So to working I go! Itèll take a while for me to get the new folders all ready, but when they are, there will be a stickied journal entry detailing what kinds of works goes where. My friend found some cool code I could try in the blog entry to make it neat and organized.

What to know:
:bulletgreen: Submissions will likely be slow. As the new folders are being made, the other folders are going into an "Unsure and Not Sorted" folder in which us admins will go through and remove deviations in storage and organise the old stuff into their new places. After that's done, the folder will become available for members to post in if they find the directions confusing, or really just have no idea where it would belong.

:bulletgreen: I'm going to post about some languages that are non-English to see if people speak other languages. If possible, maybe we could get some volenteers to help translate the revised rules.

:bulletgreen: I'm also looking to design a journal skin for the group. I've got the art skills, but my coding skills are laughable. Volenteers would make that go much faster. I've yet to decide on a theme for it, like mochis, Catalias, Mascots, whatever, so this is for the future, somewhere in 2015.

:bulletgreen: if you missed signing up for Secret Santa, I'm starting up a late round. You have until the 12th to join the latecommer's round, and it is seperate from the first round as I wish not to trouble everyone by redrawing those names.

:bulletgreen: I know have a solid schedule in which I have Fridays and Saturdays off. You'll see a lot more action from me in the coming days, and I'll be dedicating them to sorting the folders out. I'm aiming to give the group a refresh for 2015, and I hope you all like the new organization when it's finished. We'll also restart the battle polls since people liked clicking things.

Thanks for all your patience, we won't dissapoint!
Apparently the only thing Paypal isn't instant on is Deviantart. It says we'll be waiting 5-8 buisness days for it, but we'll see what we can do while we wait as far as organization goes. Sorry for the inconvenience, I guess I should have checked that before I said anything. It's in processing though, we just gotta give it a few days.

Sorry about that >.<
SECRET SANTA BEGINS!
Everyone should have been sent a message entitled “You're a Secret Santa!” with the name of the person of whom you will be making a gift for. Please be sure to upload your gift here: hetaliafans.deviantart.com/gal… before December 25th. Thanks for signing on and remember: keep everything PG, k? Not everyone who mentions they like a pairing is interested in porn, even if some are. We want to be able to keep these works in a folder, after all.

You can gift a variety of things including animations, drawings, paintings, mini games, calendar-style pages, and even stories! Try to make the stories at least a page or so long (at 12 Times New Roman) if you decide to write one so that the receiver of the gift has something of substance to geek over~

NEW YEARS CONTEST
Details: Judged by a grading system by participating admins and volenteers from HetaliaFans or affiliated groups, participants in the contest can create and display videos of their cool new years cosplay skits, animations, paper crafts and paper children collections in creative display, paintings, sculptures, drawings, tattoos, short stories 3-10 pages long (Times New Roman, 12) or whatever creative thing you have to celebrate with! Do not reuse old works of yours, this should be this year's celebration, not last years! You will be judged on creativity, feels (that's right f**kin feels) and execution primarily.

Folder: hetaliafans.deviantart.com/gal…

Deadline: January 1, 2015, Winners are announced on the following day.

Prizes:
1st place: 1 Year Premium DA Membership
2nd Place: 6 Months Premium DA Membership
3rd place: 3 Months Premium DA Membership
4th place: 1 Month  Premium DA Membership

Judges: :iconruehl21: :iconkojilikurasu:

*Choosing to judge disqualifies you from participating in the contest, but donating a prize does not. You may donate prizes until December 26th. If you would like to judge, let Ruehl21 know, otherwise, if you would like to donate a prize or wish to ask a question, feel free to comment here or via group notes.
First off, a big thanks to :iconluckysapphire14: and :iconsnowfirewolf: for offering to be temperary admins / moderators for the group for a while. It's greatly appreciated and will help me get things rolling again. Another big thanks goes out to :iconhtts-america: (who is also :iconevilqueen112: ) for becoming my newest co-founder and showing so much interest and throwing out ideas on the table.

I look forward to working with all of you~

Now, to get us started, here's some events!

