Sane vs. InsaneA Sane Hetalia fan is:
Come and join if you love/like/think Hetalia is okay, as long as you have common sense. Typically, people think Hetalia fans are history-major wannabe weeaboos who think that the history textbook is one big fanfic. Not every Hetalia fan is like that, so that's what this group is for. Let us enjoy Hetalia for fun and/or the history without the shit and drama created by the rabid fangirls who give us sane fans a bad name. I am a huge Hetalia fan myself, but I know history and I enjoy it like I enjoy any other subjects at school.
From another admin: The reason why this group is created because we got tired of morons/weeaboos bastardizing a nation just for the desu or 'BECAUSE I SAID SO!!1'. Of course, lets not forget how insulting it can be when Hetafags use nations for certain events just for fanart or just plain faggotry (remember Japan's crisis and Norway's too? Yet not a single fu** was given for Libya). Due to this, Hetalia fans get stereotyped as idiots, weeaboos, fat basement-dweller, racists and so on... This is 100% for Hetafags, but not every single fan is the same. I have met a lot of fans that are into Hetalia for the History or cause they're patriots and wanna 'respect' their nation as a personified character. I understand that, since I too am only in it cause of that (love the fandom; dislike the anime). I was really happy to see how many people are interested in that, and it gave me hope. There are also the occasional fans that got into History cause of Hetalia, and that's fine too.
What do you mean by "sane"?
Rules in General(most of it's common sense)
1.) All opinions are accepted, as long as you're respectful or your opinion doesn't contain bigoted, racist, homophobic, heterophobic, biphobic, transphobic, or overall harmful opinions.
2.) OCs: Anything researched and well-done. Do NOT post Mary-Sues, white washed, Historically inaccurate characters and so.
If you want to make fun of bad OCs and other shit, post them in the KAWAII DESU folder.
1.)Submit to the folder where the certain country is located. Please see this list if you are having troubles. sanehetaliafans.deviantart.com…
2.) Don't submit to the featured folder. Only admins can do that.
3.) Quality control, meaning do not get upset if your submission gets declined.
5.) It has to be a clean scan or picture, meaning no shitty dark camera shot or lined notebook paper or any of that shit. Don't shove it in our faces when we can't even tell what it is.
6.) No mmds, screenshots, bases, or art theft.
7.) You can submit fanart, fanfics, stamps, and other things. You can submit anything, either positive or negative, as long as they don't break ToS, portray the characters poorly (unless if it has a trigger warning), or contain bigoted, racist or harmful materials.

First of all, did you read the rules? It is obvious that you haven't. No, we don't reject people who have different opinions from us. For example, I don't like USUK, but that doesn't mean that I deny people's requests just because they like USUK. Everyone here has freedom of speech/press/expression, as long as they're not weeaboos, bigoted, offensive, flaming, violating the ToS, nor tending to do more harm than good. People can like/hate whatever they want. You really need to get your head out of your ass. kthxbai
You're taking a comedy anime seriously.
What if I want to clean up my act and join this group?
Deep down, we really like to help you out. We have plenty of resources for Hetalia bullshittery and informations on different countries, states, provinces etc. It is best to watch this group because I don't want the hetafags to use this "I wanna clean up my act" thing as a ticket to join this group. Remove things that are violating TOS, portraying the characters poorly, or have bigoted, racist, or harmful materials. If you really feel like you're clean or just out of the weeaboo phase, you can join, but the request will take you a while because we are still looking at your gallery for any of the rule-breaking materials.
How to join
1.) Send a request and be CONCISE AND CLEAR and to the POINT. Don't ramble on, and don't approach it like "OMG there are so many fans out there that are so duummbbb!!11". A better approach would be, for example, to tell us how you can contribute to this community.
2.) (If you want to, since no one does it [SprinkleKrisKris]) at the end of your request, write "make pasta not war".
I didn't get approved. Why?
Because you are:
a) A weeaboo.
b) Through your page, we have spotted something offensive to a random nation just for its character.
c)Your OCs are very bad, and yet not parodies of some sort.
d)You violate one or more of the rules in the ToS. We don't want thieves!
e)If you request a membership after being denied, you won't get accepted. Keep it up, and you will get blocked (Unless if we tell you to send another request, go ahead, but please have the requirements for membership)
f)You probably just suck.
g)You didn't read our rules about our requirements for member requests. (look at letter e in parenthesis.)
Some final words:
Just to let you know, we want to have a peaceful group. Educate the insane. Act like a good influence. No flaming allowed. Also, the admins are not solely responsible for one's actions. If you act rude to anyone in this group, you will have your membership removed. Keep it up and you will get blocked. If you need help, let us know. Also, you can submit a journal blog, as long as it's anything but a personal rant. You can write your rants etc. on your own journal and submit it to the folder "Journal, Rants are more.." instead of the group's journal. We are NOT your personal army.
Ok! I have joined. What now?
Welcome then! Feel free to ask a question if needed and share your 'conflict' with Hetafags, or submit some art. Keep is toasty.
