Please welcome Loretta as a forum moderator!

I'm very happy to welcome Loretta as a forum moderator! As you probably know already, she's always been tremendously helpful around here. She has great knowledge of both European and Japanese cultures, since she's living in London and married to a Japanese guy, and bringing up her little girl to be multicultural! She'll be joining Bronwyn and yours truly as your overlords...I mean, friendly moderators ^_^

Just Bento is 2 years (and a month) old!

October came and went so quickly for me, that I completely forgot that it marked the 2 year anniversary of Just Bento! The site has grown so much in such a short time. And it's thanks to you - yes, you, I'm pointing to you! ^_^ Seriously, the people who post frequently to the forums are the backbone of the site...I dare not mention names, unless I leave out someone inadvertently. But, extra-special thanks go to Bronwyn, who helps moderate out the bad seeds, of which there are thankfully just a few. Thank you so much for helping this site to prosper!

Spammers will be Banned. Please report them!

We have a very simple set of rules to follow here on the forum. Recently, there have been people registering with the sole purpose of spamming the site with stupid links. Such users will be banned immediately, so don't even bother. I hope that we won't have to start screening site registrations, because it is generally a pain in the behind to do so, but if this continues we may have to go that route.
