Fun Facts + Guestbook

Written by Aki 0 Comments Hydeist, Website, News
Even though it's pretty late, I've decided to add the fun facts page; a page that might end up being updated from time to time whenever I see new ones about our angel. I'm also starting to make icons for the multimedia sections so I'm looking over the screen captions I currently have and add more using the old photos I have in my old drive.

The guestbook page is already up and running. It will hold up messages for the entirety of Hydeist. So drop Hyde some cookies on the guestbook before you leave.

Slacking Off 101

Written by Aki 0 Comments Hydeist, Website, News
No, don't look at the archives--you'll see how many months I've been slacking off since the proposed comeback of this shrine. No, seriously. I'm really not slacking off. I'm just busy with my life outside the internet and I'm actually working on two shrines simultaneously. There's a bunch of work to do there and wait, I'm running out of English.

First of all, I was really disappointed and not satisfied with the previous layout that I've made. It was so... dull, I think that's the right word. So I've decided to reconstruct the design into a different one; although it has the same header image, only that I've added a shadow image and changed the fonts, background and colors around the entire place. And this satisfies my vintage taste. I feel like I'm looking in an old love letter placed atop an old furniture inside an ancient mansion. Dreamland eh?

Secondly, woooh~ I've finally managed to open up a bunch of pages that were left empty these past few years. Well, not exactly empty, they were just not published during those times. Two pages are honestly in a state of coma heavy construction; naming gallery and screencaps. They are not empty now, you can somehow browse some pictures there. The old ones are still piled up in my old hard drive and I still haven't transferred them to my external hard disc mainly because (1) I can't find a cable that would fit into the motherboard and (2) I don't know where the hell is my old hard drive.

I can honestly think that maybe Kami-sama is punishing me for slacking off and forgetting about this shrine.

We're Still Alive!

Written by Aki 0 Comments Hydeist, Website, News
Hello people! It's been four years since I've announced the revamp and hiatus of Hydeist and I don't know how exactly to apologize for neglecting this fansite. Can you believe that? This shrine has been asleep for that long!

The reason behind that long hiatus is the main gallery. I wasn't able to put them up on time due to hectic schedules way back at the university (with my current major, I can only sleep 2-3 hours max, with my weekends taken by homework and plates ) and that I've been switching from one host to another. Apparently, I lost interest cleaning up the images because of my screwed up computer. So I've decided to go back to that old work once I have a new computer that would not piss me off because of lag and stuff. Unfortunately, I still haven't bought a new one but I'm planning to buy next week.

Every page in this shrine is already up and running except for the gallery. I currently have more than 70 images in my old drive so expect that addition of images would be by 10s... hopefully! I'm really am sorry for not updating.
