For the "Other" part, feel free to rant whatever you want of yourself.
Here is a link to the old introduction post made by luma_chan . The reason we made a new one is because we can't edit her old one and if we ever get new moderators in the future it would be handy if one of us can edit this first post. Also, as a suggestion from Luma herself, we added a last question that gives this post a friending meme-ish feel. You can add any social media you'd like to add fandom friends to your list now so people can add you on Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr etc.
We have also added the intros of each MOD here so that you know a little bit of us too X3

How long have you been a fan: Erm, I think I first heard JE music around 2001 (V6 & Arashi...), but it took a couple years after that until I really got into JE, so I'm guessing 2004? I fell hard into junior fandom right away! Ya-Ya-yah was my first real love (saw one of the first Ya-Ya-yah show episodes and fell in love right away.)
Favorite JE group(s): Mis Snow Man, Kis-My-Ft2, A.B.C-Z & Hey!Say!JUMP. (J.J.Express and Ya-Ya-yah were my favorites before HSJ debut.) I pretty much listen to most the older grous too though (NEWS, TakkiTsuba and Kajani8 are the best, followed by V6, Arashi, KAT-TUN, KinKi, TOKIO, SMAP etc...) I don't have the time to follow all Johnny's groups anymore, so my attention is mainly with juniors, and then JUMP. From the older guys I love TakiTsuba the most. Especially Tackey, since he loves his juniors <3
Favorite JE boy(s): Hasshi, Daiki, Taipi, Takaki, Hiro, Nika, Yamada, Sanada, Fukka, NabeSho, Iwamoto... This could go on for a LONG time! 8D;
Favorite JE song(s): There are way too many songs I like but from JUMP songs DREAMER is very close to my heart for many reasons <3 I think right now TakkiTsuba's Ai wa Takaramono is my most favorite song though.
Favorite JE drama(s): Way too many to choose just one or few X3 Tantei Gakuen Q, Gokusen series, Atashinchi no Danshi, Bloody Monday, Scrap Teacher, Engine, Koishite Akuma, Mei-chan no Shitsuji, Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge and so on... I'm a total sucker for Rider series, Kamen Rider Den-O and Kamen Rider W are some of THE BEST things I've ever watched! XD I also love Kinpachi sensei series! (I have a list of all the dramas I've watched here if you need any ideas for new dramas to watch.)
I'm the oldest one of the mods here... XD; *depressed* Anyway...
I was voted as the "most likely to go poor buying JE goods" some years back at the JE fandom awards (as well as "biggest junior fan") and I guess that fits me since I own way too much Johnny's goods 8D; I stopped counting a long time ago, but thousands of photos, hundreds and hundreds of magazines and CDs and DVDs, pamhlets and posters and all the random concert goods you can imagine XD; (My problem is that I don't only have one favorite guy, so I can't concentrate on just one person!!) Lately I've been spending less though, so hopefully I can stick with that. Since I've been in the fandom for a long time, I've seen most junior/JUMP related shows there have been after the change of the millenium so I might be able to help to recognize shows people are looking for :3 (Although since my memory sucks don't expect too much from me 8D;) And since I'm just a goods collector, I might be able to recognize what goods are from which concert and so on...
I go to Japan every summer, and of course go to concerts. So far I've been to JUMP concerts every year I've been in Japan, so those who are interested, I have some concert reports in my journal (I have a tag for con reports so they should be easy to find). I also regularly do pic spams in my journal, although lately they're mostly juniors' centric.
I also do translations (feel free to check the translations tag from my journal), although majority of my translations are of the Johnny's Junior group Mis Snow Man who are my favorites. But I have some JUMP related things there too, although I think only from their junior days.
Other than hey_say , I'm also the MOD at yayayah , kis_my_ft2 , jjexpress , cherish_dream , takahasshi , top_3 , mis_snow_man and angel_hasshi (some of the junior communities are no longer active though). I used to have a scanning community where I took requests but since I no longer have the time to scan I've deleted it. I sometimes scan some stuff for the junior communities though. I also have a separate fic journal at luma_fics (my fics are mostly juniors and JUMP).
I hate confrontations and can't be mean to people so I guess I'm known as the "nice mod" XD; I'm not a pushover though, I take my mod responsibilities very seriously, so I do make sure all the rules are followed and if not, I take the actions needed. If there's anything someone would want to ask about the community related matters or anything else, feel free to ask me and I'll gladly help if I just can.
