Thanks for getting in touch and no, there is absolutely no rejection - on
the contrary! We hadn't received your volunteering note for some reason,
but are really happy to hear from you. Thank you for joining! We'll be in
touch later today with specific instructions for Japan (to you and Hiroichi,
who also volunteered).

>> Hi everyone,

>> However, there are still several countries that are either not fully
>> covered or where the data needs updating, so we're urging more of you to
>> join! Either by becoming a Census Country Editor (a low-commitment role to
>> act as point of reference in your country) - get in touch with me if you're

>> There are two actions you can help with:
>> - Contribute to countries where there is missing information - you can do
>> this right now, just visit http://census.okfn.org/country
>> - Review existing contributions - you will need access to the review
>> *(just let me know and I can add you)*
>> It would be great if you could help bring the census up to date. This is

>> community to help lift this thing. The Census is an entirely crowdsourced
>> thing, let's show the world how we do things!
>> Get in touch if you're interested to lend a hand.
