Would just like to add my thanks for all Del has done.

 

Many of my toons and their alts have been frequent visitors to RvB since its early days, but they never stayed long.

This one however has been here since Dec 2011. That is largely due to how RvB has grown and evolved from a neat but limited concept to something more lasting and worthwhile.

 

So well piloted Skipper, a job very well done for your part in that.

 

The other part is on a more personal level, but again shows true leadership, so many thanks for all the words of encouragement you have given over the years. It really does mean a lot.

 

Enjoy your new ventures.

Wait, What?

Del is cutting the cord?

Holy S*it this is big news.

Del, you sir, are the reason that we exist.

 

Thank you.

Blimey. Hard to imagine things without Del, he was always a constant in the ever changing face of RvB. I joined RvB nearly four years ago and my first encounter with Del was in a big fight we had. We all started off in frigates and eventually ended up battleships. Those kind of fights used to happen quite regularly when he was around. He used to fly Ravens when everyone else was saying they were shit lol. Good times.

 

Even though I kept myself to myself most of the time, he always helped with any queries or problems I had. He was generous too - Ages ago I remember logging in and finding an Apoc had been contracted to me by him. I wasn't used to this kind of generous behaviour at that point in my Eve career, so I messaged him asking if it was maybe a mistake and he simply said said 'nope'. The funny thing is that the Apoc in question is still in my hangar, having survived wars and battles and being on several killmails. I call it my Delpoc and it's still there because Del gave it to me.

 

So anyway, I just want to say that Del has been a fantastic leader and someone I have always respected. I've not always agreed with him over certain things, but they weren't things to lose any sleep over either. Leadership in RvB is often a thankless task and to do something like running an organisation this size for this long is something to be proud of. The man deserves a well earned rest after all these years!! 

 

Good luck to you Del and fly safe o7

Just coming back to Eve after taking a break to deal with pretty crappy real-life things. As soon as I came back I was greeted by old friends.

RvB, and the friends I've made here and all the fun and drunken 'splosions is one thing that keeps bringing me back to this god-forsaken universe and it wouldn't be there and in the healthy state it is without Del.

Thanks for everything mate and good luck.

Del, 

 

Although I've been inactive for over a year now (And will not be active again anytime soon - sorry :P) I have to at least say thank you! 

What you created allowed me 2-3 years of great fun when I was here, you allowed me to hold positions and responsibilities in RvB - which gave me experience that i find useful in RL to this day - for that I must thank you. 

 

Hell - you even put up with my friendship with Shen and Hurrdurr in the 'old' days (such as they were), what more could anyone have asked for. Not once in my multiple comings and goings has Del not been part of what makes RvB tick - He's been doing this longer then most people can hold RL jobs for. 

 

Kudo's to you Del. Prosper in wherever you find yourself next!

I remember that fight!

Good times, and a great example of Del being Del, I started off FC'ing for reds, when it started escalating to battleships and I was way over my head Del took over.

I've been in and out of RvB for years. Del has always been around. I wish the best. Truly brilliant work making this infinitely friendly war actually work.

 

But, I've a nit to pick: someone said something about level-headed Texans. I happen to know from personal experience that there aren't any of us. So :P

 

Seriously, good luck to the new leadership. Maybe I'll drop corp and join back up for the hell of it.

Thank you for all you have done Del, as im sure most of what you have done was a pretty thankless job.

Know we appreciate everything.

Your not just a great eve player and leader, your a credit to nice people.

Good guy Del. Seems not quite enough, but nothing but truth.

Del, thank you. You took a rag tag bunch of mongrels living in caves, slaughtering each other on a daily basis to a slightly more sophisticated group of mongrels, living in the finest of housing and still slaughtering each other on a daily basis... All those who came and went along the way contributed and helped make this all happen, but your vision and dedication made this what it is.

Ditto to all of the above - if it hadn't been for Del's Leadership I would probably have ended up a marmite or in some scummy null sec alliance :)

Thanks Del for everything.

 

I wanted to post something unrelated to PvP and RvB, which Del welcomed me with warm arms.

 

I ventured into Industry when Crius launched, and was recommended to Del, since he's the guru.

I contacted him, and immediately without question or doubt, he allowed me to join his Indy corp, and let me use his POS!

Even shared his library of BPOs, which at the time was very generous, seeing as as far as he's concerned, I could be a corp thief!

 

No questions asked, invited to corp, roles given, and not a penny was asked of me ever, in terms of POS fuel.

Del the amount of work you've put in to RvB over these years just boggles my mind, my hat's off to you.
