Title: Nitro Passes Its Torch
Post by: HumanBones on February 18, 2013, 13:35:10
It is with both sadness and excitement that I write to you today about Odamex Nitro and it's future plans. Don't worry, Nitro will still continue as it has since it began some 78 weeks ago, on August 20th, 2011. No, today is a sad day for Hex and myself as we've decided to move on from running Nitro every week. We are both really happy about the way Nitro has managed to form a community within a community. It's been extremely gratifying to see many Doomworld players pop in from time to time, and we have especially enjoyed working in tandem with the 32in24 team on two of their best releases. However, as with most things, there is a time to step aside to give other people a chance, and that time is now.

We'd like to thank the Odamex developers and staff for their continued support, as well as everyone who took an interest in joining these little sessions.

Taking over for us will be Decay, Hypnotoad, and Hendrick who have plenty of ideas of their own. We feel these guys are more than capable of keeping this going, and hopefully you show them as much respect as you showed us. Here is to the future, good luck guys!

We will try our best to keep the legacy going. Oda nitro was part of what brought me to odamex.

Thanks for all the time and effort that both you guys put into this!

Huge thanks to HumanBones and HeX9109 for their dedication and support with establishing Nitro as a community fixture! As you guys know, keeping any league or regular event going in the Doom community requires not only perseverance but sometimes a little creative social engineering as well!

Decay, Hendrick, and Hypnotoad: The rest of the dev team and I are always available to provide technical and moral support and to bounce ideas off. Good luck guys!
