rh_archive has a shiny new banner, courtesy of a challenge at hoodland. The new banner was made by starbuck_a_dale.

rh_archive announces Readers' Recommendations. This is your chance to rec all the great RH fic you've read over the years! Recs are classified by genre and by character.

Changes are afoot at robinhoodbbc (and its affiliated LJ communities), with burntcopper handing the reins to jagnikjen.

rh_press takes this opportunity to welcome the new Sheriff, and thank the outgoing one for services rendered. Your iron fist and incomparable bedside manner will be sorely missed.

The Sheriff is dead. Long live the Sheriff!

NOTE: Yes, rh_press has returned after a very long hiatus. My apologies for the 4 month(!) lapse, but I have been swallowed up by real life. I have decided not to make up for the missed time. I have every desire to do it, but I suffer from a severe lack of time, and to be honest, a lack of an extra pair of hands. I hope to update The Press regularly from now on. Again, my apologies.

This issue covers the period between May 1, 2011 and May 8, 2011.
