Historian has done a lot of interesting things over the years; working in fast food, mass market retail, auto sales, computer equipment sales, technical trainer, web developer, graphic designer, sous chef and strip club bouncer. All of this prepared him for working with people. With over 12 years of experience with working with web based communities starting with early fan sites for the game “Creatures” to the fan site that grew up to be “Planet Dungeon Siege“, he brings his unique knowledge of social interactions to everything he does.
His love of gaming and gadgets goes much further back.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, a former strip club bouncer is the community manager of 9Dragons.David “Historian” DeWald writes on his site with great pride that he was a strip club bouncer.True, he has all the qualities of a strip club bouncer. Seriously, physically and psychological, he has. What is interesting is that, this experience, in a strip club is a great ‘card’ for the 13 years old children, to whom Acclaim games address.
Reading what he wrote, I can explain myself some aspects of Historian actions and behavior. First, drakenfyre75 that use the word ‘bitch’ repeatedly never was sanctioned, but warned. Why? By whom you are surrounded in a strip club? Guess it… From here Historian has gained the vulgar language that hardly tries to hide it, but which often comes to light. I remember, you all, the episode with the writer of the novel “The Historian” ( ‘suck it…baby’).
Let’s not forget that the chief of VGM team is someone who is not alien to the world of dance, the one and only VGM Bella.Historian is trying to rebuild at Acclaim his lost universe from that bar. No wonder we get to the word ‘bitch’ again.
On this abnormal logic you wonder what is next? Historian tell us in that quote that he worked with doors… that is why he knows so well how to close (locks) the threads on 9Dragons forum.In that environment, you don’t need an explanation when you close or lock a door, it is only to satisfy sexual needs.
This job (in front of closed doors) have brought him a phobia : he can’t bear the words that begin with F ******. When he see one on 9dragons boards, his crisis began and he ban those who just mispelling a word who begins with F(letter)******. You wonder why. Do you need an explanation? What happens behind the closed doors in a strip club?… A word that begin with F ****?… But, because he was only the bouncer, he stood in front of closed doors…
Now, we are all faced with a serious issue: should we accept in a key job who deal with the future generations a man of questionable morality ?
Historian do you believe that the whole story about the questionable morality of a community manager who bans people out of blue because he can’t raise to their intellect will have a positiv impact on Acclaim customers and to public ? Whatever you say is worthless. We don’t blame you because you worked as a bouncer in a strip bar, but have the courage and recognize your level. Do not try to seem more than you are. Do not hide your ‘brain’ behind a FORUM BAN!
For all the girls out there, let’s see some action :
PS : try find the bouncer 🙂
