Website ❱ F.A.Q.

I know this shrine is quite small but for you Hydeist people, I've made these frequently asked questions with answers of course. If you have any other question that's not listed below, please contact me and I'll solve your problem.

Who is HYDE? Or Hideto Takarai?

Hideto Takarai, most commonly known as HYDE is a musician and is the vocalist and main lyricist of the famous and successful Japanese rock band, L`Arc~en~ciel. Full information can be found on the basic information and profile.


Betsuni is a Japanese word which means "nothing" in English. I named the mother domain as betsuni as to what Hyde often say... you can found that on his profile page. :)

Can I use your shrine's contents for my website?

I don't have any problem with that as long as you give this shrine a proper credit especially to whoever and wherever contents were made or taken from. Credit us on the page were you put the content, but please try to at least put the credit on some place on your web page where people can clearly see it. If you take something out of here, please don't be afraid to e-mail me so that I will know where my stuffs are going.

Your images are great, can I make use of them?

If you wish to use the graphics here especially Hyde's photos located on the gallery (except the layout used here) for your layouts or some graphics, yes you can use them but please DO NOT forget to link this shrine back... I've spent so many days on cleaning and scanning a lot of Hyde's pictures. And! I've put the site's address on the lower right part of the image's frame so that you can use them without the difficulty of erasing or cutting the image.

There is a broken link or the page cannot be accessed.

Please check the links first if there are some special characters inserted 'before' it (double asterisks [**] means that it's an upcoming page while the single asterisk [*] means that it's been updated).
