So, you're seeking to join a fraternity at XDA College, though you tried to visit the 'prestigious' Omega Theta Pi House's (un)invitational party but were not welcomed there. So you end up next door at Chi Delta Alpha House, where we will make our "legacy", and If we find you urinating outside the fraternity house, we may still allow you to pledge -as we need the dues. The dean of the College wants to remove the ΧΔΑ fraternity from campus due to repeated conduct violations and low academic standing. Since we are already on probation, he put the Chi Delta Alphas on something he calls "double secret probation" and orders have been put in place to rid the Chi Delta Alphas permanently.

So, to cheer ourselves up, the Chi Deltas Alphas have organized a toga party; however, Otis Day and the Knights will not performing "Shout". Occasionally, to take our minds off our troubles, we may take the occasional road trip and pick up girls, stopping in at roadhouses, and we may flee after being intimidated and subsequently receiving damages to our borrowed car. Though the draft boards have been notified of our eligibility, our midterm grades are so poor that we have been expelled. When I spoke to the dean about this, I ended up vomiting on him. Anyways, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?! Hell no it wasn't. Time to stage a rogue parade and wreak havoc on the annual homecoming parade...​

Pledging to Chi Delta Alpha Fraternity:

A big part of pledging is becoming familiar with the fraternity: learning about every single member, bonding with pledges, and learning about the founding members, the history of the fraternity. The other big part of pledging is proving oneself worthy of being made a brother. Will the pledge uphold the ideals of the fraternity? Will he be someone they're proud to call a brother? Will they be willing and able to meet the requirements set forth by the governing committee during their pledging period?

The pledges will undergo exercises of loyalty and trust. Pledges and brothers may also have a pledge project they work on together. If the brothers feel a pledge has completed his pledge education to their satisfaction, he can be initiated into the brotherhood. The actual initiation ceremony is shrouded in mystery. It may take several hours and involve chanting, robes, blindfolds and candlelight. The pledge will be initiated into the secrets of the fraternity, from secret mottoes and grips (handshakes) to passwords and the meanings behind rituals. He will be sworn to secrecy.​

Pledge Criteria:

  • Pledges will be expected to change your current avatar, or if you do not currently have an avatar uploaded, to this.
  • Pledges will be expected to also add this line to your forum signature, and be used for every post made here and in other forums/sub-forums: "Sent from my muffin" (or a variant of)
  • Pledges must address every official member as "Sir", until you have been initiated into the fraternity and have become official members, at which time you will be referred to as "Brother".
  • Pledges will be expected be active within the frat house thread, and show respect to the founders, official members, and adhere to the rules of XDA as a whole.
  • *Pledges will be expected to conduct themselves herein and elsewhere in accordance to the fundamental ideals that this Fraternity was founded upon. Any Pledge/Member/etc. who is found to be acting in defiance of this rule will be reprimanded, reported, suspended, and/or dishonorably discharged from the Fraternity.
  • Pledges will be expected to rate this Frat House thread as being 5 stars -"excellent"- because, well... it is.
  • Pledges will be asked to complete a 'task of trust', which may include something completely ridiculous or slightly embarrassing which will be uploaded to our YouTube Channel and posted here as well.

Pledges Should Be Expected To Follow The Pledge Requirements For Two Weeks, After Which Time They Can Be Initiated Into Chi Delta Alpha And Become Official Charter Members As Well As Eligibility To Be Voted Into Fraternity Officer Positions, Along With Having Their Names (And Nicknames Given) Added To The OP, Becoming Full-Fledged Brothers Of Chi Delta Alpha.

Current Pledges: (Nicknames Are Subject To Change)

Probationary List (These Individuals Are On Evaluation To Determine Their Ability To Pledge):

Former Members & Discharged Members:

Unofficial Members Of Chi Delta Alpha ΧΔΑ Fraternity:

I trust that anyone who enters the brotherhood of Chi Delta Alpha Fraternity understands the imperitive need for respect, understanding of our ethos set forth, our reputation seen by others throughout XDA, and the desire to build quality, long lasting friendships with others. Remember, this is all for fun, to get to know others, and for friends made elsewhere to have a place to enjoy each other's company. Let's not allow things to get out of control, so be respectful, be considerate.​

To any prospective pledge:

Your decision to join the brotherhood of the Chi Delta Alpha ΧΔΑ Fraternity, and subsequent initiation to the fraternity requires you to do a few simple things. First, changing your avatar and forum signature for two weeks as listed in the pledge requirements in the OP, and a 'task of trust' to be completed at some stage during your pledge period.

In doing these few things, you, as a pledge to the Chi Delta Alpha ΧΔΑ Fraternity, will help is spread the word throughout all of xda as a whole, and will gain us respect, interest, and growth.

I expect only great things to come from this initiative, and know that with the combined efforts of these worthy, exceptionally willing, and undoubtedly devout members of xda developers, we will become an integral part of the members to interact, gain friendships, and establish a community that is second to none.

I welcome all to pledge, become members, and be an active function in the social development of both the individual, and
