[Tutorial] How to join Gackt & Dears community official website ?  
Hello everyone ! :)
In the begining of February, I've joined the official GACKT website called "Gackt annd Dears community". This is where the staffblog entries are posted, you can acces to the BBS and watching You's special blog, and many other features. On this website, you can find some great wallpapers, send greeting cards to friends, create a official blog where you can talk about your mood, GACKT, what you want. Yes, but you have to be a member of this community in order to acces to all of this. You surely starting to wondering "How ? I'm not living in Japan !", right ?
Well, I've met someone recently who have told me how she have joined and created an account over there. I can't thanks her enough for told me how to join this awesome website. I've decided to write a tutorial then, for those who want to do the same, joining this community and enjoying all the features aviable on it. I think it will help a lot of peoples, because I've seen a lot of official Dears members who are not member of this website, just because they didn't know how to join.

A few rules before starting this tutorial. I've to tell you that the blog you will create on this community don't have to contain copyrighted stuff, I mean by that download links, scans, MP3. They don't want to have problems with this, and it's not for Gackt copyright only but for everything who are copyrighted in the world. I don't take any responsabilites for the contain you will post on your blog, okay ?
All the contain of the Gackt & Dears community website (pictures, wallpapers, etc ...) should not be shared, if you decide to do it, it's as your own risk, not mine, I hope you will understand

The price for joining the community is 1,050 Yens peer month (Around 8€), you need to have a credit card VISA, or Master Card. The first month you're suscribing is free, I haven't paid yet, so I'm sure about this ! ^__^

Are you ready everyone ?
If you have approved the rules about blog contain and pictures and everything related to the community, you can continue to read in order to know how to suscribe ! ^_^
Feel free to link this entry if you want to share this tutorial, but don't copy this without my permission please, thanks !


Let's start by choosing wich website you will use for suscribing to the community. Only one of them accept overseas credit cards, it's So-Net. Follow this link and you will arrive on the rule page :


Accept the rules just like this picture :

You will be redirected to the suscription page, where you will entering many things. Here is the translation of each parts of this page ! =)

First thing, the red box. It's a useless box, forget this part, you don't have to write something in this part at all for suscribing.

The second box is where you will write your name in 3 different forms (Kanji, Katakana, Romanji), I suggest you to use this website in order to write in Romanji your name. The website is not really accurate, but it's working perfectly. And for the Katakana part, you can write in Kanji, it's working ! ^_^

The third box is the most complicated one without any help. It's where you will have to enter your "supposed" japanese adress, in Kanji. So write the things like I will write them here, okay ? They don't check if the adress is correct or not, so I've choosen to use the CDJapan adress, taken from a old package I've recieved ! lol
Postal code : 103-0012
Apartments : 中央区日本橋堀留町1-10-12
Floor : 2F
Phone Number : 03-3665-4940

This box is where you will entering your credit card informations. Choose "MASTER" for a Master Card, or "VISA" for a Visa Card ! ^_^

The last box before the end of the suscription is where you will entering your username and your password. Be carefull and put number & letters on your username and password. Don't write like this "Tenshin26100", but like this "tenshin26100", surely because japanese websites don't accept those kind of letters.

Clic on THIS button in order to finish and validate all of this, here is a picture of the button, because the other button erase all you have written ! xD

Well, if you have followed the tutorial well and entered your credit card numbers without any mistakes, you will see this on your screen. If you see this screen, it's also mean that you have recieved an e-mail about the registration. Check it later. NEVER FORGET the ID name you see on the screen, write it on a paper or somewhere, it will be your username login for Gackt & Dears community. Click on the link showed in the screencap and login yourself with the ID that you have written somewhere and your password. You're finally an OFFICIAL member of this community, great isn't it ? ^^

It's not yet over, because you will see after to be logged in the website that kind of screen. Follow the instructions on the screencap and confirm the settings ! :)

Well, the tutorial is over, if you have any questions, don't hesitate and ask by leaving a comment here ! ^_^
If peoples want to have a translation of the website features and your profile, I will made one too, I just want to know if it will interest a lot of peoples or not before ! ^_^
It would be interesting too if you write your username of the website if you suscribe, in order to share our respective blogs ! ^^

Thanks for that... I might consider joining in May... If I have the money for. *sigh*
And about the DEARS fans not knowing how to join... I think they know but paying for the fanclub and paying for the community... that's just... don't know the english word so I'll keep silent.

You're welcome ! ^^ Don't forget to tell me your blog adress when you will joining if you join ! ^_^
I've a friend who want to be a member of this website for a while, she have the money but didn't know how to join, she was like "WTF, I can ?" when I've sent her the tutorial, so maybe you're right, but most of them don't know how to join ! ^^

Layla: MOONCHILDshadowychan on February 12th, 2010 05:44 pm (UTC)
I've been looking forward to this!! You are really good at making tutorials. I can't thank you enough!!

Okay now I'm checking how many 1,050 YEN are in my currency, it's 42. I want to ask, if my free subscription after the 1st month finishes I can pay later for how many months? I mean I only need to pay 1,050 YEN and no more later? Like if a subscription finishes after some months? Should I be entering my Credit Card information to join now? Or I can fill that later after I join??
Tenshin26100tenshin26100 on February 12th, 2010 05:53 pm (UTC)
Oh, you like my tutorial, thanks, and you're welcome for this ! ^_^

I've edited the tutorial, it's peer months you have to pay. First month is free. They take you the money without doing anything, and when you don't have enough money on your bank account, the website block your account ! ^^

Tenshin26100tenshin26100 on February 12th, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
You're welcome ! ^^
The community is mainly for blog, but not only, for example, if you see the latest entry of the You blog, the entry is not fully public for the text, and you can't see his old entries, that's why I say this ! ^^

Thanks for the tutorial! I think fees are pretty high if we think about a year, but since it's per month paying... maybe I'll get it, if my credit card will be approved.

I've tried to do it through Yahoo ID - it also permits using foreign credit cards, but it denied mine one T_T
Tenshin26100tenshin26100 on February 12th, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)
It's only working with So-Net, that's why I've made a tutorial with this service and not Yahoo ! ^^

I hope you will be able to suscribe ! :)
