Hi everyone,

To start with, I'd like to tell you how many members has joined since Jan 9th.
-Four of twelve CS ambassadors whom I had invited have joined
-Five of sixteen group moderators whom I had invited have joined.
-Three of five CS volunteers whom I had invited have joined.
I'm still waiting for. Yes, it is a small number. But you are surely one of the active CSers in Japan. If you know someone else whom you want to join, please tell me to invite them.

To get back to the main-track. Honestly, I'm not sure what I can do for CS Japan. Personally I think a place is needed where active members in Japan can talk together at times. That's why I tried revitalizing. Although I don't think this group should be active all the year around, I try to keep an eye on the group all the year around. Because many are expats, it seems CS Japan community is a bit different from other. We can discuss various topics specific to Japan. If someone post a message, I'll do the better I can. I always try to say neither should nor must but suggest or recommend.

My most interest was to put a subgroup mess away from the Japan group. As I posted a different thread, I think it had better looking now. It was faster than I had expected.

Different people think different things. Everyone is equal. To make CS Japan better, could you tell me what you expect in this group?

Thank you.

Hi Philip and all,

I'm glad to hear from you. Definitely I want to say "Thank you!" to the pioneers creating this group.

Thorough my effort to do with subgroups, I surely feel what I can do is to ask, ask, ask. I'm not a policeman but just a crew to make things better. I think invited members here are one of the crews, too. We are in the same boat. I don't mean our boat is about to sink^^. But once a problem happen to us, we need to corporate together. Kyoto case was a good example. I alerted the safety in Japanese.

On another occasion, I'd like to talk about the New Member Welcome team and the Translation team in Japan. I used to be a member of the Translation, and met a moderator of NWM in person.
