Thanks, everyone!

I know I'm posting this in the West sub, but this applies to everyone... I just know that this has the most eyeballs right now.

You've probably heard the news of my departure, and I wanted to say thank you for all the years of really, REALLY amazing memories over the past decade+ of PAXes. It's no secret that I love the show and everything it represents, but the tens of thousands of individual interactions I've had with all of you have made my "career." (It was hard to think of it as a job while I was doing it, and it still makes no sense in retrospect)

Everything on the shows is running smoothly, and the teams at PA and ReedPop have everything under control - their stewardship will keep things humming along nicely. I'm excited to be able to enjoy the show from the sidelines for once. :)

So anyway, thank you again. It's been an incredible ride, and I'm honored to have shared it with you all! You're the best!


Some guy.

    I'm not one for goodbyes, so I'm just going to say thank you in return. You brought every gamers' dream to life by giving us PAX (and a bunch of cool other things) and we're sad to see you go. Good luck in your future endeavors. Whoever hires you next is one lucky bastard. Here is a virtual goodbye party for you. Thanks for all you've done for Penny Arcade!

    Whenever I spot you at PAX, I always try to catch you, just to say thank you. But I guess I'll have to settle for a virtual thank you this year: Thanks for all your hard work over the years and I hope you enjoy whatever comes next for you! I remember at Prime 2012 when the swag bag line was out of control, you were there, not only observing and figuring out how to fix it, but you were running around giving people cups of water. I dubbed cup of water, Khoo-Aid.

    You helped create an amazing event that a community rose up around. Don't forget to come back and visit once in a while, we'll always be there to welcome you home.

    I remember a few years ago getting a personal apology from Khoo when the swag bag line had gotten way out of hand. Thanks for all the great paxes!

    You will be missed.
    And I hope they always have a badge held aside for you. Because without you, this event wouldn't exist as it does.

    Mr. Khoo, thank you for all of the hard work you've done throughout your 15 years with Penny Arcade. Without it I do not believe PAX would be the experience that is is today. You will be missed.

    Thank you Robert. The first time I met you you told me about the time my brother took a punch for you. Hopefully your next job won't require someone doing that. But also hopefully we can still expect to see you on the forum now and again?
