:: How to Apply

NOTE: The Rogue Group is currently in stasis. As such, no applications are being accepted at this time.

To be considered for Rogue Group membership, you must have an active iSoaker.com Forum account as well as a working email account.  You must have made at least one acceptable submission to iSoaker.com before acceptance will be considered (i.e. at least a water blaster review, a battle report, a water story, an article, and/or water-warfare-related pictures, drawings, etc.).  Send a message from the email account used to register your iSoaker.com Forum alias with the subject "Rogue Group Application" (this is to verify your identity).  From there, you will be sent a listing of Rogue Requirements email which needs to be read, understood, and agreed to under a personal oath of honour.  Upon receiving a statement agreeing to the rules, you will then be sent an Acceptance email and your iSoaker.com Forum alias will be upgraded accordingly.

:: Some Common Questions and Concerns

Q. What is special about joining the Rogue Group?
A. Becoming a Rogue Member will grant you access to forums and pages not accessible by the public.  Members will also be involved more directly with various iSoaker.com projects and inner developments.  Rogue Group Members also receive a personalized membership card (electronic format).

Q. If I don't actively promote water warfare in my neighborhood/community, am I still eligible to become a Rogue Member?
A. By becoming a member, it is hoped that you will contribute when time allows to various projects the Rogue Group is undertaking.  By assisting with project development, you will be helping the promotion of water warfare, even if you do not do much water warfare or water war promoting in real life.

Q. I currently run a soaker-related website.  Does this result in a conflict of interest regarding pre-launch information knowledge?  Can I use information/ideas I find out about in the Rogue section for my own site?
A. Someone can definitely be a webmaster at another water-warfare-related website and still be an iSoaker Rogue Member so long as they respect and honour the Rogue Group guidelines.  No ideas or information from the Rogue section should be made public without the prior consent from both the member who may have posted it as well as myself.  If you felt that you had a particular idea before it was posted, but had not implemented it on your own site yet, to avoid questions regarding sincerity, it would be best to discuss in the Rogue section similar plans you intend for your own site and expected launch date of the changes.  If a member is feared to simply be leeching ideas from the Rogue Group, their membership will be terminated.

Q. I am currently 12 (or younger), but really want to be a Rogue Member.  Can I join?
A. If you are 12 (or younger), you should not have an account on the iSoaker.com Forums, thus you cannot be accepted as a Rogue Member.  This is done for your safety.  Please try to understand and try applying once you turn 13.

Q. What is the difference between a Key Member and a Rogue Member?
A. 'Key Members' is a special title I give to those who have done something special for Soakerdom. 'Key Membership' cannot be applied for; it is simply given to those who have done great things for the site and/or Soakerdom in general. 'Rogue Member' is something a little different. To be a 'Rogue Member', one must undergo an application process. However, I am selective on who can become a 'Rogue Member' and just because someone applies does not guarantee acceptance.
