll have to provide enough context so that people unfamiliar with your language (just about everyone!) will be able to answer from the information you've provided.

    Okay. But I do think that we should have a rule that enough context must be provided so that the question can be satisfactorily answered by people who have never seen the language before.

    @CHEESE you're probably right there. Though the usual mechanisms of down-votes and votes to close ("unclear what you asking"?) should suffice in most cases.
