Seriously, if you're thinking about changing Orders, read this. Since the time that the Brotherhood split from our alliance with the Emperor's Hammer, the way we think, and act has been undergoing changes. Previously, each Order was "restricted" to participating in a certain way; that is, Sith were pilots, Obelisk were ground-pounders, Krath were writers. Or, Sith (TIE, XvT, XWA), Obelisk (JK, JO, JA), Krath (writing). This no longer applies and strictly. Some people adhere to this, others do not. Those who adhere to this do so of their own accord; you do not have to have flight games to be Sith, write to be Krath, etc.
There are those who would prefer to return to this mode of action. Sime people believe that it is easier, and makes more sense to have the DB with "Order Restrictions." As the DB has evolved, Orders have meant different things. I know several people who were here back before there were Clans, or even Houses before them. Some of these people remember when Sith were members who had memberships in both the Brotherhood and the Emperor's Hammer; the Krath were the members who were simply "DB-exclusive."
The point of all this is, the DB is still undergoing changes, both structurally and cosmetically. So many people still see references to the Sith needing to have flying games, and don't want to be "pilots." I still see Order change requests of people wanting to "Play Jedi [whatever]," and "don't want to be a pilot, or write about that." No matter how many times I've said this, or tried to respond to these kinds of transfer requests, I still see them. I'd ask for people, especially Envoys, and those whose job it is to familiarize members with how we do stuff, to inform people of this.
Honestly, I can't get to every member, and say, "Hey, guess what. This is how it is." So, again, especially to the Envoys who help new members adjust, and to leaders in general, a little help? Thanks much.
