NIWA founding figure farewelled
As reported on gaming website Zelda Informer earlier today, one of the key figures in the NIWA project has passed away.
Axiomist, known away from his keyboard as Joshua Paul LeJeune, has been involved in fan-run internet projects since early 2008, where he was part of the Zelda community. He rose to an administrator ranking on Zelda Wiki and held this position for around one year before concentrating his efforts on WiKirby (the wiki... that's about Kirby), which he founded and owned.
He was influential in setting up NIWA, the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance, and was well-known throughout the entire community for the friendly help and advice he was able to give to those users who sought it.
Axiomist will be greatly missed, not only by the people who knew him best, but by the NIWA community as a whole.
He was thirty.
From Bulbapedia, Bulbanews, and the Bulbagarden Network: rest in peace, Josh.
