You'll be missed, Randi. Thank you for your efforts.

Whoever takes over this port has big shoes to fill.

Well damn. Zdoom was the port that got me way back into Doom ages ago and as an (in?)direct result had a pretty big impact on my life way back then. Thanks for everything Randi, good luck to you! 💜

Thanks for all the work, Randi. Zdoom and its derivatives have served as a fantastic stepping stone in not only my career, but the rest of my team as well.
It wasn't always easy to work with, but what spawned from Zdoom is invaluable for many people here, and won't be forgotten by many more.

So few words. It's really one of the hardest goodbyes I could ever seen in my life.

Thank you randi for developing such a nice Doom source port, and godspeed!

This was a shock. Very sad to see you go after all this, but Zdoom has been such a titan; a legend in the Doom community in so many ways, and that's something to be proud of. ZDoom was the port that more or less kept my Doom interest going past the early 2000s, and I thank you for that, possibly more than you'll ever know. Heck, these were even the first forums I registered on that weren't GameFAQs, and I'm still happy to be here.

Please take care out there. Whatever you do next, I'm sure you'll cuss and cry at it no problem.
