I have seen lots of ISD Star members here at forums recently. This made me ask myself who let the dogs out who let the ISD Stars out? I didn't find any official information why ISD Star members started to modify forums all of sudden and it would be nice to hear something official about this issue. I sense there is something big going on since at least two member of ISD Star have appeared here.

This is NOT the ISD you are looking for.

I do not respond to EVE-Mails regarding forum moderation.

Something tells me that in order to bolster the dwindling ranks of the ISD CCL, CCP has granted the ISD STAR some new powers.





Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

With ISD Dorrim Barstorlode took over as Vice Admiral it was actually a very well planned coup. As far as I know he snuck into Ezwals's house kidnapped him. (Not violently ofc) and wrote a fake letter to CCP to step down. This wouldn't have been necessary, but Ezwal stumbled across a 4chan post a while back that lead him to the truth.


The ISD Stars are actually Dorrim's clones and are apart of his clone army that will take over the forums at an undisclosed point.

This is all part of my plan to achieve domination of the ISD and the world!

First stage of the operation has commenced, soon all shall come to know and fear my name! Bwahahahahah!

Or... maybe it's just that ISDs with free time can cross train into other teams. Coincidentally a few STARs had the idea at around the same time...

Is it just a cover for my plan for world domination?
Will anyone ever spell Dorrim's name correctly?

Find out next time on Dragon Ball Z!

The reason you see ISD STAR out and about on the forums is because they've crosstrained from their original team and now have the ability to moderate the forums. They go through the same training CCL does in all aspects of forum moderation/posting. Likewise, CCL members have the option to crosstrain into other ISD divisions, such as Mercury, IC, STAR, and BH.

Also, I'm excited to say that a lot of members of CCL have been coming back out of the woodwork and will be resuming normal posting as they did before. Don't be surprised if you start seeing more of us out and about!

Any chance that this may result it more (sp: any) ISD presensce within the sub forums of other supported languages? Assuming there are some capacities of those STaR members who understand them (and any members at all, for that matter). Like German for example. A Phantom may have more things to handle than moderation on top of all that.

At least that is what ISD STAR's want you to think before they unleash the full takeover plan!!

Recruiting is an ongoing effort, and specific languages are being sought.

Hint: Apply now!

I hear of several players that they did'nt get any response for their application.
I did (in 2010/2011) and got rejected. Blink

I am a little concerned how the ISD network seems to become self-improving, self-replicating and self-aware. It's only a matter of time now until they build a time machine and send one of their mods into the past to keep people like UAE from ever posting...Ugh

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

Unfortunately, over the years some applications have been eaten by the system.
We're actually in the process of re-working the backend to help prevent this.

How do you know this isn't the timeline where we did travel back and have already saved you all from a much worse fate?

I guess that means that anyone who did'nt get a respone in the past should send their application again (fortunately, the data entered into that form appears to remain saved for an account)? If so, I'd notify some potential volunteers.
Or maybe if the Community Team could create a news post or some other form of notification that (all) players are made aware of.

Once everything is sorted out, we'll be pushing recruitment a lot more. There will be details then. :)
