If you check out the DJO website it will tell you all about it and the steps for applying.

I'll just add something that is not stated on the DJO website. The DJO not only looks at the specific requirements that are already stated, but also the writing talent of the individual, and that's what's key in the DJO. Someone can have an excellent career in the Vast Empire for 4-6 months, be active and respectful, but if they can't write to save their life, then there's no point in joining.

This is not to discourage anyone. In fact, I'm encouraging all of you who think you have so-so writing talent to bump up your efforts in honing your skills. I'm just emphasizing the point that the DJO's primary activity (and only activity for the moment) is writing, and if you don't meet DJO standards in that respect, the Dark Council will see that as a major negative.

And a way to improve your writing talents would be to what? READ TONS OF STARWARS BOOKS?

I find that the fact that I've read hundreds and hundreds of books certainly helps me in writing, esspecially when I'm proofreading my stuff (or other people's for that matter). An extensive literary background isn't everything though. A basic grounding in sentence construction and vocabulary usage is also quite helpful.

The Dark Council says "YES" to complete sentences that make sense.

Reading "hundreds" of books isn't necessary, Squall. A few books from good authors will suffice. Reading and observing the writing style does help. I have read six Tom Clancy novels and two other novels from two very good authors (Richard P. Henrich, Sea of Death / Michael DiMercurio, Phoenix Sub Zero). All authors have good story-flow and detail/description.

A good deal of my extensive background is made up of Star Wars novels. While it is not essential, I feel that having read them gives me a firm grounding in the workings of the universe. As far as good authors to read there are at least three for Star Wars novels. Timothy Zahn, Michael Stackpole and Aaron Alliston. Besides Star Wars my recomendation has to go to CS Friedman for In Conquest Born and the Coldfire Trilogy and Stackpole again for Talion: Revenent. If you want to know how to write dry British humor I suggest also Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchet :P

I already stated the length of service that one must have, but I'll say it again: 4-6 months (real months) of active service (I believe it is down to only 4 months now). "Active service" means 4 straight months of active duty, not 2 months of active duty, taking a month off, then 2 more months of active duty.

So, you have 4 months to think about it.

I thought Id save the DJOs time and tell Tesa that: you have to be a member of the Vast Empire for a minimum of 4 months. Then it depends if you will be accepted because they look at your writing.


(Also instead of bringing back dead topics... CREATE A NEW ONE)

I thought it was 6 months time, but basically yea, you have to be here for a while and be good at writing.  Instead bringing back dead topics, why not try reading them first, seeing as a lot of them answer your questions already.

For a board such as the DJO, there are very minimal topics, so creating new ones wouldn't be wise since you'd probably be seeing 10+ "How do you join the Order" topics.

Second, from what I've known thus far, it is a 4 month minimal period. This 4 months doesn't mean a member for 4 months, it means that you must have at least four (4) consecutive months of active duty. Meaning, if you were gone for 3 weeks on vacation, that doesn't count. You need to have been active for 4 consecutive months before you can submit an application.

Now you have the application process. In your application, you need at least 3 letters of recommendation. In the past (and as it is currently), you need letters of recommendation from one of each of the following people:

1 member of the AHC
1 member of the NHC
1 Member of the DC (Dark Council)

Over the years, it's been found that receiving letters of recommendation from your closer-superiors (Platoon commanders, for example) have been a better resource because they're the ones that actually know you and your abilities. But currently, the rules above are the rules that I know that still apply and in effect.

Yes, the DJO mainly looks at your writing as a major aspect in terms of the application process, but we also look at your character's history: your maturity, how have you handled yourself thus far in your career, are you a decent person? You could be the most talented writer in the VE, but we won't take you in if you're an immature turd.

We take a lot of care in choosing who gets accepted into the DJO. The DJO is the elite division of the Vast Empire, so we need to make sure that its members are up to par. For example, the vast majority of Army and Navy story posts can very from 1 paragraph to 4 pages. A typical/average story post that is expected from all DJO members is at least 6 pages (a number that I have come up with from experience in the DJO). Anything less than 6 pages is really considered laziness. Those six pages need to be top quality too. In this case, we're looking at both quality and quantity.

The DJO is both a huge undertaking and incredible honor. The tasks distributed by the DJO are challenging, and only the strong-willed survive. The rest are exiled - the Force eternally stripped from their being.
