Hey all! :)

First of all- thank you guys for signing up! <3
We're really thrilled about this community, that was just a random idea that popped into our minds and we decided to go for it :P

Before we can start with the challenges, we need a few more people to sign up.
Since we don't know many Rafters fans, we'd like to ask you if you can help us promoting the community.
Feel free to promote it on your journals, twitter, tumblr, or just tell your friends if they're also Rafters fans.

You can use the banner I made here if you need one, or make one of your own.

Thanks again, and we're crossing fingers that we will be able to start soon! :)

Laura & Adi.

 Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a Landcomm?

The term "Landcomm" refers to an interactive challenge community for fans of chosen fandom(s) where members are split into teams and are presented with a variety of challenges (games, writings, fanart, etc.) that are to be completed by the specified deadline. For each challenge you participate in, you will receive points, which are accumulated into your team's points. At the end of each round, the team with the most points is named the winners!

2. Do I need to have a LiveJournal account to join?

Yes. Luckily, signing up is free and easy. Simply go to the home page and click "Create an Account". The rest is pretty straight forward.

3. Where should I submit my entry to the challenge?

In a comment to the challenge post, unless otherwise stated in the rules.

4. What is a round of pimping?

This is when there is a Pimp!Task in which members receive points for promoting the community ("pimping")

5. What if I can't do a challenge?

Then you just don't do it. You are only required to do at least one challenge every two weeks, this is because we know you have lives! 

6. Can I submit something old I've made?

No, you cannot. Anything submitted must be made specifically for the challenge/task. The entry must be new and kept secret until the challenge results have been posted.

7. Can I share my entry with other people?

Yes, you can, but not until after the challenge/voting is over (unless otherwise stated in the instructions).

8. Can I submit other people's work?

No. Unless it is a collaborative challenge, or the instructions state otherwise.

9. Can I vote for my own entry?

No. If this were allowed, everyone would vote for themselves and no one would win.

10. What is a sig? What are the regulations for Signature Banners?

Sig is short form for Signature Banner. Go here for more information.

11. I have a problem/question. What do I do?

Contact a mod/team leader. Or comment here.

After you have been assigned a team, you are required to make your intro post and make yourself a signature banner (AKA sig)! This post will explain signature banner rules.
  1. Your sig must have your username on it
  2. Your team name must be on it
  3. Must not be larger than 300x150 pixels
  4. If you cannot make your own sig, you may ask a mod or another member of your team, and if you are lucky, they will make you one.
Here are example signature banners (made for castleland


Keep in mind that for this comm, the teams are BigBlueEwes & WallaWincha.

1. No swearing. We want this to be a friendly environment for all members ;)
2. No bashing. Characters, actors, teams, members - do not bash any of them, please. You are entitled to your own opinions but harsh opinions must be kept out of our community.
3. You must participate in at least one challenge every two weeks. Inactive members will be cut. You will receive notices/warnings before you are cut, so if you have a really good reason for being inactive, let us know. If you've been cut and would like to rejoin, you will have to reapply.  Hiatus/breaks may be given if asked, but you must PM a mod if you need one.
4. No spam. We do not accept pimp posts for other comms, etc. 
5. Read the challenge rules. In order to keep the community rules brief, we will have extra rules for each challenge.
6. In the "Anything Else" category of your application to join, please write one of your favourite Packed to the Rafters couples. (ex. Jake/Rachel or Dave/Julie, etc.) Do not use the same as the person who applied before you or I will know you haven't read the rules!

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask ;)


1. Games: These can be anything from word finds to luck games. Game challenges are easy to participate in, so if you're pressed for time, join in on a game challenge ;)

3. Graphics: Icons, wallpapers, photomanipulations, etc. (You may need a program such as photoshop)
