History

Amongst the excitement of NIWA being founded, Josh LeJeune decided to create a Kirby Wiki, due to lack of a strong independent one online. Coming online on Janury 24 2010, WiKirby continues its launch with a dedicated community and a still-growing source of Kirby based knowledge.

Along the way, the staff of Kirby Wikia proposed merging with WiKirby during what NIWA members are referring to as "OasisGate". Wikia flexed their muscles of total control by changing some terms of service, and all Wikia skins to a less popular, less customizable, and less wiki-like skin, Oasis. The Oasis skin change caused several wiki communities to migrate to other wiki farms or independent hosting. WiKirby seemed to be one of the few wikis with the potential to have a merger with the Wikia counterpart. However, before all of the finer details could be worked out, a Kirby Wikia staff member informed WiKirby that they were canceling the merge. WiKirby and Kirby Wiki remain separate to this day.

WiKirby's founder, Josh LeJeune, passed away on March 18th, 2011. WiKirby strives to carry on his wish to make WiKirby the best and most comprehensive source of info on the games.

As of 2017, WiKirby's growth has slowed, but it still adds new information on a near-daily basis, and has since gained a formal (and formerly independent) Discord server for the purposes of discussing edits and engaging in other community activities. A great deal of information on older titles is still missing, but new games and developments are kept up with as they come out.
