Hi, I'm Gigi! I'm a Brazilian young adult that has loved Kirby since around early 2009. My first language is Brazilian Portuguese, but I speak English fluently. I also know Spanish in an intermediate level and Japanese in a basic level (currently studying the latter). I can also understand a bit of Italian due to its similarities to Spanish and Portuguese.
I'm an administrator and bureaucrat of WiKirby! I'm also the wiki's current Editor-in-Chief. That means I'm the leading staff member, and the best person to contact if you have any questions related to the wiki and its policies, need help with anything, or need something admin or bureaucrat related to be done like a text replace or account rename: feel free to leave me a message in my talk page or message me on Discord, I'll be more than happy to help!
What I've been doing in the wiki
I've been checking the already existing music pages and editing them to add any missing info I can remember. I've also been uploading audio files to those pages that need them. My goal is to eventually mark more music pages as "Good". I'm also sometimes creating more music pages, starting with more known music of the franchise.
I've been also hunting down missing images for the copy abilities and uploading them here on the wiki, while I expand the big gallery page for the copy ability page. I've been also checking manuals and adding quotes from them to pages, and in the future I plan to upload certain images from them to the wiki.
I've also been extracting images and other assets from games' files and uploading them to the wiki, currently focused on Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
And, of course, while what I just mentioned is my focus, that's not all I do. In general, as the Editor-in-Chief, I am WiKirby's representative and leader, and so I do my best to help the wiki head to the best direction: that means helping users, guiding and overseeing other staff members, organizing projects, defining policies, to name a few duties. I am also very open to suggestions, ideas and feedback, so, once again, feel free to message me if you want! And as an admin and bureaucrat, I help maintain the content of the wiki in various ways, such as taking care of protected pages, deleting articles and files if they are deemed unneeded, and adjusting users' ranks.
Kirby and me
My first Kirby game was Kirby: Squeak Squad, and to this day it still holds a special place in my heart. The game that made be a big Kirby fan however was Kirby Super Star Ultra, which I played and replayed countless times when it was the latest Kirby game. It has been really fun and rewarding to watch the series grow in the over 10 years I've been a fan of it, and I'm always anxious to see more.
My favorite Kirby game has changed a lot in my early years as a Kirby fan, but ever since Kirby: Planet Robobot released, it has held that position. Kirby: Triple Deluxe was my favorite Kirby game before Robobot released, and it still is my second favorite. Kirby Star Allies stole the third position from Kirby's Return to Dream Land when it released, but after the release of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, I started to reevaluate what I love about Kirby games, and currently Return to Dream Land, Star Allies and Forgotten Land are all tied in third place for me. After I play Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe and replay KSA and KatFL, I want to see if I will figure out which of the three I like more.
My favorite Kirby character has always been Kirby himself, but over the past few years Bandana Waddle Dee has grown on me to the point where he's now tied with Kirby as my favorite character of the series. Not surprising, when I see the two interacting I can't help but smile.
My favorite Copy Ability has been Mirror for as long as I can remember, with Magic always following as a close second. I didn't have a third favorite until ESP came, which instantly got that third place. I had ideas for a psychic power like ability before it, so it was so cool to see that happening.
Shinya Kumazaki is a huge inspiration for me and I respect him a lot. Not surprising, my favorite Kirby games were all directed by him.
