As of August 12, there have been 48 meetups submitted to the directory. Countries with meetups include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Portugal, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and United States!
"But there's still no meetup in my city!"
Again and again, I will remind you that most hosts start their planning during September and October. (If you really can't wait, you can organize your own or submit your city to our "Hetalia Day Wanted Here" page.)
And speaking of Hetalia Day Wanted Here...
There have been numerous requests for (more) Hetalia Day meetups in the following countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, El Salvador, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam. For which cities in those countries, please visit the page.
Meanwhile, the cities/locations with the strongest demand for a Hetalia Day meetup (according to that list) are:
If you're wondering where Hetalia Day meetups have been held in the past (but are feeling too lazy to scan the directories), then here's something for you.
Every past meetup (that's not striked out) in the directories has been plotted in a Google Map.
Because there's a limit to how many markers/places that can be displayed in one page, there are two versions of this map.
Version 1: The real map, which is divided into two pages.
Version 2: A hack of the first map, which displays all the markers.
Feel free to explore any of the two!
A reminder: All meetups registered so far are listed in the directory. If you're hoping for a meetup in your city, visit the Hetalia Day Wanted Here! page. Vote for your city, so that other fans may know that there's interest for meetup in your area.
The directory is now open for your meetups! Email your Hetalia Day details (where, when, website) to email@example.com. (For more info on organizing your Hetalia Day event, check out the updated FAQ.)
There’s also a new section in the site called “Hetalia Day Wanted Here!”. This can be used to check if there’s enough interest for a Hetalia Day in your location.
I’d like to thank rosel-d who lent us his fanart for this year’s banner. His style is reminiscent of Himaruya’s so it easily caught my attention. Visit his deviantART for more Himaruya-esque Hetalia fanart.
(If you’d like to use the banner above for your meetup, here is the template as a PSD.)
I've installed Wordpress at the main site, hetalia-day.com. That will be the main blog now. But this FC2 blog will still be up, and will still be updated as a backup blog.
(I'm referring to this problem.)
Workaround (for the Facebook hosts)
1. Add this Facebook account as a friend: http://www.facebook.com/hetalia.day.admin
2. Add it as a host to the event, and let's see if from that account we can set the event to Public.
That is how we solved this problem previously. But it only worked for some.
Workaround (for the rest of the attendees)
If you still can't view that event, add the said Facebook account above, and if I am a host of that event, I'll invite you.
