Hello members!
Mod here, it's been a really long time since I last posted anything here to you all.
Anyways, just recently we celebrated 1 year of being up and running and we currently also have 295 members, 5 away from 300, really impressive if you ask me!

Well, I thought that this place needed to be updated and improved.
So if you have any suggestions on how we can make this a better community, leave a message here.
Also, please feel free to submit as may journal and profile lay outs as you want. I promise you, they will all be used at one point or another. Depending on how many I get, I might make a monthly rotation.

Another thing, if there is anyone out there willing to help with the translations, since it seems like we are really falling behind on the blogs of some of our members, please send me a PM with your credentials, so to speak. How long you have been speaking both languages, is really want I am looking for and then I will discuss it with the other mods to see they say.

That's all.

Thank you for sticking with us for over 365 days! Please stick around for another 365 more days!

Well, I'm still jumping between the two options: to start translating Giru's blog or not.

Well, MAINLY I could do it. But... I'm still unsure about my skills, and wouldn't probably get some things right. So if I could get some tiny help from someone more experienced in japanese, like one of the current translators, just to send them the translation to be checked out for some major mistakes, or if I run into a unstandable saying or voice or something (Giru keeps writing down all the voices and noices and god damn growls he ever figures out) I could ask someone what the heck he means, then I could take the part and start translating.

But other than that D: can't do.

All of us have translated some of Giru's blog at some point, and I think he's caused some trouble for all of us. His style is a bit different, and he uses so many different sounds...and sometimes talks about things I don't know anything about (well mostly Monster Hunter~_^).
I feel really bad about him being neglected though. He's too cute for that>_<

I don't mean to discourage you at all, I actually think you'd probably be as able as me or suntea22. I'm not a native speaker myself, so I'm often finding new things in their blogs.
I feel like translating takes an ability to look things up and make some educated guesses as much as knowledge of Japanese^_^
But at the least I would be available for any questions and we can try to figure things out.

I hope this came out the way I meant it to...
But in any case, I'd really love to have Giru's blogs being translated again. So think about it and talk to saigocage if you decide you want to do it, and if you have any questions for me you can pm me anytime^_^

Yay for 365 days! It went by pretty fast^_^

I'd love to see more layouts, the ones we've had were really pretty. Well they had Vidoll so that was a given~_^