SECRET SANTA
The first time we did a secret santa event everyone absolutely loved it, so lets do it again! To sign up, simply comment on this journal that you'd likd to be added to the list, and who your favourite hetalia character is, and up to two other things and/or characters you like. Your santa will use these as ideas for your gift. If you love the whole cast of hetalia, then feel free to say so. You get more of a supprise that way. Do not join in if you don't think you can get your gift done in three weeks, and make sure it's an online thing so you aren't asking for adresses. Animations, drawings, and painings are among the various allowed things to gift and you have until the 4th to sign up - thats when the list goes up and everyone is messaged their santas, drawn from my trusty dusty Canadian themed hat. Following that, you'll have up to December 25th to finish your gift and upload it to the folder we will be putting up on the 4th. The Journal update will even contain a link, so don't delete the journal from your notifications for easy access.

NEW YEARS CONTEST
We'll be doing a new years themed contest, of which the details will be announced on the 4th as well. if you would like to donate or offer a prize for the contest, feel free to down below in the comments. The contest would be ending on the 1st of January, allowing for creative ideas like cosplay skits on yourtube to be filmed whilst actually celebrating the event. All the birds with one stone. Judging will happen on the first by any of the admins that choose to dedicate their time and the winners are announced on the 2nd of January.

Of course, I'll be donating some cool stuff for the contest in the form of premium memberships.
1st place: 1 year
2nd Place: 6 Months
3rd place: 3 months
4th place: 1 Month

If you have any questions, just ask.
Thanks for reading~
Offline life hit like a train one thing at a time, but I've become sick and tired of not getting to do all the things I wanna do, which includes looking after this group better. So! Here are some changes: It now should only take one vote for subbmissions to go through. We are accepting a few new admins, and I will be here all of Friday the 5th. On the 5th I will give this group super-group status once again, and use it to better organise the group in a way that won't be so confusing for members, as soem were having trouble finding things or didn't understand how they could submit.

If you have any suggestions, or would like to volenteer your time as a perminant or even a temperary staff member, feel free to comment here or send a message. If peopel are up for it, we could rekindle the group with a secret santa event as well.

I'll check back as often as I can throughout the week, but I'll be sure to be here Friday without a doubt. See you all soon

Welcome to HetaliaFans!

HetaliaFans is currently undergoing a December-long organization process to optimise the group for new and confused users. Please be patient with us and feel free to ask questions!

The Group
:iconhetaliafans:
Here we accept OCs, among many other things. We like to have contests regularly, too. Who doesn't like a good contest?

The Chat
:iconhetafamily:
Over at our chat base we keep track of events and character lists for our chat. Should you wish to join, you will find everything you need there!

True Affiliates
This is where we will put the icons of our true affiliates, not just people that send us affiliation things through the useless widget.
Although it isn't official, I've requested a true affiliation with Hetalia-Artists, and I'm testing out the idea for them to see, so here is our short list for now:
:iconhetalia-artists::iconmalehetaliafans::iconaph-ahoge-lovers::iconhetalia:

Also, Hetalia isn't the only thing our beloved PapaHima has made! The group may not have a Hetalia folder (more fans of Hetalia means it would get overloaded) but it does have a crossover folder and folders for the other works. please look at this other group if you're interested~
:iconkitayume:

If we have enough people that speak different languages, we should try to translate and be more accessible to them. If you speak another language and sometimes have trouble reading English or know someone who does, please click which one below:

I'm trying to bring things back to life! I've got a really busy college schedule this semester, and I know many of the other admin are in college, and some even hold jobs (or multiple jobs), so it's really difficult to do.

I'd like to create a Hetalia OC, and I'd also like to to base him/her off of a fictitious country of my creation so that a) I don't offend anyone and b) there aren't things such as stereotypes to restrict the personality creation. I this practice generally allowed, or should I use an existing city/state/country?

For joining the roleplay? It'd have to have a discussion to it with the rest of the admin. I'm a bit wary of fictional country characters, since the last roleplay I was in got filled with them and things got way out of hand.

Oh, sorry! It looks like I submitted my fanfiction to the wrong folder. Just to be sure. "Tragedy and Feels"
 is indeed a literature folder, correct?
