When we opened arigatou_g this second time, it was in response to the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan and was to support the Japanese people (and GACKT).

I think we managed on both counts!

arigatou_g may now be closed, but there are still plenty of things we can do to help the people of Japan.

The community ogyd_syh has been created for this purpose.

You do not need to be a member of ohgacktyoudidnt to join.
You do not even need to be a GACKT fan.

You just need to have a desire to help, whether it be in a big way or small way. Even something as simple as a few words of support can make a difference.

If you want to continue supporting Japan and SHOW YOUR HEART, please join ogyd_syh

(Firstly, sorry for the delay in informing everybody of this... It's been a busy time!)

The submissions for Irreplaceable Flower finished on March 27th.

Myself and anei_no_tsuki took a couple of days to get the messages uploaded onto the site and to also make sure that it was as perfect as can be.

We both emailed the website link though to GACKT on March 30th (well, March 31st Japan time because it was about 2AM)

Within twenty minutes, GACKT emailed us both back individually to say thank you and to confirm that he had checked the site and read the messages!!

Mission accomplished again, Dears!!

Please remember - GACKT has now also stolen our idea suggested that people can send messages to Japan by uploading a video to YouTube or sending a photo to photo@showyourheart.net. Further information is available here

We've showed our hearts once already and GACKT was thankful. Let's do it again, this time for SHOW YOUR HEART.

Due to the server that houses the Irreplaceable Flower website being down for maintenance for around three hours today, we're going to extend the deadline for submissions.

THE NEW DEADLINE IS SUNDAY, MARCH 27TH @ 9PM (EST, 10AM MARCH 28TH JST)

Please send submissions via http://www.irreplaceableflower.com/showyourheart.html when the site is back available OR, while the site is down, they can be sent directly to the email address messages@irreplaceableflower.com

♥ If emailed, please remember to include your name, location and message as a minimum.
♥ Optional information is your email and website (and whether you want them published on the site) and a photo related to SHOW YOUR HEART.

Normal service will be resumed when the IT department has finished their work.



I hope everyone has/is having a great Saturday!

THE DEADLINE FOR GETTING YOUR MESSAGES IN IS APPROACHING QUICKLY!

MESSAGES NEED TO BE IN BY TOMORROW, MARCH 26TH
(due to time zones, we'll give a little room on that).

I'm sure everyone has seen the announcement on gackt.com about SHOW YOUR HEART and GACKT's desire to raise funds internationally. From what I've seen in various journals and twitter posts, there's a lot of confusion about how international fans can help and whether it's something people can actually do.

GACKT is calling for international help. This is a way that we can help and show our support now without having to wait for further instructions and then worrying about whether it is practical or not.

♥So please, send in your message.
♥Promote the site (this isn't just for GACKT - this is for Japan. It doesn't have to be GACKT related places)
♥The site address to promote is http://www.irreplaceableflower.com/showyourheart.html
♥Please view the wonderful video produced by sleepydragon_26 that has been uploaded to YouTube here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbM-gbB4dqE. Rate it, favourite it and repost it!

SHOW YOUR HEART!!!



Do it for Puss!

We still have some messages to upload so if yours isn't there, don't worry!

Messages 55-65 are added to the website!

I am updating to remind everyone to please read the rules carefully. Most of you do so, and it might not happen on purpose, but please, make sure to check that your photos are good to go before you send them in!

The maximum width of the image can be 800px, and the maximum height can be 600px.
The maximum size is 700KB.

I've had a few that still needed resizing/editing after I received them. I don't mind doing that, but since the deadline is quite tight and it becomes a rather time consuming process, I'd like to remind everyone again :>
Also, there have been a few troubles with accessing photos from time to time on Facebook, so unless you really have nowhere else to upload it, I hope you guys can up them on more reliable servers!

Thanks for all your messages so far, let's make this yet another wonderful project!♡
Please keep your messages coming, there's only 5 days left! Details and the submissions form can be found here

 Hey everyone! It looks like things seem to be moving along nicely, but I wanted to help with advertising, so I threw together this video:




Please rate and comment on it on the youtube page so that it might be featured and more people can see it! Don't forget to spread it around, as well!

Please remember to provided this link when you spread the video:

http://www.irreplaceableflower.com/showyourheart.html

Much love to everyone!

Another batch of messages has been added to the site and there are more to be added.

