Hey all! I am Caner from Turkey. Beginner in Japanese (learned Hiragana, studying Katagana atm). Found this site recently and I liked it! Very useful materials.. Thanks for the efforts.

Just saw the header of Forum Section : Board index ‹ TJP e Youkoso! (Welcome to TJP!)

so should it be TJPえようこそ instead of TJPへようこそ? or both are ok?

TJPへようこそ

e is just sometimes used as the romanized version.

This is similar to こんにちは even though the romanization of はis technically ha, resulting in kon'nichiha, it's often written as kon'nichiwa for phonetic purposes.

From WWWJDIC;

へ (prt) (pronounced え in modern Japanese) indicates direction or goal (e.g. "to");
