My name is Debbie and I am the latest member of the Wikispaces team.  I just started Wednesday and I will be working mainly in customer support.  As always if you have any concerns or issues with Wikispaces please contact help@wikispaces.com and we will try to get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to helping everyone.

My previous job was testing computer hardware and software and I’m excited at the chance to work with all of you and not just the technology.

I’m a member of the San Francisco Japanese English Toastmasters (SFJETS), am decent at Japanese (speaking more than reading and writing), enjoy watching TV, surfing on the web, and reading.

That’s me in a nutshell.  Pleased to meet everyone.  ^_^

    Hey Debbie! As a wikispace user myself, I hope you have a lot of fun here. I know for a fact that not only the staff, but most of the users themselves are very nice and courteous. As I’ve said before, have a glorious time here.

    Welcome to Wikispaces Debbie.

    Your introductory greeting caught my eye as I have had the privilege of visiting Japan many years ago. Unfortunately, “Nihongo ga watshi wa hanasi ma sen.” (hope I spelled it correctly).

    OpenID support should be displayed more prominently on wikispaces.com
    It is a major feature and too buried at https://www.wikispaces.com/site/signin

    Been using Wikispaces for a long time and a big fan, keep up the great work!

    Drew Mcphatter (Lady-D) – Thank you, I am enjoying my new job. ^_^ Both the Wikispaces members and staff are glorious people.

    amber – Thank you~

    BillnDaphS – Thank you, there were just a few mistakes in the sentence, but it was completely understandable. ^_^ “Watashi wa nihongo o hanashimasen” sounds a wee bit better

    Namikaze Aisan- Konbanwa (koko wa mo yoru goro), hai genki desu. Ogenki desuka? Nice to meet you Ai-chan, although let’s leave the -sama off of my name ^^; The main pointer I give to people is listen to a lot of music and sing it, singing is a great way to practice pronunciation and listening to music can really help your listening skills.

    Mike Chelen – Thank you for your feedback. We will look into making that a more prominent part of the site going forward.