I've already seen some advertising around and shortly, we'll have another promotional video ready (remember, last time it was a video that was seen by GACKT first).

Thanks to everyone who has promoted the project already! I hope we can get as many people involved as possible.

I've done my little bit of promoting today too.

If you head over to the GACKT and DEARS community site and look at the blogs that sit between the news and the Staff Blogs, you might see this (hopefully it won't have fallen off the front page yet)...





REMEMBER TO SUBMIT YOUR MESSAGE. FULL DETAILS AND THE SUBMISSIONS FORM CAN BE FOUND HERE

The first batch of messages, 35 in total, have been added to the website

Thanks to everyone who has submitted so far! We'll continue adding the messages as quickly as we can.

Last time, a large reason why the Irreplaceable Flower website was so successful was because of how it was advertised.

There were YouTube videos, graphics and links left in lots of different places by so many wonderful Dears and it meant that not only did we get messages from people not on LiveJournal, but it also gave a little push and reminder to some people who were on LiveJournal.

So, we want to do it again!

Share the link to the website or this community on your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or whatever else you have. Invite your friends (a Facebook event was a great success last time, does anyone fancy making one for this time?), advertise in communities... Wherever you think there will be people who would be interested in getting involved.

We're open to all suggestions! Just don't spam anywhere...!

Graphics to advertise the project and site and videos to explain what we're doing are also much appreciated.

We want to get more messages than last time, right?!

Please leave a comment if you have any ideas or things to share.

AND REMEMBER TO SUBMIT YOUR MESSAGE. FULL DETAILS AND THE SUBMISSIONS FORM CAN BE FOUND HERE

After the European tour last year, we opened this community and the Irreplaceable Flower website. The idea was for all of the DEARS across the world to send their thanks to GACKT (and JOB) for the European tour and for the hard work they do daily just to please us and make us happy.

We’ve all been watching (or living through) the disasters that have hit Japan over the past week. We’ve seen the footage of the Japanese people who have been affected by the earthquake and the tsunami and are all monitoring the situation with the nuclear reactors. The people of Japan need our help and support.

We’ve also all seen the hard work that GACKT has put into the SHOW YOUR HEART project. We’ve read his blogs to see how it has affected him personally, and we’ve read his comments about the backlash from the press.

So, anei_no_tsuki and myself have decided to reopen this project!

We have opened a new section on the website so that you can all leave your messages both for GACKT and for the people of Japan. It’s not much, but let’s send our 気愛 to everyone in Japan to let them know that the world is with them!

Of course, the website will be sent to GACKT and last year, he saw your messages. We can make him smile again this year too, right?! We’ll also send the link to organisations in Japan to show them that the world is with them.

Submission guidlinesCollapse )

How can I help?Collapse )

For anyone who isn't entirely sure what this is all about then this is the best place to start!

Any questions, please ask! You can leave a comment, send a PM or send an email here

We aim to send the link to GACKT and the other relevant people around March 28th. So, to give us time to make sure everything is perfect, the deadlines for submissions is Saturday March 26th.

LET’S SHOW OUR HEARTS EVERYONE!

Hello Everyone!

Since I saw poor Kellie keeps getting emails from people asking when their messages are going to be up,
I thought I'd go and write a little update on the process of things myself.

First of all, the website just got updated again and has now an exact amount of 200 messages online!!!
Thank you all so much for sending them in.
Some of them took longer than others to put up, and for this, I am sorry. There were some minor problems along the way where the photos had been uploaded but I had not received the messages from. It seems that the server had been having some trouble, too, since I had a few time out errors yesterday and since then I started receiving some emails containing messages that were sent about 5 days before, but, probably got stuck in the air somewhere because of the error.

I hope the provider fixes this issue soon, so please wait patiently until your message is up, give us at least a time span of three days to do so.

As for updating for the next week, I have to alert you all to something;

I am currently spending my last few days here in Japan, and I'm very busy at the moment (After all, who sits behind their computer all day in Japan!) And I will be doing my last shopping, hop over to the other side of Japan for the weekend for the Kenshin festival, go back to Tokyo on the 23rd in the morning, go to another YFC live, and fly back home the next day.

Please keep in mind I can not do a lot or no updates until at least August 28th.
Other than that, I have to thank everyone for their wonderful messages, their kiai, for everyone else involved for their hard work, and of course, Gackt himself for taking the time to look at it!


We'll make sure he's going to want to check back on this website!!!
