Shocked and saddened. He truly was the backbone of this project. Pi zero taught me everything I know about newswriting, and working with him on here was a great pleasure. His legacy will live on in every writing project I'm involved with moving forward. Thanks for everything man
I just found out today and still can't believe this happened. John was one of the most hard-working editors on Wikinews. I've always enjoyed interacting with him. Deepest condolences to his family and friends. :-(
Side note: I'm really starting to hate 2021 as well.
My sincere condolences for John's family and friends, and for all the Wikinews contributors, who don't only lose a companion but also their great asset in keeping English Wikinews going. With the great amount of work he gave over here, I can't hardly imagine how he can ever be replaced. He'll be surely missed! Dear John, alias Pi Zero, rest in peace. Dear regards from NL Wikinews.
I am at a loss for words. This is shocking and devastating news, for the Project he so loved -- and for those who loved him. I had occasion to interact with Pi many, many times over the years. He was one of the most prolific reviewers and administrators on the Project, and plugged away tirelessly to keep Wikinews churning. His feedback was always thorough, incisive, and helpful -- I learned much from Pi, about writing articles here, about the art and the science of writing generally, about evaluating facts and information with a healthily critical eye and an ever-analytical mind. I can think of no more fitting a way for his legacy to survive -- nay, to thrive -- than in the continuing collaborativeness of this community in the days, months, and years ahead. Rest in Peace, Pi -- and thanks for everything.
