Aka Red.

So, who am i?[edit]

Long time visitor, now maintainer/editor of all things Doom and beyond on this wiki. Usually forgotten or broken links, new historic additions. Adding new, obscure or forgotten parts of our collective Doom History.

What is useless for many, is useful to some.

Special thanks to Quasar and Xymph for looking over most of my contributions and doing small clean up to my little mess ups.

The H.A/R.M Project:[edit]

It is a documenting and archiving supplement project for the Doom and ZDoom wiki communities. Its purpose is to document all the missing source port links currently existing on the DOOM Wiki and other related Doom obscurities to establish a more complete timeline of DOOM. These may include the documenting of experimental source ports, testbeds and so on. These may or may not have been surpassed by newer ports, but they are part of a port's history and are therefore important or interesting to document. Delivering supplemental historical data for existing ports is also part of the portfolio, aswell as highlighting users that as of now go unrecognized, but deserve to be observed for their contributions even when they are not as visible as others are.
