Fire Emblem Wiki joins NIWA
NIWA, the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance welcomes a new member today. Fire Emblem Wiki has joined to become the seventeenth wiki in the group and the first to join this year.
Fire Emblem Wiki was created by Eliwood, also known as Yusei, on August 26, 2010, and was originally hosted on Zelda Temple. Since its creation, the wiki's editors have been striving to be part of NIWA, which has been around since February 14, 2010. The wiki has 335 content pages.
Fire Emblem Wiki's join date was symbolic: April 20 is the date on which Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryuu to Hikari no Tsurugi, the first game in their chosen series, was released in Japan.
NIWA is a network of wikis centered around various Nintendo franchises, choosing to be independent from wiki farms such as Wikia. The acronym means garden in Japanese. Bulbapedia was one of the three founding members of the alliance, the membership of which grew rapidly in its first year. NIWA celebrated its first anniversary on Valentine's Day earlier this year.
NIWA staff members hinted that another wiki would be joining the alliance next week.
