First of all, we have a co-mod now! (He is on the other side of the planet--it'll help with the whole...time difference thing in case something happens and one of us is at work or sleeping.) Everyone say hi tomumumugen
, the new co-mod!
Also, in regards to recent concerns, I will address them now.1) About OC Nations:
I should have mentioned this when I first started this community, but I never expected it to get so big, so here is the rule about OC Nations:Please put them in nationslash
. The reason behind this because of the fact that they are OC nations and not technically characters of Axis Powers Hetalia (created by Hidekaz) and therefore do not count as a part of "fanworks of Hetalia." So please put them into nationslash
by this time next week or I will have to delete them.
2) Concerning fanworks.
Fanworks will be posted as usual onto this comm, and I had originally intended for this community to not only be for scanlations, news, and discussions but also for fanworks. People have indeed complained about the huge number of posts that seem to have clogged the community as well as their friends' list, and for this, I can only offer the following suggestions:
-Post an art dump (like an art digest) of many pictures in a post, perhaps once or twice a week instead of one picture a day. This is encouraged for doodles, sketches, and Pchat logs. But if you feel that your work is something that has taken a great amount of time to complete, go ahead and make one post dedicated to it. Please use your best judgement.
-If you feel that you are scrolling over too many fanworks to get to news or scanlations and that it's clogging up your flist, my suggestion is to actually takehetalia
off your watch list (while still being a member) and then bookmarking the comm itself. Then use the tag system, which I have posted links to at the top of the comm page.
-TAGGING AND LABELING ARE NOW REQUIRED. This is to make things more organized and efficient for people, and also make things easier to read. The content labeling template can be found in the rules section of the community profile.
-It would be even better (encouraged) if you used also used labeling in the subject line that is in brackets, like the one in this post. (example: [Mod Post] [fanart] [fanfic] [question], etc.)
-PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER TO LABEL THINGS THAT ARE NOT WORKSAFE.
if there is anything I didn't touch upon or need more explaining, please leave a comment!
