Please join me in welcoming our new community Mod/Maintainers who will be joining me (inala) in tending and managing news_jpop - massu74, 9kinds and ki_el.
Many thanks to everyone who responded to the call to help keep this community going. It’s very clear that this is a special place for many NEWS fans and it is an important duty to keep it active for current and future fans.
The new mod team has many ideas for ways to develop and improve the community so please stay tuned for updates.
The most recent change has been to add a community calendar which holds major NEWS related anniversaries as well as tracking upcoming activities for the group and the members. You’ll always find at the top of the links in the sidebar or access it directly here.
If you need to contact the mod team we also have a new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
So without further delay - a few words of introduction from our new mods!
This community was pretty much my main source of information when I first got into the fandom and barely knew any Japanese. Without the community, I would never have gotten to know so much about the members, so this is really just my turn at giving back. I've never done anything like this before, which means there may be some hiccups along the way, but hopefully we can make this community one that all fans - new and old - can find information easily and share their love for NEWS again.
Hello! My name is Cara and I’ve been a NEWS fan since seeing them at Countdown in 2014/2015. I’m excited to help with moderating the news-jpop community and keeping everything on-topic and up-to-date.
Hi everyone. My name is Ki, I'm from Germany and I've been a NEWS fan (obsessed with KoyaShige) for almost a decade now. This lj community has always been one of my primary sources of information and I'm very happy to be given the opportunity to keep it active and alive. I'll be doing my best! ^_^
