What is RHLand?
We are an interactive challenge community based off of the original landcomm whedonland and other landcomms such as scifiland. It is a sister site to Raising Hell and E2RH

What fandoms are used here?
Only Dark Angel. This landcomm is centred around James Cameron's TV series 'Dark Angel' although information from the spin-off books (Before The Dawn, Skin Game, After The Dark and The Eyes Only Dossier) is also accepted.

How do I join?
You can join by heading over to the sign-up post and reading through it. You will be directed to the FAQ and the Rules posts so you may want to read this first before heading over there.

How do I enter a challenge?
Instructions for each challenge will be in the challenge post. For some challenges you may need to post in your journal and just provide a link or you may be required to post directly to the challenge thread. Accounts for Photobucket/Image Shack/Tiny Pic are essential if you are intending on entering any of the graphics challenges.

How often do I need to enter challenges?
You need to enter at least half of the challenges in each War. There is a spreadsheet available which details your contribution and points. If you are unable to compete in a set number of challenges due to absence or illness, please let us know ASAP at the Absence or Leaving? post as any member not pulling their weight will unfortunately be removed from the team to allow in a new member.

I have a question...
You can either ask your Team Leader directly or one of the mods at the Contact Mods post. All posts here are initially screened for privacy.

I am not very good at graphics/fics/vids...
The graphic/fic/vid challenges all have varying degrees of difficulty, though we try not to make any so difficult that only select members can compete. We want everyone to compete so most challenges are engineered to allow that. If you are initially unsure about them, there are a range of skill or chance based challenges that may be easier for you to begin with although we hope you will be able to compete in everything.

I need to leave the community...
We are very sad when people need to pull out for various reasons but we understand that Real Life (RL) takes precedence over our online hobbies. There is an Absence or Leaving? post that you can go to which allows us to keep track of where the members are at. Just follow the instructions there and good luck.

Rules are a necessary evil, even in something that is fun, as they keep everything running smoothly for all members if they are adhered to. Please note the following rules and abide by them.

1. Any member not adhering to these rules will be given TWO warnings. Third warning is an automatic dismissal as is anything which is excessive.

2. No swearing. There are members of various ages, ethnicities, religions, etc here so please keep a lid on those unsavoury words so we can be inclusive of everyone and create an environment enjoyable to all.

3. No bashing or flaming. These will not be tolerated. It is a certainty that there will be people who prefer one character or pairing over others but everyone is allowed their opinion just as you are allowed yours.

4. Participation is key therefore you must compete in at least half of the challenges of each War. A spreadsheet is available in each team and RHLand with the stats so please keep an eye on this to make sure you are not missing too many challenges.

5. You are only allowed to switch teams once per War and all of these must be submitted to the mods in the Contact Mods post. Just because you have asked to switch teams does not automatically mean that you will be placed on another team. Things such as numbers come into play.

6. Don't forget to add your team name to your submissions so that you will get the alloted points.

7. Do not give anyone (either your team or other team members) the answers to challenges. This will result in points being deducted from your team. All of the challenges are for fun and spoiling the challenges is not a way to have fun.

8. Promoting other landcomms here is allowed but spamming is not. This is on a purely first come, first served basis so if someone else has already posted one, please do not fill up the community with them.

9. Points are allocated for each challenge and the challenge description will tell you exactly how many points each is worth. There are added points for voting and for referral of members as there is also ten points for every new member to a team.

10. HAVE FUN!!! This is the most important rule!
