2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami


Non-members are now allowed to post, so if you have some information but don't want to join the club, please do share it with everyone!


I've been thinking that having a single place on MAL to gather as many information as possible about this topic would be more handy, which is why I created this club.
All of our thoughts and prayers are with Japan in these moments of sorrow.

The purpouse of this club is to gather information in a single place. Please help by providing any additional info you may have.

Unfortunately I must go to work during week days, so possible updates in the club may be slowed down.

Thanks, but I think those are all included in the spreadsheets I already linked.

Everything updated. Sorry for the time it took.

Loxaris | Mar 22, 2011 5:43 PM
Thanks a lot Tsubasa! Your links will be up very soon.

tsubasalover | Mar 22, 2011 3:53 AM
I accidentally found this.

tsubasalover | Mar 21, 2011 8:49 AM
this, too.

Loxaris | Mar 20, 2011 11:53 AM
Almost all the sections revised. Planning to add some more - earthquake and nuclear situation specific.

Put almost all the Facebook links I have in the 'extra' section because since I'm not on Facebook I don't really understand how it works, so I can't tell the usefulness/carefulness of them.
Some feedback on this would be appreciated.

Loxaris | Mar 20, 2011 3:57 AM
@jaysorbet: thank you for your encouragement. Actually, I currently spend most of my time seeking and reading information, so I don't update the club as frequently as I feel I should.

I don't care about people joining, really. Should be obvious from the fact that I allowed non-member posts. I just want people to have easy access to at least a part of the available information in case they're looking for it from MAL.
