-- The Terms of Usage -----------------------

If you would like to use anything on my site for your own site or whatever, then please refer here. I've divided everything up by categories so it should be easy to find what you're looking for. Please do adhere to these terms! Also note that under no circumstances may you direct link to anything to this site. If you've taken anything to use on your site, then please upload it on to your own server. Besides, hotlinking has been disabled and you won't get the image you want anyhow. Please practice proper internet etiquette and when in doubt, just email me with your question.

General Galleries: Anime Screenshots, Manga Scans, Miscellaneous Pictures
Unless specified otherwise, you may use those images on your site with a limitation of 5 maximum pictures you may take. Please don't take the entire gallery or some such thing; that's definitely not cool. It would be nice if you can also give credit to this site. If for any reason, you'd like to use more than 5, you must email me to get special permission. If it's not a ridiculous number, I'll probably say yes. Also, if the pictures are watermarked with my site's url or name, you must keep them intact. You may not edit them out. And finally, I would also appreciate it if you could let me know when you use these pictures. I just like to know where they're circulating to- plus it'd be cool to check out your site too. ^_^

The HYD Cels Gallery
Unlike the other galleries, you may not take these images at all. They're not for sale, not to be reproduced in any manner, not to be posted anywhere. Period. Basically, you may enjoy them but please leave them alone.

Extras: Wallpapers, Avatars/Icons, MP3s, etc.
For wallpapers, feel free to download them for your own personal use, meaning on your computer as the desktop image. However, you may not use them on your site regardless whether you're offering them for your visitors or you're using them as your layout bg. That is, unless you've obtained permission from the respective creators. For avatars and icons, you may use them on message boards, your LJ, messenging services and such- but you may not offer them on your site. Remember not to direct link. Credit provided to this site will also be greatly appreciated. And finally, please do not cut, crop, or edit any of the wallpapers or avatars to use for your site's layout, create signatures, or whatever. Basically, keep them intact as they were made.

Fanwork: Fanfictions, Fanart, Doujinshi, etc.
These are here for your viewing pleasure only. You may NOT direct link to them or take these, especially to put up on your site without proper permission. People work hard on them and it's really not nice to just take them and offer it without permission. They may not be used for your layouts either. Basically, just leave them as they are on this site. I cannot stress this enough.

The Layout: Past or Present as well as ANY part of the layout
You may not use anything that I've done for the layout whether it's the images I've incorporated or the layout itself. I spent a lot of time on it and they're created solely for this shrine and are not meant to be used by anyone or anywhere else. Create your own layouts and edit your own original pictures! The banners and buttons for this site may only be used for linking to the shrine. You may not use them to decorate your site, signature, or whatever else without having it link back to site. Most of all, do not use them for linking to your site or other sites!! Believe it or not, I encounter this a lot. *groans*

Written Content: Any Descriptions, Summaries, Theories, etc.
This pertains to all the "words" you see on this site. You may use them for a very general reference only. In no way should you copy them to use on your site. I spent an insane amount of time writing these and looking things up when needed so please don't take anything I've written and just blatantly use it on your site or a post in message boards. You can quote some sections of my written content at a message board provided that you give credit and link back here. This all applies to the other written stuff on the site like visitor's submissions, their theories, their comments, etc. All of them belong on this site and only on this site unless they've personally submitted the same thing to your site. Having people take my written content is one of the biggest problems I come across- so know that I won't just sit by quietly while you copy. If you really really want to use anything that I've written or to quote it, you must email me for special permission.
