dears remains up as a repository of past fanworks and for sales posts or non-commercial requests and anything else Gackt-related.

If you're new or a returning fan, ohgacktyoudidnt for fandom activity and news.

If you submit a post and it doesn't appear within 24 hours, please contact me here. In the last year I've started to only get e-mail notifications for submissions and PMs once in a blue moon or days late. There might be a rare occasion when I am sick or on vacation for a couple days but I try to approve all posts ASAP.

I wish this was still the main hub for activity and such; it just seams more right, the name being 'dears' and all. It was our own version of the real thing. It just seams more fitting, than a community with such a lame name (this new hub) being the focal point for fans to congregate.

Though, I suppose a name doesn't mean much to some in the grand scheme of things (though I quite a bit disagree with such a sentiment).

Thanks for keeping it up and not deleting it - there's so much that would be great to be able to reference. (as I remember it, there was some pretty interesting conversations that happened). Although, since tagging didn't really take off well, and came pretty late in the game, finding some stuff will be a bit of a chore i'm sure. Ha, hidden gems i'm sure can be found in such instances.

If tagging had been implemented earlier, it would have been great. Eventually I got overwhelmed when I went to clean up all the generic, unhelpful tags people had added when the community was still in full swing and every time I got someone to help they would flake out or try to implement a rehaul when the first attempt wasn't finished.

At this point, because Dears only exists for nostalgia, I'm not sure it's worth going back through nine years of posts of a comm that used to get 3-7 submissions a day.

Unless 50 people crawl out of the woodwork to say their lives would be immensely improved by Dears tags I guess.

I agree with you on the Dears name and making this an active comm again instead..

It would be nice but the majority has spoken.

Just wondering: so Sales posts only go to dears or are they also allowed at that new community. I went to the rules there and found no mention of it.

I'm glad to find that Gackt fandom didn't die out, just moved somewhere else. I was quite surprised by the lack of everything on here.

I'm not affiliated with OGYD so I have no idea, sorry.

That post covers it, and they have a mass ticket post every tour, but regular sales posts aren't allowed. You can sell things in the weekly CAGS (Come and Get Some). Usually it's sometime on Sunday (the time zone is different every week (between US, Europe, and Japan), but sometimes it's on Gackt time (meaning it's late).

Lots of people do follow both communities, though.

(Mmmmmm... Ten....)