For more about me just check my personal journal and my profile~
Name/Nick: Rachél, Rach, Archie, Pi, Hikari
Country: The Netherlands.
Occupation: Student and part-timer.
Born: June 3th, 1991
How long have you been a fan: One fine day in 2005 I was looking around for AMV's when I came across one with Arashi's Sakura Sake as the background song. I got hooked to the group and during my quest to find out more about them, I stumbled upon Johnny's, the entertainment agency they were listed under. From there I started listening to NEWS and (the at that time popular Junior group) KAT-TUN. Seeing both NEWS and KAT-TUN often visited Ya-Ya-yah it was only natural for me to watch the show. Watching Ya-Ya-yah I fell in love with the cheeky boy with the eye-smile and while I flailed around about how cute and adorable he was... I found out he was a year and a half older than me /sigh. That same boy is sort of the reason I'm still in fandom. Damn you Yabu! XD
Favorite JE group(s): Arashi, Hey!Say!JUMP, NEWS, Kanjani8, KAT-TUN, pretty much all Juniors.
Favorite JE boys(s): Yabu Kouta, unrivaled.
Favorite JE song(s): Kagayaki no Hibi by Yabu Kota, Beat Line by Hey!Say!JUMP, Niji by Ninomiya Kazunari, Sakura Sake by Arashi, My Last Train by Kanjani8 and PRECIOUS ONE by KAT-TUN, Eternal by Akanishi Jin, Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana by SMAP
Favorite JE drama(s): Ninkyo Helper (why am I so biased?), Hana Kimi, Hana Yori Dango, Nobuta wo Produce... And probably a lot more.
Other: I guess it's safe to say I'm pretty biased by Yabu, but other than that I love JUMP as a whole of course.
I guess if people already know me than it's because of my (Yabu biased :|) translations over at rainbowtales. I am also a moderator at yabuaday. I occasionally write fanfics too, these can be found in the same community as my translations.
Other than being quite into the JE fandom (this including almost all groups they ever produced) I'm also a big fan of Avex Trax artists such as AAA, Honey L Days and Suzuki Ami, J-Rock bands (Dir en grey, Miyavi, Gackt, Alice9, SuG, An Cafe) and general K-Pop (SHINee, TVXQ, Dalmation,U-Kiss).
I suppose I'm kind of flaily and incoherent but if you ever feel the need to get to know something about JUMP, feel free to ask me because I love searching for random information and I tend to remember 90% of all the things I ever read.
Name/Nick: Emina. If it's too long, Emii is enough XD
Occupation: A college student and a fangirl
Born: April 27, 1992
How long have you been a fan: Hmmm... 5, 4 years I think?
Favorite JE group(s): Hey! Say! JUMP, Arashi, News and KAT TUN
Favorite JE boys(s): Nakajima Yuto ♥ Chinen Yuri, Yaotome Hikaru, Matsumoto Jun, Koyama Keiichirou, Nakamaru Yuiichi, Kimura Takuya
Favorite JE song(s): Dash!!, Arigatou~, Ultra Music Power, Deep Night, Time [HSJ] Love So Sweet, Monster, Rainbow Love, Sakura Sake [Arashi] Sakura Girl, Summer Time, Winter Moon, Fighting Man, Weeek [News] D-Motion, Change Ur World, Yorokobi No Uta, Heart Beat [ KAT TUN] and etc...
Favorite JE drama(s): Gokusen ♥ Nobuta Wa Produce, Engine, Hana Yori Dango, Scrap Teacher
Other: I'm simply and ordinary girl who have huge love for JE guys (esp Yuto... yes, I'm biased fangirl XD)
Erm, I'm now a regular poster at yutoaday community. So, if you have time, please go there? ♥
Besides JE, I'm also a big fan of Utada Hikaru. Yes, she is the main reason why I'm into Jpop and stumbled into this JE fandom (thanks Hikki!) and also, I'm an anime fan (long live anime!).
I guess, that's all? Heee~ Have a nice day everyone ^^
Name/Nick: Saki, just that, because RL does not need to know I exist online
Occupation: Full time student, part-time fangirl
Born: March 4th, 1994
How long have you been a fan: Compared to the rest, really not long. Since 2008 I guess. I detested JE before that xD And then Gokusen and Hanadan happened and all I can remember of that period of my life now is "JUN--AKAME--KAT-TUN--JIN!" And somehow after a year of being a KAT-TUN fan I jumped to NEWS for a bit, because Jin was whoring himself away. From NEWS I found out about K.K.Kitty and naturally Ya-Ya-yah and then I saw this little kid who squeaked on his first television appearance and my heart melted through the floor. So till now, 2 years as a money feeder to Kitagawa's ever growing pocket, and 1 year as a JUMP fan.
