As a follow-up to my post the other day about Nova Knife's dismissal from the DUST 514 Council of Player Management, Nova himself has posted a quite eloquent and heart-felt statement taking responsibility for his actions. It reads, in part:
The simple truth is, I have always been a passionate person. This passion is what led to my being chosen for the CPM in the first place, and is ultimately what led to my "downfall" as a council member. I have never been afraid to step on toes to express my opinions and concerns. My passion sometimes got the better of me, and in expressing myself there were times when I crossed the line. Many times over the last year I have told CCP that the manner in which they communicate is much more important than how often they communicate. A lesson which I had failed to heed myself at times. Inexperience left me ill-prepared to interact with CCP on the level that was expected of us as a council, and because of this my approach to doing so was flawed from the start.Go read the full statement. This is how you apologize and the responses already out from DUST 514 players show much respect the player base had for this man.
Again, it's an incredible shame that this situation has come to such a sorry end.
It's now 13 months and two days since CPM0 took office. Tomorrow, they will exceed the record previously set by CSM7 for CCP player council term length. Presumably, an election is coming. Soon(tm).
