  DJO Application Requirements
August 5, 2007 7:18:17 PM    View the profile of Japheth 
In order to apply for membership in the Vast Empire's Dark Jedi Order, an applicant needs to meet, at minimum, the following requirements:

1) At least 6 months of consecutive active membership in a division.
2) Have a letter of recommendation from at least two people above you in the chain of command, preferably your immediate unit commander and either a wing/platoon commander or a member of your division's HC (Navy members note, I will not give referrals in order to avoid bias).
3) A roughly one-page writing sample. This can be in the form of either a link to a topic in which you have heavily participated or a completely independent writing sample, we don't have a preference. We just want some easy way of taking a look at something you've done.

It may take us a few days to take a look at each applicant (especially since we're anticipating quite a few for the next few weeks). It will take time to read over and evaluate writing samples and to make decisions on who we accept or reject. Keep in mind that, if you are rejected, you may reapply after a two month period, but we will likely have expected you to improve in some respect (which we may or may not tell you).

Good luck, applicants.

I'm already getting some questions, so I'll address a few of them here.

1) What if I was active 6 months, left, and then came back?
We may consider this, case-by-case, depending on a) how long you were gone for, b) why you left, c) how long you've been back, and d) what your activity has been like since returning.

2) What if I switched divisions?
The short answer is that we'd prefer consecutive time in a single division, we may consider this on a case-by-case basis as well. If you think you might qualify, it can't hurt to go ahead and apply (unless you're rejected, in which case you have to wait two months).

A note on referal letters. When you are seeking these letters, please make sure that the unit leader in question knows the following:
1) You are seeking to apply for the DJO.
2) You are to never see the contents of said referal letter
3) Said referal letter should be emailed or Comnet Messaged to myself and Kadann (japheth@vastempire.com, kadann@vastempire.com).
4) The leader in question should include a breif evaluation of your activity, ability, and their opinions on your fitness to join.

Question s'il vous plait (I think I spelt that right).

Does leave count as breaking that active member chain? For example, I just got back from a two week vacation, do I have to start fresh?

As long as you weren't AWOL I would feel confident in saying no, it does not count against your continuous activity.

Angel is correct. Simple leave doesn't count against you, that would be unreasonable. Periods of time spent either AWOL, in the reserves, or retired would.

would gaining Prestigious Medals be able to shorten the time you'd need to be eligible to put in an application for the DJO?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but no. Not as far as I know.
I think your'e LOR is the only thing that could count.
DJO looks for consistent activity and good writing skills. Well those are two of the things they look at when reviewing your application.

There's no way to shorten the time requirement that I know of.

Thank you for answering my questions.

I have another one though, and I figured make one post instead of two.  Does being in the DJO allow you to write about the Force?  Or is writing about the Force unrestricted?  I thought in this era we thought it was a myth (us soldiers and common folk)

I'm not in the DJO, but I know you have to be in it to be able to write about the Force.

People think it's some hokey religion or myth, yes. It doesn't become clear that it is real until someone from the Dark Council inducts you.