Favorite JE group(s): HSJ, followed closely by KAT-TUN, then NEWS, then Arashi, but I listen to the sempais too.
Favorite JE boys(s): I bias Yaotome like there's no tomorrow, and worship Akanishi. Yabu, Inoo, Takaki, BEST, I love NEWS all about the same, as well as KAT-TUN, and once a Jun-bait always a Jun-bait.
Favorite JE song(s): Time / HSJ, Shinku / HSJ, care / Akanishi Jin, Eternal / Akanishi Jin, Sadistic Love / KAT-TUN, WATER DANCE / KAT-TUN, RUSH OF LIGHT / KAT-TUN, Will Be All Right / KAT-TUN, Naiyou no Nai Tegami / NEWS, Forever / NEWS, Sakura Sake / Arashi, Andalucia ni Akogarete / Matchy
Favorite JE drama(s): Gokusen, all of them. Hanadan too, despite the cheese (Aw come ON, JUN'S IN IT). Orthros no Inu simply because Masaru kicks arses.
Other: I flit between hating and loving fandom a lot, because I have this really bad habit of blaming fandom whenever I get stressed about school and everything--so bear with me on that. >: I'm trying to get over that. This year at school is really scary so I guess I need some place to let it out.
I am an active fanfiction writer. I'm keeping up with translations to improve my Japanese ^_^ You can check them out here at papercranes_shi Constructive criticism very much welcomed.
I am insanely flaily and unable to resist spending money when it comes to either Hikaru or Jin.
That is all. \m/
Occupation: Desperate, unemployed student
Born: April 12
How long have you been a fan: I've been a fan since early 2008, so roughly 3 years now? It all started when my friend introduced me to Arashi - she had gotten into J-Dramas at the time and then constantly told me about them. She then came across Hana Yori Dango and fell in love with Jun. Of course, she shared her fangirl stories with me until I started to become curious myself and searched up on Arashi on my own free time and one thing led to another. Soon enough I began to find out about other JE groups but one stuck out to me and it was, yes you guessed it, Hey!Say! JUMP. Now I would be lying to you if I said they rubbed me the right way, because I really didn't care for them at all. That is, until I watched their Dreams Come True PV Making. Keito had barely appeared throughout (a very butthurt fan, can you blame me?) and so I got curious about the rest of them. I was originally a Yuto/Chinen stan, but like I said, Keito had caught my eye. I was also very interested in the fact that he had once lived in England - but for some reason, I just found him to be so endearing. Who would've thought that he would still be my number one bias three years later?
Favorite JE group(s): Arashi & Hey!Say! JUMP To be honest, my list has dwindled down to these two as I've begun to slowly pull out of J-Fandom, but I can never let these guys go.
Favorite JE boys(s): Keito Okamoto & Ninomiya Kazunari
Favorite JE song(s): Your Seed, LIFE, DAITE SENORITA (I have my reasons), Believe.
Favorite JE drama(s): I'm not big on dramas, but I've liked all of the ones I HAVE watched - Hana Yori Dango, Hana Kimi, Bloody Monday, Koizora (The movie), Nobuta wo Produce...and there was Nino's drama, I can't seem to remember the title though.
Other: I'm a major Harry Potter fan and yes, it is my ultimate fandom. I do like KPop as well and I stan my fair share of people. I don't bite, I like to think that I'm pretty nice, and I abuse twitter like there's no tomorrow. I make graphics and post them all over at caramelesque , but I've been on a bit of a hiatus because I'm so busy with school and what not.
Born: May 18, 1996
How long have you been a fan: I've listened to other groups specifically Arashi & NEWS in 2007 and got into HSJ fandom a few months later. -^^-

Favorite JE drama(s): Tantei Gakuen Q, Hana Yori Dango, Hana Kimi, Sensei wa Erai!! & Juken no Kamisama.
Other: I have a community called jump_no1 so you guys probably already know me for my Ryutaro-biased translations. He is my favorite, after all. XD But I do other members' articles too sometimes (Keito, Yamada, etc) so just browse through the tags. X3
Yeah, that's probably just it. If you want to ask anything, just send me a PM or comment in my journal and I'll try my best to help. =^^=
