This is entirely my opinion of how it works, but I'd like to think that I have an informed opinion having voted for Private members for a year and a half now ;)
 
Part 1: Applying for Private! 
First of all, do you meet these requirements to apply?

  • 1,000+ posts
  • An account age of at least one year
  • Being able and having time to fill out an application 

Now for the application process. This might seem scary at first, but it is actually easier than what most people think. As long as you have well thought out answers, your application is good. This means no lazy one sentence responses, no entirely joke applications (light humor here and there is appreciated though). Basically, if you're application shows you care about this community, then you're in a really good spot!
 
Part 2: Increase your chances of getting voted in!
The application is only one part of what gets judged when we vote on prospective Private members. We are voting on the ENTIRE person, not just one single thing. Contributions, constructive posts, and length of activity all matter! The one issue that is most important is attitude towards others, or what I like to summarize as don't be a dickhead and try to be helpful. If you are well liked by the upper ranks, then you will more likely be voted in. If you are not well liked, then good luck* :p
 
*Note: It's still very possible to get in even if you're not well liked by the upper rank if your other contributions make up for it. When I was applying, I was not well liked, BUT I steadily increased my contributions so I eventually got in.
 
Part 3: Keeping your new shiny private rank! 
Make at least one post a month. If you must take a hiatus, let the mods know and/or post here. This is non-negotiable, people have been demoted for not following these easy steps!
 
Final words: The Private rank is exactly that: private. The private subforum is a place where people post sensitive personal information, so it is rather significant to us. Keep this in mind, and keep trying if you don't get in at first! For me, I got rejected three times, and finally got in the fourth. Hopefully this demystifies the process! 
 
Now go apply!  :yahoo:  :yahoo:  :yahoo:

Corollary: To get into Retired, you must do the opposite of everything here.

Where we post sensitive information...like that poll you took. In the private section, which is restricted to private+ members...(Don't worry, I'm just joking)

Let me just say this, people will always vote how they want, no matter any of these things. So while you may do some of these, please remember that it is not a guarantee you will get in. These are simply guidelines. If you do these, but every single one of us hates you (or a very large number of us)..I'd say it's unlikely you're going to get in. 

 

Vote me in please.

No.

If you post a well thought out answer, I will automatically decide you're a moron in need of a life/friends/hobbies and vote no to save you from yourself.

I also wouldn't have voted in that poll if I'd known the results would be posted here.

What you actually saw was 2 Trumps making out passionately behind a dumpster, you didn't see anything but that.

That's better and as a result I'm using it instead. :p

Being relevant isn't something we look for in potential Private members. In fact, I positively encourage randomness.

Different meaning, positively isn't just an antonym of negatively. ;)
