1. I've cleaned up the tags and fixed the profile, hopefully things are more organized now.

2. Remember that you guys can post too!! Post whatever you want!! How's learning going? What did you learn/read/listen to yesterday? Confused about anything?

Greetings members! I'm a bad mod, but I'm surprised and happy to see that there's a few people on our member list now.

Since I'm a very slow and inactive user, we now have a second mod of the community, [personal profile] lusentoj. We're best friends and roommates IRL and have both been learning Japanese on and off for some time. He's very interested in alternative study methods and memorisation techniques, as well as etymology and decoding grammar, so I'm sure he'll be happy to talk with those of you struggling with remembering kanji, or kunyomi/onyomi readings, etc. (I'm more of a "intake media in the target language and naturally learn all the common stuff" and "I already gave up on kanji 10 years ago" type of person.)

Feel free to contact him as well as me if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the community. PMs are fine, comments are fine. Since I work long days and barely have time to go online right now, please don't think you're being ignored if it takes some time to get an answer.

We're planning on changing the community layout soon, to make it more accessible for users like lusentoj (who is visually impaired). If you have any suggestions or requests about anything to do with the comm, leave a comment.

よろしくお願いします!

This is a community for anything related to learning the Japanese language.

Allowed content: questions, tips, information, practice posts, discussions, and anything else that seems relevant to talk to other learners about (or eventual fluent speakers who want to teach).

Not allowed: stuff that isn't related to learning Japanese in any way (including posts about Japanese media/etc if the topic doesn't somehow relate to learning the language).

General rules:

- Post relevant content in your posts (see above). Comments are more open to variation, but please keep very personal discussions to PMs between users, or your personal journals.

- Be nice, don't be elitist or judgmental, etc.

- No starting fights. Disagree politely and respect others.

- Don't spam the community. Try to post a maximum of once a day (per user). If you came up with something else to post, you can save it until tomorrow. There is no recommended limit to commenting, of course.

- Posts and comments in both English and Japanese are allowed, but if you're going to write in any other language, please include a translation or summary of your writing in either English or Japanese so that more users can have a chance at understanding what you're writing in the community. Even though posting exclusively in Japanese is allowed, it might help beginners if you include a translation or summary as well, although it's not required.

- Tag your posts! It helps keep things tidy and makes it easy for everyone to search through the community for specific posts.

- Contact the mod(s) if you want new tags added, or if you have other problems or questions.
