Dreddit is a primarily English-speaking EVE Online corporation mostly made up of Reddit.com members and their friends/family. To keep in the theme of Reddit we've got a very laid back community with no real hard and fast rules on how often you play and how you like to play.
Dreddit is the founder of “Test Alliance Please Ignore”, one of the largest alliances in EVE Online.
You will have to create a new application on Auth and submit an in-game application. If in doubt refer to the steps outlined below.
Protip: Adding a note about being a vet to your auth app helps HR and saves many many kittens.
Please note: As a returning member, do not create a new Auth account!
There are multiple methods for joining Dreddit:
With the rise of Alpha accounts, 21 day trials no longer exist. The referral rewards have changed: The account being referred will receive 1 million skill points. If you have multiple accounts, you can use those other accounts to give yourself a referral in order to receive both of the rewards on your main and your alt. If you are starting a new account, you can check the Subreddit sidebar for a referral link. The awards for those upgrade accounts will go to Dreddit.
If you biomass any characters with an open application to Dreddit, it will slow down the proccessing of your application.
Do not apply unless you are ready to be accepted in game, all pleas to wait for you to “get ready” will be ignored.
If you match the requirements above, then follow the instructions below for applying on your own. If you know a current member of Dreddit you could try applying with a recommendation.
Follow the directions for the Auth System, and do the following in Auth:
If you are not yet a reddit member, or your reddit account does not meet the requirements, your application must come with a recommendation from a current member of Dreddit who does fulfill them. You will still need a validated reddit account for this.
Recommendations are linked permanently. If a recommended member is kicked for any reason, the person who recommended them will inherit the blame and may face similar punishment. Non-redditors recommended by a member that is kicked may also be kicked. The Dredditor recommending you needs to currently be in Dreddit for their recommendation to be valid!
To apply with a recommendation:
Former members of Dreddit, or any member corporation in TEST Alliance are eligible to re-apply for membership provided the member left in good standing (you must still apply with your highest SP character).
DO NOT CREATE AN ADDITIONAL AUTH ACCOUNT. If you cannot access your account, please contact us. Creating multiple auth accounts causes many issues.
Note that Eve's API changed from the XML keys to a system called ESI. You'll need to hit the dark grey [EVE | Test Alliance] button on Auth, and log in with each of your CHARACTERS, not once per account. There is a “switch character” dropdown.
To apply as a former member:
If you've been in an alliance that's blue to TEST Alliance for 30 days or longer (you must be active), you now no longer need to have an active Reddit account to join Dreddit. This will be dependent on your in-game activity.
To apply as an ally:
Alt characters are accepted and welcome, just follow the instructions here. Do not apply with your alts before your main character is accepted. If you do so, your alt applications will be withdrawn and you will have to resubmit them if you are accepted.
If you've been a member of another corporation, it is possible that you have roles assigned to you allowing you to access the corporate hangar or do various other corp level actions. You need to drop these roles before you can be accepted into Dreddit. As part of this you are put into a 24 hour cooldown period before you can actually quit the corporation, so its advisable you do this as soon as possible. You don't need to actually leave the corporation. Just drop roles.
Please note that your application may be rejected in case you've failed to drop roles.
Once your application has been accepted, your in game application will also be accepted and you will be notified by email. Upon joining Dreddit, you are required to read the New Member Guide to get up to speed with what is happening in the alliance and any programs or campaigns we're running.
Within 24 hours of being accepted into Dreddit in game, you will be able to use Auth to register and access the other services that Dreddit offers:
Most applications are processed within 48-72 hours but at peak times it can take longer than that. Please wait at least a week before contacting HR or posting on r/evedreddit.
Please read the message sent to you via reddit/displayed in your application on Auth carefully, it states the reason for your rejection.
Services will only work if the EVE API shows your character as a member of Dreddit/TEST. Please wait at least 24h after being accepted in-game before contacting anyone about this. Some users have reported changing the capitalization of the username – reddit's API can be weird.
This can be caused by the reddit API timing out, please wait an hour or two and try again.
Join under other criteria, such as recommendation or SP.
Please ensure that you have authenticated the character by logging in through the ESI link in AUTH
TEST members who wish to join Dreddit need to meet the standard entry requirements. Being a member of a TEST corporation (or other allied corporations) will not allow you to bypass these requirements.
Recommendations can only be added to unsubmitted application. Double check that the application is unsubmitted and NOT submitted. If you are still having problems, contact HR.
If you have any issues, feel free to reach out to us using our public discord channel. Do not ping the entire Dreddit HR team with your issue.
This is the best way to contact us if you are already a member of Dreddit, or are looking to join.
Should you have any questions, the simplest way to get answers is to add a message to your application. There is also usually at least one member of Dreddit HR in the in-game channel “Dreddit Recruitment”, or someone who's able to get in touch with HR for you. If you feel the need to, you can try contacting the HR Drone that has processed your application, their character name should be somewhat similar to the auth username you see on the messages and status changes in your application. In any case someone should be able to help you.
Please note that from time to time we're just trying to play the game. If your convo gets rejected, please don't take it personally. We're probably just busy doing things.
