Due to lack of interest, and discovering a more active Harry Potter land community with full teams, we maintainers have decided to close this community. As of today, July 21 2010, all subcommunities are closed. The main community will remain open for a week for the few members we have to see this announcement.

We thank all of you who joined us, and we're sorry we weren't able to get off the ground. However, we'd like to suggest hpotterverse for your HP Land Comm needs!

Love,
joykilldrama and omgitsmuggy

COMMUNITY RULES

1. No TYP1NG LYKE tHiS. We want to keep this community mature and comprehensible. Swearing is allowed in the writing section (in your piece) and in some discussions, as long as it is not every other word. We are all over 13 (per LJ rules) so we all know that swearing happens. However, please keep it to a minimum if you must swear.

2. Do not bash other members. While this community is competition based, we would like to keep a friendly rivalry going with all the teams. This is a zero tolerance rule. If you get caught, you will be kicked. Consider this your warning.

3. Do not bash the characters, couples, or anything else in the show. You may state an opinion such as "Spencer is a little too uptight for my taste," but you may not bash. An example of bashing is: "Oh god I friggin hate Spencer. She's a little biyatch. Hanna is so much cooler."

4. Every member must participate in something at least once a week. If you find yourself unable to participate for a week, please tell your communities mod. We do understand that real life happens and we do not expect to be the only thing in your life. Especially since we know a lot of people in Land communities are in more than one.

5. You must be over 13 to join this community. That is LJ's rule, not mine.

6. Your journal must be over a month old and show signs of use. This includes communities, friends, stuff like that. We just want to see that you have some knowledge on how LJ is run.

7. As we are based on both books and a tv show, we ask that you keep spoilers to a minimum. You cannot use anything from an episode until a week after it has aired (unless they are stills of just a character with nothing incriminating) or from a book that has not been out for more than two weeks.

WHAT GOES ON

1. Games. This can be anything from luck games to word finds and everything in between.

2. Graphics. Our weekly graphics challenges can range from icons to wallpapers and posters.

3. Writing. Writing challenges are anything from drabbles, haikus and longer stories.

4. Gifts. We have an entire community devoted to gift-giving.

5. Social. We love to have discussions on various topics. We also have in-house team activities, parties and team bonding.

POINTS

Points are awarded to all of those who participate in a challenge and sometimes even in discussions. Winners will be rewarded additional points as stated in the challenge itself. Team standings are always posted in the sidebar of the main community.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you around.

Borrowed and edited from outoftime and likealight at jjverse.

WHAT IS HP_LAND?
hp_land is a challenge community inspired by whedonland and jjverse. There are four teams: Team Gryffindor, Team Slytherin, Team Ravenclaw, and Team Hufflepuff. Once sorted onto a team you begin competing in different challenges - some art based, fic based, trivia based, luck based, etc.

I JOINED, NOW WHAT DO I DO?
After applying for a team and accepting the invite to your team's community take a moment to browse your team's community. Should there be an introduction post, introduce yourself to your team. If you're ready to join in on challenges right away, located in the sidebar you will always find the Open Challenges list to see what challenges are currently running.

While not required, it is a good idea to track hp_land and/or your team community so you are able to be notified via e-mail when a new post goes up.

WHAT IS A TOURNAMENT?
A play on words and terms to stand for the current round. A "tournament" last for 3 months. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament wins!

HOW DO I ENTER A CHALLENGE?

To enter a challenge, unless otherwise directed (directions are always provided with each challenge) leave a comment with your entry at the Challenge Post. Often, comments are screened so you may not see any other entries.

WHAT ARE THE EXPECTATIONS OF ME?
You are encouraged to enter any and all challenges you can. At the bare minimum though, you should enter at least one challenge every two weeks. Should you be inactive for this period of time (you will receive a PM prior) you will be removed from your team's community. You are more than welcome to re-apply however once you have more free time on your hands. We do understand that life happens, and for that reason, we do have a hiatus post for your convenience. If you know you're going away, please post.

WHAT ARE TAG BANNERS?
Once you're placed on a team you are encouraged to make a signature banner, or request someone on your team to make one for you. The maximum size is 300x150 and must include your team name as well as your name or username.

Tag banners may be used in every challenge unless otherwise stated as you receive an extra point every time you use it. However, it must be posted the first time and not edited in after.

WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT A PARTICULAR CHALLENGE?

At the first comment to every challenge, we always leave a Questions thread. Ask any questions there and we will get back to you within a day. We disable comments at the Challenge posts, so if your ask your question elsewhere in the thread, there is a very good chance we will not see it. If your question is time sensitive, please see the next topic...


HOW DO I GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU IF I HAVE A GENERAL QUESTION/PROBLEM/SUGGESTION/NEED YOUR HELP ASAP?

If you have a General Question or Problem, please leave a comment at the Page a Mod post. Your comment will be screened in case your comment is sensitive. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

AM I ALLOWED TO POST AT HP_LAND? HOW ABOUT IN MY TEAM'S COMMUNITY?

The only person who may post at hp_land are the community maintainers, joykilldrama and omgitsmuggy. However, anyone can post at your team's community - in fact, we welcome it! If you feel like a reminder should go up, or if you have fandom-related news, or if you want to share something, etc., go right ahead!

I AM NOT THE BEST WRITER / GRAPHICS PERSON. DOES THAT MATTER?

Not at all! While there is occasionally voting, participation is what's most important! It's the effort that counts most, so jump right in! You'll find most people here are just "winging it" :)

WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE TO LEAVE THE COMPETITION OR GO ON HIATUS?
Should you have to leave the competition for any reason please head over to the Leave/Hiatus post and drop a line. If you leave you are free to rejoin at anytime, although you might have to wait to get back on your team if it is full. If can only go on hiatus for a month.

WHAT'S hpl_greathall?
hpl_greathall is a social community that was made up for the members of hp_land. Members are able to mingle with each other. Occasionally there may be challenges in which you are to post your entries as a new post to that community versus via comments as is usual. You will be invited to join hpl_greathall when you are accepted to the community.
