Awww, I hope you feel better! *sends you cuddly puppies*

I've even joined the community and I'm still afraid of it. :P For the first time ever I'm considering taking some communities off my friends list (the hyde one, and gacktxhyde). I don't want to leave either of them, I just don't want to see some of the stuff all the time *stares in horror at her friends page which is nothing but 20 "Hi I'm new and I love Hyde"'s*

All those intro posts sound like something you'd hear at an AA meeting or something ^^;;

"Hello. My name is *insert name here*. And I'm a Hyde-oholic." ^^;;

I actually think that particular icon post is pretty cute. ^-^

But the into posts are drowning everything else! I've set up a filter so I can rummage through the rest of my flist without into posts and such.

yes the icon is cute.. I must say that the wording The Official community for Hyde irks me - It's NOT OFFICIAL~!

I'm all for spreading the Hyde luv.. but there was something really enjoyable about the fact that compared to dears lj comm, hyde fans on lj were a much smaller bunch.

I didn't notice the thing about it being "official." I'd like to say that no one would think something on lj is "official" simply because it says so, but there are a lot of young naive fans out there...It's like when you hear someone who says they got their information on Gackt/Hyde/whoever from fanfic. That makes me sad! Sadder than seeing people not liking them for their music.

I still consider myself a bit of a newbie -- I've only been a fan since mid July -- So it's always seemed like the number of Hyde fans is equal - or greater - than the number of Gackt fans. This could also be because I'm more a Hyde fan and search out Hyde related stuff more often than Gackt stuff.

When I hear official, for me, I think hydeist. But eh, that might just be me.^^;

I know what you mean about that, Helayne. Like how I remember when gacktxhyde had only 25 members and how we all got along and even I posted a lot more with pictures and downloads and all that. But eh, I dunno. It's nice to have more people involved in the fandom, but at the same time, having a small group is nice too. :\

That's because official means official... The community and all content posted there would have to be approved by hyde and all management surrounding hyde, which it obviously isn't. Bah.

The size of the community doesn't bother me, it's simply the fact that a large proportion of the comm are just there to go *squee, hyde is so hot*. Perhaps I'm not being fair - maybe this community will prove itself to be productive and people's posts will be interesting to read... hmm.

Well.. yeah. But as someone stated above, some just getting into the fandom may not know about hydeist. I know I didn't when I first got into HYDE, or Dears with Gackt. But really, common sense there, yeah.^^;

With size, I'm mostly talking about my place, gacktxhyde. It really has a lot of members and it gets hard to watch all the posts and all the comments to ensure someone doesn't offend someone else or what have you. And then some people don't like all the fics and some want more, some don't like intro posts, some don't like all the "squee squee hyde is teh hottnezz! *licks him*" and the list goes on. ._. That's why I think small comms are sometimes [ at least from a mod perspective ] easier as you can monitor it a lot better. Communities are a lot of work. :\

But I agree with what you say about the large proportion to drool over hyde and nothing more or what have you, and yeah, maybe the community will surprise many.

*feels glad she doesn't have a comm to mod*
...though, it is kinda expected for such things to grow over time since they're free for anyone to join...

Indeed, I think every mod would like their community to grow and have lots of members/fans involved, as that's the point for making one, to bring together other fans. You just have to lay down rules and try to make it fair for everyone yet make it an enjoyable place as well. Can't exactly have some person running around annoying others and ignoring it when others complain, you know? ._. So, it can be a little tough, especially when it's 50-50 with most things that come up [ like fics, intro posts, graphics etc ].

It's hard trying to please everyone, at times. :\

I remember when gacktxhyde had only 25 members

That sounds so cozy. To bad it was way before my time. :/

Personally I think the ideal community would be fairly active and have interesting/funny/informative posts. It seems like it would be easier to form that type of atmosphere in a smaller community. Smaller comms do seem like they would be easier to control and keep fangrrling in check. BTW, I think you guys do a great job of keeping 600+ people in line.

I just noticed that gacktxhyde and larcenciel are the biggest communities I'm in. A lot of the other communities I'm in aren't very active but I feel when someone posts I'm getting quality. (I enjoy the silly posts at hydexmicrophone.) roselinedcoffin is a wonderful community, especially when I joined, I haven't really been keeping up with it so I don't know how good it still is...Anyway, they have a wonderful idea for introductory posts: a survey that asks more than simple "fav character, fav song, fav this, fav that" type questions. The questions on their survey can lead to good discussions. Maybe I should suggest that idea to the new hyde comm. I normally don't join communities for one person from a band, but my Hyde wuv has grown since I first got into L'arc~en~ciel. Who knows, maybe in a few days once things have calmed down the community will show some promise...

At first I thought you were talking about something on hydeist, so I was a little confused. But, yes. I know what you mean. Quite frankly, I have all the HYDE I need, and what I don't have I get from either you or Vinny, so I'm content. ^___^

It is horrifying. Like I said to Laura last night, it really makes me want to make a LJ Jmusic community that you have to write an essay in order to be accepted as a member for. >.< Intellegent discussion, people, not "it's the best cause he's hot"

P.S. got your package today. I have to say it was the cutest wrapping I ever saw.

LOL -!! I don't have a problem with people going spazzy & squealy - someone probably thinks my lj is overspazzy.. but I suppose the complaint is that the squealing isn't just segregated to hydeist comm.. but it seems to end up inhabiting all the related comms.

...there we go, having a separate hydeist comm is a good thing...then the squeeling can go on there rather than in larcenciel or someplace :D
