Yep. This is not a drill. I guess this is a good place to ask questions that I will answer as best I can.

    Sorry @Tube didn't see this as I made my post.

    I'm downright shocked!

    @Robert Khoo I hope you have the best of times doing whatever is next. You're so good to us, and I am sure you will be great to others too.

    I really want to see what he does next. Who will he mold into an unstoppable force now?

    Oh ok

    that makes me feel pretty good then. It's understandable.

    I hope he does great things

    I would imagine that there is going to be an end date some point in the future. He isn't out the door right this second. Do we know when that date is? Will he be at West? Aus? Charity Auction? Will he still be a PA person even if in attendance?

    I remember him talking on the PATV episode dedicated to him a couple years back about how he planned to move on sooner or later

    Thanks for making Penny Arcade profitable enough to support this forum, Khoo!

    Hey Khoo?

    You don't know me much, if at all, and most of these other buncha jerks around here you likely don't know from Adam.

    But the shit you did around PA and the community you helped build meant a whole bunch to me, and I'm willing to bet cold cash that I'm not alone.

    So basically -- thanks.

    Aw, I have the books he got me for Secret Satans lying here on my desk because I should really get around to reading them

    Best of luck and thank you, Mr. Khoo

  • TurielDTurielD Registered User regular
    honestly I'm rather worried... I know he said a while back he wasn't planning on doing PA forever, but this seems so sudden.

    I hope everything is in place for someone to take over his role... but tbh he's kinda irreplacable.

    Yeah, what Rank said

    I've been here for a decade

    I owe Khoo a great debt

    This is sad news. I don't think PA would be around if not for Robert and I'm glad that he was around to put a business in place around a little webcomic. Best of luck to whatever comes next, I'm sure it'll be a great success.

    I believe mid July. If Khoo attends PAX it will be as a suave, immaculate civilian.

    That's plausible, but is there any insight as to how he knew that now was the time?

    There had been a long enough period of calm seas that he felt like he was able to step back without causing too much disruption.

    Probably a really good job offer?

    I've been here 10 years, and been to 5 PAXes, and I for one will very much miss seeing Khoo the great and powerful at the expos. He's a great person, and I know that whatever he does next will be amazing. Good luck to you Robert.

    So many questions! Is this effective immediately, or is he still going to be around for awhile? Is someone already lined up to replace him? Are they hiring someone new? Multiple people? Or just dividing up his superhuman job between 3 or 4 people?

    I imagine after ten years he's managed to build Penny Arcade into a well oiled, self-sustaining machine. He's polished all the rough edges and is now moving onto a new project.

    You're a treasure, Khoo. I wish you luck in your future endeavors.
