Members of the Something Awful forums and sponsorees should see Joining GoonWaffe 101 for detailed instructions on how to apply to GoonWaffe. Once your application has been accepted through the auth system and you have joined your character(s) to GoonWaffe, see I've Just Joined GoonSwarm, Now What? for your next steps.

After you've registered your characters with us, take a look at I've Just Joined GoonSwarm, Now What?
