Hi there DNSBLACK.

I have read your initial post and it has left me wondering. You repeat a few times how you are essentially the non-bloc candidate. Then furthermore as far as what you do in eve you write "we strive to do everything".

This essentially tells me nothing. After reading that I have no real idea what you do in eve, where your interests lie or what aspects of the game you get passionate about.

Now about that passionate part. Not that many months ago you got rather passionate about the situation with SOMER blink. Now I'm not here to dredge that all up, the issue itself is not that important. But the actions you took, the things you said. In hindsight do you think you handled that well? Was that an example of DNSBLACK getting serious about an issue?

Let me end this post by saying that these are not intended as critiques, but simply honest questions to find out more about what you stand for, and what kind of person you are.

My only concern about DNSBlack is his enthusiasm. He has too much. Also, if elected, the members of CSM 9 shuold *under no circumstances* give their phone numbers to DNSBlack. I have heard the horror stories.

There is a simple solution to this: you set up a "900" number.

I mean, for $5/minute, I'd even listen to you, Josh.

Yeah, good idea, but too bad you didn't use it. Half of those horror stories were from you!

God help us all if he finds Twitter Shocked. Probably rival Xander for #daily tweets.

Its not easy to earn the respect of the EVE bitter vet community such as Brad has with his energy and enthusiasm, I cant wait for the new players to see him in action for this coming CSM!

If anyone read my post they would have somewhat of a clue on what DNSBlack is running on.

DNSBLACK is a great Candidate for CSM9, if you ask anyone that knows him, he is all about creating content for the EvE player whether friend or foe. He understands the perspective of the EvE player and is well capable of putting thoughts into words and explaining and discussing the ideas, wants, or dislikes that players deal with and discuss everyday.

I completely support DNSBLACK, he is the man for the job. Vote DNSBLACK for CSM9

Do you still believe throwing a tantrum publicly is the best way to resolve issues with CCP?

Nothing puts a smile across my face more than imagining DNSBlack in a CCP conference room, giving the devs a piece of his mind, and reminding everyone in the room why we're all here and why we all play this game.


This is the reason why I have my doubts regarding DNSBLACK. There are ways of getting your point across without "giving the devs a piece of your mind". This way of communication is going to be aimed at people who are voluntarily spending their time to listen to him. Getting in their face and "laying down the law" is only going to cause them all to ignore him, and potentially ignore the rest of the CSM too.

The past few years have seen CCP taking the CSM and subsequently the players, more seriously than ever before. Would DNSBLACK diving in feet first and and giving CCP a piece of his mind undo all of this progress?
Affirmative.

After having the honor of working with Black a few times back in my TISF days, and then again in the lowsec days when he kindly helped me get our alliance off the ground, I would count that as being enough to endorse his running for CSM.
However, after then having the pleasure of finally meeting him last year at Fanfest after his brilliant "Coaching them up" talk with my former CEO Exooki, I cannot give enough praise to DNS, and he totally deserves to be elected for the CSM

He has my vote, and I believe the vote of our entire alliance for what it is worth. Bravo good sir - looking forward to seeing you in the CSM next year

Confirming that Black calls my cell phone on occasion just to ask how I am doing. That being said I fully support Black's candidacy, I have more faith in him than I will our WH candidates.

While "harsher" methods to get points across may earn people frownie points, we have things like the Jita riots around Incarna that may suggest it may be a viable measure at times.

My understanding (and I could be wrong here) is that the vast majority of the protests that took part during the Incarna Summer of Rage were composed of shouting on the forums, shooting at a monument, unsubbing or some combination thereof. None of which actively breaks the EULA.

I'm on the fence about DNSBlack over exactly this issue. I eagerly await his response to the questions raised in this thread as to how he dealt with the Somer situation from last year. Once I hear that, I feel I'll be able to make a better decision on him one way or the other.

My experience with Brad leads me to believe that this is not something you should be concerned about. He knows the right way to argue in both Bar and Boardroom.

Given that I have spent the last 4 years of my EVE career helping to build the CSM into an effective organization, it would be irresponsible of me to endorse a candidate -- however much I liked him or her personally -- if I thought there was any real chance that they would damage it.

I know you haven't known him as long as I have, given that you're less than two weeks old, but it is my firm belief that a CSM9 with DNSBLACK as a member will continue the process of making CSM even more effective. That is why I encouraged him to run, and why I encourage you to support him.

Let me tell you about alts... Oh hold on... You've been playing for 6 years and you don't know about alts? Shocked

You definitely need a break from CSM duties and get back to playing as it appears you're lacking knowledge on major aspects of EvE.
