Personally I dislike Discord due to its proprietary and data privacy
disrespecting nature, and I think Free Software projects should not use
it. However, that's up to the people actually involved with the

ISO language code (iso639-3): tok
Name (english and toki pona): toki pona
Microsoft locale ID: Unknown due to the site being down at the moment.

There is none. See

But that doesn't matter for LibreOffice, we'd define a mapping in the
user-defined range.

Script: latin letters or "sitelen pona"

So here comes the question: will your localization use the Latin script?

I hope so, for one because "sitelen pona" is not a script with an
official ISO 15924 script code and we'd have to make up a private script
tag for the language tag, whereas 'tok'-only could be taken as
defaulting to Latin script, or explicitly stating 'tok-Latn'.


"sitelen pona" is a writing system using pictograms.
It has some fonts.
Here is a font I found:
Here are more fonts:

these fonts use either dynamically composed compound glyphs, which
likely could make it necessary to implement supporting code for it, or
have glyphs in the Unicode Supplementary Private Use Area-A
U+F1900..U+F1AFF and as the name "Private Use" indicates, it could be
something different on another system, so interoperability isn't
necessarily given, though it is said to be proposed for inclusion on the
Under-ConScript Unicode Registry (note Under-... that is not even
ConScript) but anyway is nothing officially binding.
