"Roleplay Roulette," where everyone goes on Tohla and RPs as Hetalia characters until they either find each other or the strangers disconnect them, and then post the conversations on the main comm.
Recently, error messages have been popping up in the middle of conversations. It has no negative effect on the conversation aside from being annoying, and they are now called socks because of the strange code, '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock'.
Expanded to the Curse of the Page Seme: whoever does not what to be Page Seme (aka. commenting at the top of the page), will invariably be so.
"This will seme."/"This will uke."Explanation A reference to the comments that appear at the beginning or end of each page, corresponding to Yaoi terms Seme and Uke. A fan who expects their comment to wind up in either of these positions may say this. It doesn't always work.
"WE HAVE HIT CODE X. I REPEAT, WE HAVE HIT CODE X." During one of the updates, a fan began yelling out Code (color) at regular intervals to measure the HST. This caught on, and has been used to synchronize flipping. The codes are as follows:
After 2 hours of waiting, the fandom went in Code Oblivion.... resulting in much panic and worry about Hima-Papa
At about 4 hours of waiting it was then dubbed Code Steve
A really long incident of HST in which Hima did not update for a full week (leading some to speculate the event was in fact over) was called both "Code IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!" (at 50 hours) "Code WE'RE OUT OF PASTA!" (100 hours), "Code That F*cking Island" and more...

Calls To Attract Wild Nations, developed during a particularly long HST storm.

I'M CLAM, I'M CLAM!
During the HST storm just before the Australia update, the fans were... unnaturally calm (it's suspected that they wore themselves out during the last HST storm). A fan accidentally typed "clam" instead of "calm," and now everyone is forever a clam.
Panda Buddha will always be drinking her cocoa and trying to clam everyone down.
Livejournal X Tumblr is the new OTP
Hima has successfully torn our emotions apart.
All the nation ladies, all the nation ladies.
Sobbing because ACE family.
The curse of Thread 13 - the fans used up a whole thread of comments without a single update. Sure enough, not 10 minutes into the next thread, AFTER OVER FOUR HOURS OF WAITING IN THREAD 13, there was an update. Specifically, as soon as everyone jumped over to Thread 14.
During the second code purple, fans used a lot of Slogan Maker.
On Thread 16, our very own Meme master VentusBDaPlayer started a campaign of Honk/Spam for the pairing of Hong Kong and Iceland. It worked, and the fandom banded together to spam the comments thread with HongxIce. At this point in time campaign hasn't brought forth any HongxIce so far, but the immediate update after the campaign did bring out a strip featuring Hong Kong!
Hetaslang: COR-BLIMEY = the new Hetalia Swear
Created when Google translated one of Italy's lines as 'Cor-Blimey'. The fans went mad, declaring it THE NEW THING!
Thread 18 was "The Most American Thread", due to a lot of picspamming America.
Darth Thread!, due to picspamming Darth Vader in several situations.
The Plot Bunny/Bunnyman, and the ensuing Bunnybath. Put simply, an update included a terrifying rabbit suit, fans began speculating on its importance/identity/evilness, and a wave of pictures of other terrifying bunnies ensued.
Thread 31 is the almighty Headcount thread, where the fans passed the time by creating polls of common interests between each other.
Thread 32 had the massive food!spam, where fans posted pictures of delicious looking food, making many a fans hungry whilst in Code Black.
Thread 33 is Serverus Thread, due to the large amount of Snape Spam.
China's trunks are going to explode... Explanation Himaruya said the event would end by the 8th of January, or else China's "trunks" would explode. The 8th of January rapidly approached without an end, and...
The Same Flag Club (and Poland)Explanation Monaco, Indonesia and Hesse (a state of Germany who appeared in a strip. Note Indonesia hasn't appeared yet) all share the same flag, and hence have formed a club. Poland has the same flag but upside down, so he can join if he remains upside down.
Thread 43 is the language and accent thread, where fans have been talking about what languages they can speak and their accents and the differences.
Spain, the Nordics and... Flagland battled for dominace over thread 49 in a glorious war of picspamming.
Thread 52 started off as the 'Culture Sharing Thread', but quickly turned into 'You Know You're Hetalian When ______' frenzy. A list of examples can be found here

There was a big goal that everyone wanted to reach thread 69 on Valentine's day in Japan. It failed, but when thread 69 came, there were lots of innuendos
