A Day of Sorrow For WiiWareWavers...

 photo Mario-Nintendo-Sculpture-Princess-Peach-Pieta-Kawaii-Blog_zpsf636d58f.jpg

Clαππαd: WiiWareWave's behind-the-scenes admin John Knight has passed away today and the staff, myself included will be busy preparing an article to pay our final respects to him. As a result the WiiWareWave news staff will not be posting any new news stories or reviews today.

John Knight also reviewed a game or two and posted a few memorable news articles as well. He will be remembered as a hard worker and a good friend.

John Knight: 3/17/1973-10/2/2013 R.I.P. Crying or Very sad

Rukiafan: Feel free to post in the comments to give your condolences. And keep an eye out for our staff article regarding the loss of our amazing colleague in the next day or two.

I'm in love with love! ♥️

John Knight was a great person who worked his butt off. He was a vital part in making WiiWareWave what it is today. He will be remembered always. RIP my friend. Crying or Very sad

@Clannad I'm going to still post one article today.

Wow! This was very unexpected news. Wasn't John still a fairly young man? This is very sad Rukiafan. As one of the main contributors to the site, I think there should be some type of tribute to his memory. Maybe a caption placed somewhere on the homepage, for everyone to see and remember always.

We'll definitely do something to memorialize John Knight...and yes he was fairly young, just 40 years old. I'll post it in this article right now. Crying or Very sad

I think a good way to pay respect to John would be to keep this topic bumped to the top of the board, for the rest of the day.

@Nintenbro are you going to take part in that staff article that Ms. Clαππαd mentioned?
I wish that I could, but I'm not a staff member. Sad

Sure, why not. I didn't know him very well at all, but any friend of Rukiafan is a friend of mine. I'm not too sure where I would begin, though.

His name doesn't sound familiar to me (I'm sure his username would be though), but this is very sad news to hear. My condolences to his family and friends. Sad

Sorry to hear about this, I have been quite busy recently so I've only been able to read the forum topics rather than post in them. :-(
