*comes across this in the massive pile of paperwork*

(I just...didn't answer these very well D: But I know you guys will answer everything and it will be amazing! <3)

1. One thing you like about HUE so far. (It can be anything, from the color scheme to a profile you are proud of writing.)

Gosh...I have to choose ONE THING?! D: I'd have to say, the one thing I like about HUE is YOU GUYS. You guys are wonderful >w<

2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)

MORE PEOPLE...and more action in the plots (wait, that's two...O.o)

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)

Well...being one of the admins, I think it would be nice to have more free time (so we can be here for you guys *cries*)

4. What is your favorite holiday?

I suppose...Christmas. I am not very fond of my birthday, and I dress up on more occasions than Halloween. (Thanksgiving is okay, but I usually work XD) I choose it not because I get presents (I'm cool without those things), but because I really love picking out gifts for people. I have it in my head I'm a terrible gift-giver/picker...but everyone I give gifts to disagrees. I am only super happy to hear it because it shows I know them and pay attention to what they like ^^

Thank you, everyone! We are over a year old, and we would not still be here without you. *bows*

*wakes up* Ve...is it that time again...?

My favorite holiday would have to be...Pasta Day...does summer vacation count? *shot* IMEANFOURTHOFJULY!

...not because I'm obsessed with Alfred or anything...nope...>.>

Actually, I like that holiday here because it has a lot of random family traditions...and now that we're all older and working and my grandparents aren't in the best health, we really do those things anymore D: I grew up always going to my grandparents' house. My granddad loved to cook on the grill, so we'd make hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, grilled veggies...all of that...with other picnic foods. Mom always ALWAYS made a cake or some random dessert, and it always had a flag. We'd go to the park not far from their house to watch the fireworks, sitting on the roof of our minivan and staring out over the river. As we got older, our grandparents stopped going with us to the fireworks...but we still had the cookouts. But they aren't doing well, so in recent years they've been coming to our house for picnic foods indoors. I've kind of missed it...either because of work or because there really isn't anything like cooking on an outdoor grill.

(I still managed to pick a food-related holiday! YES! Though Christmas is a close second because my mom ALWAYS cooks Italian on Christmas...homemade Italian food...*melts* But I already chose that as Keeks, so...>.>)

Ve, I'm off to eat more pasta~! *hungryyy*

    1. One thing you like about HUE so far. (It can be anything, from the color scheme to a profile you are proud of writing.)
    I really love the atmosphere and the many ways we can develop characters and relationships via very different AUs!

    2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)
    New AUs, maybe more opportunities for more ooc chat (because I'm still shy about asking for a lot of RP or plotting from people, hehe), group RP events to get more interactions and development?

    3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)
    I think you guys are doing an awesome job so I can't really think of anything... The organization is good and I think everything else is pretty fair. Eh, encouraging more interaction?

    4. What is your favorite holiday?
    Halloween because it's spooky!

    No RP links this time around? Hehe, I actually made it to the check in this time.

Can I pick because Kiku is here? Yea that would be the thing I like best about Hue.

2. One thing you would like to see.


Ehh.. more activity in threads so that they don't end up getting stuck and forgotten?

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve.

Activity

4. What is your favorite holiday?

Christmas mainly because I love giving gifts to everyone and hunting down what they like, over decorating their mailing package and getting pms of them spazing just because an overly decorated package came from japan and then the spaz over the gifts XD I like making people happy even if sometimes my gifts are somewhat odd. (( You are so not a bad gift giver >: dont make me fly there and smack you kiku ))

I love the people and I actually love how little pressure there is to post. Mostly because I'm living an erratic student lifestyle. <.<;;


2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)


Maybe a new look for the board or like a christmas theme? ;3; Idkkkk oh and I would love to do more polls that was actually a lot of fun to do as a forum! =v=/


3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)


Me thinks the admins are running a fine ship! *pets imaginary beard*


4. What is your favorite holiday?


<3 <3 <3 Christmas! <3 <3 <3gifts before ghouls Honestly I just love the family time, also my family is hardcore when it comes to all holidays, after the whole xmas rush for preparing everything, the night itself is perfect. Also we get to open presents on xmas eve. My little sister and I still believe in Santa so its an extra challenge to get all the presents in place before they come back from their evening walk.

Phew, nice change I don't have to stress about posts for once.

1. I'm just gonna be totally unoriginal and say the people, because it bears repeating, you guys are awesome. Especially Kiku and Arthur. I'm not playing favourites!

2. I know the reason there hasn't been much activity is because most of you guys are really busy (I feel almost bad for not being that busy myself XD), so I'm going to agree with and expand on what Kat said: Seasonal banners would be awesome!

3. I wish we could talk in the group chat more. But unless I somehow magically got into the Americans' time zone(s), I wouldn't be able to join anyway unless in the morning or evening (for me).

4. It's a tough pick between Halloween and Christmas. At least I don't have your American things like Thanksgiving and Fourth of July (our national day isn't really that big of a deal. People mostly just put up Swedish flags if they got them and we get the day off work/school), though we do have Midsummer instead. Ultimately, though, I'm going with Christmas not only because presents, but because of our special Swedish traditions like Christmas calenders and Donald Duck (yes, that's a thing, and a very big one too. Look it up).

