Step 1: Make sure you have your birthdate or an age statment of some sort visible in your userinfo. (You can take it off after you're approved for membership, if you want.) If you want to keep your birthdate private, just stick something that says "I am over 18/I am legal to read NC-17 materials" or something like that in your profile. If you don't want to do that, drop me an email at humanhosepipe at gmail dot com and tell me your username and that you're of age!
Step 2: Submit a membership request by joining the community, and provided I either get an email or can see an age statement in your LJ userinfo, I'll approve you! Easy peasy!
IF I'M NOT GIVEN AN AGE STATEMENT OF SOME KIND, I'LL CRUELLY IGNORE YOUR REQUEST TO JOIN. SORRY! THEM'S THE BREAKS!
