Oh, and just for the hell of it, I created a little "oath of enlistment" too. Note: you do not have to quote it to enlist, but if you want an easy first point, it's a start. Also, any member returning from any previous version shall quote the original oath, not the oath of re-enlistment if they so choose.
Note to new recruits: If you wish to join the LPAR, all you have to do is submit a post stating that you wish to join. That is all. You do not have to quote the oath, though it is an easy first point if you do.
The Oath of Enlistment for the Linkin Park Army
I [state your name -- screen or real] do solemly swear (or affirm) that I will support Linkin Park and defend the ass of Chester Charles Bennington against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegance to the same, and that I will obey the orders of Officers appointed over me, in accordance to the regulations set before me. So help me God[/quote]
Alternate Oath of Enlistment:
I [state your name] do solemly swear that I will support Linkin Park and defend the asses of Chester Charles Bennington,Michael Kenji Shinoda, Joesph Hahn, Bradford Philip Delson, Robert Gregory Bourdon and David Michael Farrell (aka: Phoenix) against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegance to the same, and that I will obey the orders of Officers appointed over me, in accordance to the regulations set before me. So help me God
(Sidenote: I still personally like mine better, cause Chaz's ass is the only one that was attacked, thus is the only one really needing defending...but the other one's cool too...thanx Star, oh, I edited yours a little too...adding the middle names of the others....only fair, I say CCB, I gotta say all the others too :D )
[Sidenote 2: If you do not wish to say "swear" you may subsitute the word "affirm" or something similar to fit your preferance. Also, if you do not wish to say "So help me God" you may subsitute your deity of choice or just omit this line.]
I'll figure out a new way to do the promotion thing..... and I'm also thinkin of just doing the group version of the LPAR guys, and not this thread...... And I'm workin on changin things a bit.... more unified theme :) And new Oath of Enlistment too :) *hint....PixxelKorp is goin down*

UPDATED: *** work in progress ***
UPDATE: (1 March 2011): As not too many people seem to be interested in the main site discussion thread, I am going to be deleting that thread and just leaving the LPAR group up. If you guys want to keep the LPAR going, please post! [If no new activity happens soon, I will be forced to delete the group :(]
