Apparently the time most people are supposed to apply to the DJO is after 4 months in the Vast Empire, but I want to know if there would be any possible exception to that ever.

I tried to get someone's time cut short, but it didn't happen. It's very rare that I think anyone should be cut short. In fact, I feel that some are coming in too soon. I waited until I was a SGT in the Army, and ranks were a lot slower to get back then. I waited well past my minimum and it was a good thing I did.

Ok, so you are suggesting that we wait past the required four months or that we wait until we are at least the equivalent of a Sergeant in the army?  And another thing, why is there a requirement to get in the VEDJ?  I mean, I know it is like an elite group of Dark Jedi, but why the time requirement?  Why not just a rank or activity requirement?  Someone could be inactive in the VEN for 4 months then say, "hey, I am going to join the VEDJ."

No, I wasn't saying wait until you're SGT. I was saying in almost every case, waiting is a much better idea than joining as soon as possible. I was a better writer by then than I was when I could have joined. Also, by then you know higher ups a bit more. Atrus and I talked a lot before I joined because I had joined the Navy later on and we got to work together on some projects and such. That helped when I put in my application to join because I knew the GM pretty well. So go suck up to Kad. (joking)

"From the Emperor's prison planet?" "They come from somewhere," the Duke said. "But every report on Salusa Secundus says it is a hell world!" "Undoubtedly, but if you were going to raise tough, strong, ferocious men: what environmental conditions would you impose on them?" "—How could you win the loyalty of such men?" Paul asked. "There are proven ways: play on the certain knowledge of their superiority, the length of time needed to enlist, the mystique of secret covenant, and the esprit of suffering. It can be done. It has been done on many worlds in many times."
- "DUNE," by Frank Herbert; 1965
I know it is like an elite group of Dark Jedi, but why the time requirement? The requirement is there because, as Talon rightly stated, waiting is a better idea than joining as soon as possible. Your writing capabilities usually improve during this time, as does your understanding of the club in general. We also utilize this four-to-five month lull as a lengthy trial period – we observe everything you do. You are thus being tested right now along with everyone else. Someone could be inactive in the VEN for 4 months then say, "hey, I am going to join the VEDJ." Hence, young squire, the requirement being "four-to-five months of active service." We ask all of their commanding officers as to their temperament, loyalty and activity during their four-to-five month service. As for their character, we ask both their enemies and their friends. Even if you have served for over two years in the Vast Empire – there is still a major chance you will not be let in. That is just the way the cookie crumbles when dunked in a goblet of sour milk.   ----------------------- "Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole,   I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud.   Under the bludgeonings of chance, My head is bloody, but unbowed. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul." --- William Ernest Henley (1849 – 1903)
