Can I join with Spanish and Italian please? I'm not sure what new technique I will be trying out but I'm sure I'll find something.

I like the idea of one piece of writing per week. It's what I already try to do but recently I've not had much to write about, so suggested topics could help get me going.

Welcome :)
The challenges are not a requirement, you just need to have a log :) are you a member of the original htlal forum? (that's not a requirement either)

Thank you! I was a member of the original HTLAL (with the same username as here I think) but I never used it and then when I tried, my account wasn't activated because I changed my email or something. I keep a log on Tumblr but if I need to have one here too, I'll create one :)

I've now added Spoonary and arthaey to the team, sorry for the delay :)

Has everyone seen the announcement? What are your thoughts?
As the captain I ask you to read the logs on both sites. I can crosspost the new posts weekly or whenever there are many new posts :) We shouldn't let our team fall apart! :P 8-)

Personal notes:
-yay progress bars! they're very welcome in the team thread :)
-how much does it bother you that I've not yet compiled a list of the team logs on this new forum? I admit I would prefer to do that when Tadoku is over, ie after September 1st
-is anyone strongly against moving all the team activity here? (this concerns only our team and only the remainder of 2015 for now)
-have you seen Kerrie, suzukaze, jesm86, dandt here? even if they haven't posted anything, has any of them registered?

I have been a terrible TAC participant this year, but for what it's worth, I'm currently using both forums so I check this forum and update my log here more often.

For now at least Anya and Ccaesar seem to prefer the old forum so be sure to check their logs.

@RyanSmallwood great to see you! :D
