With the recent launch of Zelda Informer’s side project, Metroid Wiki, there has been a fair amount of talk about wikis around here. Well, if you hadn’t had enough already, it is time for more. ZI viewer, I’d like you to meet NIWA – The Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance. Are you wondering what this has to do with Zelda, and especially, Zelda Informer? Well then, allow me to explain.
Zelda Informer takes a large role in the running of Zelda Wiki.org, along with some of our affiliate Zelda fansites. Zelda Wiki.org happens to be one of the founding sites of NIWA, along with Bulbapedia and Super Mario Wiki. Needless to say, we here at Zelda Informer had a lot to do with it, and no doubt, NIWA is now the ultimate place for you to find information on Nintendo’s three largest franchises. Expect NIWA to grow over time, to include Metroid and Kirby, once those two wikis have gotten themselves off the ground, and even more Nintendo franchises
NIWA was established as an alliance to support independent Nintendo wikis: aka, those not run by some massive company like Wikia, and to encourage the community spirit of wikis. That’s enough from me though. To check it out for yourself, head over to the NIWA website, and make your way over to the forums to discuss anything Nintendo wiki related.
