After repeatedly answering the same questions for newbies hundreds of times I decided to make this pre-introduction video targetted at players who are considering starting a trial of Eve Online. I try to cover the things they should know before they start and clarify some other incorrect notions that new recruits frequently have - e.g.

Things I hear often from new pilots:

You mean I need to pay for a subscription?
Don't those awesome graphics need crazxy hardware?
I hear that Caldari Achura Monks are the best characters.
Why can't I fly with a joystick, I thought this was just an online version of wing commander.
Why can't I walk up to other players and punch them.
Who's concord and why did he just blow up my ship.
So how many of these asteroids do I have to mine to reach level 2?
Why do the devs make battleships so expensive?
When do I get to fly my own Titan?
Isn't Eve that game that's just for griefers?

This forum is probably not the direct audience for this video, but I expect you can pass it on to people who may find it useful, maybe it'll even persuade some players that might otherwise ignore it.

My favourite is probably "How did my ship get destroyed? I thought High sec was safe!"

I'm not sure whether a dev will remove it or not, but you should try posting this in the EVE Trial Citiizens board.