(Also, Francis/Kat, I once had a Valentine's day roleplay starring France. He tricked people to his house by sending a card saying they won a free car (part of the fun was how many fell for it, including Canada XD) and and boud and gagged them if they were unruly. We planned to have him host his own dating show for the nations, but we never got that far (yet). Also, in a swap of roles, Spain was his henchman.)

1. One thing you like about HUE so far. (It can be anything, from the color scheme to a profile you are proud of writing.)
My favourite thing about HUE is (not to be repetitive or anything) the people here. I love how welcoming everyone is to newer and older members alike, and how supportive everyone is. I feel like this is a second family ;v;

2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)
I can't really think of anything I'd like to see, actually XD

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)
Er, considering I'm one of the admins I don't think this is really a question I'm meant to answer, but I think the forum is run very well as a whole, and I like the fact that our members are all so wonderful.

4. What is your favorite holiday?
Oh man, I'd have to say Halloween by a slim margin. For one, it's the one time of year where I can go out in public wearing outlandish cosplay and not get so many odd stares.
For another, Halloween has always been a favourite holiday of mine because it's always been a time when I can go out, be silly, be myself without having to worry a lot. My mom and/or I have always made my costume for halloween, and I have so many memories of working on it with her, trying this or that, making accessories and seeing it all put together. Even now, I'm always oddly proud of the costumes I do for halloween, and I feel more confident in myself when I know I've done well. I enjoy acting, so I also love being in-character whether I'm going house to house or handing out candy and seeing the kids' reactions.
(Christmas is a really really close second, though, because I like giving people gifts to show them how much I love and appreciate them. Also, Kiku, you are a FANTASTIC gift-giver what are you talking about.)

1. One thing you like about HUE so far. (It can be anything, from the color scheme to a profile you are proud of writing.)
The community here is lovely and always encouraging. Also, the massive scope of each AU is really cool. Every RP feels like a moment in time in a gigantic world and can be revisited and enjoyed as it's own stand alone story.

2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)
Higher frequency of activity in the threads. More AUs would be great too, but asides from that everything else is just fine.

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)
The forum's been run very well so far. I have no complaints.

4. What is your favorite holiday?
Halloween is my all time fav (Christmas is a very close second). Every time it comes around I love getting to see the people around me get so festive about dressing up, holding parties, making haunted houses and heading out with their family and friends to trick or treat. The day is just so innocent and fun and gives everyone a chance to feel like a kid again. Also, trick or treating in my town feels more like a sport. XD It's not about the candy, it's for the love of the game.

I like the family feel, plus I like meeting new people with the same interest in Hetalia.

2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)

Well, I would like to get into more rps. Has already talked to Kiku about this.

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)

Um, I can't really think of anything.

My favorite holiday is Halloween

1. One thing you like about HUE so far: I'm happy with the profiles I've created for my characters and like it when other people plot with me so we can make the stories more interesting and complicated.

2. One thing you would like to see: I'd like to see more replies to some of the threads I'm on. I know I have a couple to catch up on myself, so I haven't been bothering people about it, but I sorta lose some of my motivation when threads I was really excited about kinda sit around for months. XD;

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve: I think you guys are doing a good job! I know it's a lot of work and we all have lives, so I haven't been pushing to get the Wingtalia thing started yet, but I'm here to help if/when you guys need me~

4. What is your favorite holiday? I think I'm going to go with Christmas, just because I love the atmosphere, treats, movies, spending time with my family- everything. Thanksgiving is also awesome because there's so much good food...omg, my favorite meal of the year. Halloween is still fun but it lost some of its charm since I'm never around any kids anymore (everyone is grown! ;~; ) Plus, as a cosplayer, I get to dress up all year round anyway!

I love the AUs that are on here, and all the nice people that I've gotten to know since joining! (sorry to everyone that I haven't been on top of posting lately!)

2. One thing you would like to see. (Again, it can be anything, from more members to a completely new AU)
I'm excited for the idea of a new AU!

3. One thing you feel the admins need to improve. (e.g. the handling of inactivity, the organization of the board, etc.)
Can't really think of anything here. You guys have been plenty nice and understanding, and the board as a whole is run well I think!

Natalia, Anabel, and Lovino, you guys are all checked in!

(Natalia's name is a play on either the 'Bloody Mary' or 'Beetlejuice' curse, which involves standing in front of your mirror and saying the name 3 times. Supposedly, the spirit would come out of the mirror and murder you XD Anabel's is probably the most risque name here, but all I can imagine is her showering us with Belgian chocolate-flavored kisses (which would make Alfred pout because Hershey makes Kisses XD) And Lovino's name is a tiny nod at my own family...because on Christmas we serve authentic Italian food rather than the traditional ham/turkey/etc. I could totally see Lovi attending a Japanese Christmas party and wanting Italian food <3)

Thank you guys all for your answers! *hugs and loves* We shall be using them to improve things on the board, as well as get our rears working on the new AU (which is going to be Wingtalia, for those that missed the results of the voting!)
